A day of work on our sunroom

In this video, we take you to work with us and show some of the steps of the building process that don't always get seen. It's all part of being a do it yourselfer though: figuring out a way to take down an old clay wall, varnishing wood, building a door from scratch.

If you're interested in any aspect of our lifestyle, Yuila and I have a philosophy that we want to share with you--just get out and do it! It's one thing to plan to do something "one day." But that day's got to come sooner or later. Planning and thinking are only the beginning. Once you know what you want, go out and give it a try! :)


  1. Well done on the double doors. Very nice job.

    And what you said about hanging double doors is accurate. They really do take a lot of little adjustments. I had two massive double doors custom made by a professional carpenter for our cellar. But within a year the doors started to bind (wood moisture content changed over time resulting in shifts due to expansion), and I had to rehang one of them myself by moving and readjusting the hinge placement.
