You also can use the collected rainwater to fill ponds and fountains or to even wash the lovebugs off of your car. One inch of rain over 1,000 square feet of roof area generates more than 620 gallons of water. Even a light rain would easily fill a 50-gallon rain barrel. Some of the local garden centers carry rain barrels that can be quickly installed to capture the water from a gutter. The barrel can be sealed to the gutter to make a tight connection, which will keep leaf litter and mosquitoes out. You also can make your own barrel from a recycled pickle barrel, available at local feed stores. This barrel would need to have a nozzle and overflow spout installed. Contact the UF/IFAS

Clear glass canisters let you know when supplies are low ($5-$20, www.crateandbarrel.com). As laundry products become more and more specialized, you might find that you have more and more products to organize. “Years ago, it was just a laundry product,” says Nancy Brock, senior vice president of education for the American Cleaning Institute. “Today it’s a laundry product for someone that may have sensitive skin issues. . . .

With this style of rain barrel you do not need to necessarily attach it to a gutter because the top is a large, screened opening. Simply place it underneath a down spout that has a steady stream of water when it rains. Both styles of rain barrels needs to be placed up on blocks to create enough pressure to get decent water flow. Some gardeners even attach a soaker hose or a drip irrigation hose to

the barrel. Your rain barrel will be an excellent addition to your Florida-Friendly Landscape. ■■■

What type of blackberry does best in our area? Are they easy to grow? Blackberries can be an easy fruit to grow. We have native blackberries in Florida, and they often grow along fence lines or in pastures. I know folks who stake out their favorite blackberry patch in advance so they can beat the deer and the birds to the delicious berries. The recommended varieties for Florida are early fruiting trailing types like Oklawaha

Q:

A:

and Flordagrand. Brazos and Kiowa are later fruiting, semi-erect types. The trailing types need to be trained to a trellis or a support system. Brazos, Tupi and Kiowa will grow more like a bush. In the last decade or two, blackberry growers have been trying thornless blackberries in their plantings. Varieties such as Arapaho, Navaho, Apache, Ouachita and Natchez have good-size berries and no thorns on the stems or canes. In ongoing field trials at the University of Florida, the Natchez cultivar seems to be producing the most fruit. These cultivars are self-pollinating.

But it is good practice to plant several different blackberry cultivars together to promote cross pollination. Plant them 2 to 4 feet apart and leave 3 to 5 feet or more for a row. You will need to prune your blackberry plants to keep the plant vigorous and healthy. Blackberry fruit is produced on the current year’s growth on a stem called a floricane. Once fruiting is over, sometime in mid-summer, you will prune out the floricanes. The stems that are left will produce fruit the following year. A good pruning helps to keep diseased stems and leaves away from your blackberry patch.

Fertilize blackberries in late spring or early summer using a complete balanced fertilizer like a 10-10-10 at ¼- to ½-pound per plant. The main challenge you will probably face is weed control under the blackberry plants. A heavy mulch layer between the plants can help with this, but you will probably have to do some cultivation (hoeing) as well. For more information on blackberries and other fruits, visit the UF/ IFAS Extension website at www.solutionsforyourlife.com Wendy Wilber is an extension agent with UF/IFAS.

ince Vaughn has bought a house for $3.925 million in an area of Los Angeles one might not normally associate with actors — La Canada Flintridge. And while the small, affluent community may not have the Vaughn celebrity cachet of Hollywood Hills, he can count actress Angela Bassett and a host of entertainment-industry types among his neighbors. Plus, the schools are good. To borrow his oft-quoted phrase: It’s “so money.” Still, it will be a big change from his three-level penthouse atop Chicago’s Palmolive Building. That property was listed at $16.8 million until recently. His new Colonial-style home sits on three-quarters of an acre with a swimming pool and a sports court. There are five bedrooms, six bathrooms and 5,563 square feet of living space. Also a producer and screenwriter, the 43-yearold Vaughn has starred in movies such as “Wedding Crashers” (2005), “Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story” (2004) and “Swingers” (1996). He will be in “The Internship,” due out next month, and “Delivery Man.”

This type of bathtub replacement often comes in three to four pieces that can be easily moved into place. Because the wall surrounds are included, there’s no need to install new tile walls. WALK-IN SHOWER: This is a great aging-in-place option where the existing tub is replaced with a large walk-in shower base. These special shower-only

fixtures come in a variety of materials and are designed to fit existing tub spaces. Note: If you go with the walk-in shower option and plan on selling your home soon, potential homebuyers may walk out if they need to have a bathtub.

REALTORS® Bring Public Policy Priorities to Capitol Hill

Program

As we, Carla Lord(MLS President), Randy Alvord(OMCAR V.P.) and I sit here flying some 30,000 feet above Florida and heading to Washington D.C.. We are excited to be chosen to represent our local Ocala / Marion County Association of REALTORS®, and the opportunity to meet with regulators, lawmakers and industry leaders this week to address critical real estate issues affecting individuals, communities and the nation. During the week, we will be visiting with legislators on Capitol Hill to urge action toward preserving the mission and purpose of the Federal Housing Administration’ single-family mortgage program, encouraging the return of private capital to mortgage markets, restructuring government-sponsored enterprises Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to guarantee affordable mortgage financing is available to creditworthy consumers in all types of markets, and maintaining current tax policies for homeownership and real estate investment. During the week some 9,000 REALTORS® will participate in sessions with a number of government officials and industry experts, including representatives from Consumer Financila Protection Bureau, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, FEMA, Federal Reserve Board and realtor.com®. “It’s important for Realtors® to remind the nation’s policymakers that homeownership has had longstanding government support in this country because it helps builds wealth for hardworking middle-class families, shapes our communities and strengthens the nation’s economy,” said Thomas. “We need to ensure that any policy decisions that our elected officials are making today or in the future continue to support, and not hurt, housing markets, America’s 75 million current homeowners and those who aspire to one day own a home of their own.” The National Association of Realtors®, “The Voice for Real Estate,” is America’s largest trade association, representing 1 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.

And, Soto suggests, use a bin or storage caddy, such as a Vinea storage basket, to avoid getting scum and residue on shelves and other surfaces ($12-$35, www.organize.com). Among the essentials that the Laundress’ Lindsey Boyd lists for a well-organized laundry room are a hand-washing sink or tub, hampers, drying racks, hangers, mesh washing bags, a steamer, trash cans and “a nice, clean work table.” She has a bar-height Ikea table for her laundry. For something similar, try Ikea’s Utby stainless-steel table ($199, www.ikea. com).

Some simple tips to create artful displays with prized collections Scripps Howard News Service

ecorating with your collections is a wonderful way to weave your personality into your decor and make your home a unique expression of your life and interests. Here are tips I use to create displays with my collections. 1. STRENGTH IN NUMBERS: One of my favorite ways to display collections is in, well, collections! It’s intriguing to study the individual pieces of a grouping, whether it’s small flower vases or antique egg cups, to see how they are different and how they are similar. It’s a great way to show the breadth of your collections. A common mistake I see people make when they decorate with collections of small items is to line up all the little guys on a shelf, where they get lost. Or, assemble them all on a table, creating a monotonous mass. An easy way to create a powerful display of small collectibles is to place them together on a tray. If your collection consists of larger items, pull them all together for a huge showy display that takes over a bookcase or hutch. Group together pieces that offer a variety of sizes and shapes so the scene is visually intriguing. 2. TAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL: If your collection consists of small things or items that are about the same size, boost some of them up on risers. I arrange them on a dessert server. You also

Your collections are pieces of art. So, if you can, use items from your collection as artwork. I am crazy about dishes, so I often prop them in easels and insert them into displays on tables, mantels or bookcases. They make ideal backdrops for the smaller items you place in front of them. I also really like to hang plates, platters and trays from my collections on my walls. 3. FIND A NICHE: Do you have little nooks and crannies in your home that are just begging to hold something, but you’re not sure what? Accessorize them with a few collectibles. Each cubby in my secretary is like a little show-

case. A friend of mine has hung a display cabinet on her living room wall and filled the shelves with pieces of her collection. I’m always stuck to it like glue, studying the individual items. Create one more layer in your existing displays by adding a piece or two from your collection. Do you love dog figurines? Put one on top of a stack of books on a side table, in a bookcase or on your mantel. 4. PUT THEM TO WORK: An optimal way to use pieces of your collections in your everyday decor is to put them to work. I am over the moon about lovely dishes, so you’ll find mix-and-match pieces throughout my home working for their keep. In your home, use pretty cups as pencil holders, plates as soap dishes or platters to collect the day’s mail. Mary Carol Garrity can be reached at mary carol@nellhills.com.

HOME MAINTENANCE

Adding door is just first step in creating room over garage Scripps Howard News Service

We listed our home as having four bedrooms. After it was inspected, we were informed we could list only three bedrooms because the room over the garage did not have a door. This has lowered the value of the home. If we were to add a door, could we again list the home as having four bedrooms? The simple answer is yes, as long as the

Q:

A:

room also has an operable window that is no higher than 44 inches from the floor and has a minimum opening width of 20 inches and a minimum opening height of 22 inches. This is the requirement for an emergency

egress window. A bedroom also requires a closet and, because the room will be considered an addition, the room will require a smoke alarm. Also, make sure the door opens into the room and not over a step. You must be describing a two-car garage because the attic space of a one-car garage is not wide enough, even with a steep-pitched roof, to have a living space above it. All

too often, I find a garage attic that has been converted to a bedroom or a bonus room without giving consideration to how much weight the floor can support for a 22-foot span. A typical garage attic floor is designed to support the weight of the garage ceiling only. To convert the attic to a livable room, the attic floor will need to be reconstructed to support the weight of floor’s

Real Estate

covering, the furniture and the occupants. A typical 22-foot wide garage will have 2-by-8inch ceiling joists set 16 inches apart. To convert the attic to a room, the floor joists will need to be replaced with 2-by-12inch select wood joists set 12 inches apart or a beam and posts will have to be added in the garage to support the existing 2-by-8-inch ceiling joists. Before adding a door,

have the floor joists inspected further by a qualified home inspector, contractor or engineer. Dwight Barnett is a certified master inspector with the American Society of Home Inspectors.
