Welcome to .

My first house was an absolute disaster. I had a super tight budget and thought I could turn a fixer upper into my dream home. Many expensive mistakes later, I knew that I had to pull up my sleeves, and learn some new skills.

With zero prior experience, I learned many DIY projects, cost-saving tricks, and home design secrets! Even with my initial mistakes, I sold my first home for a nice profit!

If you like home design, gardening, profitable investments, and DIY crafts, then this blog is for you!
