Washroom Overhaul Part 1

Let me introduce you to my washroom- When I bought my house back in 2011, I knew that it was a flip and that I would probably encounter a few questionable repairs and reno’s.  Coming from a family that built houses and apartment buildings, I am not easily intimidated when it comes to building and […]

A Form of Meditation-Cleaning the Office and building a New Desk

A meditation session is due. I know I need to meditate-my way. Soon. As of today, I still haven’t written down my goals for this year although, in a nutshell I kind of know where I want to go-I just need to be more specific and writing them down makes them real. But, in the […]

The Start of a New Adventure

How it all started. Here a view from the Eastern Townships Appalachian Mountains from a client’s home from the days when I use to “beautify gardens” I’ve owned 6 homes in my life.  It’s not to brag.  It is what it is.  Every home, though, was meant to be long term.  I always treated each […]

Laundry Room Over Haul

It was an unorganized laundry room begging for a makeover.  User unfriendly for vertically challenged people. The poor layout made things hard to reach unless you were 6 feet tall (I’m 5’2).  There was also a lot of wasted space due to the cramming of everything against the back wall and because this first floor […]
