    Imagination

       Most of the time, if you can imagine what you want, you can remake it to do what you need.  As I've never had a lot of money, I'm used to reusing old items and/or using existing things for a different purpose.  Same goes with repair or fixing things.  For many, you can...

    Always Want To Do Something

    I grew up one of three kids with a single mother. She let the house go because she was too proud to ask for help. The water heater broke twice, once in winter! We always belonged to a church, and she should have asked for help more. After less than 20 years in the house, the roof...

    Painting A House

    People have funny ideas about how to go about painting a house, my daughter included. We get started, she is ready to slap paint.  I stop her, say no, we need to get all the caulking done first.  So, the first thing she does is paint the deck, no caulking right?  True, but, it...

    I Absoultely Love DIY

    The satisfaction that comes out of doing things by your own is tremendous. When my little daughter looks at me, she learns the things and also she sees happiness in my eyes once I repair or make something by my own. This brings her to think that this way is one way to have fun...

    I'm amidst a bathroom reconstruction.

    .. Actually, I'm at the backend of the project... What's left is grouting the tiles, putting up the plinth under the shower tray and finishing the door installation (bought brand new door and decided to rotate the opening (from LtR to RtL)). And the extras: led ***** beneath...

    Growing Up On A Farm

    DIY was the only way to go, if it broke while you were using it, you fixed it.  If it needed fixing and you noticed it, you fixed it.  I have gotten to the point in my hobby area, I have a full wood working shop, full metal working, welders, rock hobby, and jewelry...
