Authors: Northland StoriesIn anticipation of an awesome Saturday filled with heavy sheets of drywall and deep pockets filled with cash ... er, drywall screws .. I called the local rental store and reserved a drywall lift. It will take a little over 6 sheets of drywall to cover the ceiling. I'm going to be happy when it's all done because then I...

Authors: Northland StoriesI've been away from blogging for quite some time to pursue my art interests, but now that I've found my little niche in the art world, I would like to give blogging another shot. I'm not one of those 'new blog post every day at 2pm types' .. weekly updates are more realistic. Nevertheless, I thought I'd post a pic of the...

Authors: Northland StoriesI wish I had some good things to report about the progress I'm making with the fireplace, but, alas, I don't at the moment. I should post a few pics here soon about the progress we are making with the gardens. We transplanted a few perennials and purchased some others to get a good garden layout going. We have a small...

We are busy settling in and unpacking, a process that takes days and weeks. I've been sidelined by finding a used washer and dryer and hooking them up. Laundry is kind of important. But on a more interesting and historical note, I decided I just had to know what was behind the shiny gold fireplace doors and...

I'll have my own photos soon enough (once I figure out which box the camera is in lol). But for now, we are settling in, getting used to life here. The home has a foyer entry...

Authors: Northland StoriesMy kitchen sink faucet whistles when I use it. I figure it's just telling me how happy it is to be directing water for me. But I find it a little annoying.

Authors: Northland StorieseHow has a nice article on their website titled Projects and Ideas for Painting Old Windows that is full of fun ideas for using old windows in creative ways. I like the painted flower box idea they have. I happen to have quite a few old windows laying around that I've been trying to come up with a use for. I have a nice...

Authors: Northland StoriesAfter two totally taxing days we are officially moved in! The sun was shining on a nice 64 degree morning as we awoke and wandered through a maze of boxes. I'd post some pics of our new house but my camera is safely stashed in a box just waiting to be discovered. Lots to do, lots of ideas, lots of fast food too! Can't...
