Basement Renovation Costs

Increase the energy efficiency of your home by increasing the insulation in the walls and ceilings. Home built 20 years ago or more have little or no insulation. Thinly insulated ceilings allow heat to escape in the winter and hot air in during the summer. Fiberglass blankets and rolls applied to the ceilings are relatively easy for the home remodeler to handle while loose-fill and blown-in materials are often left to insulation professionals. Wall insulation can be increased by blowing it in through a hole in the wall or during major remodeling when either the wallboard or siding has been removed. The U.S. Dept. of Energy lists the guidelines for homes based on region. Learn more about increasing the insulation in your home here.

In this poor housing market, Quonset huts are popular with new homeowners as well as with retirees looking for an affordable way to move to a warmer climate. A quonset hut is a type of arch-style, semicylindrical steel building that was used in World War II for equipment storage. Since then, Quonset huts have been used for inexpensive equipment storage in commercial and agricultural settings. In today’s housing market, Quonset-hut homes are a popular option, mainly because they’re less expensive to build or buy than other types of homes and can be built in less time.

Creating A Bathroom Spa In Five Steps

I have no experience with design and decorating, none-the-less we are a pretty handy family. We did an addition on our house some years ago. We certainly are not new to D.I.Y. projects.

Before pulling up stakes and moving to a new home, think about putting some effort into home improvement in the home you now have. When you renovate your home, you can customize it to be exactly what you want rather than adapting to the designs of another person. It is a much more efficient way to become happy with your home. Wooden skewer/dowel/rod, or a pencil, or a paintbrush (handle), or a crochet hook etc. – just something long and thin to put a straight, narrow hole in the clay. When I was in France a year and a half ago, I fell in love with my friend Terry’s (Antiques from France) stone sink that was in … Read More

Retro Budget Bathroom Remodel (2)

Bathrooms have come a long way from being merely functional. If you’re considering remodeling or upgrading your bathroom, think about this – a recent survey found the average American spends more time per year in the bathroom than on vacation.

Right now, one of the biggest trends in bathrooms is also one that budget DIYers can pull off with style. The trend is using old dressers as sink pedestals. You simply cut out the top of the dresser to accommodate a sink insert, cut into or remove interior drawers as necessary, and cut holes in the back for plumbing. These dresser sinks” can sell for thousands of dollars in retail stores, but you can easily make your own with a budget dresser, some patience, and the right tools.
