Q&A With Clint Harp
What’s an easy DIY project homeowners can tackle to improve their space?
A shelf! Find a cool piece of wood in your garage or in someone else’s scrap pile and make a shelf! With some simple brackets from a home improvement store, you can make a really fun shelf with very little effort.
What’s a common mistake homeowners make when they take on a home improvement project themselves?
Usually it’s underestimating how much time and money it’s going to cost. I’ve done it many times. The best bet is to add 30 percent on top of whatever you’re guessing!
What’s one thing you wish every homeowner knew?
It’s better to spend the money up front and get a job done right than to take shortcuts. And, if you don’t have the money yet, live with what you have until you can afford the real deal.
What are your best small space living hacks?
Put more in the giveaway and trash piles than you do in your house.
What décor items are worth splurging on?
I’m biased, but I would say all furniture. Ask around and the things that get handed down from generation to generation are tables, beds, dressers, benches, and chairs. Spend money on things that last and you will bless generations of people long after you’re gone.
Would you rather upgrade your closet, bathroom or kitchen?
I’d rather upgrade my kitchen because we live in it as a family, but I do need a clean bathroom and an organized closet.
What are your best outdoor décor tips?
If you don’t love doing it or have an eye for it, find someone who does and rely on that person. Curb appeal is so important, and the beauty and functionality of your backyard can add so much to your life. Spend time, effort, and money if you have to, to really make it right … you’ll be glad you did.
Could you live in a tiny home?
By myself? Yes! With a wife and three kids? For a weekend!
How should we care for wooden architectural details in older homes?
Evaluate what you have before making changes. Talk to professionals, look at videos, and be thoughtful before eliminating or changing authentic old details that can’t easily be replaced. And if you do decide to get rid of things, please consider donating them to Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore so someone else can give them a new life.
What is it about crafting wood by hand that is so intriguing/rewarding to you?
When I’m working with wood, I’m tapping into something that’s as old as the planet itself. For me, wood represents where we come from and where we’re headed. It’s real, it’s tangible, and it has so many different uses. I love how it changes as you’re working with it, whether planting, sawing, cutting, sanding or whatever else. I just love nature, and you can’t get more natural than wood!
