DIY provides everything you need to know about home maintenance, repair, and improvement, from fixing a dripping tap to putting up a wall to planning and replacing a bathroom. The book starts with home assessment, showing how to conduct routine maintenance checks inside and outside and how to plan projects, taking you through the tools and materials you'll need for each task. Each section provides an overview of a specific part of the house or area of improvement, while the core of the book consists of step-by-step spreads that lead you through a huge range of DIY tasks -- from simple to advanced. Fully adapted for Australian homes and updated to include advice on how to make your home greener, this is your one-stop DIY bible.
