About Us

More and more people across America are taking up the challenge of DIY and improving their homes. In some cases, they are even building them from scratch!

In many cases, a lot of DIYers and home builders are novices and have never so much as picked up a saw or shovel before.

We are here to prove that it is completely possible to go from absolute beginner, to accomplished home builder, in a matter of only a few months.

Our mission is to empower and give confidence to the homeowners of America – and maybe some aspiring ones too!

Every month, we feature one major project and go into depth, showing our readers how it can be achieved. Unlike some publications, we do not assume a huge prior knowledge. In fact, even if you are a complete beginner you should soon be able to find yourself understanding the process.

Our website has a full glossary, of all the terms associated with DIY and it is available to download. This has been of immeasurable help to our many novice home builders and DIY enthusiasts, over the year.

With excellent photography, we aim to show you exactly how to fix that leaky roof or build your own extension.

It’s not as scary as it looks and we provide a friendly hand, to talk you through each stage of your major project.

If the going gets tough, you can consult our panel of experts. Every month, we publish three reader’s problems. Our expert artisans look at the problems of homeowners’ broken DIY dreams and help them to fix it.

You can also seek assistance over on our Facebook page, where our friendly team frequently answer readers’ questions. Additionally, many readers have found other DIYers eager to help them with their problems on our social media page.

Our latest issue is available on the newsstands on September 23rd.
