Tha Donnie 'Dòtaman' MacLeòid a' sealtainn dhuinn gu bheil taobh eile air le sreath ur DIY! Le òrd is sàbh na làimh, tha Donnie ag obair air an taigh aige fhèin. A' cùmail sùil gheur air cosgaisean, tha Donnie a' cleachdadh seann stuth a-rithist mar 'units' agus 'worktops' airson dreach spaideil a chur air a' chidsin.

Tha e a' dèanamh obair-leasachaidh air an t-seòmar-shuidhe; teine ùr èifeachdach agus tòrr, tòrr comhdaich-bhlathachaidh fon làr! Tha Donnie cuideachd a' toirt seachad beachdan airson ar taighean a chumail ann an òrdugh- mar eiseimpleir a' cur phìoban ùra air oir a' mhullaich, a' càradh làr saimeant a tha briste, agus pròiseactan innteannach mar mullach bòrd ùr a dhèanamh de dh'fhiodh-làir a bh' aige mar-thà.

Ge bith dè th' ann; beachdan ùra, doighean-obrach, neo misneachd airson toiseach tòiseachaidh, tha rudeigin aig DIY le Donnie airson a h-uile DIYair.

Well loved TV personality Donnie MacLeod shows us a different side in this new series- his love of DIY! Armed with a hammer and saw, Donnie fearlessly undertakes work on his own home.
