Building a shed can be a DIY project, but it all depends on what you want and how big you want it. There are rules to building a shed, and sometimes you will need a permit—it depends on its size, and every municipality is different.

Scale build-up on or around your water fixtures can be an eyesore as well as a problem. As the hard water passes through your faucet or showerhead, hardness minerals in the water are deposited. Over time, these deposits build up, are unsightly and eventually restrict the water flow. Stains and buildup also affect the appearance of fixtures.
Good article on hard water here:

Things have changed a lot in the window industry—especially in the last 20 years. New technology and new materials make better windows more affordable and you’ll be amazed at what you have to choose from.

Installing a window is not a DIY job. No matter how good the window is that you buy—if it’s not installed properly it’s not worth much. It will leak air—and possibly water—and cost you money on your heating and cooling bills. You’ll end up with high energy costs. Here are five signs you need to replace your windows:

It’s official! I have always been a huge advocate of home inspections, whether you are buying, selling or renovating. I am so excited to announce that Mike Holmes Inspection Packages are now available for Costco Members in select areas (GTA and Surrounding Area, London, Halifax, Edmonton and Saskatoon).

I am thrilled with this partnership and hopefully this will encourage more people to get home inspections.

I love drinking my Reverse Osmosis (RO) water. Quality and taste are so much better than regular tap water. This system reduces trace elements, heavy metals, & bacteria —I'm so glad I had this drinking system installed at my place 👍 #HolmesApproves @KineticoHQ https://t.co/xhKVIn8jgF

Do you do your own research on materials for your home reno, or do you completely rely on your contractor’s recommendations ? Perhaps a bit of both?

You might be tempted to do your own electrical, but it's important to hire a licensed electrical contracting business to do the work. I've seen some pretty bad electrical & if done wrong your life could be put at risk @homeandsafety #ElectricalSafety https://t.co/ni6Zv4wX11

We just ordered the EcoQube (intelligent radon detector) for a new project. It is always monitoring to provide accurate radon levels, so I am leaving this with my homeowner. Love innovation and new technology👍 https://t.co/YOeqBpdI9W
