Photos of beautifully restored homes are great to look at—but they won’t do you much good if you don’t know how the homeowners got there. Enter Josh of Bungalow 23: He’s a Minneapolis DIY-er who meticulously chronicles every bit of the work he undertakes on his 1923 Arts & Crafts home. In addition to detailing projects like replacing a shower valve and patching a drain pipe, he also features regular reviews of his favorite tools.
Somehow I missed the incoming link from the OHJ site when Clare’s review was first posted. Despite my delayed response, I’m honored anytime someone likes this site well enough to admit it publicly. (Thanks, Clare!) Here are some of the how-to and tool review posts to which the article refers:
- How to Replace a Moen Shower Valve Cartridge
- Replacing a Radiator Valve
- Patched Drain Pipe
- Early Christmas Present
- Cool Tool: DeWalt Tracksaw
- Cool Tool: Hand Pruners
The blog roundup included several other great blogs, too, so go check out Clare’s list. And if you have other “best of” suggestions, share your recommendations in the comments.
