Home Building Projects Need Online Training Courses

Having just come back froma really fab family christmas, I realise it was a tremendously educational and uplifting time.   We were staying in a very old cottage that the parents had bought when first married.  They have gradually done all the conversion and rebuilding work turning two tiny cottages into the one long beauty that stands resplendent at the end of the lane.  The owners never had any building lessons, had no experience at all of how to install an RSJ or water pipes to new radiators.  Installing a boiler would throw most folk into an absolute quandry.  They just got books from the library, spoke to other folk who’d completed similar jobs and learnt by trial and error.   Both owners laugh about their experiences but agree that online educational courses for home building and plumbing would be wonderful, an improvement on the brilliant but sometimes frighteningly incorrect home made youtube stuff available today
