"A long project. Had to remove half of the deck so we could get the excavator underneath to fix the outside basement stairs, which were caving in. It was just the two of us. Took us a week and half. Next time we will hire out. It will help save a relationship."

"Tried to install a new bathroom fan. After 30 minutes trying to get it out from below, I mentioned getting it out through the attic. Two hours and lots of insulation later, we got it done. Two hours even later we got it cleaned up, aaaand then we flipped the switch. Negative."

"I would like to tell you about my weekend project. First a little background: My wife and I have wanted shutters in our bathroom window but they can be really pricy (around $500). I went to Habitat Restore and found wooden shutters with moveable louvers for $40.00. I looked at them and knew they needed to be downsized to fit our window, thought about the challenge, and thought what would Norm Abrams do if he was in my shoes. I took on the challenge to break them all down and resize them to fit our window. As you can see in the photos I have two constructed and the third one on its way. I have one more panel to make after that and then trim out the window. The window is a challenge in it's self because they are awning windows and the cranks can get in the way, but I have that covered. I'll share the final results when they're done."
