The BAY WINDOW I told ‘the man’ how big I wanted the window. He cut the hole and we covered it for the winter. We put insulation over the floor area and covered the areas near the open gable ends with plastic since the snow would blow inside somewhat. I was tired of babysitting the [...]

This video is so fun and right down my alley. Since the Hubbard can grow so big you can hardly lift it, this is the absolutely most PERFECT way to split it down to size. >>>    How to cut a Hubbard Squash *   The only problem I had was to find the right window. One without [...]

The laugh is on the Ray Ban scam. One of their spams came through on this site. They said  how totally wonderful a post was…and so very helpful (harhar).

THE CHIMNEY. This had to be planned from the beginning. Our chimney is high and large. That means a lot of weight that needs to be supported at the ground level. I wanted to have a wood stove downstairs as well as a wood cook stove upstairs so that meant it would need two separate flues [...]

THE ROOF! Hubby created what I believe is an original roof system for our house. You may have seen roofing framework being constructed on the ground and then lifted by a crane. Have you ever seen this?
