Hello Everyone!

About Me

My husband and I are retirees from the City of Mesa AZ fire department. We bought a "fixer" in Payson to escape the heat of the Phoenix valley. We remodeled our first home and built our second home from the ground up....yes from renting the heavy equipment to dig the basement to installing our own roofing. We've done it ALL. We've been "DIY'ers" for 40 years. This is our third home and we've remodeled our kitchen - a must for us as we are 5'10" and 6'4" and have to have 42" counter tops - we enclosed a 1 car garage adding a bay window to create a "sanctuary" for me. We are currently landscaping and building fences (2 acres). But I can't wait to start on the bathrooms and master bedroom. Our basement is only 6' so we call it our "tall crawl-space" and use for storage mostly.
My husband can not sit still and always has a "project" going. I help where I can but mostly I'm the "live tool belt".
I enjoy DIY to see new products and techniques.
