Refurber: DIY Advice

refurberlogo.pngRefurber is a new social and reference website for the Do-It-Yourself crowd from Perth, Western Australia based Vibe Capital, makers of parenting site Minti.

On Refurber, users are able to share advice on a wide range of home improvement related topics. Content throughout the site is user generated with articles being tagged, rated and commented on by the greater community to encourage integrity and relevancy in the information created.

It’s a decent resource if DIY is your thing and the layout is well thought out and accessible.

The backend is the same as Minti; the “vibEngine” API powers both sites. The vibEngine platform is being licensed to other vertical sites in a move that sees Vibe evolve from site creator to solutions provide. The first licensed partner of vibEngine is the niche city focused site with further sites running vibEngine launching in the coming months.
