  • Gardening 家庭菜園 Day 27
  • 4/9/2018 Gardening update! We are slowly getting ready for the garden. We purchased garden soil yesterday and put it in the raised
    garden bed. The plants are still kept in the house and growing happily:) I guess we still have to wait 1 to 2 weeks before transp

  • Bookshelf 本棚
  • 4/4/2018 There are many books in the boxes at our basement. And we have been thinking for a long time what kind/shape/size of book
    shelf is suitable for our house. Rich finally came up with an excellent idea that make two bookshelves and attach them both side o
    f the Murphy bed. It sounded great! He designed the shelves right away and bought plywood(birch) from Lowe’s. It took less than

  • Gardening 家庭菜園 Day 18
  • 3/28/2018 Gardening update! It’s been almost 3 weeks since we planted seed. About a half are doing great and the rest are either
    taking time to germinate or not growing (due to the room temperature and/or lack of sunlight). Anyway, the ground still gets fros
    t so we have to wait until frost-free season comes to transplant them into the garden. Still long way to go!2018年3月28日 種

  • Planter プランター #1
  • 3/14/2018 We are making some plans for our garden, what to put where and so on. There are two raise bed planters in our garden but
    these need to be protected with net or fence from deer and rabbits(This is another project that we need to work on). We also have
    a secured wood deck connected to the dining room so we decided to use this space for some herbs and small vegetables. Rich decide

  • Molding モールディング #3
  • 2/8/2018 It is in progress! We finished one of the guest rooms with craftsman style molding but we decided not to use the same one
    s for the rest of the house. The supplier of this molding is 1.5 hours drive away from us(each way) so it is kind of inconvenient
    and also it is taking too much time cutting and putting pieces together… So we chose 4.5″ one(more like regular look) in stead
