The foundation of my table design are these legs. I tried to add some subtle curves and arches for a graceful look. I’m really happy with it. Also no fasteners, biscuits, dowels...just glue & joinery. 👍

A lovely decking area completed last year. Perfect for entertaining. Please give us a call for all Garden rooms and Decking . We offer free site visit and 3D design.
This has been my week for the most part with the exception of a flooring project that we just started demo on yesterday. 🙌🏻 we had some minor hiccups 🤦🏻♂️but overall the week was good and decently productive. #swipe

Did you know? I’m not the only designer in the family?! Yup, my brother is the owner of @kennedyhomes in Indiana and was recently awarded by the State for his recent rehab on a historical building in downtown Lafayette.
But his niche is building custom homes. Kennedy homes are a mix of exposed wood, stone, brick, open space and no detail left behind...
(My personal fav; the barn basketball court, duh!)
What’s up everyone, I am looking to hear from you on this one ⬇️ maybe you have a trade or general renovation knowledge and have helpful tips for someone who is looking to learn, can be anything specific to the trade or just general advice ⬇️
If you’ve been following my page you know all of the renovation work on our rental properties (besides most plumbing and electrical) is done by Scott and myself on a low budget! Drywalling, painting, flooring, tiling, trim work, design, ect is all my FAVORITE part of our business❤️👷♀️! That said, it does NOT come without huge frustrations and giant learning curves especially in the beginning, it may not be for everyone and sometimes is very much worth hiring out. Here are some ways I’ve been (continuously) learning these skills.
1. Do not to be afraid to ask a ton of questions EVEN if you feel it’s a stupid question, I’m sure tons of people have the same one...(Maybe even ask something below if you feel like your not quite at the advice giving stage) I’ve found amazingly helpful people through IG who are super knowledgable and passionate about their work. I learn on here literally everyday through posts/stories and ask questions constantly, I usually get a very helpful response! The Internet is a powerful tool, however make sure you are trusting multiple resources and do sooo much research before hand.
2. In my experience, I find the best way I learn is by throwing myself into the deep end by figuring it out hands on by myself. I’ve been shown so much from Scott, my parents, coworkers, and friends but it’s easy to give up when you have someone there to take over if the job gets too hard! I’ve learnt over time by trial and error and not giving up, be patient and sometimes walking away and coming back is key.
3.Don’t tackle too many things at once especially if your new, I’ve seen soooooo many 1/2 finished renovations from people who took on more than they could handle. I’ve been around renovation stuff since I was 8, now doing it full time for 2 years, I learn and grow everyday! If your brand new start small with something your interested in, for ex there’s a lot of cool stuff you can do with paint! Try a feature wall!
