The Hivemind Improving Homes

Public description

A community dedicated to helping people with advice on personal home improvement projects. If you are new here, please review posting/commenting guidelines below.#### Description

If you are new, start here with an overview of the sub

Only text posts are allowed here. To include images, upload to third party site like imgur.com and share the links in your post.

This sub is for redditors to ask advice on personal home improvement projects. If you are asking a question, be as detailed as possible and include your location and multi-angled pictures if you can. Also feel free to post projects that you've completed (not in-progress). Project-sharing posts must include narrative as well as basic info such as product details (brands/prices/purchase locations), overall budget, and a brief description of the project in the reddit text itself (not in the imgur album). We want to keep the conversations here in the sub, not just drive it away. These guidelines, and more, can be read here before posting. This sub is NOT for questions from contractors, flippers, landlords or tradesfolks - we only allow discussion surrounding improvements made to your personal home.

Comments must be on-topic, helpful, and kind. Name-calling, abusive, or hateful language is not tolerated, nor are disrespectful, personal comments. No question is too stupid, too simple, or too basic. We're all here to learn and help each other out - enjoy! reddiquette!

We do not endorse any contractors, and proceeding with a contractor you've met via this sub should be done at your own risk. This is not a place to advertise products and or services. Any links to a website or blog will be removed. Offenders may be banned.
