Don't Throw Out The Old Tub, Just Refinish It

Let's face it: the two places most thought of when people consider when buying a house are the kitchen and the bathrooms. As such, those who are thinking in terms of selling their most expensive investment either now or in the future, are also thinking in terms of their return on investment (ROI).

There's only one problem: if it's an old-modeled bathroom, chances are there's a bathtub that has seen its heyday, so to speak. Gone are its original shine and luster. Perhaps, a gigantic and unsightly rust spot also often remains on the tub's surface.

However, today, thanks to the dynamics of the Internet, the days of throwing out the bathtub to replace with something more stylish, and costly, are gone forever. Quality specialty online web sites, such as CarolinasTubDoctor.Com, now serve the Carolinas and parts of Georgia and Tennessee.

Making it all the simpler and less costly to give your bathroom a new lease on life, a tub refinishing adds lasting value to your ROI; …

I Want to Make an Outdoor Shower.

Image
Bathing outside your home is not common for people living in the city. But for those who are living in the rural area, bathing outside is not new to them. Having an outdoor bath is a daring move. Not a lot of people are open to the idea of taking a shower outside its conventional spot, but there are some who find the concept refreshing and not at all unusual.




Bring your bath outside the confines of your bathroom's walls with outdoor showers. With a little careful planning and basic plumbing know-how, you can create a refreshing retreat. Look for fixtures with a wood finish. It would creat an earthly feel, making it instantly blend with the greens of the outdoors. Like conventional showers, features like hot or cold water mixers would definitely gives you a pleasant bathing experience.

What kind of color do you like for a guitar?

Image
We have two acoustic guitars at home. My eldest son bought it for himself and for his younger brother. The eldest likes brown like a mahogany guitar, so he has brown guitar while the youngest, his guitar is a combination of green and black guitar. I saw shiny black guitars at the guitar store at the mall. I told my son that black is beautiful. He agreed to me, but he has a guitar already. If he buys a new one, he said, he might choose the black guitar. Yeah, that is cool then.


Below was the black guitar I found at the mall.

Keep your basement safe.

Some houses have basement like my Aunt’s house. It was her daughter’s idea to put a basement. When you want to put basement in your house, you should be aware of disadvantages/advantages of having a basement in the house. You should have strong basement window security that can be safe from the intruders for this is near to the ground and easy to manipulate for the intruders. It must be good if the window is visible from the outside. You should also use a shatterproof glass window and not a weak glass that intruders can easily shatter.




Install a heavy security bars made of iron or steel for this are a great protection against intruders. However, you should install these bars in such a way that firefighters can still use the window in case of an emergency. It is also a good idea to put plants in front of the basement window, furniture or anything that can make noise whenever there is an intruder trying to enter the basement. Use a safety and reliable set of locks and keys and place it…

Window Type Air-conditioner

Image
Yesterday, while I was inside at the grocery store, I remember to look for a window type air conditioner. So, when I was done at the grocery department, I headed to the second floor where the store appliance is located. The store was not busy when I got there. The salesmen were just occupied talking with each other, but as soon as I was in front of the appliance they were handling, they entertained me. I was just asking for the prices. The prices depend on the sizes of the unit you want to purchase.





The salesman was asking what brand of air conditioner I like. I told him any brand as long as when there is a problem, the materials are always available. He asked me what the size of the room is, so he can figure it out the size of the unit that will fit to the room for cooling purposes, and he also asked if I know the measurement of our window, etc., etc. Ha ha.. Since, I have no idea the exact measurement of the room, and the window size, I just made a simple description by pointing t…

4 Tips for Reviving an Old, Neglected Family Business

When investing in an old family business, there is a certain amount of neglect to be expected. Buildings can get into bad shape quickly when they are abandoned or run down. Since most of these businesses have not seen regular upkeep, a few different commercial services will be necessary to get the business into good working condition for the grand re-opening.

Structure and Roof Inspections

If a buyer or inheritor is concerned about a property, inspections of the roof and skeleton of the building will help to establish the shape of the building physically. If a roof is leaking, immediate repair is required before the leaking water can damage the rest of the structure. Wood floors can rot quickly with continuous water exposure. The stability of the foundation, floors, and walls is important as well. A building should not be restored until the structure is found to be safe and sound.

Radon is gas that can become deadly; this is especially true for those who…
