Installing a Stair Runner

For the last year I have been slowly removing the wall-to-wall 40 year old carpet that plagued our cabin. Can you imagine how many wet feet and soggy bodies this carpet had seen? Barf. The majority of the carpet was ripped out the minute we closed on the place exposing the hardwood floors underneath.

Going Digital with Analog Media

At home, on the weekends we spend a decent chunk of the mornings listening to records, sipping coffee, and flipping vinyl. We absolutely love the ritual of it. That's not so easy to do at the cabin where we have run into problems with wiring speakers. Recently the clouds parted, and the vinyl gods pointed us in the direction of Sonos wireless speakers to solve all our listening problems... READ MORE
