Well, my house was almost completely renovated when I moved in. The only thing I didn’t replace were the kitchen cabinets, so I’d probably do those. I’m not sure how much cabinets run these days, and I’m sure it depends on wood, how many, etc. If I had enough money left after the cabinets, I’d consider a new roof. If you then find you don’t get on with this then the Dremel itself is a handy little tool that has hundreds of other practical DIY uses around the home.

Take out the soffit – install a few taller cabinets and glaze in your chosen color and then you have a completely new kitchen without the expense and time of a complete renovation. Great Job!! Where did you … Read More

Finishing A Basement

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.

All the doors still need their topcoat … 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
