We've had quite a few new visitors on our blog today by way of the Apartment Therapy Homies page. As a result, we want to officially welcome all of our new guests to the site. We are Wendy & Alex, two long time DIYers who happen to have a love of old homes, an appreciation for a job done right, and some crazy ideas of what we can handle ourselves.

If this is your first time on the site, it might be good to start on the Our Home page to get an idea of where we live and our house, or perhaps the Projects page to see some of the things we've accomplished and lived to tell about.

We post every day Monday through Friday. That can be a little overwhelming to search through, so we created this Calendar page that lists each post by day. Click on any day with a title to see a brief description of the corresponding post. 

Lately we've been writing about the budget upgrades and eventual complete disaster that was our kitchen, as well as the work we just completed on our vestibule project.  

And we also have our recurring themes like: Toolbox Tuesday, where we talk about must have tools that we use in our renovations; Open Housing, where we go through area historic open houses and then assess how likely we would be to trade our house for it outright; and, occasional items like the Old Town Llamas...I think you'll just have to click on that one.

We have a lot of fun on our blog, and we hope you will too. We're very excited to be on the DIY list in the Homies among so many other awesome blogs, and we hope you'll have a look around and enjoy your visit. And if you really like what you see, and you want to see a whole lot more fresh DIY ideas and items from our life, be sure to vote for us as a Best DIY Blog on the Apartment Therapy site. Have a good night and stop back tomorrow for some fresh DIY content.
