I can’t remember the exact place where I was introduced to Murphy beds, but I wanted one. Over a year ago I stopped into a store called More Space Place in Lakewood Ranch and I was hooked. My wife wasn’t sold immediately, but liked the idea too. We have an odd shaped bedroom and we […]

That’s right no basements in Florida! Why are there no basements in Florida? It has to do with the water table being about a foot or less below ground! Ok if it can’t be done, it can’t be done. As someone who grew up in Ohio (lived there almost 30 years) I can attest that a basement really lets […]
I found a great article from the New York Times about what $250,000 gets you in Bradenton, FL, Columbus, OH, and Keokuk, Iowa.

The items for sale were from the Walt Disney World Caribbean Resorts. We were interested in the bed […]

About two months later we found a reasonable electrician to run the power to the back of the house and fire up the tub. The tub needed a major makeover. The cover was shot and the wooden sides were covered in mildew and dirt. Fortunately the heater was in good shape. Here is what Josh […]
Yeah that’s what we thought. So 2 years ago we decided to get up early on a Saturday and hit the Lakewood Ranch Neighborhood Garage Sale, which happens twice a year. Right off the bat we walk up to a house where a lady is standing out front with a sign around her neck that […]
