Update : Cabin Bathroom Phase 1

Hey-a! Friends. I got a project done on time! I had planned on using August to demo and redo phase 1 of our cabin bathroom and I actually did it! Normally I try and save this sort of inside project for the winter months, BUT because phase two involves a lot of tiling and I prefer to do my tiling outside (especially since we don’t have a garage) I needed to get phase done this summer so I could start phase two in the fall before the snow hit – which I’m sure will be happening before November. You need water to run a tile saw, and I prefer my water unfrozen. READ MORE

Converting a Hardwired Light to a Plug-in & a Porch Update!

Sometimes you see a coooool light fixture and then you come to find out it’s hardwired and the space you envisioned it for does not have an electric box for a hardwired installation. Bummer, right? That happens to me a lot, and with the bits of electrical light fixture knowledge I have acquired over the last few years I now ...
