What does a Garden Gnome do when she is not gardening, in the kitchen or doing genealogy? Well the answer might just surprise you so read the entries to find out more. This blog focuses on everything we do to make our house a home. There will be a strong emphasis on home energy efficiency and do-it-yourself (DIY) projects. At the same time there will also be crafts, knitting and crocheting projects along with any other little tips we do to create that down to earth, I want to be here home. Please enjoy your visit :)

Starting 2015 Projects

It's a brand new year!  It promises to be an exciting year as I have a lot of household projects planned.  I also have a few projects from last year to share as well.  We have been in our home now for almost four years and despite all of the work we have done there is a lot more that we want to do to make this house our home.  We started our large two level deck last year so there are several smaller projects to do to get the backyard to completion.  We installed crown moulding in the great room and entry and painted the front door which has led to a long list of additional projects indoors including painting, and replacing baseboard and doors.  I also have plans to turn an unused room into a home gym starting this month.  That project should be a lot of fun!  I'm picking up another piece of exercise equipment tomorrow so once the room is cleaned out and painted, it will come together quickly.   I'm looking forward to sharing some of my ideas and completed projects with you this year!
