New Construction For The First Time Home Buyer

Hardie-Cobble-Stone

From Koby Kepert:
“Most of us have been down this road before… as a first-time home buyer, it seems easy to buy a fixer upper and transform it into your dream home. It seems so easy on all of the HGTV shows we watch, right? Well, the real-life reality is not always like that. Working in this business for so many years now, I can’t tell you how many emails I’ve received from people desperate for help with their “DIY gone wrong” issues. I think that, being a first-time home buyer, you should have some serious home improvement skills before attempting to renovate a fixer upper. This surely can save you some money as long you don’t make any expensive mistakes along the way. But if you don’t have the skills nor the time and energy, buying a newly-built home or having it built for you seems to be the best option…..”

A Beautiful New Paneled Entryway

Entryway RenovationThe entryway is a great candidate for a new year spruce up. As the first space to be seen when walking into a house, the entryway sets a tone for the rest of the house. Unfortunately, it’s a place where shoes, clothes, packages, and mail tend to build up. However, according to Jami Nato, some planning, a weekend’s worth of time and about $85 can fix all of that.
This recently plain entryway was revamped into something quite spectacular. Using a bunch of 1×6 and 1×3 boards and some well-placed hooks, this built-in panel effect was created. Backpacks, hats, scarves and jackets now all will have a home. One great element is the picture ledge on top. It’s a great place to place children’s artwork.

A Perfect Cape Cod Style Renovation


1820s home gets new life with beloved collections, new storage solutions and lots of natural light
HOUZZ.COM: In spite of an extensive renovation, this 1820s petite Cape in Vermont still maintains a petite footprint. “The house is quite small by today’s standards,” says Pi Smith, the project architect. “All of the spaces we designed are working really hard.”
The client had owned the home for 15 years, dreaming of and planning for a kitchen renovation for every one of them. While she waited, she filled her barn with collections in anticipation of the day they would rebuild, storing vintage plumbing fixtures, light fixtures, cabinet hardware and antique tiles, among other things. “Our client has a big interest in all kinds of design and has a really good eye; the project was a wonderful collaboration.”
Between creating storage solutions, squeezing as much functionality out of each inch as possible, letting in natural light, creating outdoor rooms, planning around the client’s beloved collections, this is one smart and dramatic transformation.

Easy Concrete Countertops


In the competitive real estate markets of Dobbs Ferry, Irvington, Hastings-on-Hudson and the rest of the Rivertowns, where up to the minute styling and move-in condition are the cornerstones of a successful sale, can it really be this easy to get the now trendy look and easy durability of concrete kitchen countertops? According to this homeowner, on her great blog, it’s almost as easy as mixing and pouring the concrete. Perhaps having a handy partner helps and also assuming you don’t mind doing it all in your kitchen, since most of us tend to do things twice. The first way the hard, messy way, and the second, the clean, right way. And all of this, supposedly, for not much more than $200. Read more at:
