Long story short: we enjoy our privacy just as much as you


While we strive to be as accurate and effective as possible, North Country Nest is for your entertainment purposes only. We are renovating our home, mostly by ourselves, on a pretty tight budget. If you do happen to try out any projects, tips or tricks we mention, it should be noted that we are not professionals and our advice should not be taken as such. You are at your own risk, especially when you’re testing out that new power saw. Friends, be careful. Please know that we are first-timers at a lot of these things too, use the right safety gear, follow all the guidelines and get help from the professionals if you don’t understand how to do something.

Long story short: don’t be stupid.
