We love living on our 1-acre property in a big neighborhood because it allows us to have our privacy and space yet stay connected to our neighbors and their families. Since we do most of our projects in our garage or driveway, especially when it's warm, we get the chance to meet so many neighbors as they take walks or play with their kids. It's an awesome opportunity to build connections and share our story.
Last summer, one of our neighbors trusted us to learn some new skills in order to build him a solid wood aquarium stand for his new fish tank. So as his hobbies during the pandemic grew, so did ours and we are so grateful!
The blog outlines our basic process, but you can purchase a PDF version of the plan for this aquarium stand for the details to build your own.
This fish tank stand was the first full custom piece that we've built from scratch. It turned out to be pretty great and we're pleased considering how many learning curves we faced. Now that I'm finally writing the blog for it almost a year later, I can say that we've learned so much more since we did this piece. You can see some of those new skills in our Empire blog too.
Josh and Sydney are life adventurers that love to learn and create. We are exact opposites and enjoy gaining new perspective. Our home is where our varying personalities shine, and we use it to gather our friends and family together.
