Built in progress, day 2:

I added a new tutorial tab at the top where I’m going to put our more basic how-to’s.  Creating the new fireplace/built-in/tv unit, is an accumulation of a many basic skills we’ve picked up along the way, so it seems like a good time to take photos and get some instructions up.  

Our home has been going full throttle, new kitchen, bathrooms, and advanced carpentry.  At this point in our renovation process, we are more or less at an advanced level, but we definitely didn’t start there.  We gained our skills by watching YouTube videos, reading other blogs, and a whole lot of trial and error.

So, if you’ve never picked up a paint-brush, don’t be afraid!  Yes, we have made errors and gotten in over our heads.  After saying “F-this, call a plumber!” at 1 a.m. on more than one occasion, though,  we are still happily married.

I’m not proclaiming any of these tutorials are the best way or even the right way to do anything, so if you have any suggestions for improvement, I’m all ears!  The good thing about starting a blog three years in, is that we’ve done and redone enough projects to tell people where we went wrong and what products saved us time.  So, if you’re new to all this stuff, good luck, and hopefully these tutorials can be of help!
