Winter weather can be relentless. Ice, snow, and sleet in their many forms mean homeowners can find themselves homebound. Outlined below are ten easy steps that can help your family make it through a winter snow-in. 1. Keep warm: Temperatures can drop

Water: We can survive on limited food, but we and our pets must have water. Have bottled or jugged water on hand
in the case of emergency. 3. Non-perishable food: If you go without electricity, you may find yourself being unable to store food. Stock up on non-perishables before a big storm. And then buy plenty of fruits and vegetables that can keep without refrigeration. 4. Crank radio: You may need to listen to

6. Sidewalks: Be sure to have a snow shovel and a bag of sand on hand before any big storm. You'll need to clear your driveway as well as sand your walkways. There is nothing worse than taking a spill on ice. 7. Candles and lighter/matches: If lights are out, you'll still need candles or a flashlight to find your (con’t. on page 5)

Green living: Alternatives to bottled water By Carla Hill RealtyTimes.com
The bottled water craze took hold over a decade ago, and since its start, consumption has skyrocketed. According to the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), "More than half of all Americans drink bottled water; about a third of the public consumes it regularly. Sales have tripled in the past 10 years,
to about $4 billion a year." However, from misuse of water mining rights, to concerns over water quality and plastic safety, this inspired idea is beginning to wane in the minds of many critics. If you and your household are consumers of bottled water, consider these facts that recent studies have brought to light. They just may help make your home a little greener.
of America's top-selling brands barely had passing grades: 1. Pure Life Purified Water (Nestle), EWG grade = B 2. Arrowhead Mountain Spring Water (Nestle), EWG grade = C 3. Aquafina Purified Drinking Water (Pepsi), EWG grade = D 4. Dasani Purified Water (Coca-Cola), EWG grade = D 5. Deer Park Natural
First, the quality of bottled water has been brought under scrutiny. According to the Environmental Working Group's senior vice-president, Jane Houlihan, bottled water companies are hiding information that would shock many consumers. When tested in comparison to bottled waters, the EWG found that "filtered tap water received the best grade (an A.") According to Yahoo!, 10

Water (con’t. from page 6)
today's economy, bottled water can be as much as 1,900 times more expensive than tap water. It seems as if quality filtered water and it's inherent benefits have been confused for bottled water. Tap water of local municipalities is under strict government regulation. They regularly test for many harmful contaminants. Yet, according to the NRDC, "The FDA's rules completely exempt 60-70 percent of the bottled water sold in the United States from the agency's bottled water standards, because FDA says its rules do not apply to water packaged and sold within the same state. Nearly 40 states say they do regulate such waters (generally with few or no resources
BARRY HURLEY 833-6820 290-1372 www.barryhurley.com
dedicated to policing this); therefore, about one out of five states do not. " In a NRDC test, 1/3 of bottled waters contained "significant contamination." What does this mean? That is "levels of chemical or bacterial contaminants exceeding those allowed under a state or industry standard or guideline." Many of these contaminants are known cancer causing agents. And if that weren't bad enough, bottled water use consumes a large amount of oil simply in it's packaging. Additionally, plastic bottles take 1,000 years to biodegrade (MSNBC). And millions of them end up in landfills, and unfortunately the ocean each year. Only 27 percent of bottled end up recycled. (earth911.com) Here are just a few "green" options to try in your home:
Whole House Filtration System: These cost around $750 and mean that not only is your drinking water filtered, but the water you wash your dishes and shower in as well! Be sure to research brands before buying, however, since there are brands that outperform their competitors. Faucet filtration: These systems connect directly to your faucet and cost under $25.00. They have filters that needs changed every 6 months. Filtered Water Pitcher: Research has shown that pitchers don't filter out as many contaminants as faucet systems, but they are a great option for busy families or offices without regular access to water. You can fill it up once and use it all day! Reusable Bottles: And finally, for "on the go" water drinkers, be sure to invest in a reusable bottle. You can choose from
either stainless steel water bottles or BPA free bottles. They cost $10 or less for basic varieties and will allow you to take water to the office and in the car.
Bottled water usage is a hard habit to change. The ease and convenience, plus its obvious benefits over consuming sugary soda drinks makes it hard
to give up. But by making a few simple changes in your home, as well as buying a reusable bottle for on the go, you'll be sure to stick with it!

Spare bedroom, hobby studio or man cave? Create a dream basement (ARA) - It’s no longer a dark, gloomy place to stash holiday supplies, store neglected exercise equipment or hide out-of-date furniture. Basements are becoming “dream spaces” for many baby boomers and their loved ones. Whether it’s a private living suite to accommodate a child or grandchild who’s moved back home, a cheerful craft studio or a fully loaded man cave, basement renovations are popular home improvement options.
“Today many baby boomers are remodeling their homes instead of building or moving to a new one,” says Pella Windows & Doors spokesperson, Kathy Krafka Harkema. “Kitchens and bathrooms are often remodeled, and today basements are also being updated to create fun entertainment zones. Adding new windows and using warm colors can transform a basement into a home gym, workshop, wine cellar or a high-tech media
room.” Safety first Renovating the basement and adding bedrooms? You’ll likely need egress windows to create an easily accessible exit in case of a fire. Essential for safety, egress (emergency escape and rescue) windows also lighten up a dark basement - making it more inviting. Egress windows are larger than a common basement window, syas Cordell Burton, Pella product qualification manager. Egress defines the minimum width, height and square footage of the window opening. “Each level of the home has different egress requirements,” Burton says. Window shopping Casement windows featuring one hinged sash that cranks out are easy to open and a popular choice for basements, Burton says. However, casements require a wider window well on the home exterior, so consider that in your remodeling plans. Pella offers many energy-efficient casement window options, ranging from vinyl and fiberglass composite to wood styles. If exterior space is limited, Burton suggests a sliding window featuring two sashes where one sash slides
left or right. Sliding egress windows must meet higher width requirements and are available in budgetfriendly vinyl and fiberglass options. Consult with a local building code expert or make sure your contractor is familiar with your area’s building codes before beginning a basement renovation, Burton advises. Wonderful walkouts If your home has a walkout basement, consider adding a beautiful new patio door to create an impressive focal point inside and out. Here’s an additional tip from Burton: If you have limited patio space outside, install an inswing hinged patio door - one that opens into
your basement, providing more usable space on the patio. Consider your climate conditions as well. In areas with heavy snowfall, an inswing hinged patio door may be your best option. But if you have limited room inside, consider an out-swing hinged door. Or opt for sliding patio doors, like the energy-efficient new Pella 350 Series vinyl patio door line, which features distinctive design possibilities with a choice of two-, threeor four-panel doors to create more natural light and an expanded view. Optional shades or blinds are permanently sealed between the glass to stay clean, provide light control
and increased privacy. And the blind design with no room-side cords is safer for homes with children and pets. Keep it comfortable As you create your dream basement, ask your contractor to incorporate universal design features. “Update your home now with your future safety, comfort and convenience in mind,” Krafka Harkema says. “Adding 36-inch wide doors, stylish levers rather than knobs on doors, easy-access storage areas and other universal design features now can make a home easier to live in or visit in the long-term, regardless of a person’s age, size or ability.”

Should I buy a home now? By Phoebe Chongchua RealtyTimes.com
The Zillow Home Value Index fell 26% since its peak in June 2006. That’s a greater decline than seen in the Depression-era years of 1928 to 1933. According to Zillow.com, "November marked the 53rd consecutive month of home value declines, with the Zillow Home Value Index (ZHVI) falling 0.8% from October to November, and falling 5.1% year-overyear.” But the news isn’t all bad. If you’ve gathered around the office water cooler to catch up with colleagues, maybe you’ve noticed a bit of optimism blossoming. it’s not just a feeling, it’s real. According to Zillow Research, the economy is improving. The improvement is expected to gradually increase "household formation and consumer confidence”. But the housing market may still face
greater declines due to "excess inventory of homes, high negative equity and foreclosure rates, and weakened demand due to elevated unemployment,” reported Zillow.com. However, if you’ve been watching, waiting, and wondering, when to buy ... . Now’s the time to take note. While no one has a crystal ball to predict what will happen with the housing market, some experts are reporting that an uptrend will occur later this year. They’re basing their beliefs on the job market (some predictions indicate it will improve half-way through this year), and "Homebuilder exchange traded funds are above their
200-day moving averages,” according to ETFTrends.com If all these things have you confused, a simple way to look at real estate is to understand your specific needs,
wants, and long-term goals. Do you need a place to live? Are you planning to stay in your home for at least a couple of years? (Most buyers live in their home on
average seven years). Does owning your home matter? Have you saved money for a downpayment? Answering these questions will help point you in
the right direction. Assuming that buying a home is the best scenario for you, how can you rest easy that you’re getting the best price? Ah, the
$64-million question. You can’t. Timing the market is like trying to win the lottery. There is no absolute way to know when it’s the bottom of the real estate market. That’s why you must know your specific needs,
wants, and longterm goals. If your needs include a home to live in for a lengthy period of time, then homeownership will likely rank higher on your priority list. If building credit, potential of appreciation–yes,
there is still appreciation–especially when you buy a sensibly priced home in a good location. However, the appreciation may be slower and not shoot up into the double digits that we saw in some areas. Consider this, with high inventory, sellers are motivated. You can scoop up a home at a perfect price and you can minimize your potential for low appreciation. If you choose a home that is in the lower-tier of prices (and still within your target price), your home will be less vulnerable in down markets and better situated in up markets because the higherpriced homes help elevate your home’s value. Homeownership has many benefits including tax deductions, the opportunity to make your own creative changes to your home, and the potential for income if you later rent it out.

Warm up to an affordably luxurious bathroom this season (ARA) - With the advent of summer still several months away, the comfort of a hot bath or invigorating shower continues to be something to look forward to every day. However, in many ways, the bathroom can be a frigid place on a cold late-winter or early-spring day. In fact, it often may feel like the coldest room in the house thanks to all of that impersonal chrome, porcelain and tile. But, it doesn’t have to
be. It’s possible to warm up even the chilliest bathroom, even on the tightest of redecorating budgets. As you plan your bathroom revamp, start by looking right under your feet. Many bathroom floors are made from ceramic tile or natural stone, such as marble. Sure, these hard-surface elements look nice, but they also can feel downright icy on your bare feet, not to mention hard and slippery when wet.
Tarkett’s FiberFloor Easy Living Classic resilient flooring in Savanna Flagstone Fossil beautifully provides warmth underfoot.
With 207 designs in distinctive colors and textures, including authentic-looking tile and stone, Tarkett FiberFloor provides the beauty of natural flooring with enhanced durability. “Today’s fiber-backed
resilient sheet flooring products aren’t your grandmother’s vinyl,” says Gary Finseth, director of marketing for Tarkett Residential. “The latest options, like FiberFloor, a Consumers Digest Best Buy, offer
style and durability at a price that doesn’t break the budget. These floors are warm and soft underfoot, and they resist scuffs, scratches, indentations and water. The result is they are perfect for any bath.” Warmth, however, goes beyond flooring. Fluffy towels, plush bathmats and a sumptuous velvet shower curtain will add a sense of rich warmth to the space. Wall color also plays a role. Light and airy colors, while beautiful, definitely do not convey a sense of comfort. Instead, paint your walls an unexpectedly rich color to create a welcoming, cozy atmosphere. Bear in mind that warm colors can make a bathroom look smaller, so be sure to use a soft white as an accent to balance out whatever deep tone you select. For instance, Dutch Boy’s Treaded Grapes offers a splash of color and welcoming personality in a deep, classic purple tone. Paint your bathroom walls with this leading 2011 color trend and offset the statement with Narrative Creamcolored molding and accessories to create a warm yet open space. And of course, a quality shower can easily warm up your body as well as your mood. But don’t settle for just any
showerhead. Update your shower with a new multi-setting showerhead, such as the Moen Nurture eco-performance model. This EPA WaterSense-labeled product offers superior full-body coverage and three different spray settings for an exhilarating experience - all while protecting natural resources. Heated towel racks — once luxury items — now are available at affordable prices for any bathroom, offering floormounted, wall-mounted, hard-wired and pluggedin options. Imagine the luxury of wrapping yourself in a thick, toasty towel the moment you step out of the shower. This can easily become reality. Another warming luxury, the overhead heat light, has come a long way over the years. Now you have the option of getting that infrared warmth from a standardsized bulb instead of the oversized versions of the past. They provide instantaneous heating. Talk with your electrician to see what options would best work in your bathroom. With so many options to warm up your bathroom’s decor to fit a wide range of budgets, there is no reason to deny yourself the luxury of a cozy, spa-like escape at home.

From blinds to draft dodgers, simple ways to improve your home insulation (ARA) - When the wind whips outside your home and temperatures plummet, you may start to think of your home’s insulation and wonder if it’s adequate. While many people equate the idea of insulation with staying warm in winter, did you know your home’s insulation can also help keep you cool in summer? And reduce your energy bills in any season? There’s more to home insulation than just that layer of pink stuff in the attic. From weather stripping around doors and windows to the type of blinds you choose, your home’s insulation has many components, all of which can help you save energy when heating and cooling your home. Sealing and insulating your home can save you up to 20 percent on heating and cooling costs (up to 10 percent of a home’s total annual energy bill), according to EnergyStar.gov. Whether you’re fighting winter’s chill or try-
ing to keep your cool in the summer, these energy saving tips will help improve your home’s overall insulation from roof to basement and reduce energy bills: Attic Take a look at the insulation in your attic. Fiberglass batting is the most common type of insulation used in attics and walls. To determine if you need more insulation in your attic, look at the attic floor, and if you can clearly see the attic floor joists because the insulation is level with them or below them,
you probably need to add more insulation, according to EnergyStar.gov. Adding fiberglass batting is a relatively easy job, well within the capabilities of most do-it-yourselfers. Just be sure that the batting fits snugly into wherever you’re placing it, without the need to compress it to make it fit. Also, while you’re in the attic, take a look at the ducts for your forced-air heating and cooling system. Leaks and poorly sealed connections can allow 20 percent of the air that
moves through the ducts to escape, EnergyStar.gov reports. While you may need a professional to seal ducts that are hidden in walls and floor spaces, you easily can seal exposed ducts yourself by using a duct sealant. Windows Poorly sealed windows can make your home drafty and uncomfortable. In fact, some estimates indicate your home may lose as much as 30 percent of its heating or cooling energy through leaky, drafty windows.
Sealing windows can be time consuming but not difficult. You’ll need caulk and weatherstripping to seal air leaks throughout your home. Weatherstripping materials include felt, foam, vinyl and metal. Whatever material you choose, be sure it will hold up well with friction, weather and temperature changes. Another cost-effective, easy DIY way to improve your windows’ energy efficiency is to insulate them with the right kind of blinds or cell shades. Certain blinds and shades trap expensive heat in and block solar heat in the summer. Shades that are made from a single piece of material that can’t tilt open or closed are better insulators because heating and cooling can’t escape through the slats. Cell shades are an insulating option that isn’t just pretty, it’s also practical. The term “cell” describes each visible side pocket on a honeycomb shade, according to Blinds.com. The more cells in a shade, the
more energy savings it will provide. The larger the cell size, the better the insulation since the cells trap air in the pockets, which helps prevent extreme temperature changes in your home. Doors Doors are also a potential energy drain for your home. Just as you caulk and seal windows, you need to ensure doors are well sealed and not drafty. In addition to weatherstripping, a door sweep, which you install on the bottom of a door to reduce drafts, can help conserve energy. If you’re more of a crafts person than handyman, you can make an old-fashioned draft-dodger that lays along the floor at the bottom of a door and blocks drafts like a door sweep would. Improving your home’s insulation can be an easy, cost-effective way to improve your home’s comfort all year round - and to reap significant savings on energy bills no matter what the season.

How to make your deck an outdoor living room (ARA) - Nothing beats relaxing in the shade or entertaining a group of guests on your own private deck. When you take the time to plan your deck for the way you live, the result can be a versatile living space and a value-boosting addition to your home. Trent Boozer, publisher of Extreme HowTo magazine, notes his readers have made it clear that decks are one of the top projects they love to design and build. The Internet is full of deck plans and planning tools - and with the range of decking products and accessories on the market, every deck can take on a personality of its own, he says. Personalization is what makes the deck an extension of the home, says Rick Preble of Deckorators, the leading deck accessory brand that embraces the concept of deck personalization. “The idea of an outdoor living room has really materialized as people have reattached to their existing homes,” says Preble. A cost-effective way to add square footage and upgrade your lifestyle without moving is with a deck. With all the deck products and
Personalizing your deck has become possible thanks to constant product innovations, like Deckorators Postcover and Duo-Connector deck railing accessories.
accessories available today, homeowners can customize their outdoor rooms.” Deckorators has made the process of mixing and matching different deck accessories and building materials easy with a new, easy-to-use online design program: the Deckorators’ Deck Visualizer. The online tool is free and provides homeowners a way to visually discover the different design options they like best for personalizing a deck. The Deck Visualizer allows the user to set
the virtual deck environment to a lake or backyard view and then change the deck accessories for limitless combinations. Users can select the color or grain of composite or wood decking, select the style of metal or even glass balusters, add baluster infill centerpieces, change railing colors, and add post caps, lighting options and even stone. “This deck design program is fun for homeowners to use and is a great tool for deck planning,” says Preble. “We work with
hundreds of deck builders, and they appreciate having this when working with clients. It allows both consumers and deck builders to visualize different options and choose deck products prior to constructing a deck.” The North American Deck and Railing Association website (nadra.org) is another good place for consumers to start when gathering information for a deck build. The organization has a large gallery of photographs of decks that have received national
awards for design or construction. Michael Beaudry, executive vice president of NADRA, says consumers are definitely hungry for deck design ideas and information on new products. NADRA offers resources to help consumers with deck and rail design and deck safety. The organization’s website also provides access to more than 1,750 different building products companies. Homeowners who want to build or who are renovating an existing deck will find new
trends for 2011. One material making its move onto decks is stone. Deckorators cast stone Postcovers, which install over rail posts, are one new product in high demand. The postcovers provide the same look and feel as natural stone columns, but are designed to install over basic wood posts. Postcovers are handpainted to look like cobblestone, fieldstone or stacked stone. The simulated product costs far less than real masonry work and makes it possible for do-it-yourselfers or contractors to add simulated stone columns to a deck. “Stone or simulated stone on a deck has become possible with new products, and it’s another example of interior design trends and the mixing of various elements making their way to outdoor living areas,” Preble says. Experts agree that putting the time into planning your deck up front and knowing what your product options are is the best way to ensure you end up with a space your family will embrace as a true outdoor living room.

Winter lawn care By Carla Hill RealtyTimes.com
Winter may have your lawn looking less than stellar. To keep your neighbors happy -- and potential buyers interested -- take a look at these lawn care tips. Why is winter lawn care so important? By taking a few precautions during the Winter, you can ensure a healthy lawn come Springtime. The first, and perhaps easiest, step is to pick up any leaves that cover your lawn. If left sitting over grass, they will create dead spots. The same goes for clutter and debris, such as toys. You may think that grass is completely dormant during Winter months, however, grass still needs oxygen and sunlight to maintain life. If you have it covered, you
have it smothered. The next step, do not drive on the grass. Winter is a time for holiday parties and family get-togethers. Many people may be tempted to park on lawns. Resist the urge! You can take lawn care two steps further, as well. If your lawn has pH issues, now is the time to treat it with lime and other additives. Contact your local lawn specialist for more information. Late Winter is also the time to aerate your lawn. What is aerating? By making small holes in the surface of your lawn, you allow for deeper root growth. You also allow nutrients to gain direct access to the grass roots. This should give you a fuller, thicker lawn. Follow these simple steps and wake up to a beautiful Spring lawn.
