This article contains some real how to information! not just a bunch of text to get you to click on links. I will give you some real practical advice on how to clean up and repair water damage whether it be from a flood, plumbing leak, or roof leak. First off you need to stop the water! If it is a leak in your plumbing you will probably have to shut the water main off at the street (or pressure tank if you are on a well). If the water is coming from roof damage a tarp will normally work for a quick fix. If it’s from a flood you will need sandbags to try to divert the water away from the house. This will only work for small flooding areas. In a big flood you will just have to wait it out.

Last summer we bought a 1994 Ford Econoline conversion van camper. We had outgrown our charming but cramped and delicate vintage travel trailer, and wanted to take our rv living onto the fastlane (ie. highway) with a conversion van that could go the distance from the midwest to visit family in Florida… and we wanted to take our dog.
Find at where you can buy this product locally at Georgia-Pacific and use your zip code to search for a store near you. Tho different shades of blue and some details in bronze. I like it, but it is not my choice, it stays from previous owner. Jake installing the cabinet after we painted and installed new doors and mouldings. We also had to move an electrical outlet so that it wouldn’t be covered by the upright cabinet, and moved the lighting from the corner right above Jake’s head to its … Read More

This is a small bathroom but it needed a complete overhaul to save it from ‘just plain ugly’ – a designer’s nightmare. From the floors to the walls to the lighting, everything had to be done. I wanted to do it myself to save money on labor. This did not help me save time by any means. Little things like these should never be overlooked. Chic, well-chosen faucets and shower heads can surprisingly turn an ordinary bathroom into a stylish one. Brass faucets with sheen finishes are very classy-looking and … Read More

There are a few things we have planned for the basement area. First and foremost is a bedroom/bathroom combination. This is initially designed for Abby (soon to be twelve) to have a larger space than her currently fairly small bedroom. But it will also be designed for the possibility of one or more of our aging parents to move in with us. Consequently it will need to be designed in an accessible manner, including wider doors and a walk-in shower (no tub). We’d also like it to have a walk-in closet for Abby and/or the parents. It should be large enough to fit a … Read More
When I decided to buy a house for resale, I broke all the rules the real estate professionals tell you about on the infomercials. That turned out to be a costly decision.
As far as other choices are concerned, you can choose a shower door to match or complement your bathroom. Choose a special color or tint, or even a unique etched design. There’s also a wide spectrum of hardware available for frameless shower doors, ranging from vintage-inspired styles to contemporary choices. Thank you Catherine and Jojo for your additional tip. Moving furniture around does provide a nice change, and if you do it right, can make the room more functional too.
I think vintage pendant lights above each sink will look kick ass. So I bought two, for $118 total. They were a little bit more than a wanted to spend, but they are stunning and look like old … Read More

The TBF System is different from other basement finishing systems because it offers solutions for the ENTIRE space, including wall panels, flooring, trim and ceiling options. When you choose TBF, it’s the last time you will have to finish your basement!
Warm air rises, so it makes sense to install heating vents at floor level. Baseboard heating is a good option, but make sure it makes sense for your plan and is easy to tie into your existing HVAC system. For a finished space, you want to make sure you’re not relying on space heaters, so plan carefully. Thank you! We started the project in May and it was completed the beginning of July. Our contractor did everything.
Also, take this pre-renovation time to determine if your laundry room is configured to suit your family’s needs. You may want to add walls (if there aren’t any) or move a wall … Read More

You can add a bedroom, extra living space, or even mount a TV on our strong basement walls. Design an entertainment room for you and the kids! Warnings heeded.
