My name is Beth and I’m a home-owner / DIY’er. Oh yeah, and I do IT project management to pay the bills, but that’s another story. I have no formal contractor or construction training, but I love building things with my hands and playing with power tools. I also am very intellectually curious. Between my desire to learn, my love of power tools & my passion for building things, I’m hoping i can turn my moderately neglected home into something that will stay standing another 100 years. This blog will track the progress I make while attempting to achieve that lofty goal.
