Put in a garden. It can be a lavish outside nursery, or a simple box window in the kitchen to grow your herbs. The addition of live plants and the appeal they bring to your home is unmatched. If you don’t have much of a green thumb, plant strong plants that need little attention, and add a timed drip or sprinkler system for easy watering.

Stay true to the property and the neighborhood when you take on major renovations. If you live on a street of suburb ranch style homes, then putting in a colonial mansion is not going to get you the desired result you’re after. It will be out of place and not something anyone else will be willing to pay for later.

Fix floor squeaks with a few drywall screws. While a second person waits below in the crawl space or basement, walk over your floor and locate where the squeaking is occurring. Signal to the person below where the problem is. They can insert a drywall screw through the sub floor and into the flooring to stop the squeak.

If you have water leaking from the top of the tap of your faucet, there are two ways you can solve this problem. First try tightening the gland nut. The gland nut keeps the spindle of the tap in place. If this doesn’t work, try replace the rubber seal on the spindle, also known as the O-ring.


Do not be ashamed to call in a professional. Knowing you did all your home repairs yourself can be rewarding. That pride might come with a steep price tag though. Sometimes it is best to give in and just call in a handyman. Depending on the situation, they might be able to do it faster and for less money than you could.

Even novices can repair leaky faucets. Repairing a faucet quickly will minimize wasted water as well as wasted dollars on your bill. The savings you get from this will add up since your water bill will go down.

If you are employing a handyman to do some work, get everything in writing. This way they cannot take advantage of you or add extra charges since everything is down in writing. Not having a contract could really end up coming back to hurt you.

The days of calling a plumber or electrician for minor household repairs are long gone, not to mention the outrageous costs. Today, hundreds of websites are dedicated to sharing how-to tips and tricks, in a way that is easily understood by even the most reluctant handyman. You will find step-by-step directions and many also, include video demonstrations.

These tips probably sparked a multitude of ideas for you. Just remember not to bite on more than you can chew. Start with a small project and do more work around your house as you acquire new skills and feel more comfortable. Home improvement should remain fun and useful for you.

Can you believe what I’m about to write here, a bloody drone! Yes a so called lost drone cruises through the sky above the Barbican as it makes its way to the Plymouth Theatre to join The Drone Orchestra, gotta laugh and swear here, you don’t need specsavers it’s an all singing all bells chiming fabulicious Drone Orchestra and no its not coming from Mars or the NSA.

Drone Plymouth

Next your son or even your young lady will want one for Christmas hopefully instead of that bendy iPhone 6, hey they could even have a camera drone UAV’s are becoming more and more popular and more affordable as competition increases. You can get really inexpensive drone that have a camera and will take video or stills (closed your bedroom windows). These would be in the toy/trainer class, still will be the same price as that bendy phone.

Before we get snapped and zapped lets jump into a passing Limo and speed down to The Barbican I must say I have always loved this Elizabethan-Medieval area with its bars, coffee shops, rough edge and cosmopolitan touches –it overflows with history touch of class too, and when I think of the seafarers that have passed through here-well! Sir Francis Drake came straight to my blood vessels, a hardy rush and flush.

Now if you not asleep after that Drone attack and slinky smooth sea air of the Barbican then let’s go to the Gin Distillery in the Barbican I haven’t been for a while as it’s expensive but they do the best cocktails, obviously with gin in them, I must say I had a good one called ‘Seven Bells’ once a while back though.

My favorite thing about Plymouth besides those irritating flying drones is the water and the sky. I love it when its not raining as the mixture of blues shine through the sea, you can walk on the West Hoe and take a deep breath of the sea, breath in breath out relax you’re home now.
