Buy Steve Maxwell a coffee


I create articles and videos that show people how to build, fix, renovate, and improve their homes, properties, gardens and lives. Much of the content I create is free – you can find it on my website,, and on YouTube. 

Your support helps me produce more practical, hands-on content that I hope you’ll find useful. I’m a big believer in self-reliance, and I want you to feel confident that you can take care of your home and, by extension, your family. If I can share my knowledge and encourage you to learn a new skill or start a new do-it-yourself project, that makes me happy.

My home, on beautiful Manitoulin Island in Northern Ontario, is often the inspiration for new article and video ideas. When I’m not writing or working on a video, you can probably find me in my workshop or out in the woods nearby. Your virtual coffees are much appreciated (the currency is USD, by the way). Thanks for stopping by!
