DIY that adds Value to your Property #2: DIY in the Kitchen to add a touch of Value

04-24-2015 10:56 AM by Katies_DIY_Blog | 30 comments »

In the second part of this blog, instead of just thinking about the house as whole, I thought I’d focus more on just the kitchen in which adding a touch of DIY could increase the value of your home. Using a fair bit of my real estate experience, my slow but steady gaining of DIY experience/knowledge and an article I found online here at TheMoveChannel, I thought I’d write this short piece to carry on with the series! Now no one is expecting you to have a PHD in electronics here and create ...

Am I Really going to do that to my fireplace!? #1: Some Materials gathered and I'm dying to start!

08-11-2012 03:58 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 28 comments »

Once again, I have totally lost my mind. Demo is not done. I haven’t built a scaffold. I don’t have the fireplace stone veener. I haven’t bought my wood floor for the living room. The hallway is not complete. There are a bazillion reasons why I shouldn’t start and yet….. I’ve got to take a few breaths and delay for a while while I think about execution and the layout of what I’m thinking. The more days I can do that, the better off I will be. If I ...

Watchlist Is Here! As Well As Related Pulse Upgrade

02-17-2009 11:21 AM by mbulla | 26 comments »

Many of you know the new watchlist feature from our sister website LumberJocks.com and many of you like it there. So I decided to add it here on HR as well. In summary, I’ve added the Watchlist feature that allows you to be notified – on the Pulse page or also by the emails – about new comments posted… not only on your own posts but on any posts that you add to your personal Watchlist. So how this works you ask. I tried to keep things as simple and streamlined as possible. Following poi...

Rewiring #3: Finished and Signed Off!

11-20-2014 12:35 AM by Dan Lyke | 24 comments »

Got the final inspection today! Woot! Not a whole lot to add to the previous update, but got the final inspection on the electrical today. Finally. And having sufficient sockets is amazing. The power strip quotient in the house has gone way way down. New LED lights in various places, with dimmers that work for them. It’s all pretty darned amazing. Lessons: Really, once we got the procedure down, running new sockets was pretty easy. A long extension on a hex drive augur bit...

DIY that adds Value to your Property #1: DIY adds more value you think

04-22-2015 06:20 PM by Katies_DIY_Blog | 21 comments »

I’m relatively new to this whole blogging thing so please bear with me if this article isn’t quite up to Shakespearean standard just yet! This is my first blog post so I thought I’d make it about something that’s been interesting me as of late. Firstly, my main job is a real estate agent. So I guess you can say my main job is slightly boring! However, the last 3-4 years of so I’ve actually started taking up small DIY jobs in and around the house. My boyfriend has never been very good with thi...

My Favorite Glue Scraper

03-11-2013 08:37 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 21 comments »

Hey everybody! I have been very busy between working on my client’s projects, squeezing in a project for another contractor, and rebuilding my website. As if that wasn’t enough, I decided to shoot a video to share with you what my favorite tool is for scraping off dried or semi-dried glue as I worked on one of those projects. I am really excited to bring another video to the woodworking and DIY community, so I hope you enjoy and find it helpful. Your friend in the shop, Todd A....
