Apples to Apples? How to compare multiple Remodeling Proposals

08-22-2012 08:34 PM by Mike Blank, CGR CAPS | 16 comments »

Most Importantly… Do You Trust This Person? When it comes down to it, the most important thing to check is your own instincts. How do you feel about this contractor working on what is probably your single largest investment – your home? Do you trust this person inside your home and around your children? Can you communicate well with this person about the project? Are they ‘in tune’ to your needs? Are they an expert and experienced in the type of project you are envisioning? Don’t throw awa...

Tile Backsplash - What they Don't Tell you #1: They don't tell you how to raise all the electric switches

06-23-2012 03:23 PM by MoshupTrail | 10 comments »

You’ll need at least two bags for all those extra switches you’ve just installed. Also, the kind I tried were a little to...

I’m sure we can all have a good go at creating a modern interior with modern styles and trends. We can all buy a bunch of materials and tools and get to work on a brand new untouched space and finish with a masterpiece. However, what if you’re looking to create a more vintage look rather than a modern one? How can you create that antique look yourself? I did a bit of research online in an attempt to figure out for myself and for this blog just how can I create a vintage look for my interior o...
