Critically important for Seniors!

This past weekend was Commencement Exercises here at UVM, the local schools are getting ready to close for the summer, families are getting the kids ready for camp, and it seems as though everyone is planning their vacation. 

Most of our readers are busy with all sorts of family obligations so, for the next couple weeks or so we will be talking to our Senior Friends, actually they are my soul-mate.

More about decks

The other day we asked for a favorite part of a Two-Story Colonial home and the overwhelming favorite was “The Deck.”  I am going to guess that everyone is really anxious to get outside, fire up the grill, and cook some exciting summer food.  All this is fun and exciting, in today’s photograph we are looking at how decks can be built.

Let's look around the living room

The other day we showed you the finished Family Room where there was radiant heat in the floor.  Remember, we showed you one of The Boys coming to check out his new play room.

Well, today you are looking at the floor covering in the living room.  This is DuraCeramic from Congoleum.  We haven’t used this product much but honestly, I am impressed with the beauty and its durability.

DuraCeramic comes with all kinds of features such as:
