Ah, the library. A bit of a lost art, if you ask us. Gone are the days when we could hide away in expansive wooden rooms, leafing through hard bound, first-editions of all of the classics in literature. These days you’re more likely to find ipad rooms, full of the latest technology. Or perhaps books that read themselves to you and act themselves out in the process.Read More

Land is a funny thing. It can really dictate the location of your home. You can fall in love with natural features, a neighborhood, panoramic views or proximity to something important in your life. Sometimes the quality of the terrain is a tradeoff for the multitude of benefits that the home will ultimately offer to you and your loved ones. Don’t let that deter you.Read More
Home. House. Casa. Abode. Digs. All synonyms for the place where you kick off your shoes after a long day, put your feet up and exhale. It doesn’t matter if you’re doing it by yourself or with a clan of twenty, it’s home. Home is a very symbolic word, regardless of your heritage or culture. Across the modern western hemisphere, the word “home” is perceived in hundreds of different ways, keeping in mind different factors of both choice and your economy.Read More

There’s no way around it, technology is slowly taking over the world. Now we’re not talking about robots and aliens from outer space, far from it. We’re talking about technologies that are massively improving day-to-day experiences from homeowners. The Disney Channel produced a movie in the nineties called Smart House, in which a robot maid slowly did take over the house and all of its pre-programmed technology. While we’re nowhere near that level, there are definitely up and coming technologies which are making life much easier.Read More
It used to be, ‘the bigger the better.’ That pertained to wallets, to actions, to spending and to lifestyles. In fact, this trend is probably the most cyclical of all time. You can bet your bottom dollar that at some point, this trend will return and our wallets will groan all over again. But for now, we can breathe a little bit easier and watch as a very interesting trend unfolds in the home renovation industry. That trend, is the tiny house trend.Read More
It doesn’t matter what the weather, or time of year, home renovations can be some of the most stressful times of your life. While there’s not necessarily a science to it, it makes sense when you look at some examples that go into the equation: You’re entrusting your home to someone who is most likely a complete stranger, you’re opening your wallet to invest in something which may or may not bring value to your home and you’re disrupting your daily routine to incorporate an element of surprise and unknown.Read More
