Curbly is a community of people who are into DIY home projects. Members show off completed projects, share tips and know-how, all the while saving money on contractors.

It's a young growing community. Members have a profile area where they can post blog-like entries of their DIY projects. Posts range from decorating tips to money-saving DIY plubming tutorials!

Among my favorite posts are...

There is also a questions area where members post questions for the community to answer. Here are some questions I clicked on.

The brains behind the operation are two people we can identify with.

  • Bruno Bornsztein, who has spent the last three years fixing up his first home, wanted a place "where people can celebrate all the hard work they put into their homes".
  • Ben Moore is an apartment hopper who's "always looking to do more with less, add style without hassle".

Their vision is more than a boon for fixer-upper home owners, it's a place where people are inspired by each other's projects and creativity.

We believe that with the right tools and know-how, people can create a place that fits their personality. That's why Curbly is dedicated to bringing out the best in you and your home.
