On to the Next Project
It feels like we had a lot going on in the second half of 2016. At work, with family, and at home. My mind is always working when it comes to the house, but with our busy schedule and some major house repairs in the forecast, I was hesitant to spend money o...

Better Late Than Never? (Christmas 2016, Outdoors)
So... This post is way late.  These were my Christmas decorations for the exterior of my house, but let's just call them winter decorations, ok?  Most of them will carry through the winter just fine, and will keep my front entry from looking totally bleak, ...

I know people say that life slows down in Summer, but I think it's the opposite for us.  The last couple months have been a total blur.  Maybe it only slows down for people with school-age kids and teachers?  I hope some of you out there are enjoying some p...

On the Deck: Plants Are a Must
As I introduced last week , after years of planning and construction (in 2 phases!), we are really excited to have a fully functional deck.  I don't have all of my "deck projects" finished, but it is at least at the point where I can sit out there and final...

A Solution to a Tiny Garage
Hi Friends! Ok, this post doesn't have any inspiring DIY projects, or great before and after photos, but it does have some practical, reality-of-not-living-in-a-mansion thoughts about how to make our house work for us.  Maybe a few of you out there can rela...

Deck - Part II
OK friends, this one is big.  At least to me.  We can finally call our deck, at least the structure, finished.  *Sigh of relief* In case you haven't been following along, here is what we started with: Old, worn out, and in some cases improperly built.  Back...
