The Tinkernation Renovation Roadtrip!
In October of 2012 we were sponsored by Tinkernation and Liquid Wrench to travel the country and visit 5 other home bloggers, invade their house for a day and work on a home renovation project of their choosing!
- We installed German siding in Asheville, NC at 86'N It
- We tiled a kitchen backsplash in Ypsilanti, MI at Turtle House
- We demo'd a master bath and carried a humongous tub down a flight of stairs, dragged it behind a truck, sweat some pipes and installed a hallway ceiling detail in Ann Arbor, MI at DIY Diva
- We installed a storm door and helped finish off some last checks marks off of Russet St. Reno's kitchen remodel in Racine, WI
- And we failed to install a ceiling light at Just a Girl with a Hammer in Portland, OR so we tried to make it up to her by checking off a bunch of little items off of her to do list
We were also lucky enough to be featured at Bobvila.com throughout the trip as well! Here are some handy How-to posts we got to write while on the trip
- Installing German siding
- Tiling a backsplash
- Soldering copper pipe fittings
- Installing shelves on a tile wall
- Framing in a switchbox
