    Project: Deer Fence

    Deer fence! What? Yes, we installed a 6.5 foot deer fence in May. It took us about 3 weeks from beginning to end (we worked about 4 full days, and then a couple of hours on odd evenings). Deer Fence Bryce had to brush cut more than 2000 feet of paths so we could get the fence in, and we gained a bit of land on the west side since the markers set back in 1970 were way, way off. Happy we got a land…

    Project: Fireplace Reno

    Fireplace reno! Back in 2015 we swapped out our never used wood burning fireplace for a gas one (that’s when we got a gas stove, too). What we didn’t do, however, was fully decide on how to finish the fireplace. That decision took over 4 years, yet here we are – fireplace reno time! Back when we were trying to decide we went back and forth so many times – stone to the mantel? Stone all the way up the wall? Dark stone, light stone?…

    Project: Big Ass Fan

    First, know that this fan is actually a brand of Big Ass Fans. No, I’m not cussing – it’s the real name, and I believe their logo is a donkey, aka, an ass. Okay, you can see the before and how little the fan is – I think it’s a standard ceiling fan, so about 4 or so feet. The new one is an i6 and it’s 84 inches, so 7 feet. So much bigger! We had to get scaffolding to install it – 15…

Today we’re having a super-duper tasty Easter brunch. Okay, let’s get started! Easter Brunch Breakfast Tacos Cornbread Fudgy Brownies First, you’re going to want to set your table.

    Project: New Shed

    New shed – this was a September 2019 project. The kind of project that spins off another. Remember the retaining wall we did? Well, we wanted a shed, too. Mainly to get all the lawn maintenance stuff out of the shop since we’re working on Bolers in there. So, let’s check out this 96 square foot, 12×8 shed! New Shed The slanted roof is one of our favourite parts – it’s 13 degrees. The floor is road crush, just like the rest of the driveway,…
