  • Throwing In The Towel (or Paintbrush)

    Considering that the mums on our back porch have died off after a series of frosts and we’ve had our first few snow storms, we’ve officially thrown in the towel paintbrush on exterior house painting.  Actually, we called it quits late September when the temps dipped too low for painting. We’re a little disappointed in […]

  • I Wanna Stoop Baby

    I called my dad last week to wish him a happy birthday.  He turned older than dirt so a call was the least I could do (you’re welcome Dad!).  My dad is one of seven of my fans and never misses a blog post so our phone call quickly turned into a “what house project […]

  • The Shrubbery

    “First you must find… another shrubbery! Then, when you have found the shrubbery, you must place it here, beside this shrubbery…”  What?!  We’re talking about shrubbery tonight on the blog so isn’t it a given that we whip out Monty Python quotes?!  Anyway…we owe you an update, or two, or three about the progress we’ve […]

  • Gardening For Dummies

    When it comes to gardening, I really don’t know what I’m doing.  It’s pretty pathetic.  Hence today’s “Gardening For Dummies” post.  So for those of you who are gardening pros (or novices since that’s a step up from a gardening dummy like me), feel free to skip on over this post and return tomorrow for […]

  • Rock On At The Neighbor’s

    In the last couple of years, we’ve really been working hard renovating the inside of our home.  Which left us with a TON of projects and to-do’s left to tackle on the outside of our home.  And the rarely photographed front yard was no exception.  Other than fixing some peeling paint, attaching lattice to the […]

  • Goose Gate: The Next Episode

    And we’re back for the final installment of our fence building extravaganza and this time it’s about the ever important Goose gate.  Since the most important reason for us building a garden fence in our backyard was to keep the dog out of the garden (especially out of the poisonous rhubarb leaves), the fence needed […]

  • Fence Building 101 Part 1

    About time I get around to the fence building post!  Super blogger slacker reporting in for fence building post duty!  We teased the fence building project a week or so ago with our “raised bed building” post back here.  Complete with a teaser photo of that swanky new, built by our own two hands, not […]

  • How To Shingle A Roof

    Hold on to your britches folks, this post is gonna be a doozy!  That is if you define doozy by using 34 pictures to illustrate how to shingle a roof. As I mentioned in yesterday’s “Roofing Tools Of The Trade” post, we finally finished shingling our porch roof.  And, of the three roofs going on with […]

  • Put A Fork In It Our Roof Is Shingled

    It’s official…we can stick a fork it in.  Our roofing project is done-zo! Instead of “Roofing With The Campbells”, I should have named the series of this post “Roofing With Mr. Campbell, Angie’s Brother, And His Friend Adam While Angie Snapped Pics From The Driveway.”  But that was just too long of a title.  I’m […]
