About Us | DIY


If you’re the kind of person that would rather build your own furniture than buy it or if you’re a contractor with lots of construction projects, look no further, DIY is here, and we’d like to welcome you to one of our three showrooms in Dar Es Salaam. Full of brochures, products, experts on building and building project ideas, DIY has everything you need to get your construction project started. What’s even better is that you’ll find everything you need to complete the job at your local DIY store.
