About Us


I know there's good apples in here somewhere..


Barry: The muscle and the knowledge. In the construction trades with over 20 years of experience in building homes, restaurants, finish carpentry and everything in-between. Your jack of all trades!

He likes long walks on the beach and curling up with a good book…oh wait wrong profile.






Martha Stewart would be proud!


Joe: The painter, the baker and the candlestick maker…oops I mean the one whose most likely making all the blog posts. Treads more on the artistic and humorous side of life. Several years of experience with tile work, but only because he was suckered into believing it was fun to do, and Barry never let’s him play with the big fun tools :).  Now a full-time glass bead artist, glass blower, glass fuser, and whatever else sounds fun.

Actually enjoys painting as in painting house walls, strange right? Not afraid to get dirty but hates dirty hands!!! Like fingernails on a chalkboard :shivers:

    Hi Joe! Thanks for visiting my blog. Wow, have you guys got your work cut out for you (I thought ours was bad!). :) Congratulations though, I’m sure it will be well worth the effort–we love our bungalow! I look forward to reading about your progress (once you close on the house!). LOVE your blog name too! Sorry for all the exclamations but they seem warranted!!

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly… I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue… I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.
