I reckon there's lots of people on here with cool DIY projects they've done or would like to do. We can share tips and knowledge, ask for advice and show completed projects. Anything, from the small to the big that you've made or had a go at or would like to have a crack at. Get the creative juices flowing.

Sorry for flooding this thread, but just dug up some Indo reno pic's i might have posted some of these before, they are quite old.

About ten years or so ago, we bought an old village house in Mentawais right on the beach (800m2 land), was a lot of fun for a while, surfing with mates, going exploring inland on motorbikes down dirt tracks and just fucking about with boats and doing reno's on it with scrap timber etc, and drinking bintangs around the fire at night while noodling on crappy Indo acoustic guitars.

But unfortunately the termites and storms got into it, so it's pretty much just a shed now, but will rebuild a nice villa/house sometime.

Before (old kitchen)

Turned into bathroom :D

Toilet before

And after

Toilet itself is pretty clean for Indo, i think my mother inlay cleaned it, we use to take the whole family there to hang out, they loved it.

And a rustic seat we made, notice the classic Indo assortments indo ciggies(not mine) coffee stained glass and bottle of aqua.

And house taken from water to give you an idea

And view from front yard, in the distance is a few quality waves (actually where i broke my ribs and punctured my lung)

Gets sick sunset's too, man i miss this place

View from front of house looking down the street/path into the neighbourhood, great mellow village vibe, has changed a bit now though few more places, but luckily coconut palms all remain

Yeah Suksma is Thank you in Balinesse, but my wife in Javanesse.

hard to tell from the pic but It's a carved wooden sign that was from a Indo/Bali shop in Melbourne, our friends gave it to us as they closed the shop.
