Well I was working on building the deck and I kept saying. Take some pictures. But, it didn’t get done. These pictures are from before putting on the deck surface. The deck is placed just outside a small deck that goes between the screened porch and the Solarium. We have a spa in the Solarium room. The deck is basically 16’ X 16’. It’s 14 feet to the beginning of the curved edge. One end is tapered to match the sidewalk that goes around the house. I’...

Today people are looking for ways to improve their homes for better living and more enjoyment. Investing a little time and money will go a long way to transform your home into the pride of the neighborhood. Curb Appeal – Let’s begin outside. Mow the grass, pull the weeds, edge the lawns and give the bedding areas the attention and maintenance they deserve. Liven up the planting areas with perennials for substance, and then go for color with annuals. Select a color scheme such as reds...
When I bought my snow blower, I only wanted one wide enough to fit through the side door on my garage, so I settled for a 26” wide unit. When looking across various models, I noticed that several premium (and larger) models had heated hand grips. After two winters with my snow blower, I thought it would be time to try to upgrade my basic rubber hand grips to heated one. I made a couple of videos on it, the first one shown how I did it for my MTD manufactured Troy-Bilt, and a second one...

hard wiring a light to an outlet #1: 1. Research for an electrical project I'd like to attempt - is it possible?
Got a bit of flak for posting over in LJ so I thought my better bet may be here :) I wanted to document this process in case well – in case I ever need to refer back to it or maybe someone has the same dilemma’s I do about this process? My workshop is in half of my two car garage and I want to install a four bulb florescent fixture to get as much light as possible since with winter I will be working with the garage door closed :) I was able to pick up a commercial/residential...
Shredded rubber tires are a valuable product with a variety of uses for landscaping and creating safe surfaces for playgrounds and equestrian arenas. Rubber chips provide high energy absorbency, very low compaction over time and excellent stability. Traditional mulching products compact and degrade, sometimes requiring annual application. By comparison, wood chips as fill for a playground must have an extra 25% of depth added to allow for compaction. Recycled rubber does not compact and...
Aside from a piece of furniture to strip, you’re going to need some tools. A little introduction here. Wire cutters – I didn’t actually use those pliers. I found a very old, dull and loose pair of wire cuters. You are going to pull thousands of staples, dull (not notched) wire cutters can grab staples without cutting the in half. Don’t bring out your best! Rubber mallet – That sucker is as heavy as a carpentry hammer. Unless you are used to chiseling...
My soon to be father-in-law mentioned to me that his door frame was rotting. He asked me if I thought it was fixable or if he should just go and buy a new door. I told him that it’s definitely fixable and saved him the cost of the new door! All it cost was the $18 for the epoxy putty. Here is a video of how I did it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GnHya_2HPGo <iframe src=”http://www.youtube.com/embed/GnHya_2HPGo” height=”480” width=”640̶...
