In connection with a small and highly experimental Wiki project I am
I was wondering if there were some good 'free' sources of useful
sources of DIY,
construction and building information?
The Project concerned is currently termed Wikiventory -
An explanation is here: http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiVentory
Given the nature of Wikiventory, what I am looking for is some simple
of various Construction and DIY terms, and how they relate, so I can
test the ideas
mentioned in the above..
- Brick Wall = "A brick wall is made of [[brick]]s and [[cement]]"
- Brick = " A brick is a construction element, It is made from fired
- Cement =" Cement is a binding material used in construction, It is
made from [[Chalk]] and [[Clay]]"
- Window = " A window is an element in a wall There are many types of
and then go onto list say types of window like 'Sash Window' 'Skylight'
Does anyone know of any good sources where I would find suitable
(I am already aware of Wikipedia)
