How to Find a Trustworthy Handyman or Home Repair Company
If you’re inviting anyone into your home, no matter the purpose behind the invitation, you hope that this person will be trustworthy. Inviting someone into your home is an act of trust in itself, even if it’s as simple as having your internet modem installed. Many people consider that construction workers or perhaps repairmen are simply coming into fix something, but to have your cherished home worked on is quite an intimate activity. You trust the handyman to complete the job, to respect your space, and to do so in a manner that rectifies the issue instead of creating new ones.

You Have A Man Cave - Is It Time To Build Her a She Shed?
When I first presented this idea to some guy friends, they laughed. The response I got was, "why - she already has the whole house to be hers!" While that's true that generally your wife is in control of how things are organized, decorated, and even scented for most of your home - that doesn't mean it is truly a space for HER. Most women... especially those who work from home or are stay-at-home moms certainly don't look at the home as a place where she can relax and enjoy life. While she might organize the kitchen in a certain way... it's often simply so she can get her job done easier.

If your yard is more shabby than a show home, and you’ve got a reputation to protect, you’ve come to the right place.
Unexpected Things You Might Find When Renovating A Garage
Garages are wonderful things. So much so that they’re a non-negotiable addition on many a home buyer’s list. Not only do they provide private protected parking, but they also give you the option to expand your living space or even just simply store "stuff". In an age where we’re growing out of our homes like there’s no tomorrow, that’s a sure plus. Unfortunately for those of you who might be looking at that space out back that hasn't been used in ages... watch out! There may be some unexpected surprises waiting for you in there...

Whether it’s converting the garage or installing new lights; you can be sure there’s always something. So, it should come as no surprise that many of us rush into projects in attempts to get them over with. On the weekend, we might attempt to start and finish something on Saturday so we can unwind on Sunday. However, we should never forget the saying, "Measure Twice... Cut Once!"

Things You Might Not Know about Changing Your Motor Oil
Changing your oil is one of those things that most people just take for granted and don't really consider anything more than the fact that they have to do it every few months. While I'll never been on an pit team, most of us "have a guy" that can do it and a few of us even have actually done it themselves. But most of us really have never considered why we do it and what that oil actually does for us. For me, the first time I saw the difference between clean engine oil and the dirty stuff on my dipstick, I was amazed.
Why Ethanol is Bad For Your Lawn Mower and Other Power Tools
I've been a fan of TruFuel for a while now - frankly speaking, it's convenient and less messy than having to mix petrol and oil to make it the right formula for my 2-stroke engine power tools. That was enough for me, I'm generally pretty happy just that something saves me time and energy. What about that third selling point though, the fact that it contains no ethanol. Why is ethanol bad though and how does it actually hurt your engine? Let's take a look...

With the hot days of summer rapidly coming to an end, it's time to start thinking about how you will be spending those cold winter days.

Maintenance Tips To Get Your Car Ready for Winter
Fall is typically not a season that triggers that sort of alarm. However, bear in mind that as the summer heat dissipates to make way for the fall season, it’s bound to get colder as the months pass. Indeed, in no time at all, it’s winter.
Gladiator GearBox Review - Like a Safe For Your Tools!
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Gladiator GarageWorks. All opinions are 100% mine.
I have been a fan of the Gladiator brand for many years. Sometimes though, it's hard to believe that the same company (Whirlpool) that makes machines designed for the kitchen and laundry room can make some of the toughest, most manly organization products on the market today. Well, actually that's not so surprising when you think about the durability and design that everyone loves from their products in the Kitchenaid, Whirlpool, and Maytag brands. But when it comes to the garage, Gladiator is one of my favorite brands and once you experience it yourself, you'll see why.
Four Ways To Save Money With DIY Car Care
Hopefully by now, you've had a chance to recover from holiday spending and maybe you're expecting a refund. Even so, money is money and it's always good to have more. Plus, I feel like us men are "expected" to know how to do stuff, but honestly, I'm not a mechanic... and I know a lot of you guys aren't either. Don't worry though, while installing a supercharger or replacing an exhaust pipe might be beyond most of us, there are things we can do our selves that will help save money compared to sending the car to the garage to get it fixed.
