60 Day's of Learning

This weekend marked 60 days into our remodel of the Little House. In that time my son's and I have had some good times with a few lessons along the way. So here are some of the highlights.

Paint - Humidity does matter even when using a quality primer.

Rushing or trying to do things in a hurry usually leads to wasted time and money.

It's time to take a break when aggravation instead of satisfaction becomes the main focus.

There are different shades of white and when buying fixtures for your shower and tub you need to pay attention and make sure you get the right finish.

Having the right tool can make the difference in making it a 5 minute job vs an hour or more.

When cleaning the stove -- be sure to unplug or flip off the breaker for the stove.

Don't be afraid to throw in the DIY towel and bring in a pro when needed.

Trim is expensive.

Everything takes longer to do then you think it will.
