Any joking aside… this is one super serious announcement! We have the new kid on the block, new website for all who love to remodel, renovate, improve and decorate their homes –

I hope this new site will have the same community spirit that you can feel here each day. Great people talking about their passion, sharing experiences and showcasing the projects…

Invite your friends, spread the word and become one of the first HomeRefurbers by registering here.

... I’d like to personally thank all of you for the encouragement and positive energy. This announcement wouldn’t be possible without the LumberJocks. THANKS!

Way to go Martin. I was just wondering when we would see this new site, and what would be its name. Nice job.

well Martin, I think you’ve captured all of my passions/hobbies… unless “sitting-on-the-couch-and-watching-movies-and-just-taking-a-break-to-rest-jocks” is in the works.

May our spouses (and bosses) see us offline once and a while. Amen.

Great job.

It’s going to be interesting to watch the three sites unfold and become their own identities and support each other.
Congratulations Mr.G-man (inside joke).

I am sure that I speak for a lot of us when I say that we simply need some more time during the day as it simply isn’t long enough. Could you please reprogram the Earth’s rotation so that we can get an extra 2 hour or so in order to check all the posts on LJs and Home Refurbers? I have complete confidence in your abilities to do this as I am struggling to keep up now. :)
