Tobias, if you have kids, check out the Ana White website.  There's a lot of good, free plans for stuff they'd like.
How about stuff cats will like?

I took the vacuum apart and cleaned all of the Mrs. Gooch hair out of it and put it back together. That is a :Yuck: job that I will never do again. Better to just get a new vacuum.

Cottonwood fluff had clogged my AC unit so I took off the outer shell and torched it off and then sprayed it out with water and it looks pretty clean now.

This was after it was so hot yesterday it couldn't keep up.  Like 75 inside at 10 at night.  It was colder outside than in my house.  Awful.

Is this a joke thread? There are people on this blog that can't take care of themselves?

Cold water valve to the washing machine cracked a small leak, replaced it and the new line, feels good.

Trying to decide whether to replace steering wheel pump on my Honda or have a mechanic do it for 3 to 3.5 times the price of doing it myself.

Freaking water in the basement.  Been fighting this crap for 25 years.  I suck at this.

Good thing you got a dock. Just float around the entertainment area. :)

Seriously though, that stinks. Had water issues at the old house. Live on hill now thankfully.

Dock is not a bad idea.

Wells are North end house and sump is South end.  Moved a truck load of dirt with a skid steer a few years ago.. need to do more grade work based on elevations in the yard.

Pouring my own pier caps to clean up crumbling brick on each end of house.  Basement may be a mess but will look good on the outside.

when a PAK'd bud came over and walked into my closed screen door, part of the screen came out (about 18 inches worth on the side, about 6 inches on the bottom

read online about fixing it with a spline tool, bought one at the home depot, dominated the broken screen
