A wooden planter is a great way of creating a bed to grow plants and vegetables in if you are short of space. Your wooden planter can be adapted to fit any corner, depending on your needs. And as it's made of pressure-treated timber it can be stained in any color and won't rot.
Mosquito trap - No more mosquitos!! Cut the top off a 2 liter bottle. Invert the cone and place it inside the bottle. Glue the two pieces together. Add 1 tsp yeast and 1/2 cup sugar to some luke warm water, and pour the mixture into the bottle. Mosquitoes are attracted to the carbon dioxide that you exhale. The yeast feeds off the sugar and emits the same gas, so the mosquito enters the bottle, thinking she will find food there. FLIES LOVE THIS!!! Have caught 1000's of flies!!
You want pancakes when you camp... But it's messy, you have to take milk and eggs... What if you pre-made it before you left and stored them in bags. Freeze it, pack it, and just cut the tip off when you are ready to cook. Easy clean up. Great idea for Amanda's and my next camping excursion. We're always looking for good food ideas :)

No space inside? Create a mudroom in the garage using bookcases on top of storage benches - one cubby for each family member...also great for hockey gear! !!

amazing treehouse, step by step. very cool but I think I would make the ladder on the interior... or possibly not have a ground floor at all, it kinda takes away from the whole "being up in a tree" experience. :] Would it be socially unacceptable for a 20 something woman to build a tree house... for herself?
