I am working on a completely new site for all the how-to articles that will be more user friendly, have more DIY articles, and have much more content. Duae Manus will remain as our day-to-day journal of DIY adventure.
Creating the new site is a daunting task, and in order to get it up and running in a timely fashion, there will be few new posts on Duae Manus. Stay tuned for further announcements!

About Duae Manus
What does Duae Manus mean? It is Latin for "Two Hands." This is a blog about our adventures in remodeling, renovating, building, and repairing our home. This is a blog from DIYers (Do-It-Yourselfers) for DIYers. We are not professional handymen, contractors or mechanics.
Duae Manus will follow the DIY trials and tribulations we face daily. Hopefully you will find it enjoyable to read and maybe even helpful in your own DIY quest.
Who's Behind Duae Manus?
Mostly it is me, the DIYer, but my wife, the DIYerette also directly and indirectly contributes to this blog.
We are simple people with simple tastes. Perhaps it is our mellow personality, combined with a love of creation, that lends us to the do-it-yourself culture.
The projects and adventures you will find on Duae Manus reflect the three reasons we do it ourselves: we can, it saves us lots of money and there is great personal satisfaction in doing it yourself.
