I was born on the eastern shore of Maryland where my father was a poultry farmer. I have fond memories of bottle-feeding calves, driving a John Deere tractor, playing outside, weeding the flower bed, cutting asparagus, and my mother and grandmother canning tomatoes, green beans, or whatever was in season.
It took us a few months but we have finally finished our basement makeover project. We are thrilled with the result! Let us know what you think by commenting at the end of this post.
I have a love-hate relationship with painting. I hate that the house is in disarray (moving everything out of the room into other rooms) and I don’t exactly love to paint . . . but I LOVE the result! I am never disappointed with how clean and crisp the room looks when we are finished.

Neal and I have installed a lot of crowning moulding over the years. We have made many mistakes and wasted a lot of crown molding trying to get the “cuts” right. However, we have perfected (well maybe not perfect, but better ?) our technique and want to pass on what we have learned to you.
