The above photo was taken when we did a walk through on the house. At the time, this was the only bathroom in the house and it certainly was not in the worst condition I’ve ever seen, thankfully, but we definitely knew we wanted to update it eventually.
Showerheads, toilets, and faucets have all become more water-efficient in recent years, thanks to the Environmental Protection Agency’s voluntary WaterSense program, which labels products that are 20 percent more efficient than federal standards. Our tests have found many WaterSense winners, including low-flow showerheads that deliver a satisfying pulse while meeting the flow rate of 2.5 gallons per minute. You can even have a rain showerhead these days that’s low-flow,” says Petrie.

Since I live in Florida, I don’t have to worry about freeze very often – but this week I did. It has been cold, very, very cold. Excellent advice! Our daughter bought a new house and in the garage of the house was this cabinet. She was going to throw it away, but I took it and we hung it above our kitchen counter. Sunshine, Ray, and Louie finished up the booth and cabinets (trim pieces, crown molding, baseboards, and knobs and pulls), installed the under-cabinet lights, booth light fixture, dimmer switches, and all the appliances.

As a rule of thumb, artwork should be placed no more than five to nine inches above a sofa and no more than seven to ten inches above a table. The placement of your artwork should also relate to its surroundings. As a guideline for proportion, one or more pictures (including mirrors or other wall décor) should cover about 2/3 of the wall space above the piece of furniture. For example, if you have a 6 foot wide sofa, plan on a single picture or an arrangement that is about 4 feet wide and centered above the sofa.

In this poor housing market, Quonset huts are popular with new homeowners as well as with retirees looking for an affordable way to move to a warmer climate. A quonset hut is a type of arch-style, semicylindrical steel building that was used in World War II for equipment storage. Since then, Quonset huts have been used for inexpensive equipment storage in commercial and agricultural settings. In today’s housing market, Quonset-hut homes are a popular option, mainly because they’re less expensive to build or buy than other types of homes and can be built in less time.
If your space does not have an architectural feature to serve as a focal point, you can create one by using, for example, a dramatic (in scale, style, color, design) piece of furniture, a sculpture, a striking painting on an easel or a picture hung on a wall.
