An important part of living sustainably is using what you already have instead of buying new. DIY projects can save you money while giving your home and garden a unique look.
If you are looking for a bargain to restore, try second hand stores, garage sales or scrap yards. Farm clearing sales are also worth a try.
If you know someone who owns a farm, there are usually spots on the farm where the previous owners have dumped their rubbish for the last hundred years – these are great spots for picking, but make sure you have the owners permission first!
These free projects have varying levels of difficulty. When it comes to home restoration always ask an expert if in doubt. Always bring in an expert for electrical, plumbing and construction. The risks are not worth it.
