iBuiltMyHome is different from other online self build advice websites in that it is actually designed and staffed by season trade professionals who have spent decades working on building sites on a daily basis. We are very proud of the fact that we have spent most of our years actually doing the work, not just writing about it.
Many of the articles and guides contained within this website will more than likely have been started on a building site or in overnight accomodation opposed to plush offices. We like to think we offer a more grounded and realistic approach to offer advice, given that we have actually done many of the tasks involved.
iBuiltMyHome is owned by Carr Restoration Ltd who are industry leaders in all things to do with polished concrete, including onsite services, design and manufacture of diamond abrasives, concrete overlays and repairs products.
In short, an ever growing list of informative and genuinely helpful range of articles and guides. We are working hard to transform our notes, briefs and rough drafts of articles into fully fledged works. Expect new articles to be published each week.
Please remember that we have a small team and most of our time is spent working on building sites throughout the day, so the site will gradually increase in size with about two new articles per week.
