Outside Relaxation - Worry Free

Recently, we asked our talented friends at FixThisBuildThat to give our new HCR-X coated exterior screws a try.  In the midst of a deck rehab it was perfect timing to build an outdoor piece of furniture to enjoy the remainder of fall.

Relax, this modern, deep-set sofa is built with cedar and SPAX HCR-X corrosion resistant fasteners ensuring it will withstand the elements.

Are You Up For A Challenge?

So just to give you the low down, participants are given a basic plan (this season a farm table) created by our favorite sisters, Shanty2Chic and only 2 weeks to put their personal spin on their completed creations.

Why Are Code Approved Fasteners Not All Created Equal?

We're thrilled that this year our PowerLag® structural fasteners were given ICC (International Code Council) approval for your job sites!

While we know that there are other brands out there that claim they have approval too and why, you might ask, is this special, different and worth celebrating? Well we thought it was cool and different enough to grab our contractor friend, Mark Clement (who happens to be one of our biggest fanatics), and make a video to explain exactly why you'll need these for your upcoming projects.

Small Closet, Big Organization

Like us, do you drool over those fabulous, decked out workshops you see on Houzz or Instagram? Do you have space envy when you happen to see a garage that's actually used to store vehicles in?

Well if you struggle with finding an extra drawer or corner in the basement to keep some of your beloved tools and supplies maybe this will help. Engineer Your Space is expert in utilizing and organizing every nook and cranny in your space, no matter how big or small!

Take the latest closet door organizer for instance...who would have thought using the back of the closet door to have all your favorite DIY gems this handy? (And using SPAX to build too!)

HCR-X: Corrosion's Worst Enemy

We've been talking all summer about the amazing benefits of our newly-launched T-STAR plus Exterior/Deck screw with HCR-X Coating. It's now time to stop talking and SHOW you all the awesomeness that awaits when we set Mark from MyFixitUpLife loose to give these gems a try!

Daily we're asked multiple questions about our screws. What makes SPAX different? Why are they better? Are they more expensive? And then people take them for a test drive and ask "WHERE CAN I GET THESE?!"

Summer Project Overload? Better Stay Organized!

It's summertime, or for a lot of you out there it's otherwise known as "Project Season" and it's go time!

Checking off that summer to-do list requires some good ole organization in your workshop or garage to keep your projects moving and also to keep your sanity. One of the best examples of workshop envy is the space of Sawdust Girl  (if you're not following her yet, you should!).

Building vertical drawers in your cabinets are a brilliant way to keep track and store away all of your DIY inventory. 

We love these custom made vertical drawers...just perfect size to store all the SPAX on hand!

But don't just take it from us, take it from Mark and Theresa Clements, licensed contractors and hosts of MyFixitUpLife, who've seen it all in their years of DIY'ing all over tarnation!

Never Lose Your Tape Measurer Again! - DIY Tape Measurer Holder

By contributing partner and guest blogger, Isabelle LaRue

I always seem to misplace my measuring tape so I decided to give it its very own dedicated storage spot in my mini-workshop. It took only minutes to make using a piece of metal from an aluminum flashing sheet.
