Guides

In 2020, I was browsing through the various Facebook groups reading up on some posts and something that I commonly saw was many members asking various questions. These questions in different groups were usually the same questions and I thought to myself, "There should be something written down for new members to refer to which would answer these questions". 

From there, the New Builder Guides were created. I started off with the most common one I saw at the time which were Control Systems. The guides were written mostly for New Builders but also for those experienced builders who many not be aware of other options available. 

The guides are written by my own research and asking for experience within the community. I will often post on forums and in groups asking for peoples opinions on various things to make sure this guide is written by the builders, for the builders. So far the feedback I have received from my guides have been very positive and I will continue to make guides that benefit the community.

You can view and download my guides below.
