About Us

Welcome to buildsomething.com — the exciting new online community for do-it-yourself project builders! We’re glad you’re here! 

At its heart, BuildSomething is all about project plans and the project-building experience. You’ll find plans for great projects that are organized by space and by type, which makes it really easy to find the inspiration you want, plus the step-by-step instruction you need to turn that inspiration into reality. 

You’ll see as you search that some of these plans are “Certified,” which means they were designed and tested by the staff of project professionals at BuildSomething. These plans have been checked and rechecked for accuracy and completeness, so you can build with confidence. Plus, we have a professional Support Team that is here to help you with questions about BuildSomething Certified plans.

The rest of the plans you see here are contributed by BuildSomething members like you who have a passion for projects and for showing others how to build them!

That’s right. At BuildSomething you can share plans for the original projects you create. You don’t need to be a design professional to do it, either. If you can put together basic instructions, add a few simple photographs or illustrations, and share a list of the materials and supplies you used, then you can contribute plans for projects you’ve created to buildsomething.com! We make it incredibly easy. Just click on “Add Plan,” and we’ll take you through it step by step.

BuildSomething is about more than just plans, though. It’s a Community where you can connect with others who share your passion for building your own projects. As a member, you’ll be able to rate and review Certified and member-created plans, and see how others rate and review your plans. Plus, you’ll have your own profile page where you can share photos of the projects you create, see what other members are building, follow other members, and have your own followers. And you’ll be able to ask questions, share your building tips, and offer advice in our forums

With all of these awesome features—and with an always-growing selection of amazing step-by-step plans—buildsomething.com really is the best place to find do-it-yourself project plans, along with passionate project builders who like to explore, build, and share. Join BuildSomething today!
