Tile Backsplash - What they Don't Tell you #1: They don't tell you how to raise all the electric switches

06-23-2012 03:23 PM by MoshupTrail | 10 comments »

So you’ve finished your back splash and it’s beautiful! But there’s still a problem. All your plugs and switches are now recessed by 3/8 to 1/2 inch. So you run down to the store and buy these stupid little spacers, right? WRONG! Don’t even think about it. A bag of these spacers cost’s $5-6 and might be good for 4 switches. You’ll need at least two bags for all those extra switches you’ve just installed. Also, the kind I tried were a little to...

Your Decking Material Options: Pros and Cons

05-04-2011 08:00 PM by Mike Blank, CGR CAPS | 2 comments »

We have been building wood, composite and solid PVC decks and screened porches here in Lancaster County, PA since 1999. With over 12 years experience I can tell you the decision most families struggle with is what kind of decking material to choose for their new deck? If initial cost were the only concern, the answer would always be simple: wood. Unfortunately, we must consider many important factors. Along with initial cost, the appearance you are looking for and long-term maintenance tim...

DIY Ideas #2: Creating a Vintage Interior Look

08-04-2015 11:26 AM by Katies_DIY_Blog | 6 comments »

I’m sure we can all have a good go at creating a modern interior with modern styles and trends. We can all buy a bunch of materials and tools and get to work on a brand new untouched space and finish with a masterpiece. However, what if you’re looking to create a more vintage look rather than a modern one? How can you create that antique look yourself? I did a bit of research online in an attempt to figure out for myself and for this blog just how can I create a vintage look for my interior o...

DIY Ideas #1: A few of my ideas of how to turn you bedroom from drab to fab

07-27-2015 10:36 AM by Katies_DIY_Blog | 29 comments »

If there’s one thing I hate it’s sleeping in a bedroom that’s full of clutter and clothes everywhere. I always try to clear up my bedroom as best I can but unfortunately my boyfriend doesn’t seem to share my sense of tidiness and it always ends up with clothes and what not spread about the room! When I do get a chance to clean and tidy the room though, there are a couple of ideas I have in mind on how to turn it from something that’s average into something beautiful. Of course there are...

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 | 193 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 ...

Bathroom Remodel #6: Practicing for the shower doors

01-03-2015 08:03 PM by Dan Lyke | 143 comments »

So with the expanded window, we needed to obscure some of the glass. I thought “Oh, let’s go to Michael’s, get some stencils and etching acid, and put some patterns on it”. Charlene heard that and thought “Let’s put pictures of my favorite childhood camping spot on all the available glass”. Including the $700 shower doors. So now we’re practicing. A lot. Started with the Harbor Freight “air eraser”, which is ...
