    Improve Your Home’s Efficiency With a Garage Door

While there are a few different ways that you can combat this, one of the most effective is by installing new garage doors.

    Dos and Don’ts of Home Trends

    There are a number of trends in home decoration that you’ve likely seen come and go over the years. Some of them look pretty nice and create something of a timeless look, while others… well, it’s pretty easy to understand why they’re only temporary trends. Like them or hate them, though, following home trends can sometimes have a positive impact on the value of your home if you’re looking to sell. That is, of course, if you strike while the iron is hot.

    Filing a Homeowner’s Insurance Claim

    Nobody wants to have to file a homeowner’s insurance claim. After all, filing a claim means that something has gone horribly wrong at home. Maybe it’s damage from a storm, or a frozen pipe that burst, or some other unexpected problem. Whatever the cause, the damage was severe enough that you need to make a claim on the policy that up until now you’d hoped would never actually have to be used.

    When it comes to real estate, location often tops the list. But finding the right fit can go beyond a scenic setting or preferred school district. It’s the people that truly make a place. There’s something so charming about a small town, where everybody knows your name. Having a tight-knit community adds value to a physical location with an emotional connection among those who live and work there.

    When her son was just one and a half, Emily Riddle felt his play space was in dire need of a face-lift—so she used the One Room Challenge as a catalyst. Riddle owns The Amsden—a Parisian-style cafe in an 1890 building in Versailles, Kentucky—and is a designer and lifestyle blogger at her website, Gathered Living. She had one main goal for this room in their 1915 farmhouse, which previously had white walls, white trim, and a hodgepodge of decor: “I really wanted to go all out,” she says. “He was little but getting to the point where he needed a dedicated space for all his stuff—a spot that would contain all his toys but also be safe for him where he could play in there without us having to monitor everything!”

    When it comes to family heirlooms, you might picture a grandfather clock or a full set of china. But not all heirlooms are fit for the parlor—especially these ones, which have gone to, well, seed. While there is no set definition, it’s generally agreed that heirloom plants are old varieties that have been passed down generationally via seeds and have been cultivated for at least fifty years.

    When distance/remote/virtual learning became the norm during the early days of the pandemic, homeschooling found a wider audience. Rather than enroll kids in public or private institutions, many parents opted to take education in house. If homeschooling is something you are considering, lead by example and do a little how-to homework before getting started.
