Home DIY


The term DIY or Do It Yourself is used to describe the building or repair of an object without the help of an expert in this field.

Do it yourself

People use DIY for all sorts of jobs around the home such as putting up shelves or fixing a leaky tap. DIY became really popular during the 1950s and this was the time that a lot of tools became available on the market for people to buy. Some people do not enjoy "do it yourself" and will only do it when it is absolutely necessary. Other people see it as a hobby and they will actively look for things around the house that they think they can improve on. Self repair can even be turned into a career as some people will advertise their services as a handyman and carry out small jobs in other people's homes which they are then paid for.
