Mike and Joannie posing together in San Sebastian Spain 2022

Mike and I are pretty handy/creative people and are usually called in to help with any shelf building, painting, addition, renovation type projects with our friends.

Both of us grew up in the construction trade and we both have backgrounds working on construction projects. I’m a Registered Nurse who also studied Design (double major). Mike is a Fire Captain/Paramedic. You can probably guess how we met 🙂

We love to travel, and when we aren’t tearing stuff a part, we can be found on the road with our kids in our RV, “Cousin Ed” (that we also remodeled). Our favorite places to visit are National Parks and Monuments.

We started this website as a blog in 2013 to share the highs and lows of a second story addition. Now, it’s become a reference for other crazy diy’s. With a ton of easy to build projects and free plans for you to download – like these Keane Wenge Dupe Nightstands or this beautiful console table with Studio McGee vibes.

Mike and I love to share our experience and we really enjoy hearing from you. Join our community on Instagram and watch our projects unfold in our own home. Email or message us with any remodeling questions. Subscribe to our newsletter and blog so you can get notified when we add a post.

Hope to hear from you soon!
