Now I know why I’ve been putting off re-attaching that two foot piece of quarter-round moulding for the last 18 months: Home Fixated just received a “Next-Gen” cordless nailer from Hitachi to review, the NT1865DM.

After squandering the first 50+ years of his life being productive, Peter finally realized having fun is, well, more fun. A former Human Resources junior executive/ chef/ small business owner/ restaurateur/ organic farmer, Peter became handy quickly. Peter's time farming was spent repairing and building implements, greenhouses, storage facilities, and washing stations as well as renovations on the outdated farmhouse. Peter and his lovely wife Joan now share a home they converted into a cozy living space by remodeling an old church. He and Joan also run a used book business in Southwest Colorado, which leaves them almost enough time to ride bikes and ski pretty much every day. Ahhhh, sweet sloth.
