I have been reviewing every service provider that we have worked with over the course of moving into our new home. This one has been long pending.
Take a wild guess. What is this kitchen made of?
Got ya. You guessed steel for both first and second, didn’t you. The first one is made of wood, and the second one of steel. But, you couldn’t tell the difference. Could you?
As you tour new homes, how often have…
There’s something about taking a peek inside real homes. There’s a bit of suspense of what lies behind those doors, of how people dress up their homes, and the excitement builds if the doorway is tastefully decorated. I enjoy taking you through real homes as much as DIY posts.
What I have for you today is another renovated home from Jyothika Baleri of Destination Designs. Over…
Owning a house was THE goal after kids’ education and wedding for our parents’ generation.
That is slowly changing now with most of us getting an apartment in early 20s.
Signing on the dotted line in the agreement should bring happiness.
Ads show images of folks like us sitting on the balcony/lawn sipping tea leisurely flipping through the pages of newspaper.
Often, they are flanked by manicured lawns, a…
Scared of 3D design software to design your home?
Struggling to find a way to communicate with your designer?
I hear you. I was in your shoes. Not too long ago.
In this post, I’m going to share three tools and a bunch of tricks to help you design your house and communicate effectively with your carpenter/designer. A small caveat before we begin: I do not have any…

I’m reminded of this quote when I look at this structure: “The structures were austere and simple, until one looked at them and realized what work, what complexity of method, what tension of thought had achieved the simplicity.” Ayn Rand – The Fountainhead
If you are reading this post at work, I suggest you come back to it later….
Have you ever tried solving a 750-pieces or more jigsaw puzzle with a time limit?
Didn’t complete it, of course, within the time limit.
Building a house is like a novice juggling 10 balls in the air, or solving a 1000-pc jigsaw puzzle. Just when you think you have everything figured out, there’s a whole new dimension that appears out of nowhere. This is a project…
9 months. Ah, no. I’m not talking about how long it takes to deliver a baby. That’s how long it took for us to find our new home and sign the agreement. We thought the hard part was over. Who would have known it would take an equally long time to find an interior designer; one who would give…
