    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…

    Project: Plants 2.0

    Plants 2.0. That’s right – here’s a little update on our plant project blog post from last October. I’ll share some of the plants from last year and how they’re doing now and also share a couple of new plants that are loving life on the acreage. Plants This fire stick guy loved his greenhouse life with his red tips and all. Well, now, he loves the south facing windows and all the light the sun has to offer. Oh, and he loves it so…

    Project: My Ole Lady the Boler After

    It’s done – and sold, yet the work we did on My Ole Lady the Boler is beautiful. Check it out – bright red accents with a light and bright interior. So fun. Oh, and if you haven’t seen the before, you should check that out first; it’s cool to see how much this lady has transformed. My Ole Lady the Boler After We took this shabby paint job, sandpaper, and a lot of time and turned it into a fun little camper. She’s ready…

    Project: Halloween Treats

    Halloween treats – yes, treat bags for the trick-or-treaters tonight. Halloween Treats Each year I put together about a dozen treat bags for the children who trek out to our house in the country. I don’t know why, yet I feel like since there aren’t that many houses around we should give bigger treats. Does that even make sense? So, this year I’ve got popcorn, full sized chocolate bars, halloween ring pops, fizz candy, and some other items, too. I also picked up these spooky…

    Project: Minnie the Boler Before

    This is Minnie the Boler – she’s a 1971 (although we initially thought 1979) Canadian made fiberglass trailer. We called her Minnie because we ended up picking a Mango Sorbet colour to paint her and one of our favourite little places to grab take-away is called Mini Mango. As such, meet Minnie the Boler. Minnie the Boler Before Rough shape? Yes. We picked her up a few hours from home and although I say she’s in rough shape, she really isn’t. The body was in…
