22 – Drilling towards success

read

On Tuesday night after dinner, my son suggested we watch Lord of The Rings / The Fellowship of the Ring together. I’ll never turn down a date with my son!  And I certainly didn’t think I’d be posting tonight because of it. That is one, long, intense, but awesome movie! And I saved money, because I won’t […]

read

I’ve always wanted to visit New York. So when I most recently spent some time in Toronto, it was incredibly tempting to hop on a plane after Blogpodium and fly on over there. Know what? New York IS on my bucket list, bar none. But Toronto offered me all the NYC perks without the added […]

Drywall repair for junkers… hello reclaimed wood

When I brought this curb side reclaimed wood storage rack into the workshop, did you notice the holes in the wall? During my renovation, there was major wiring done to the house.
