EberhardHello and Welcome to Mel’s Sandbox- a home improvement heaven. I’m Eberhard Service and Mel’s Sandbox is named after my daughter Mel who spent many hours each day building houses in her sand box. She showed me that a home requires great love, care and dedication.

As a homeowner I know that each day something new springs up that needs to be repaired or replaced or redone. This is why I believe all home owners must know the basics to home repairs and as your partner in home improvement, I love sharing my ideas with you. Whether you’re looking for advice on how to do a painting job or an easy DIY you can do at home, there’s something on this site for everyone. Each post is carefully created to allow readers to understand how to complete a repair or renovation task on their own. I often give out ideas for DIYs and other changes you can make around the house. Something as easy as painting a stool a different color can completely change the way a room looks. The key is to keep experimenting and trying out new things. A house is always a work in progress. The journey towards giving your house a complete makeover may seem difficult, but with Mel’s Sandbox you can get to your goals with ease. Need advice on an impending repair, or want to share the story of a job well done? Write to me- I love hearing from others who take home improvement as seriously as I do.
