Over the last few months we recapped the various phases of our Master Bedroom project. From start to finish the whole project took over a year, required us to sleep in the guest bedroom, inconvenienced us tremendously, challenged us completely, and caused several nights of head scratching to figure out how to...

A few days ago a friend and I were discussing various tools (a riveting conversation, I assure you), and he asked me a seemingly simple question. "Just how many powered saws do you own?" I started to think about it and count it up in my head and I was pretty...

If you'll remember back a few weeks ago we were planning to install a leak detection system in our home. Not only would this system detect the presence of water in unexpected areas, but it will also remotely trigger the main water shutoff valve to turn off if it detects...

With St. Patrick's Day just a few days away, I'm turning my attention to a healthy and festive way to celebrate. In a house where 50% of the adults are vegetarian, and the other 50% is trying to lose weight, the traditional corned beef and cabbage and endless pints of Guinness just won't cut it.
