    Recliner-Bunk for Camper

    This makes me miss the good old camping days with our mobile home back in the days. I guess this idea could finally help us relive those beautiful moments where outdoor memories were made with loved ones.

  • How to Make WINDMILL Generator From Cardboard for Science Project at Home

    It wouldn't be a Science project for children if parents need to intervene and eventually do most of the work. Nonetheless, the great effort would definitely help to boost a student's grades because of how flawless the entire project looks like in the end.

  • Restoration of a 1957 Hupp - Perfection  2 Burner Kerosene Stove

    I have yet to get my hands on vintage items to rework on. I think the whole project would require careful attention since it involves flammable items. It might also require at least some expertise in order not to damage the aged items.

    The Base Camp Trailer

    I imagine that you can create so many different things when you have an engineering background to support all of your calculations! I would be happy to build things, but I wouldn't think that they would be fit for use by anyone but myself. Heaven forbid I build some sort of structure that comes crashing down on people at the end of the day! I don't need that kind of pressure!

  • Fab-House (a Modular Open Source House Made From Cnc-cut-parts)

    This modular open source house could open up various opportunities to help address the issue of homelessness not just within this vicinity, but everywhere else as well. Though it might not directly become a solution in the near future, it could offer an alternative as a long-term plan. The idea can be further explored to see how a homelessness predicament at any given location can be tagged to such a modular house accommodation option.

    It's amazing what a little bit of contact paper can do for the look of your storage cabinets isn't it? I prefer neutral tones and greys myself, but this is an easy and simple fix to spruce up the home no doubt!

    Dollhouse

    I secretly have always wanted a dollhouse for myself but up to date, I have yet to have one in my possession. I think the general stigma that revolves around dollhouses is that they are just for girls to play with. However, just a single project building just one dollhouse definitely takes a lot more effort than just "playing".

    DIY Fence With Removable Sections

    It is really smart to use fences to conceal the eyesore of the compressor units. Previously, we only used partition panels but they wouldn't stand strong winds for too long. Fences are a better idea that would work!

    Building a Floating Deck

    A deck is a really lovely accompaniment for the yard if you ask me. Unless you've got a great lawn, which as we all know, is notoriously difficult to maintain, having a nice wooden deck put in could make the whole aesthetic of your garden improve by leaps and bounds!

    The wallpaper adds an elegant touch especially the interiors which would have otherwise looked dull and boring. I personally would have used paint instead which would have costed more and took up more time.

    At the neighbourhood where I am staying at, some of the residents have started a similar roof project where everyone can benefit from. We simply get together at least once a week to garden as a team and reap the literal fruits of our own labour to help one another save costs and to explore our passion.

    Faux-Stone Plastic Organizer

    I think it's nice to give the little storage shelves in the house a bit of a sprucing up every once in a while. I like the fact that the items in my house are a one-of-a-kind kind of thing too!

    Ity Bity Living Space.

    Tiny spaces are challenging to work with especially with 2 young kids in tow! However, at the end of the day, it is all about organizing as much as possible. It could be tough to manage regular housekeeping with an infant and a running toddler but if you clean-as-you-go, you would find that there is little to no cleaning at all that needs to be done! This means that as soon as you see a little mess, start picking it up so that they remain at their original spots and it would get easier to move around.

    Pallet Wood Flower Box Planter

    I'm trying to figure out how I can make these storage boxes or planters a little bit more customised for plants. I think that a drainage or a sieve like panel might help with water retention in there perhaps? Or maybe it's just best to have the bottom totally solid wood so that nothing falls out when you put water in!

    Home Darkroom Design for Small Spaces

    I have always wanted my own darkroom but I have no real expertise in this field. I am keen even though I do not have prior experience whatsoever in photo development. If I do have my own darkroom, perhaps I could pick up on the hobby and increase my experience level over time. I guess I need to explore my options to see where I could actually head to with limited resources and a lack of storage space does not help.

    Seems like this might be a good idea for a child's activity table with storage too! The base design looks rather similar and I'm sure that using this garden trough for other things is very possible! If I do give it a go, I'll let you know and take pictures for you to see how your design has worked in that regard! Cheers!

    Clamp in Bedside Table

    That's an interesting idea! I reckon that it won't be able to take a very heavy weight and I most definitely wouldn't recommend eating food in bed either though! But I think that with a little modification, this could be really very useful for the study table or coffee table for instance! Plenty of solutions can be found with this basic building block!

    I love that the design is so versatile! I'm most definitely going to be able to scale this little storage unit to another size for the living room or other spaces in the house. I reckon that it would look really nice in the study for documents or to make the kids use as a storage box for their toys too! Thanks for the idea!

  • Closet Transformation - Fixing an Old Closet

    Everyone could use some extra closet space, be it a man or a woman. The idea is not just to gain storage but to also keep things well-organized for easy retrieval on a daily basis. I guess when things are in order, they tend to stay that way longer.

    I am loving how this family loves their books so much that they are able to create a whole room for it! I would be a little freaked out at the number of storage shelves that needed dusting at the end of the day. But if you really enjoy your books and have that many that you could make a room out of it, it certainly would look impressive when all of the books are in!

  • How to Prepare a Motorcycle for Winter Storage

    It is important to perform proper storage procedures for your vehicles and electronics to ensure they are still in a good working condition after the season ends. Another alternative is to rent self storage units with a climate control feature that can help maintain the tools and equipment throughout the entire season so you can rest at ease.
