Day 27 –

The fireplace makeover I did at our house. When we moved in it was a brick with wood mantle that was at a strange height. It had a real grandma feel to it.

I ended up pulling the mantle and top four levels of brick. Then covered it all in tile. I think it is much more our style. A little bit of a Tim Burton feel. Much better than a grandma feel.

Playhouse for my boys

I built this playhouse in the backyard when we moved into this house. We’d made one in our previous house and when we moved our oldest son was sure to miss playing in it. I designed this with simplicity in mind, some place for them to have friends over, store toys, and use their imaginations in! Its a square “house” design with a wood porch for hanging out on. My oldest son enjoyed pitching in and helping me build it too. We’ve come to realize that maybe they’d like a balcony – they use the tree behind to climb up on the roof to enjoy the view!

Chop Block Island

I made this chop block / butcher’s block table for my wife to use as an island in our kitchen. Its custom made for her height. We keep a food grade mineral oil on the top to keep it moist and dark for years to come.
