However, over the years, DogGoneHandy’s crew has handled plenty of small-budget projects with big results, and we’ve found that home repairs don’t have to be “ruff” on your wallet! Here are some of our favorite ways to customize your home on a shoestring...

Even old nail holes from artwork and pictures can detract from the look of your home’s interior. There are many reasons why...

Over the past few years, Atlanta has become a rentals hotspot.

For most of us, our home is the most valuable thing we’ve ever purchased or owned.
