Cost-Sharing Programs/Grants For Masonry Patios, Rain Barrels, Gardens, and More From Phila. Water Dept!

December 3rd, 2015 by Kimberly Wingfield

One thing about Pennsylvania in general is that it’s usually pretty wet here.

October 11th, 2015 by Kimberly Wingfield

May 16th, 2014 by Kimberly Wingfield

While Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore discount outlets can be awesome for picking up the lion’s share of construction and decor materials alike at a rock-bottom price, there are some other things (paint, custom wood, mass quantities of certain materials,) that require a trip to retail outlets like Home Depot or Lowe’s. With that said, I […]

May 10th, 2014 by Kimberly Wingfield

Whether you’re about to undertake a complete gut rehab or a relatively simple DIY renovation/upgrade, you’ll likely find out in a hurry that the cost of basic materials, appliances, fixtures, etc. can add up quickly – even for a basic project that eschews high-end things like granite countertops, etc. Craigslist can be a great place […]
