he warmer months present an excellent opportunity to get outdoors and spruce up your home’s exterior. But if you have limited time and resources, it’s important to prioritize the focus of your efforts.

Garage Door National data from the 2018 Cost vs. Value Report shows that the project that delivers the highest return on investment is a new upscale garage door.

Installing a fireplace or woodstove in your home is much more than just adding another source of heat; it also adds warmth to the décor. Creating a cozy atmosphere is easy with one of the many different types of heating units available on the market. Here are some tips to help you to figure which kind will best suit your needs. Wood stoves There’s nothing more enjoyable than a crackling fire. Today’s slow burning stoves are extremely efficient and emit far fewer particles to pollute the atmosphere than the previous generation of models. However, the fact remains that some towns are now banning the use of wood burning stoves and fireplaces, so be sure to check with your municipality before buying and installing either one.

Pellet heating This type of heating uses compacted sawdust or other biomass materials that are less polluting than ordinary wood. Like wood stoves, pellet stoves produce plenty of heat, but

they do require some maintenance. Gas fireplaces Whether they use natural gas or propane, these devices are affordable as well as attractive and efficient. They require very little maintenance and, when equipped with batteries, can continue working even during a power failure. What’s more, heat production is easy to control. Ethanol fireplaces These units beautify the home, are affordable, and

the visual effect of the flames is realistic. However, the room where the device is installed has to be ventilated, as they do emit carbon dioxide. They are not an efficient source of heat, either. Electric units They are eco-friendly and extremely easy to install; just plug them into a regular electrical outlet. However, while an electric fireplace is ideal for creating atmosphere, it emits very little heat.

Major Home Renovations That Are Worth the Effort B

uilding a new home? Overhauling an existing one? Here are three renovation ideas that will add beauty and value.

Expand Your Living Space

Jim Kruger / Steve Herder Landmark Photography / Herder Photography

Don’t let that basement sit unfinished and unused. Substantially expand your home’s livable areas by turning your attention to the bottom floor. Finishing a basement is an involved project, potentially requiring electrical and plumbing work, insulation, drywall and more -- but the end result is worth the effort and expense. What’s more, some of the less technical aspects of this renovation could even be DIY-ed. Before getting started, consider what type of space would most benefit your household long-term. You may even be able to recoup some cost of the investment. For example, turning your basement into an athome fitness center means ditching the costly gym membership. Want to reduce time and money on your commute? Your basement may just make an ideal home office. Add a Focal Point Is your interior design in need of a little something? The right eyecatching elements can make a room pop while adding vitality to your living spaces. A fireplace, for example, adds ambiance and comfort while also creating a natural gathering space. What’s more, new models pair the charm of a traditional open-front fireplace with the design flexibility of gas models. The Phoenix TrueView from Heat & Glo offers the convenience of gas without the

glass, giving homeowners an unobscured view of the flames against the traditional brick or fade-resistant reflective black glass liner. An optional Bluetooth speaker system allows one to hear the fire as well as see it -- making it a focal point for the ears as well as the eyes. Boost the Backyard

If you find that your household spends very little time in the backyard, figure out why. Is there a lack of shade? Are there not enough places to sit? Take a poll so you can diagnose the problem and take steps to correct it. Consider also how to make this space usable for a larger portion of the year, such as adding a

fire pit or an enclosed, heated patio. Lastly, consider aesthetics. A bit of landscaping can make your backyard as visually appealing as your home’s interiors. This season, consider the renovations that will go furthest to boost your home’s livability, beauty and value.(StatePoint)

Overlooked Items For Your Family’s Emergency Supply Kit


uilding a new home? Overhauling an existing one? Here are three renovation ideas that will add beauty and value.

Don’t let that basement sit unfinIf you prepped an emergency supply kit for your family, you most likely have the basics covered: batteries, first aid and non-perishable foods. Here are five often overlooked items that can help keep your family safe, comfortable and informed should the unexpected occur. • Water filter. Tap water is not always safe to drink in emergency situations. While you should have a store of bottled water on hand, you can be extra safe with a highquality water filter. Consider a portable model, so that if you have to relocate, you can have access to clean water on-the-go. • Reliable Technology. In an emergency, you may require technology that doesn’t need information from cell towers and doesn’t have to be recharged constantly, such as Casio’s PROTREK PRG600Y-1, which features an altimeter, compass and barometer (great for staying aware of changes in temperature or air pressure). It also delivers this information hands-free, which can be useful any time, but extra valuable in an emergency. Additionally, it features Casio’s Tough Solar Power, allowing the watch to be charged in low or fluorescent light. After a fullcharge and without further exposure to light, the timepiece has a battery life of approximately seven months, and a special power save feature conserves energy by enabling the timepiece to power

Africa Studio/ down when not exposed to light. • Back-up Generator. If the power goes out, a generator can keep you up and running, helping you protect against extreme weather conditions and keeping food from spoiling. Just be sure to operate your generator properly, following all the manufacturer’s safety measures. Never run a generator indoors or in an enclosed space.

• Something to do. The truth is, emergency situations often yield a lot of downtime. Don’t be caught with nothing to do. Find forms of entertainment that can be enjoyed without power, such as books, board games, musical instruments, pen and paper. • Medication. Beyond first aid, your family likely has other medical considerations for which to prepare. Always have a several days

supply of prescription medication for each member of the household. For those who wear glasses, keeping an extra pair handy will keep you seeing straight should your main pair break in an emergency. To be truly prepared for any emergency, be sure your prep kit goes beyond the standard checklist to include these often-overlooked items. (StatePoint)

Yesterday’s Factories Could Be Tomorrow’s Offices and Homes


o counter generic new construction projects, many cities and towns are converting older structures into vibrant tech offices, loft-style residences and even art institutions -- a process known as “adaptive reuse.”

As midcentury facilities designed for oncehumming industries are finding new leases on life, cities are retaining their architectural character. What’s more, adaptive reuse can be an eco-friendly option. By avoiding demolition of existing structures, architects reduce the amount of waste generated by the project. In many cases, it’s also more time-efficient than demolition and reconstruction, both in terms of the physical construction and the permitting processes involved. Striking examples of such renovation projects include the Pinterest headquarters in San Francisco. Designed by the team of IwamotoScott Architecture with Brereton Architects, the space is in the former John Deere factory in the city’s South of Market district. Pinterest’s mission of connecting people through shared interests is echoed in the design of the renovated four-story factory building,

whose main feature is a central staircase that knits its floors together. An atrium in the former factory was expanded through to the ground floor, turning the stairs into a light well that illuminates the once-gloomy first level.

Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MassMoCA), following a master plan by Simeon Bruner of Bruner/Cott & Associates, David Childs of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, Frank Gehry, and Robert Venturi.

Just a few blocks down the street sits the headquarters of Airbnb, the tech company that connects homeowners with visitors who need to rent a home. Airbnb occupies another former factory that has been converted into tech offices by Gensler, with a subsequent expansion by WRNS Studio. A towering lobby atrium showcases the company’s buzzing activity through windows that offer glimpses of open offices and conference rooms designed to mimic some of Airbnb’s most popular online rental listings.

In Washington, DC, several former warehouses have been converted into coworking spaces for WeWork, and the Art Deco Hecht warehouse stacks luxury lofts atop a NikeTown.

In North Adams, Massachusetts, a former textile printing plant of more than 25 buildings has become a cultural center and home of the

To learn more about how adaptive reuse is revitalizing communities nationwide, visit As more local CEOs and decision-makers recognize that adaptive reuse often retains more valuable character than generic new construction can hope to create, more architects will be called in to preserve and renovate these aging relics.
