About The Project Garage

Do you remember when being handy was the norm?

We do. We have memories of uncles with workshops filled with tools, plans, and ongoing projects. Grandfathers who had barns packed with mysterious farm machinery and rows of aging cars. We remember aunts who could pickle just about anything, whip up delicious jams, and quilt masterpieces. Where did all of this happen? It took place in workshops, rooms, nooks, basements, carports, barns, and outbuildings. It happened in garages. Project Garages.

What happened in these spaces was the passing down of valuable lessons from one generation to the next, empowering each new group to believe in their ability to repair, build, and create with their own hands. It was an integral part of life's education.

However, over time, families have grown more disconnected, and these essential lessons aren't being taught as they once were. Perhaps you don't have a relative, or skilled friend to teach you those much-needed skills. That's precisely why we're here.

About the Founder


Stephanie has been a handful right from the start. A true East Coaster, her natural curiosity about how things worked often led her to be a bit of a troublemaker during her childhood. She frequently dismantled items but struggled to reassemble them. Fortunately, she had patient relatives who channeled her energy and instilled in her the belief that no task was insurmountable with determination, a basic understanding of how things worked, and a desire to be self-reliant.

As the years passed, Stephanie's passion for hands-on learning and self-sufficiency only grew. Now, through The Project Garage she aims to create a supportive environment for anyone with a similar desire to improve their handy skills. Stephanie's vision is to offer the kind of guidance and support she received from her family to help others gain practical skills and knowledge.

Today, Stephanie still resides on the East Coast, where she continues to take things apart, but she has significantly improved her ability to put them back together.
