Afford New Furniture

  • Financing:
    For many people financing is the way to go. Most of the time you don’t have to put any money down which is a great plus. Financing consists of you making monthly payments until your furniture is paid off. The keys to this plan are that you can get your furniture up front, and monthly payments are easier then dropping a lump sum of money, especially because you just spent a lot of money buying your new home. This is also a good way to build credit. The downside is that you have to be approved for financing and sometimes interest rates on financing furniture can be high. Financing is a great way to afford furniture by making a

Start of a Renovation Story

The first house we looked at was a foreclosure on an acre of land. Can you say DREAM PROJECT?? After walking through it, we (more Chris than me) realized that it was more than we could take on right now. Realistically, pastoring a new church, working full time, being a mom to 3 kids, coaching two soccer teams, and doing interior design side jobs made our cup runneth ova. Sometimes too much. So we scratched a HUGE project like that off our list. (Insert ice-cream and Hallmark movies here.)

This process quickly turned into a journey toward health for our family. We had to come to terms that even though we wanted LOTS and LOTS of projects, we needed to … Read the rest

Effective Inserts

Curb inlets aren’t designed for pollutant and sediment capture. As such, retrofitting the can substantially improve the inlets performance. Inserts can boost their efficiency. They can remove sediment, debris, trash, grease and oil. One of the simplest retrofit options are hooded outlets that capture floatable materials and prevent them from entering the storm drain system.

Filters are one of the varieties of inserts that exist for effectively filtering runoff. The filter fabric will remove pollutants as storm water flows into the system.

Deck Post Caps

Vinyl

Every material requires its own solution when it comes to keeping deck post caps secured to their place. Vinyl, for instance, benefits from being secured with a specific PVC glue. Why use this adhesive? Well, not only does it work well, but it will also stand up to the elements. This, as you have probably already seen, is one of the most important aspects of any adhesive you use in an outdoor setting. Rain, wind, and hail do not represent particularly pleasant precipitation under the best of circumstances, but they can play absolute havoc with your outdoor construction projects. Brush on some PVC glue and your vinyl should stay in place.

Laundry Room Organization

Foldable Drying Rack

Air drying delicate items is an ongoing challenge. Improve laundry room organization with a foldable drying rack that folds up and out of the way when you’re not using it.

Another reason is that people are starting to notice the adverse effects of climate change and are feeling the need to help keep the planet healthy. The DIY Power System was conceptualized because of the first two reasons and because of this third one, having a contractor install a green power generator in your house can lead to large labor costs.

Much has been said about the effectiveness of such systems when it comes to providing all the power needed by a typical home. Naysayers say that such systems … Read the rest
