The same benchmade quality and custom options they are known for, but with a Euro-modern edge for those that are looking for minimalist styling.

How Can You Add Value to Your Home?


Home Value

An interesting article "Ways to Increase Your Home's Value" came to our attention so we thought we would pass it along.  Can't miss ideas on repairs, curb appeal and more.

Indications Our Economy is Improving


Economic Highlights for the Week Ending March 11, 2011

Jill Bright, Sales Representative, Chicago Title Insurance Co. - Scottsdale Office - jill.bright@ctt.com  


MONDAY, March 7th 

Consumer credit outstanding grew for the fourth consecutive month, rising by $5.0 billion in January compared with market expectations for a $3.3 billion increase. Revolving credit balances fell by $4.2 billion during the month as credit in the non-revolving category surged $9.2 billion. Despite increasing over the past several months, households are still deleveraging albeit at a slower pace than before as evidenced by a smaller debt-to-income ratio.

Green Living:  What to Recycle
By Carla Hill - March 3, 2011
It can be a little confusing. Do I recycle this carton, but not that box? Do I need to rinse this out before I toss it? How does one know what is acceptable for recycling and what isn't? Here is a very rudimentary cheat sheet for you to use!

Frozen No More - Time to Trim
By Tom Hulsebos - Desert Showcase Landscaping - www.desertshowcase.net


Desert Showcase LandscapingThe last possible chance for frost has arrived.  Plants and trees that braved the chill can finally be trimmed of their frozen boughs.    Determine the amount of branch to trim with this easy assessment.  Gently bend the branch back.  Sections that break off are damaged and can't be saved.  The point at which the branch bends but doesn't break is the point at which the branch is still alive.  Trim at this point.  If you don't see any new re-growth by April 15th, there's a chance the plant will need to be replaced.

Now is also a great time to fertilize your bushes and trees.  I recommend SuperThrive (http://www.superthrive.com) as the fertilizer of choice.  SuperThrive can be found in the landscaping section of any home improvement store. 
Finally, check your irrigation drippers and ready them for spring growth.

Featured Home Project 
Kleinschmidt After 1The Kleinschmidts were living with a dated design in their master bathroom a lot longer than they had planned.  Original builder series oak cabinets, cultured marble and brass finishes brought a lackluster aura to the living space.  In addition, the location of the linen cabinet so close to the door opening eliminated much of its functionality.

Beautiful travertine floor in shades of off-white, gray and brown, Diamond Cherry Chocolate vanity cabinets with bunt feet, an off-white, slight-sparkle Silestone countertop and a rich faux travertine porcelain for the walls completed the new design. 
After removing the original linen cabinet and widening the doorway, we removed the bathtub and shower combo and replaced it with a new larger shower and dressing area.
The shower and wall tile were cut into 6"x18" strips and run in a subway pattern vertically around the room. A "picture frame" design added interested to the shower floor.
