Deuce Cities Henhouse

Early on in my bathroom remodel I realized that I wouldn't be able to include a niche for the shower as I had hoped. Two of the three walls that surround the bath and shower are exterior walls, and because it gets so cold in NW Wisco (aka Wisconsin) in the winter months it would have caused problems to inset a niche between any of the studs on the exterior wall. The third wall contained the plumbing for our shower, and I didn't want to have to open up the wall to access it or deal with the headache that would be rerouting the plumbing just so that we could have a spot to put our shampoo. Since this is our cabin bath, and because we live like wild woods people when we are here - we don't have huge need for a lot of bath time accoutrements in this space. All we really need is stuff to wash our hair from time to time. READ MORE

Make a USB Charging Hub

Hey budz! I’ve been busy reorganizing the DCHH headquarters (aka as my sunroom office). I’m obsessed with cord coralling and maintenance because it can have such a big impact on a space.

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

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 have an easy solution I’d like to share with ya. READ MORE
