    Terrazzo Refinishing

    Word on the street is that terrazzo is making a come back and is being uncovered from years of hiding under berber carpeting.

  • The Backyard Shed: Update

    Rehanging Vintage Windows

    We are this close to calling the shed complete. A week after we first started framing the shed, I found out I was pregnant.
