A popular trend is to splurge on granite countertops. Because the bathroom counter is so small, the investment is often fairly low compared to what you’d spend on kitchen counters, for example. If your budget is constrained, you want to convert the existing toilet, bath and shower so they’re easier and safer … Read More

Friends took measurements and started building new cabinet doors. Other friends came to replace the base boards in the bedroom and bathroom. You can have painting parties, but like cooking too many carpenters installing baseboard in a small room is a crowd. This same friend built a frame around the bathroom mirror. Ah, yes Tammy, we Brits know how to do small. But they do say the best things come in small packages! Thanks for your comment and vote up, glad you enjoyed it.
With this in mind we put the finishing touches to the built-in larder e.g. DIY and carpentry, prepared the kitchen walls for decorating, other odd little DIY jobs in the kitchen; and once the kitchen units arrived we put up the wall … Read More
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.
All in all, my hubby did a wonderful job laying tile, hanging bead board and installing trim. It’s because he really, really loves me and it was that love that drove him to finish. LOVE is a powerful thing! It had nothing to do with me nagging him. I don’t nag! In as little as one day, at about half the price! Without the mess, stress & outrageous cost of traditional bathroom remodeling!

If a comfortable abode is your desire, then don’t buy a farmhouse I live in an old farmhouse on 10 acres in Southern Michigan that I purchased about 22 years ago. The house was built before 1874, which is the date of the earliest plat map that shows a dwelling on this property. We found through conversations with people in the area related to the builder and first owner, that he was in the Kaisers Army in Germany. He lost a leg in the war and apparently his hearing from being strapped to the wheel of a canon cart as punishment for some misdemeanor. Apparently he was a carpenter and he must have been good at his trade because this house still stands after nearly 140 years.
We had purchased this charcoal grill to help us during the construction when the power had to be turned off. It served our … Read More

Im off to buy some vinegar and a microfiber mop so I thank you for your help! I really debated whether or not to paint the pine planked ceiling.

You can get more detailed but even this basic scope of work will help tremendously with your bidding process and eventual construction … Read More
Do have an older bathroom with tiled walls? If so, chances are that some of the tiles are cracked or chipped, and the tile grouting might be stained or beginning to come loose. Maybe you’re just tired of the old tile and want a newer, more modern bath. Replacing tile is messy, time consuming, inconvenient, and expensive. The old tile has to be torn out, the backer board has to be replaced, and the new tile and grout have to be installed. Much easier options lie in tub surrounds.
When updating your kitchen island and hanging pendant lighting be sure to coordinate the metal finish to other fixtures and appliances in your kitchen.
