“Growth Prediction for 2012 Remodeling Industry”

As the year draws to an end, remodelers can now breathe a sigh of relief to have this sluggish year over with. 2011 may have been a tough year for the remodeling industry but with 2012 just around the corner the forecast calls for growth of 1% to 2% quarter-over-quarter. The remodeling industry took note of Americans spending $116 billion on improvements to owner-occupied units in 2010, down from a peak of $146 billion in 2006. National Association of Home Builders' (NAHB) remodeling forecast expects these expenditures to increase steadily as the general housing market recovers through 2011 and 2012, respectively reaching $119 billion and $131 billion.

"The 'Towel Warmer' that Keeps on Giving"

My husband of almost 35-years has traveled over the world, and during his travels to Europe he’s always enjoyed towel warmers that are a staple in their hotel rooms.

In order to surprise my husband, I had my contractor come in and install the warmer while he was at work. And, was he ever pleasantly surprised! I enjoy the benefits of it too, and I must say, “WOW!!!!" I love it and my husband loves it! Read More
