Summer Rewind

Posted by John on September 17th, 2013

It was a good summer.  I only got sun burned once.  Or twice.  Got to the beach a few times.  Good stuff.  As far as home improvement projects go, this summer wasn’t too bad either.  Let’s take a look back and see what we got done and what we postponed. We started off the summer […]

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 […]

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 […]

Stroller Storage

Posted by John on July 30th, 2013

Lately, we’ve been posting quite a bit on web design and development.  If it’s not something you’re really into, I apologize.  We’ll be switching back to home projects full time very shortly.  If you have been enjoying them, or at least putting them on your “must read at some point” list, we won’t be abandoning […]

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 […]
