DIY: Do It Yourself Exteriors (March)

Tutor/Facilitator: Rebekah Insoll
1 Saturday - On Saturday 23 March from 9am-4pm

The outside of your place is the public face of it, and kerb appeal matters to anyone driving past or visiting. Is the entranceway obvious? Does the mailbox suit the style of your house? Do you use the outside area as fully as you might? How are the fences and paths? A lot of exterior work can be done without Council consent but a long-term plan is needed to work towards. This course involves some hands-on practise on a smaller scale to allow you to learn the methods.
