Celebrating 50 Years of Earth Day!

Did you know that April 22nd marks the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day?  As we adapt to the restrictions of social distancing, one thing we can celebrate is our shrinking carbon footprint. During this newfound journey, we are here to serve our clients today and tomorrow building energy-efficient homes designed to soak in natural light and ventilation. Modular construction maximizes the use of building materials and utilizes waste to energy practices which means far less waste in landfills.  A tighter building envelope combined with the insulation package we include in each home means greater energy efficiency and savings for the homeowner. Our homes are better for the families living in them and for our environment. What are some easy ways to reduce that carbon footprint even more?  Continue to reduce and consolidate trips to the store.

Blueprint for Domestic Bliss - Organize Your Life

Blueprint for Domestic Bliss
Sharing a home, especially with a member of the opposite sex, presents its own unique challenges. Sometimes a woman isn't too fond of her man's belongings, believing they clash with the decorations or represent a bygone era of his life (usually before he met her) that he ought to forget about already.

For their part, men can sometimes feel overtaken by a woman's need to pull the gender card and flex her interior designing muscle in their home. Along with the rest of their belongings, men need a place for their moose and deer heads, tools, sports equipment, drum set, and remnants of the bachelor/frat era they might not wish to part with. These items need not be relegated to a dark, dank corner of the basement or garage.
End the gender wars and establish space for both of you with a well-plotted home design. Are you a woman trying to accommodate your man's collection of tools or outdoor equipment? Men, do you sometimes shake your heads in disbelief at the sheer volume of shoes, purses, hair products and other girlie items your women have accumulated?
