    Looking to hear stories from DIYers

    Hi there,

    I work for Lion Television and joined the forum to ask people to get in touch with their DIY disaster stories.

    We are offering up to £40,000 to possibly help you get moving again.

    If you have had problems and are living in a home fraught with DIY mistakes please get in touch now!

    You can reply here, I will check back, or email diy@liontv.co.uk with your contact details and I will call you to have a chat.

    Otherwise, call us on 0141 331 4983. I hope to hear from some of you.

    Many thanks,
    Pauline

    I can forsee the future: nobody will be paid £40k. Why no money for the poor Craigslist guys in Newcastle???

      I dropped 5 litres of buttermilk emulsion paint on a path once. Does that count? Can I have £40k?

        We are all brilliant and don't have DIY disasters.

        Try Deborah Orr and her disaster in not having her Victorian Barratt House properly checked.

            I remember two brothers who tried to DIY underpin their house.

            It took 3 houses in the terrace to the bottom of the hill they used to be situated on.
            Based on the information posted, I offer my thoughts.Any action you then take is your liability. While commending individual effort, there is no substitute for a thorough review of documents and facts by paid for professional advisers.

              Why won't those nice people at Lion make a programme about disasters made by "professionals"... The local housing association broke into a garage of mine earlier this week (silly boys didn't simply drill the lock out..), irreparably damaged the door & the HA has now offerred to replace with a brand new one...

              Or all those "professionals" in the banking industry...

              Or, even better, programme covering disasters made by Lion,...

              Weird places to ask for input - women in business!!!

              - and does the programme being made in Glesga have any significance....

                Or DIY disasters involving lions (and lionesses).

                  I jumped off a ladder straight into a tray of paint - I'd love £40K for that and I'd even jump in a bit more paint for free :-)
