Garage Improvement Wrap-Up

Posted by John on September 15th, 2013

It’s finally starting to get a little chilly around here.  I’m not calling it Fall yet though.  I’ll wait until the official start of Fall before I give up on summer.  I have one week left.  I’m going to enjoy it.  In the meantime, we finally finished up our garage improvement series that we started […]

We hope all of our American friends had a safe and enjoyable Labor Day!  Our weekend was filled with family visits and some much needed down time.  Today we’re going to show you how we finished up our new garage outlet and how we added a workbench charging station. Let’s start with the garage outlet. […]

Using Hooks for Organization

Posted by John on August 8th, 2013

Back to home improvement projects.  One of the big goals we had in our Spring and Summer Plans post was to really straighten out our garage situation.  When we started, it was cluttered, loaded with spiders and insects and needed to be cleaned as well as repainted.  So far this summer, we managed only a […]

Bug Proofing Garage Windows

Posted by John on July 1st, 2013

This past weekend, between family reunions and thunderstorms, I was able to validate a new idea for keeping bugs out of my garage windows.  As I mentioned in my last post on this topic, we get a good amount of bugs in the garage.  We live in a rural area and are up against a […]

Keeping Bugs off the Windows

Posted by John on June 19th, 2013

Full disclosure:  All the windows on the first floor of our home have temporary shades.  In case you were keeping count, that’s three years we’ve been here.  I guess it’s not too bad, since they’re fabric.  We still intend to replace them with something of a slightly higher quality.  In our kitchen and family room, […]

Happy Father’s Day to all of our fathers on earth and in heaven!  We hope everyone had a great Sunday.  Lisa followed a couple of my gift suggestions from our last post (#2!), so I did pretty well.  🙂 On Saturday, I managed to install a pegboard in our garage above my workbench.  While I […]

Garage Organization Ideas

Posted by John on June 4th, 2013

When work on a major home improvement project finishes up around here, we’re usually left with one space that looks pretty sharp.. and one space filled with scrap wood, empty boxes and tools that haven’t made their way back to their proper place.  Those sacrificial spaces are typically the basement and the garage.  Now since […]

Garage Shoe Rack Part 2

Posted by John on November 4th, 2012

Happy Monday!  We had a mildly productive weekend.  Not gonna lie though, we’re much slower at home projects since the summer ended.  Here’s the deal, I’m taking a grad school class that requires weekly homework assignments on top of being parents, working full-time and doing general everyday life stuff like cooking, cleaning, eating, etc.  I’m […]

Outdoor Light Timer

Posted by John on October 21st, 2012

Hey guys!  Hope you’re all doing well.  We had another not so productive weekend, only got a couple small things done.  Small steps though, right?  This week, I’m hoping to get to fix some cancerous rust on my Jeep and maybe get some more work on the garage shoe rack.  Yesterday I installed a light […]
