A few weeks ago in order to participate in the Summer Pinterest Challenge, we scraped together a few items we had laying around the basement to create a project for almost no cost and little effort. For our modest investment of a little time (most of it spent watching paint...

I hope you've all enjoyed the 2012 edition of Week of Alex. It's been a crazy hectic week while Wendy's been away, and I'm very happy she's back in town. Aside from being the person I rely on to help keep things running smoothly, I notice how much more silent...

You know how fire extinguisher cases often have the phase "In case of emergency, break glass!" Before Wendy left for her business trip, she wrote today's blog post for an "In case of emergency" situation.  She said "do you want me to write a post for this week?" To which...

I don't think Week of Alex II could possibly be considered complete without the inclusion of a particularly manly/geeky how to post, don't you agree? Well, I've surely got one for you. When we talk to friends and neighbors about our house, or even to people we've just met that are...

To commemorate Week of Alex II, I've got a really cool tool for you on this week's Toolbox Tuesday!  Last week I covered my simple and standard method for shaving down drywall using a rasp. Tools like those are basic necessities and don't add much complexity to the project but serve...

It takes two to make things go right...It takes two to make it outtta sight. When MC Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock coined these ridiculously insightful lyrics back in 1988, in addition to partying, wanting to rock right now, and wanting to get down (even if you're not internationally known),...

The number of houses on the market in and around Old Town has seemingly skyrocketed lately. It feels like every time we check the latest listings we are excitedly saying to each other, "hey, look at which house is on the market!" To which the other person usually responds, "oh,...

Millions of peaches, peaches for me. Millions of peaches, peaches for free.  Oh, sorry. I got carried away singing one of my favorite Presidents of the United States of America songs because I'm thinking about peaches. It's that time of year when these lush and juicy fruits are at their best....

Well, it's official, I think I can finally claim insulation victory! This is a good feeling...no, a great feeling, and I'm so happy to tell you about this wonderful, though decidedly not very sexy, project. Wait a second, who said insulation is not sexy? Definitely not this guy, that's who. When anyone...

In the years I've been doing various forms of home improvement, I've come to know and love the tools I depend on. From drills to saws, the standard lot of tools are usually good enough to get the job done and are the items I rely on to help out...

For those that don't know, the Washington, DC metro region is nestled into a pocket of our country that offers a huge variety of places to explore. A short drive east takes you to the ocean, while a trip up north to the big cities of the northeastern corridor. Heading west...

Now that we've more or less recapped all of the nitty gritty details surrounding our home office renovation, we're left with the fun stuff to show off -- the glorious before and after details. Ok, maybe I'm getting a little ahead of myself, and perhaps we aren't actually "done" with...

When we see friends or coworkers and they say "what have you been up to lately?," our response is almost always the same. "We've been busy...working on the house, working on our blog, working long hours for our day jobs." To me, it's funny how this "our blog" piece was...

Over the last couple of weeks we've been recapping our efforts on turning an old and very outdated bathroom into our small but functional home office. After a significant amount of work to make the space a room, and then a bit of extensive work to turn our hacked apart...
