DIY PROJECTS to help pass the time during lockdown

Ever since I was a kid, I enjoyed tinkering about in my Dads tool shed and watching him make and break stuff. Recently I embarked on a large project which would end up as a summer house in the garden.

I spent most of my spare time during 2016 to manage to complete the project.

But this sort of project is ideal to keep anyone sane and busy during those long lockdown months. This is truly a terrible time for everyone but we can help each other by keeping busy and staying safe. And learning new skills along the way is a bonus!


I am very proud of my work although it took longer than anticipated and I encountered a number of problems along the way.

I hope this can inspire other like minded people to do the same if you ever want to build your own garden shed or summer house or anything else - from scratch! Then go for it! You won't regret it once it is done! You will be proud of your accomplishment.

As well as pulling apart laptops when I was a kid and always interested in how things worked, I was also interested in DIY, I never shy away from any projects, big or small!
