Choosing a Fence Builder

Great advice on how to find professionals to fence your yard.

fabiangonzalezsite

When buying/selling or just investing back into your property, the fence is normally on the bottom of the list, but it is always important to ensure that you don’t just go with the cheapest price, even when it is somethig simple like a wooden fence.

Lines, structure even material is important, as you can see from the picture above a perfectly string lined fence even when as simple as a timber fence can look great, one of the features that most fence builders will ignore is the base, the base is key to the presentation of the fence, in this pictue it may be easily ignored, but this builder has ensured that any gaps are taken care of, perfectly cut sleepers along the base tidies it all up.

IKEA Hack for gas meter using Billy bookcase

Check out this tip for hiding your gas meter.

What you didn't know

Ikea Hackit

PROBLEM: Hide an ugly wall gas meter standingin our previously converted garage/now sitting room

SOLUTION: IKEA hack solution using a BILLY bookcase with 2 kitchen cupboard doors attached to the bookcase.

During our renovations we were quoted about £3500 to move the gas meter to a cupboardon the other side of the wall. Since this would have been a rather costly exercise we decided to think of solutions on how to make the gas meter a less unsightly feature in thesitting room. We came up with manydifferent floating wall cabinet ideas that we even tried out in the interior design software to get an idea of how it would look. (If you missed my post on the interior design software we used for our kitchen renovations then check it out here.) The other concern though was interfering with possible electrical cables located in the wall from drilling.

Bathroom Beautification!

Project Ugly House

Though I took a 10 month blog break, our house updates have been going nonstop! We have done so much to this place, but one of the biggest projects since my last post has been the remodel of our guest bathroom and master vanity area. Fortunately and unfortunately, the bathrooms were not thatbad when we bought this place. Fortunately, because we didn’t have it in the budget to remodel them right away, and unfortunately because they were okay enough to live with, but ugly enough to make me sad every time I went into one of them.

Since we spend the most time in the guest bathroom bathing kids, we decided to tear into that one first. Before we proceed, let me remind you how semi-ugly the bathroom was.


I know, it’s not thatbad, but the pictures hide the really bad parts. The “white” shower tile and tub…

First Night

This DIY-er realized that sometimes, when it comes to bigger projects in home renovation, hiring professional workers is the way to go!

Stitchez DIY

So I know it’s been months since I’ve [seemingly] made any progress, or done anything at all with the new place and the move as a whole. Admittedly, things did get delayed, but I have been progressing all winter, spring and now summer.

Most of it was massive detox, destruct, destash, destroy and depart.

I didn’t think most of it was very interesting, not an exciting story to share, but I did “DIY”

Now for the floors, I did end up redoing them, Professionally. It was the right thing to do, and now was the the only time it could have been done. and WOW what a difference eh??

And lastly now, I finally spent my first night in my new room. Remember it started out a pale, sage color with a shabby bed and decor? Here’s a messy, slept in bed in “Bedroom #1”
