It's finally happening!!!!
"It" of course is the HGTV pilot!
For those of you who are newer here, it's been my dream to take my love of simple woodworking and showcase it through TV. To me, seeing makes believers. And I believe everyone should know how to use a drill and a saw, that our sweetest girls, as well as our toughest boys, should be taught basic carpentry skills, and that you are never too old to cut a board and make something awesome.
It's been a true honor to have an opportunity to take this great passion of mine - my life's work, second only to my children - and pursue a television show on HGTV, set right here in my home of Alaska.
And then he arrived, and the whole world stood still for at least a week or two. I've never been so content to just be.
We were pretty lucky to be able to take a little bit of time off to treasure our new baby and our sweet daughter.
But at just seven weeks old, baby Hayes was on set,
and we filmed two pilot episodes for HGTV.
Man do I ever have respect for working moms. It was tough.
But so so so fun!
You will never guess what we are doing here!
Or how proud I was of this room!!!! You will never guess what this room was before we tackled it! There were DIY projects stacked on top of DIY projects for this room! I can't wait to share ALL the plans with you!
Despite working through -30F temperatures, long days followed by long nights with a nursing newborn baby, it was definitely one of the best experiences (besides our family) of my life.

I'm so proud to invite you to watch the pilot episodes, premiering tomorrow at 1PM EST on HGTV -
We've done our very best and are proud of the results. But whether this pilot turns into a TV show will greatly depend on ratings, so please, set your DVRs, and share with your friends and family!
Thank you so much for your support!
