Architecture and Design

We Believe You Can Build Your Own Home.

 Since 1974 we've helped thousands of students learn the ins-and-outs of timber framing, general construction, and building science.

Our goal is to make timber framing and home building as easily accessible as possible.

We've captured the exact same curriculum from our in-person courses and created a refined video-based versions of them.

Learn at your own pace from anywhere in the world.


Wilker Do's DIY Projects

Hey there, I’m April Wilkerson. I’m the creator of Wilker Do’s. You can call me a Maker, a DIYer, a Woodworker or Metalworker.

I make stuff that I want/need instead of buying it or hiring it out. It’s my goal to be able to look around my home and have a hard time finding something I didn’t make with my own two hands.

I hope you are able to find a project here that inspires you to pick up a tool you didn’t think you could use and build something you didn’t think you could build. You absolutely can. Don’t be afraid just because you don’t know how (yet).

If you have the motivation to build something, take it one step at a time.

Even if it takes you a week to build a box, you should still build that box.

Our DIY plans come with step-by-step instructions and are easy to follow. Before getting started, make sure you have the appropriate tools and materials.

April Wilkerson’s DIY Templates have everything you need to get the job done right. With Wilker Do’s, you’ll have everything you need to build what you need, when you need it.
