The online community of DIY experts, enthusiasts and newbies - for real answers to real problems in real time
The DIY Together concept
Home improvement is now a big part of our life. For some of us it is a necessity, for others a statement, a passion or a hobby. We live in an insecure world so our homes are more important to us than ever before. It has become our castle - both physically and emotionally. It not only provides shelter and comfort but the place where we can relax, socialise, be ourselves, conduct our life. It's our cave, our sanctuary - our own bit of space. In the homogenised world of taste & style our home is the place where we can truly express our personality.
No wonder that DIY has become so popular and so interesting. We are bombarded with images of beautiful homes, international styles and chic makeovers whilst affordable power tools and modern materials make things achievable faster and easier. The market is full of books, TV programmes, DIY stores - yet we are more confused. Which product shall we get - which tip shall we follow? There are also many, some very good, web sites offering home decorating tips & ideas. Online shopping and sourcing of power tools, appliances, finishes and furnishing is getting better and easier. However, there isn't a site that offers all of these facilities under one roof and in interactive way. DIY Together aims to fill this gap by providing an online venue to help people who like to do things themselves. We are hoping to create a web-place for people to share their problems and ideas, to help each other and to find the best tools, materials and finishes for their projects. Our site will hopefully bring together the DIY community.
