Hi everyone, my name is Jon – I’m a U.S. Marine Corps veteran, mechanical engineer, and all around home improvement enthusiast – as well as…. your homie! My wife and I are always thinking of ways to make our home more comfortable, efficient, and fun to be in .

I started this blog as a way to share some of my experiences throughout the years with others – so hopefully they don’t make the same mistakes as I did! As well as hopefully inspire others to make the most of their homes.

I get tired of reading cookie-cutter home improvement articles that ignore the fact that most of us cannot hire a contractor to do a $400k remodel – my house isn’t even worth that much! I really strive to provide down to earth, feasible, realistic home improvement and maintenance advice that applies to everyone.

If you’ve gotten this far, thanks for visiting, reading, and I hope you find something here that can help you. Also, please leave some feedback – this is no fun talking to myself!
