In 2005 John and Sherry Petersik from Richmond Virginia bought their first home and were soon bitten by the DIY bug, so much so during the transformation of their kitchen they decided to share the experience online with friends and family in a blog titled YoungHouseLove.com or YHL, as it has become affectionately known. It quickly became popular and over the years they have posted more than 3,000 stories and transformed three homes in the process.

The couple have become quite sought after for their DIY knowledge and have featured in numerous magazines and the BBC.

Now a full time occupation for them both their obsession with DIY has led to the creation of two bestselling books and have been able to work out deals for their own lighting collection and range of curtain hooks and rails which can now be purchased at Home Depot and Target retail stores.
