Welcome to Common Sense At Work!

My name is Sean Sullivan. For the past twenty years I’ve worked a wide variety of jobs ranging from landscaping, construction, landscape design, and more recently project management. However, my passion for home improvement has grown from applying the techniques I’ve learned on the job to my family’s home and yard. With a bit (quite a bit!) of hard work, dedication, and a ton of help from our friends and family, we’ve been able to take our beaten-down home and make it into a beautiful place to live that we are truly proud of.

I started this blog so that I could share my latest learnings, projects, news, techniques, tactics – you name it! – that you can use to help make your life easier. I like to keep things simple. Why make it more complicated if it just takes longer to get the job done? Maybe you’ll see some of my MacGyver techniques from time to time.

Plus, I’ll fill the gap with lots of interesting and amusing stories from my life (well, they are to me anyway!). To be honest, I’ve been wanting to do this for years and my children finally convinced me it was time to start, or to stop dreaming.

I hope your visit proves useful in some way. I’ll try to keep it updated as much as possible.

Thanks for visiting!
