Building a house...I mean yurt...again.  Getting started.

I’m going to TRY to keep y’all up to date on the progress (its slow, I know) of the yurt addition I am adding here at the JuicyMaters homestead.  I keep trying to remember to take pictures of everything as I add the bedroom/yurt to what was the entire yurt home until I married a gal named Cindy and her daughter, Sarah, but sometimes I forget. A note here on the room in a yurt.  Its great for one person, and its great for two, and it might even be great for a couple with a baby, but for two

Redefining your Bathroom: Rustic Edition   Going all-out to redesign and completely renovate your bathroom to reflect your love for rustic décor is not necessary.  You can add a few touches here and some decorations there and make a significant difference.  Take, for example, some window shutters made of unfinished and older wood.  While not drastically changing the room or an expensive addition it certainly makes a difference and really livens-up the bathroom.  If you’re short on other rustic bathroom ideas, consider some of these as well: Mirror bordered by unfinished wood For bathrooms with a simple hanging mirror that

Who ARE y'all, anyway?

When I ask “who are y’all”, it is YOU I am asking.  Not some other person who might be reading this a city or state or even country away from you..and not even that visiting neighbor who is reading this over your shoulder, but YOU!

JuicyMaters' Yurt-ers, ahead of the curve

After doing my weekly new scan for several topics, including yurts, I discovered this week that the perception of us yurt-ers is changing, that we are being considered less weird, becoming more and more accepted, and looked at as being less and less…well…less and less “nuts”. We seem to have become just a bit ahead of the curve, and yurts are becoming “trendy”!
