We were asked a while back by one of our friends and readers the question, “What are the first tools that I should buy for remodeling?” So we have been thinking about this for a while. When I first started my collection I asked the same question. I had no idea as to the tools […]

Welcome Back to our Retro Remodel Series. This is the story of our first house remodel, while we were in college (FYI for new comers).

Here is the bathroom before and after summary post. After: Link to detailed description of remodel.
