My family and I purchased our first home in 2019, and it didn’t take long to realize how much attention it truly needed. The house has been in our family since it was built in the 1950’s — and nothing had been renovated in at least 40-50 years. The basement was and still partially is — a time capsule to the late 60’s-early 70’s.

I’ve always loved learning new skills and diving into hobbies with 110% of my focus and energy. I grew up on Lego’s & K’nex, so how hard can it really be?

Thankfully, I never took wood shop in high school and had zero exposure to tools or any of the trades. Otherwise, I doubt this venture would have ever began. Ignorance can be bliss.
