Top 20 Posts of 2014

Today is the last day of 2014. Can you believe it? I thought it would be fun to take a look back at some of 2014’s most popular posts. It’s always a little surprising to see what takes off and what doesn’t.

I’ve also been looking at the results from the reader survey (if you haven’t taken it yet there is still time!) and I was a little surprised. Most people wanted to see more DIY Building plans in 2015. It’s kinda funny how that works out because I haven’t shared a whole lot of those, but building is definitely my favorite thing to do! It’s super hard to build here in the winter, and this past summer I was working hard on my kitchen remodel. Obviously the things I truly love most are what you guys want to read… so in 2015, I will be building some pretty exciting things! My wheels are already turning! Just bear with me on the time frame. The wind chill today is -26. Cutting wood in that and then hauling everything down to my basement with a 17 month old is a rather difficult task. My garage isn’t insulated so when I say it’s freezing out there… I truly mean it! ; ) But projects will come! There is some smaller stuff I can get done in my basement until the weather warms up!

But let’s take a look at the top 20 projects of 2014!
