ebuild is sad to announce its closure - it has become too time and resource intensive to develop, manage and maintain.

However, ebuild will remain on-line in archive mode (ie no posting facilties) for several weeks so that users can use it as an information resource.

Hello everyone.

We are two newbies living in the south of Kent and new to renovating. Just finished one house (Yvonne's) which was mainly just renovation, that was a very steep learning curve - quite a few headaches, some unexpected hurdles, but in the end a successful outcome.

Now we are about to start our next project (Stuart's house) which includes building a small extension - with no experience we are trembling in our shoes and hope we can get some guidance and support here.

Stuart and Yvonne :D :D

Hello Stuart & Yvonne :)
There's a lot of subject matter in the Ebuild library so dig around and we'll fill any gaps. ;)
Please feel free to also post info on how NOT to do things ( as per your experiences ) as that's the info that's invaluable.
Regards, Nick.

Hello Both, you are most welcome. Welcome to what becomes a quiet obsession. Reading ebuild posts. There's a mobile version, so you can even read ebuild posts in the smaller rooms of the house.

You'll get used to the in jokes, the bad jokes and the Welsh plumber (Nick above; he's tame). But most of all what hooked me: the support and positive attitude.
