[diy] Robert Clark's bookmarks - DIY & Home Improvements

My wife and I moved into a large Edwardian house at the end of 1996. We are slowly renovating and repairing it as it had fallen into a state of disrepair under the previous owner. With so much work to do, we are always looking for tips and guidance on how to do the various jobs ourselves. For anyone in a similar situation, some of these sites may offer assistance.
