Welcome to Bitterroot DIY! I’m Tylynn and I’m so glad you stopped by.


I started woodworking a few years ago and, when we bought our first house, jumped headfirst into home improvement and remodeling. I share free woodworking plans and home improvement tutorials for anyone else looking to DIY their homes.

I grew up in a family of builders, engineers, and architects. They were building their own cabins, homes, shops, furniture, and everything else before “DIY” was even a thing. So I guess you could say I was pre-disposed to end up in that line of work one way or another! I earned my degree in Civil Engineering (focused on structural) and went to work for a bit before deciding to stay home with kiddos. I started this site while I was working and just kept right on with it when I became a stay-at-home-mom.

My goal here is to share practical tips, tricks, and advice so that anyone – no matter your skill level – can build your home the way you want it. Whether that means home remodeling, home improvement, or woodworking, I want to make it accessible to you.

Grab your tools and let’s get building!
