If you have been reading me a while then you know I am obsessed with Ana White and what she does and the amazing service she provides to all of us starter DIYers. In my case, my new found passion of building comes from a combination of cheapskate, owning a new home that needs lots of things I can't afford, loving to build, and a very stubborn attitude that leads me to say, "I could do that for cheaper" even when walking through Ikea! Shh don't tell anyone!
Well Ana and her family are building a home for their mothers in Alaska. This has left them VERY busy and she is unable to keep up with actually building all the projects she can design. This is fine except that you really need to be able to build it to make sure it is totally doable for those beginners that don't have the know how of adjusting. So, her exciting solution: She contacted some of the most active contributors to her blog- I being one of them. She has asked if we would be willing to give her a list of some of the things we want to build around our own homes. Send her the ideas, she will design and create a plan, she pays for the building costs, we build it, we photograph it, we blog it, and we keep it. UH! I get how this is still profitable for her, but come on? Is there even a question in there? Of course I am up for that? Awesome.
