Welcome to ScottiesDIY for homeowners

This site is for DIY projects, “How To” articles, product and tool reviews for my fellow weekend warriors. Whether you are looking for a way to fix something, tackle a project or researching an idea, I hope you gain some knowledge while reading this site.

I am an every day home owner who likes to tinker with things and work on interesting projects. I have been a Do It Yourself guy for 35+ years and counting.   I have family and friends in different trades who I have learned from and am a self taught handyman.

This site helps me track my own progress and projects.  I am putting this site together because I want to provide my experiences with the hopes that someone else can learn something new.
