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

Bathroom Remodel Cost Estimator

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!

Here’s a photo of swatches showing the colors of the elements I HAVE to work with (interior dash … Read More

Check Out My Parents’ Bathroom Remodel

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

Bathroom Remodel

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.

The Great Bathroom Remodel (2)

I thought I’d share a new remodel project that I’m working on. The house that my girlfriend just moved into is really great but the Master Bath has some issues. Since they were going to remodel the Basement anyway they decided to tackle the bath at the same time. Here is the Bath as it was when the house was for sale.

The main bath of our 1940s, lath-and-plaster home has several problems, only one of which is storage. The plumbing is stacked with the downstairs bathroom, and eventually, we will have to do a full gut and re-build. The main bath is only used as a guest bathroom right now. We use the downstairs bathroom – the one with the shower – for our bathroom, so we decided to keep the fixture placement until we are ready to renovate the basement.

A bathroom vanity can be one of the … Read More

What do you think? Would you hire us? I think we’re totally burnt out on remodeling! Too bad because I have dreams for the other bathroom and the laundry room…not to mention the kitchen! Plywood utility panels to the rescue. They come in 8′ x 4′ sheets for around $24/each. After a little wood conditioner and stain, we ripped them into strips and nailed them right over the existing beam.

One of the challenges with a conversion van is figuring out where to look for parts and information; especially because our van’s previous owner couldn’t provide any owners manuals. The part of the reno that I found the most difficult was creating a new opening … Read More
