DIYHI – For Resourceful Self Starters
It seems that now more than ever before people have the ability to locate and produce all kinds of items themselves. This fact has given birth to the DIY space. With a simple search and download, you can have a set of plans for just about any kind of object, decor or furniture. With that being the case, many are finding that improving the home has virtually unlimited potential. This site is geared toward helping do-it-yourselfers learn about DIY home improvement projects, ideas, and in some cases plans. Here is an overview of some of the main areas.
One thing that all do-it-yourselfers have in common is that they latch onto an idea and make it a reality. But whether they come up with the idea themselves or learn of it on the Internet, they know a good idea when they run across it.
Since the idea phase of the DIY process is such an important part of the overall operation, There is a complete section of this site dedicated to ideas. In the ideas area, you can read about the ins and outs of particular DIY ideas. Also, there may be articles or posts discussing particular challenges that you might face when taking on a given DIY project. Which leads nicely into the next topic.
The do-it-yourself mentality consists of either taking the idea and producing something unique or creative. The concept can often times be transferred into a variety of specific tangible products. So, having a section of the site to discuss and even recap these efforts, seems logical.
The projects area of the website will be the home of specific DIY projects that can be absorbed and perhaps implemented by any readers that find one of the projects to be suitable for their skill set. However, as any artisan knows all-to-well, at times blueprints may be needed for complex projects.
If you spend a little time on the Internet searching for things related to DIY you will no doubt run across sites offering DIY plans for just about every kind of project. It only makes sense. Some ideas for projects are rather simple, but some are made easier by means of DIY plans.
You may find spreadsheets, pdfs, and even word processor documents listing all the necessary tools, supplies, and measurements that the do-it-yourselfer needs to complete the job.
So if you are inclined to take on a project and want to share the results of your work. Feel free to send me a photo of the completed project or the plans so that others might be able to get the same satisfaction from their hard work.
