Water leaks! They are the worst and have caused the most damage and work at both of our houses. I've had subtle leaks that weren't detected for a long time to the obvious, like the time I came home and water was pouring out of my garage!
The latest leak was one of the subtle ones. I just happened upon it because I was cleaning around the wood storage area and noticed a dark spot that should not have been there!
After clearing out the area, I realized the water was coming under the outside wall into the garage and potentially into my closet on the other side of the garage wall.
The culprit was the air conditioning condensation drain pipe that was positioned too close to the wall. As it's been very hot, the a/c has been running constantly meaning there has been a lot of water draining. Unfortunately, the water was running down the outside wall into the garage!
We needed to fix the problem ASAP!
Part of the plan when installing the elevated toy train train was a way to reach the train to turn it on. Although the LEGO train operates via a phone app, it has to be manually turned on, hence the need for a ladder to reach it!
On Steph's list of "making childhood dreams come true" was a rolling library ladder. She decided that this type of ladder would be perfect for reaching the train.
Here's how it all came together and with it, how she got to have her Belle, Beauty and the Beast, moment!
I think for a lot of people, especially home decor experts, ceiling fans are one of those love/hate things! They are super functional, but not all that attractive. This enclosed blade fan solves that "not attractive" problem while still providing plenty of function.
Between our two homes, we now have three of these fans with more to be installed in the future! Read along as Steph shares how she installed this fan.
Steph is making her LEGO childhood dreams come true one project at a time! First it was to establish a LEGO room in her house, followed by the ultimate Wall Control storage wall, and now--an elevated train track!
Did anyone see that one coming? I surely didn't know she had always coveted rooms with elevated train tracks since watching the movie Casper back in the 90s.
Since it is way too hot to work on anything outside, this was the perfect summer project. Follow along as we show you the build from beginning to caboose!
The single reason we purchased this DIY trailer from Harbor Freight was it's ability to fold for compact storage.
Finally, in this last video Steph shares how to fold and store it. It's not just simply folding it in half and standing it upright, there's a few steps to perform before you can do that.
