DIY Projects

Want to build a patio cover? Maybe a pergola? Everyone builds differently, even the pro's. It can depend on experience, the climate they live in and who taught them their skills in the first place.

As with any build instructions given on this site, I've tried to keep methods simple so even the complete novice has a chance of ending the day feeling proud. You may be a competent DIY enthusiast with some experience and if so, you can use these designs as a starting point for ideas and add your own touches as you go along.

If you have built your own deck then these DIY projects will be a piece of cake :-)

Minimum tools you will need for these jobs:

  • Saw
  • Cordless Drill
  • Cordless screwdriver
  • A decent level
  • Socket set or at least an adjustable spanner
  • Sledge hammer
  • Shovel
  • Spade
  • Pick axe
  • Wheelbarrow
  • Step ladders
  • Tool belt or pouch
