    Concrete Zelda Steps

    I love the additional greenery component as it allows a homely touch to still be created alongside the whole concrete setting. People would definitely be in awe while walking on these steps which is an attraction even before setting foot in the house.

    A Tiny Telescope Observatory

    That is a gorgeous piece of housing for the telescope. And it makes a lovely picture when you've got all that lovely field and scenery about it! And that sunset is really just lovely. The pictures you're sharing are probably only as comparable to the ones that you're viewing through the lens though! Thanks for sharing your build!

    Tiny Home Office Shed

    There are many uses of mobile tiny homes and to utilize them in the way you desire would mean fully optimizing their full capability. They are available in different sizes so build one that would accommodate your needs. Apart from that, you would also need to consider just how much outdoor space you have got to offer in order not to go beyond your means. When your structure is way bigger than the actual yard, then you might have problems.

    Rustic Wooden Chandelier

    I absolutely love this design which complements my current raw, industrial theme perfectly. However, the sets I have seen at stores could be quite costly just for some lamps. It would help me save a lot if I can work on them at home!

    I would often leave it to the professionals when electrical components are involved. Furthermore, this particular project even includes some security credentials which I think needs even more expertise.

    I am personally really in awe each time I get to see a terrarium in person. I feel that the amount of effort put in each and every single one of them is a tremendous load and needs careful and intricate skills to set one up. I guess patience is truly a key here

  • Easily Soundproof a Stainless Steel Sink

    This is something interesting to think about. I think that I have some sound-proofing tape that is just lying around the storage room somewhere. Now I have this itch to start pasting it everywhere to see how I can reduce those odd sounds that go bump in the night! Haha! Thanks for the idea mate!

  • How to Make a SOFA That Turns Into a BED

    I love this sort of versatile furniture. Especially when it has storage built into it all too! It really makes sense as homes are getting smaller and smaller and we really have to maximise the real estate that we have at home. I would definitely want to try giving this build a go in my spare time!

    This is a really nice twist on a corner storage shelf unit. It's not something that people would think of doing right off the bat, but the little bit of extra effort you put in to change the panels up a little bit make a huge difference in the overall look of the shelving when you're done! Thanks for sharing your work!

    Tiny Tiny House

    This tiny house is actually pretty amazing! But I couldn't live in a tiny home that didn't at least have indoor plumbing. I can't imagine what I would need to do if I had to go and there wasn't a decent place around for me to go at! For a house that incorporates that, it would need to be at least twice the size, no?

Unless of course they are certified or have experience building on their own… Not to mention the amount of plumbing and electrical knowledge they'd have to have to set up an entire home... Wow!

    I think it is a reasonable price for the students to pay even though I am pretty certain that the attendance rate will be on an extreme low on both of those 2 additional days. Nobody would want to come back to school after graduation unless there are criteria set like not being able to graduate and so on if they fail to repay those 2 extra days.

Definitely something I could try in Summer next year when camping season starts!

  • How to dry-sautee mushrooms for eating or storage!

    Thanks for sharing this simple yet highly useful step which can help save a lot of costs due to food wastages. I have always stored my mushrooms and other vegetables in ziplock bags but they do not last as long and might contain a stench even after a short period of time. I think I should include this dry sauté process in my list of things to do when preparing to move house as it might take me some time to open up the fridge even after settling down at the new home.

  • Flat pack for storage Plywood Picnic Table

    I have always loved DIY furniture pieces which are low cost and easy or convenient enough to make. This is because when I need to move out to a new location, I can just simply leave my current furniture pieces behind or dispose them off as they are not expensive and I can just build new ones upon arriving at the new house. This concept really helps me in making house move easier and saves time and effort.

  • Fishing Pole Storage - Great for Apartment, Shed or Garage!

    Thanks for sharing this instructable that I have been searching high and low for. I have a few rods up in my self storage unit that are simply tied together in a bunch and leaned against the wall which is definitely not a smart way to store them. I think a piece or two have broken due to being tied tightly together for quite some time now. With this ceiling storage system, I can store them in good condition at home and retrieve them conveniently whenever I feel like fishing.

  • TARDIS bookcase cupboard - Goodhart Maker Den of Unequity Storage Cabinet

    This is an amazing idea and doesn’t seem that hard to build. I have just the right tools up in my storage unit which have not been in operation for quite some time now so I guess it is the perfect time to gear them up with this cool project. However, I am not entirely a huge fan of Doctor Who so I might just tweak the design a little and come up with something else.

    Retro TV unit

    Being able to build your own furniture pieces is definitely a great skillset to own. It makes it all easier and more convenient eventually when you need to move out. This piece of modern media console looks portable due to its size as compared to many other bulky ones easily found in stores. Hence, it would be much easier to prepare furniture for removal when the need arises sooner or later.

    Workshop Storage

    Tools are not something that I use on a regular basis so I have decided to conveniently dump all of them in a storage box and stowed away for good in my storage unit until further need arises. However, as time passes by, their physical condition deteriorates as their metal pieces get in contact with one another to produce rust. This workshop idea would definitely help me solve my issue with my tools and have them within sight for easy retrieval.

However, this instructable looks exciting even though I am not entirely into DJ-ing but I think I could build something similar to this for my stereo or as a media console at the living room. It would definitely be a centerpiece with lots of storage space to conceal in all the mess like newspapers and such.

  • Adjustable Hanging Garage Storage System

    I have always been utilizing my wall space with racks and shelves but for bulky items, I have no other options but to stack them on the floor instead which take up a lot of room. Hence, they could at times be knocked over and cause a mess especially in the dark. I have also thought of storing them temporarily in a nearby storage unit as they only get used occasionally. However, with this storage system idea things might just change around the garage.

  • Build a Modular Storage Bed For Cheap In Like, 5 Seconds. And Save The World A Little.

    Who does not welcome additional storage space around the house right? And underneath the bed is definitely one of the perfect locations to utilize in order to create some room. Thus far, I have only been using bed raisers which help to elevate the bed by a few inches good enough for me to squeeze in some storage boxes which are clearly still insufficient. I think I have a few of the pallets and other stuff necessary to build this modular bed in my self storage unit which can finally be worked on.
