My husband and I wanted to add an addition to our home for years before we finally decided to act on the idea. However, we then realized that we desperately needed to update our kitchen, as well. Before we started the remodeling process, we prepared for what we expected: stress. We made sure we cleared our calendars and didn't have any other major commitments during the remodeling process. However, once we began planning the renovations, we quickly learned that we were actually having a lot of fun! The renovation process also went very smoothly and, now that the process is over, we both joke around that it feels "too quiet" in hear without the company of the contractors. I enjoyed t all so much I decided to start a blog to share my remodeling tips to help others who will soon be taking the plunge!

When one of these most-trusted appliances breaks down, and you need replacement parts, you need to know how to get them on a budget.

A wooden privacy fence around your pool provides you with a relaxing grotto in which to lie back on a pool raft and enjoy the sun. However, not all types of wood are suitable for building a fence around a pool—after all, it will be exposed to significant amounts of moisture, which can allow fungus to begin growing or cause the planks on the fence to war.

When you install a new well on your property, it's a given that you will need a submersible well pump if you want to deliver the water to your home.
