Pull-Out Dish Drying Rack

By Josh

Everyone here at our house HATES using a dishwasher! Well…. I do, anyway, and that pretty much means the same thing. lol I think they’re only used because they free your time up (which is awesome, but eh), but cost wise and cleanliness, they’re virtually the same. Anyway, our dishwasher went out and I didn’t want to just stick another one in, so instead I replaced it with some pull out drying racks that still used the original racks from the former dishwasher. It’s not for everyone, but it’s still a great alternative while still making full use of the space.

Raised Garden Beds

By Josh

Hey there! So today I thought I’d share how I made our garden beds. I don’t have a pic to go along with every step, unfortunately, but it’s a pretty straight-forward set-up. And I think it came out pretty good. Most of it was already owned or I found it for free. I’m still planning to add another layer to make it taller/ less of a strain on our backs as well as add a removable hoop greenhouse over the top of it. Big ideas, but we’ll see how it goes! Still works out just great as it is!

Re-Finishing my Counter-Top

By Josh

The kitchen island in this house is so very under-rated at times. I literally use it everyday as a prep surface for meals and also as a table for any projects I have that need a smaller work surface. This counter-top in particular is actually quite unique in that it was made using the original 100+ year old kitchen floor boards from the full kitchen remodel I did in here a few years ago. Now, the counter-top itself doesn’t look too bad in the photos, but really, it has it’s shares of blemishes. A few extra dings and nicks in it from the last 6 months. All to be expected, of course, but it’s still that time of year again when it needs re-finished to help keep it protected and looking good for years to come.

Skateboard Tree Swing

By Josh

Beautiful day out, today. Sun is out, no wind, up into the 60’s for a change. Hhhhhhhhh Such a nice day, Bruiser and I decided to walk around out back for a lil while. As we were exploring the wilderness (our fenced in back-yard), we noticed the standing tree-swing from last year was still out of commission. So, we decided that that would be our project for the day.

HVAC Filters

By Josh

It’s that time again! To change out your HVAC filters, of course! What else could I have possibly been talking about?? lol But yea, go check your  filter if you haven’t in a while. It’s something that doesn’t take a whole lot of effort, but will keep the air you breathe inside your home cleaner and keep those furnaces and AC’s running a lil longer.
