We are a family of 5 and and live in Northern Virginia. We (I) like to do projects around the house, inside and outside. My loving supportive wife is so great about letting me “get away” and work on my projects. I have a list a mile long but usually base my current project on time and budget. When my wife and I got married, I did not own a single tool. Over the years I have added to my collection and my skill level has risen. My best advice is to just do it. If something does not work, rip it up and start again. Life is a learning process. I have been asked by friends and family how I have done certain projects so I decided to blog about them. I have done many projects already that I hope to post on this site soon.
