A Bit About Stonehaven

Stonehaven Life is an online project of MindsEye Productions (sounds very corporate, doesn’t it?), a husband-and-wife partnership in New Brunswick, Canada. We call our house "Stonehaven" because it’s got an awesome foundation of huge granite blocks, and a lot of rocks in the vegetable garden.

My professional and freelance career has cut a swath across several fields, contributing to my unique mix of interests & experiences – musician… retail manager… video producer/editor… beekeeper… CAD designer… woodworker… do-it-yourselfer…

Looking in the rear-view mirror, the common themes that seem to tie my life experiences together are the core values that I believe are integral to accomplishing goals that truly stand up to the test of time:

  • Take the time to plan believe me, haste really does make waste
  • Be a team playerwhether leading or following, be an asset – not a liability
  • Details matterif it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing your best

That said…

Stonehaven Life – DIY@home is about sharing the collective knowledge and experience we’ve all gained along the way, and investing what we’ve learned into our most treasured retreats – our homes.

Welcome to Stonehaven Life.
