Welcome To DIY Know How

Located In Birmingham United Kingdom, having worked in the building trade for some 25 years. I am  passionate about helping people with there problems, to be honest 90 percent of the time you can sort many problems yourself with just a small amount of guidance saving you stacks of cash along the way. Our world is full of DIY stores selling everything you will need, so its time for us all to get motivated and start learning new skills.

Do It Yourself is a vast subject to cover, lets face it most things can be classified as DIY, (Cooking, Gardening, Making your own wine, Growing Vegetables) all of which i am involved in and will be covering, making this a one stop shop for information and reviews.

What have I learned   

House Building, extended them, converted them, decorated them, heating them, plumbed them, in fact just about everything in them….. I also grow my own vegetables down the allotment, my garage is a wine and beer brewing room and my kitchen is what i call my little heaven, where I experiment with different styles of cooking from around the world.

Why the blog.

Most of us turn to the tinternet for Information, Cooking recipes, decorating, the latest fashion tips and so on. I see the internet like a massive library of books with a very simple way of searching through those books, finding exactly what you want. That excites me and gives me inspiration to add my book. Starting my blog has been on the cards for the past 5 years, not knowing where to start, i’ve just hit 50 and figured its now or never.
