I have been painting, repairing or restoring old Victorians (Queen Anne, Gothic and more) since the 1970's. I decided to share what I've learned with people like you that want to do it themselves and save.

Many people spend thousands to get what they could usually do in a weekend or two. That's what this site is about. Everything here except plans and templates are free. There's a gallery with all kinds of pictures to help you imagine, get ideas, decorate or even build your own dream home.

Yes I sell my plans and templates but I go into a lot of detail for free, provide links to specialist companies and material suppliers and generally help the do it yourselfer save money and have fun doing it themselves. That's much more rewarding for me.


Start with thinking about something and wanting it bad enough to make it happen.


You said you can when others said they can't. Your project is complete because you made it happen.

I have something for everyone.

From running trim, ballusters, brackets, interior painting, stenciling, wood working, furniture building, gardening, landscape designs, walking path stones and atriums and sheds.

What we do

Our specialization

I have assembled as many links as I could, placed pages with info and details, show you haw to fix or build something for your home and help you to do it yourself.
