The back door is hung! It's not finished, as we lost power for a few days due to a major wind storm, but I did everything I could without going old-school and pulling out hand tools. This was an unfinished knotty alder wood door we purchased from the Habitat for Humanity ReStore. I love how it turned out!

I got our generator up and running for the first time after 48 hrs of no power. It wasn't cold enough during the day to put our food out to stay cold, so we had to plug in the fridge and deep freezer.

I also split more wood to keep the house warm with the help of my best little buddy. (He's another reason why work doesn't move as fast as I'd like around the house, but he keeps me entertained!)

The miller moths are very bad where I currently live. So, I threw together a moth catcher for our newest neighbors as a housewarming gift. Just add some water and a little dish soap, and it does the trick!

It feels good to get back to some work on the garage! I've been working on the door jamb for the back door, and I had help getting the final trim around the back windows.

It was a beautiful, sunny, yet chilly 34 degree mountain day. Perfect for splitting some wood!

Rains every day (lightning plus a metal structure do not mix well) plus a 3 year old running around make it difficult to get much done. But it's slowly coming together!

I just wanted to share this quick DIY project to help protect your cabinets from water damage under your sinks. Just get some peel and stick vinyl tiles, cut to size, and stick 'em in. Easy!
