Carl and Jennifer at How to Build It

I am a happy wife and mom to 5 wonderful kiddies.  Life is chaotic, but beautiful.  In my *spare* time, I love to redecorate, or remodel sections of our home, or put in new landscape features and designs.  Together we make the perfect team.  Carl is a very talented and semi-professional woodworker and home improvement/DIY-er. He has years of experience working in professional cabinet shops, where he learned the very finest finishes and techniques to build high-end furniture and cabinets.

We will be posting tutorials on building furniture, refinishing furniture, DIY projects, and home and yard improvements.  We are also working on revamping the site to make it the very best it can be and more functional for our readers, so please be patient as we make those changes.

    That is definitely in the plan, just trying to get the site off the ground. Thanks for reading. I will email you as soon as I have added that feature, it shouldn’t be too long.

    I love your site! I didn’t know you could put a heater in the floor. I would love this in my bathroom but am worried about being zapped. Is this safe in there?
