StepKnob3d printed step knob
The kids kept stepping on the lowest drawer knob in the bathroom in order to reach the countertop. This bent the knob over, so I 3d printed a new one out of stainless steel. You can get your own here!

It may have actual ivory key surfaces.
The gutters all empty into a closed pipe which carries the rainwater to the rain barrel.
A solid half of the garage roof runoff is collected and directed into a rain barrel (on the right).
And, since I probably should have done this in the first place, here is the pot hanger with brass s-hooks instead of the custom welded stainless t-hooks.
The street address labeling is crappy on our street, so I made a sign for our house so that people can find it when they come over.
We used to have to either walk around the front lawn, or tromp through it to get to the mail each day. Now there's this beautiful path!
Anna dug the channel for the path by hand. Did a really nice job too!

SecretTunnel01A "secret" tunnel in our house
Our house has a utility room in the middle of the basement. This is nice for keeping the various pumps and heaters seperate from the living space, but unfortunate in that it cuts the basement roughly in half. We "fixed" this problem by cutting some holes in the walls. The tunnel is roughly defined by the 2x4 frames that we put up, with a plywood "roof" tall enough for an adult to sit, or a child to stand. Teddy sees nothing remarkable about this.

Eventually we'd like to finish the openings with some cabinet doors or something, but for now they are simple holes cut in the drywall.
