DIY Construction Videos: Homebuilding, Home Improvement, Building Renovation & Repair
Here is a collection of "how-to" videos and DVD's that you may find helpful for your next construction, home repair, and/or home improvement project. Many of these video titles are in the process of being converted to DVD format, which is starting to make them difficult to find in the older VHS versions. So, if you are unable to find the video format you prefer, you may want to check your local public library to see if the title you would like to view is available there.
You may also want to check Amazon Unbox Movie and TV Downloads. The home design and home improvement categories are a little sparse at the moment, but more titles are being added.
