The weeks ahead are unpredictable, but with the many school closures and businesses encouraging teams to work from home, we all know that cabin fever is imminent. So, we have a few ideas to keep you (and your littles!) occupied, while remaining safely at home.

General Contractor, Ben Becker says, "We try to incorporate building opportunities whenever we can. Whether its a pre-fab[ricated] bird house from Amazon, or raised vegetable beds, the kids are always engaged, and it provides an opportunity to expose them to my craft." He adds, "Be sure that any tools you are using have a trigger lock to prevent any accidents."
