As a graphic designer by day, the last thing I want to do when I get home is look at a computer. But I find more joy in making things, anything, than sitting in front of a tv. So over the years I’ve taken up any hobby that requires assembling materials, whether by thread, lead, mixing or fixing.

With the purchase of our first home, I finally have a work space large enough to really dive into all the projects in mind. The house itself is an additional project. A twin built in 1927 with brick facade, plaster walls, some knob and tube electrical, peeling paint, pink bathroom… it has it’s charms. Fortunately, there have been updates made, such as a finished attic and basement, as well as a new deck, so it’s not entirely overwhelming.

I hope this site helps encourage anyone feeling intimidated by projects to jump in. Or if lack of confidence is not the issue, then learn from my research, successes and mistakes.
