This Woman Was Here

A Do-It-Yourselfer's Life Journey


Creative Construction

I became a Do-It-Yourselfer for two reasons: I wanted creative control and I couldn’t afford to hire tradesmen to do the jobs I wanted done. I have always been a recycler by virtue of finding wonderful old materials and wanting to incorporate them into structures.

Here are a couple of the projects I’ve worked on.

We had a barn raising to build our garage.
