DIY projects for all skill levels

Welcome to BetterLiving's collection of DIY projects. Illustrated plans and step by step instructions are included for each project. We are currently working on several more projects and will be continually adding to this page, so stay tuned.

We think that being handy with a hammer is one of the most life-enriching skills someone can acquire. But even the most experienced handy-people need inspiration sometimes. These plans are designed to be that inspiration for you.

Eventually we hope to have plans, tutorials, and tips for all kinds of projects, from the small (like a rabbit house) through to more serious home building work.

We plan to ultimately have all our detailed plans and tutorials available in both metric (centimetres, meters) and imperial (inches, feet) measurements. Simple plans in our DIY articles section generally have alternate measurements alongside the metric measurements.
