Bird Houses

I was coming home from work the other day and took a side street to avoid a traffic jam when I came across this house. Now I have been toying with making a birdhouse for a couple of weeks now. So naturally my interest was peaked when I saw this house. A little overdone if I do say so myself. And the picture only shows half the yard. For those readers with a GPS, you can visit it yourself at the following location; N 39 53.308' by W 075 10.410'

Nightmare Mansion

I just got back from Virginia Beach, Virginia this afternoon. While I was down there I came across Nightmare Mansion. What a cool looking building. I saw it on Wednesday night but i did not have a camera with me. So this morning I went out about 6:45 am and snapped a few pictures. Being the off season at the beaches the store was not open so I couldn't see what was inside. Hopefully I'll get back there soon and can check it out. The bellhop at my hotel said it looks even better in the summer, at night when it is all lite up. Check out a few additional pics below.

Bunny Easter Basket

Here is an easy project for you to make for children at Easter time. I developed a detail set of instructions in pdf format. I am a great fan of free things so I decided to provide the plans free to anyone who wants them. The only thing I ask in return is that you consider offering something free. Let me know and if I like it I will post it on this site. I can't figure out how I can post a file other that a picture on this blog so I convinced a friend to host the file on his site by offering him free advertisement. Click here to view the plans. Please remember to visit his site at

Tray Ceiling

Well I am finishing up installing a Tray ceiling in my Dinning room. Not a very hard job. I basically frames out a couple of boxes on the ceiling using 2" x 6"s, Covered and covered them with drywall. After I finished painting and installing Hardwood floors, My wife decided that we needed a way to add some definition to the wall leading into the hall way. Check out more Photos of the installation on my Flickr page.
