All Home-Improvements are not created equal . . .

Our-Home-Improvements is all about sharing with you how we implement our budget-conscious, do-it-yourself improvements with one purpose . . . improve our lifestyle and get the biggest return-on-investment possible from our home.

It's FREE + EASY to learn from our successes that have been inspired by some of the country's top designers and the extensive consumer research that goes into each and every product review we undertake. We consider the acquisition of any new products that are brought into our home as a home improvement, as it improves our lifestyle in one way or another.

Home & Garden Product Reviews

We currently have two home-improvements projects we're working on at the same time, along with several product reviews.

The first project is the complete renovation of an existing sun porch into the home office of our dreams. It's coming along nicely as you can see below. We'll have the full story developed later today so be sure to bookmark this page and come back soon.

The second project is a complete makeover of the second floor master bedroom into a more contemporary serene oasis for the nightly slumber. What a mess! More to come shortly on this one.

Your comments help us spread the word and also helps keep us running in this day and age. And, be sure to sign up for Lifestyles Today and get our FREE e-newsletter full of great improvement ideas from around the web.

Be An Educated Consumer

To help you be an educated consumer, OHI produces helpful product reviews weekly on products that you'll find all around your home.

You'll find these timely and pertinent product reviews for things that are affecting us all right now, like keeping your thirst quenched, zapping those bugs, and keeping your lawn and garden irrigated during this hot summer we're having.

We typically cover the main features of the product, technical specifications, what customers say, who the product is suitable for, and what we think about it.

We're currently reviewing the best irrigation systems for your yard and other outdoor spaces. These watering systems are convenient and once you set them, you can forget them.
