A rotten or damaged suspended timber floor, on the groundfloor of a house, can usually be replaced with a solid concrete floor if you wish. However, you should always check with your local building control officer as this can effect the ventilation properties of the house. Additional insulation and waterproofing may also be required, so investigate carefully before going ahead.

When hanging a picture, putting up shelves or attaching anything to a partition wall, it is important to find and fix into one of the wooden studs that make up the wall structure. Trying to fix into plasterboard alone is a recipe for disaster.

Patches of mould and mildew are a common problem in bathrooms, basements and other areas where damp and condensation are combined with a lack of ventilation. Not only do these patches look unsightly, but they can also cause medical problems if left untreated. Simply painting over patches of mould and mildew might hide the marks for a while, but unless the mould spores are killed, it is unlikely that will be the last you see of them.

Planning, building, altering or removing a stud wall are all home improvement projects that are manageable by most competent DIY-ers. Being able to completely change the layout of a room, add storage space or a bathroom or turn two rooms into one, without having to call in an expensive builder has got to be worth considering. http://www.diy-extra.co.uk/10-tips-for-building-stud-walls.html
