DIY UK – Everybodys Doing It!

Do it yourself (or DIY) is the term used to describe building, modifying, or the repairing of something without employing experts or professionals. The phrase “do it yourself” came into common usage in the 1950’s in reference to home improvement projects which people might choose to complete themselves.

In the 1980’s there was a television show called DIY UK. It was a forerunner to the many DIY shows that are now regularly scheduled on the cable channels. DIY UKdid not run for very long but it made a big enough impression to encourage other shows to follow suit and encourage people to do it themselves.

If you remember watching DIY UK and were inspired enough to contemplate that garden wall project or the brick built breakfast bar, then why not give us a call.
