Making Where You Live
a Better Place to Be.

Welcome to Housecraft. I started this blog by sharing stories about DIY renovations, interior design, gardening
and recipes. Over time I realized that where you live isn't just about your house. When you zoom in it's about

ecosystems. From now on I'm going to take a wider look around. Hope you'll join me.
