Who Is The Home Know-It-All?
The Home Know-It-All is a self-professed expert on the basics of home improvement, decorating, cleaning, do-it-yourself, gardening, and easy repair projects. She isn’t an actual person (but if she were, wouldn’t she have a stellar house?!). Rather, The Home Know-It-All is the creation of the collective knowledge of the team at Lexicon Consulting, Inc.

Why Create This Blog?
There are a gazillion* sources of information available in print and online about the topics we write about on this site. But over the years, as we’ve researched these topics for our own home projects as well as for the articles, magazines, and books we work on, we have discovered that it’s difficult to find straightforward, hardworking information on specific topics that are of interest to DIY-loving homeowners. And surfing the ’Net to take advantage of all the great resources out there takes hours upon hours—time that could be spent actually working on our homes!
That’s why we came up with this blog. Each day, Monday through Friday, we’ll walk you through the basics of a specific topic related to the home, with links to other sources of information and products available on the web. While you’re here, take advantage of the search option to find past entries on topics you’re interested in. And check out our favorite books and links to other blogs and websites for even more info. Do you have a question you’d like The Home Know-It-All to tackle? Send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll try to find the answer for you.
Happy home remodeling!
