Hello, my name is Bob and this is my new building blog. I am not a professional builder but I have had a passion for DIY ever since I was a little boy. I can remember going through my father's tool box and playing with all the different things I found. I also like to carry out as many jobs around the home as I can. If I can't complete a job, I call in a professional contractor. But once the contractor has finished their work, I will make them a cup of coffee and ask them how they did it. Over the years, I have learnt an awful lot so I thought it would be a good idea to share it here.
