A good fence is one of the best ways to keep your home and your property safe. It can discourage would-be thieves and intruders from getting close to your home, to either break in or to check inside to see if anything is worth stealing. It can also keep your pets inside and protect children from getting near a pool unattended. One drawback to many fencing options is that they can be a bit drab and impersonal, so consider a few quick tips for dressing up the fence around your property.
Do you have a room in your house that just never reaches a comfortable temperature? That's probably a frustrating experience, especially if it's a room you use frequently, like the kitchen, living room, or master bedroom. Many people assume that these problem rooms just aren't getting enough air from the air conditioner or furnace. While that may be true, there could be other causes. There could be a draft or leak in the room.
My name is Sara Jenkins and I am the daughter of a plumber. As a young girl, I was not very impressed by what my father did for a living, but I loved spending time with him so I was thrilled each time he asked me to help with a repair around the house. What I didn't realize at the time was that my father was teaching me skills that would prove incredibly useful in my adult life. Today, thanks to him, I have completed a long list of plumbing jobs in my own home without the need to hire a contractor. This blog is my way of saying thank you to him by sharing all of the things that he has taught me about home repairs and construction.
