Home Improvement Resources

Need ideas for your next home improvement project? We have online resources from the library and the web to get you started.

Library Resources

These online resources are available anywhere with your Fauquier County library card.
  • Download magazines to your device or computer. Titles include Do It Yourself, Dwell, Handyman, and House Beautiful.
  • For more magazine articles, search our Home Improvement Collection for articles on home improvement, architecture, and interior design.

Recommended Websites

  • DIY Network - Instructional articles and videos from the television network. (Unfortunately, a lot of ads.)
  • Federal Trade Commission: Homes - Articles to help you save money, conserve energy, and avoid scams during the home improvement process.
  • Going Green Publications - Information from the federal government about energy efficiency topics.
  • Hometalk - Hometalk is a social network for home improvement. You can browse homeowners' projects and, if you choose to register, submit questions to the community. Since most contributors aren't professionals, you might want to consult a second source before trying anything complex.
  • This Old House - Instructional articles and videos from the creators of the television series. This website does have a lot of ads.
  • Learn DIY Skills on Youtube - This article from the website MakeUseOf lists popular Youtube channels for home improvement videos.
You can also visit our branches to browse our collection of home improvement books, magazines, and DVDs.
