 April, May have been great but June will be too.
April is coming to an end and what a month it was. We kept quite busy this month with a variety of project. This month we have, replaced a few toilets, re caulked countless tubs and showers, repaired a set of old cabinet doors, filled every drywall blemish in a condo and painted the entire place, built some access panels, Installed two reserved parking signs and many other small jobs. We even had a weekend at the cottage, to get the water running and the septic tank running smoothly. We hope you all enjoyed your April as much as we did and that you enjoy what we have in store for you to read down below.

My Vanaisa (Grandpa) would do this all the time. In fact we have one at the entrance to our cottage that he built before I (Erik) was born. Below is an instructional video on how you make one of these tire planters. If you give it a shot, we'd love your feedback on how it went.
