My journey to being a Maker, not just a consumer…

Almost 8 years ago, I moved into a very old house. And I started down a road of learning:

  • Do it yourself Carpentry – lots of it BIG and small.
  • Electricity
  • Plumbing
  • Home re-modeling basics
  • Clearing Land and Cutting Down Trees
  • Finishing a basement
  • running cables
  • Heat and AC issues
  • Porch repair and Deck repair and building
  • Re-enforcing stairs
  • What tools to buy and why and what tools not to buy
  • Climate controls tips and tricks

Prior to that I was an apartment dweller who relied on landlords and hired handy people for all that. I have learned much and now do repairs and carpentry, and when I hire people to do those things I can maximize my value for the price.

As for interior design issues and de-cluttering I knew the basics but took it to new levels with observations from how my Mom does things.
