DIY or go pro? Try stylish, sustainable fall interior design ideas

Fall’s Colorful Bounty Article Resource Association

When you think of the colors associated with fall, green doesn’t necessarily come to mind. Environmentally speaking, however, it should. There’s no better time than now to lessen your home’s impact on the environment and change the way you decorate and live. So, why not go green this fall? It’s not nearly as difficult to become earth-friendly as you might think. “From products that contribute to good indoor air quality to ones that truly reflect the reduce, reuse, recycle mantra, the number of affordable green interior decorating products has literally exploded within the past five years,” says Donna Schroeder, Dutch Boy color marketing and design manager. These days, you can find stylish, eco-friendly design elements for every room in the house. And, contrary to popular belief, going green doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style for sustainability. The two can coexist

quite effortlessly. You can start simple by dressing your bed in luxurious sheets, throws and comforters made from fabrics such as rich, renewable bamboo or soft, organic cotton. Cover your floors with formaldehyde-free carpets constructed of recycled fibers or select a natural material, like stone, slate or even concrete. Then, hang energy-efficient window treatments with high insulation and shading properties. Don’t stop there. Spice up your tired sofa with a design-forward slipcover and throw pillows crafted from 100 percent recycled materials. Add bright recycled glass plates and serving pieces to your china cabinet. Buy furniture made from sustainably harvested wood or, better yet, visit local secondhand shops and repurpose. Or, look around your own home and see what you already have that can be adapted for a new use. You’d be surprised what a little creativity and some good old-fashioned elbow grease can do.

If you’re looking to add bold, fun color, paint fits perfectly into this overall green scheme. It’s an inexpensive, effective and, most importantly, environmentally-minded way to change the look and feel of an entire room. Many paint manufacturers now offer coatings that contain few, if any, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), or vapors that are released from paint as it dries. Using paints formulated without VOCs, such as Dutch Boy’s new Refresh interior paint with exclusive odor-eliminating Arm & Hammer technology, takes your home one step closer to reducing your environmental impact while leaving your interior looking fresh, modern and filled with personality. Keep in mind that greening your home, inside or out, doesn’t happen in a matter of minutes or even overnight. It’s an ongoing process. The limit to how green your home can be is up to how willing you are to adjust your lifestyle. The choice is yours.

Do-it-yourself home improvement projects continue to be popular. After all, it can save money and be satisfying. But not all projects should be DIY. There are a number of things to consider before picking up a tool belt. Home improvement experts recommend you ask yourself these questions: • Do I really have the skills and knowledge to take on this project? You may be able to install a light fixture, but that doesn’t mean you can put up drywall if you’ve never done it before. • Can I do a quality job? Some projects require more skill and experience than others. Make sure you feel confident in your ability to do a job you can be proud of. Poor quality work not only detracts from the look of a home, it can actually hurt the value. • Do I have the time to do this? Experts recommend that DIYers double the amount of time a project is supposed to take. Do you have that kind of time to invest? • Will I actually finish the project? Many homeowners start a project with great enthusiasm. But as time goes on and problems arise, the project gets overwhelming and often gets left unfinished. • Can I do this by myself? If your project calls for more than one person, do you have a ready assistant who has the time and the skills to help? • If the project requires permits, can I get them on my own? Some projects, or parts of projects, may require building permits. Call your local building authority to find out exactly what permits are required and how to get them. They can also tell you which aspects of the project require a licensed professional. • Do I have the right tools? If not, can you borrow or rent them at a reasonable rate. Trying to make-do with the wrong tools will hurt the quality of your project, and could hurt you. • What’s the real cost of doing it myself? It’s about more than just the supplies on a project list. Take into consideration things like gloves, safety goggles, tools you don’t own and your time. You may also want to figure in the damage factor – what it costs to do things over or repair damage done in the process. Will it really save you money? • Is it safe for me to do this? Lack of knowledge, experience and the right safety equipment can raise the risk of injury. If your home is older, it might contain hazardous materials like asbestos or lead-based paint. You should always have a professional do that kind of removal work.

Winterizing checklist

Prepare your home for winter weather By Daelena Tinnin Longmont Times-Call

The frigid winter months can take a toll on your home. Heating bills go up, pipes may freeze and more time spent indoors can mean higher energy usage. Luckily, upgrades and simple do-ityourself projects can reduce winter energy costs and get your home ready for whatever the cold may bring. Before rushing to the nearest home or appliance store, homeowners should start by getting a home energy audit or analysis – this can be a do-it-yourself project or through a professional auditor. These tools help to determine the energy performance of the home, recommend ways to increase energy efficiency and estimate the potential savings with energy efficient upgrades. James Evig, sales manager at Budget Home Center in Longmont, recommends some quick and easy things you can do. “These are all things that any homeowner should be able to do,� Evig says. First, weather strip doors to keep the cool air out and the hot air in can reduce heating costs. Re-caulking doors and windows or using plastic coverings can also help to seal any cracks from wear and tear throughout the

year. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, reducing drafts can mean 5 to 30 percent in potential energy savings a year. Also, remember to replace your furnace filter. “You should replace your furnace filter at least twice a year,� Evig says. When furnace filters become dirty they reduce the energy efficiency of the home’s heating and air conditioning system. To help reduce heating bills, Evig suggests insulation. “Adding insulation to the attic is probably the easiest to do.� Insulation is also one of the most cost effective ways to improve home energy efficiency. A pre-winter home checklist could also include replacing some of those old appliances. In a typical home, appliances and home electronics account for about 20 percent of the bills. Chris Ramirez, who works in sales at Lynn Cunningham Appliance in Longmont, says Energy Star appliances are the way to go to reduce energy costs. Energy Star refrigerators, clothes washers and dishwashers help the environment and the bills. The City of Longmont Power and Communications and United Power offer rebates for Energy Star appliances and a new cash for clunkers style program on appliances will begin

late this fall. And don’t forget, using Energy Star qualified compact fluorescent light bulbs save on energy costs and last 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs. For some extra energy and time savings, homeowners can also clean their dryer vents to get rid of lint buildup which increases dry time and presents a potential fire hazard. “Some customers have told us it cuts the dry time by almost half, even with a load of towels,� Ramirez says.

dryers are usually the secondlargest electricity consumer after refrigerators and reducing their annual operating costs could save energy and money during the winter months.

Experience Isn’t Expensive...It’s Priceless

For more ways to get your home winter ready check out these tips from Precision Plumbing and Heating in Longmont. • Test your furnace before it gets cold, it should be tuned up yearly. • Protect your hot water system from possible freezing by adding propylene glycol. • Leave your heat on at 60 degrees if you leave home in the winter. • Turn off all interior valves for each outdoor faucet and open the outdoor faucet. • Remove, drain and store garden hoses. • Replace batteries in flashlights in case of power outages. • Test all smoke detectors, replace batteries and if possible install smoke detectors that are also carbon monoxide detectors. • Make sure your house number is well lit and clearly legible from the street. • Clean gutters several times – don’t wait until the end of fall. • If possible insulate any pipes and heating ducts that run through unheated crawlspaces or attics.

Chandeliers add drama

Staging your home for sale

Family Features

Chandeliers aren’t just for grand ballrooms or even formal dining rooms anymore. They come in so many styles and sizes that they can add a touch of drama to any room in the house. Size matters when selecting a chandelier, according to Mary Beth Gotti, a lighting expert with GE Consumer & Industrial. She points out there is a simple way to make sure the fixture is not too large or too small for your room. Just measure the length and width of the room, in feet. Add the two numbers together and the sum should equal the diameter of the chandelier, in inches. In the dining room, however, a chandelier should be scaled to the size of the table, not the room. It should be no greater than the width of the table minus 12 to 20 inches, to prevent anyone from bumping into it. How high off the table should a chandelier be hung? “Typically, you’ll find them 30 to 36 inches above the top of the table, depending on the ceiling height,” Gotti says. Gotti suggests that lighting from a chandelier that beams directly down on your guests from above can cast unflattering shadows. The heat from bulbs directly overhead should also be considered. She offered these tips: • Avoid high wattage bulbs as they will increase the heat and can increase the potential for glare. • Consider decorative compact fluorescent decorative lamps to reduce watts and extend lamp life. • Try adding shades to chandelier candelabra bulbs or a wall dimmer to help control the light and set a comfortable mood. • For extra sparkle, consider installing small recessed downlights on either side of the chandelier. The right light in the right fixture will create the look you really want.

Use decorative bulbs in chandeliers, sconces, bathroom fixtures – anywhere the bulb is visible. With decorative bulbs, the bulb is just as dazzling as the light it creates. Superior halogen technology allows GE bulbs to deliver the highest quality of light that’s long-lasting and energy-efficient. Clear bulbs can provide glitter, but can also be sources of glare if exposed. Dimming can reduce glare and provide lighting flexibility or “scenes” for various events. Coated bulbs or coated compact fluorescent bulbs provide more diffused light, re-

ducing harsh shadows. Now that you have the measurement details and proper bulb selection mastered, the biggest challenge will be selecting among the dazzling fixtures available. Whether it’s a Mission-style fixture hanging in the den surrounded by quarter-sawn oak bookcases, a chrome fixture with geometric glass elements hanging in a modern master bedroom, or simply a junk-store find adding a splash of whimsy to a shabby chic apartment – chandeliers can be the crowning star of a room’s décor.

Tips for clearing the air in your home Control formaldehyde and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are chemicals that evaporate at room temperature, giving off irritating fumes that cause asthma flare-ups. “Everything from the furniture you buy to cleaning solvents to paint may have formaldehyde and other kinds of VOCs with these off-gassing properties,” says Mike Tringale, director of external affairs at the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. “Particle board or pressed wood is often finished or treated with some kind

of formaldehyde preservative.” These fumes dissipate throughout time, so don’t hesitate to ask furniture, carpet or flooring dealers to allow a product to off-gas for a couple of weeks or so before delivery. Consider storing it in your garage before bringing it into the house, and provide good ventilation in your home at all times.

Staging is the buzzword these days. When selling a home, it is suggested the home be staged for a better or quicker sale. The idea behind staging is to make the home look uncluttered and as professionally decorated as possible so it appears fresh and inviting to potential buyers. If the home is vacant, a professional stager will put furniture and accessories in to make the home more inviting. If the home is occupied, a stager can come clean up, straighten, add accessories and rearrange furniture to make the rooms open and appealing. Having a home professionally staged can cost a lot of money, but there are ways you can do it yourself. Let’s explore the possibilities. Start by “window shopping” model homes. Visit homes professionally decorated that are up for sale to see how the professionals do it. Check out the bathrooms and see how clean and inviting they are. Look at the kitchen to see what is being displayed, such as plants and homey cookbooks; and what generally isn’t displayed, such as small appliances and cutting boards. Notice how most model homes are neutrally colored and decorated. Neutral tones such as beige and tan are naturally appealing to the general public. If bold colors appeal to some people, pastels might appeal more to others. The bold aficionados will be turned off by the pastel colors and visa versa – hence, the neutral theme. When de-cluttering, be sure to remove some personal items such as extra family photos. An overabundance of photos on flat surfaces, shelves and walls can be over the top with buyers. Grooming supplies in the bathrooms also must go. Instead, display unused scented or fancy soaps, towels tied with ribbon, perhaps two or three candles on the edge of the tub. Place a variety of greens/plants in a few rooms; natural ones are best. If there are flowers growing in your yard, cut and display some in the house. The outside of your home is obviously the first thing people see. Check to be sure the house paint is in good condition. Also, the front door is essential when it comes to presenting a welcome facade, so be sure it is well painted and in good condition. Perhaps place a pot of yellow flowers by the door. Lastly, clean and well-manicured landscaping is essential. Be sure the house, both inside and out, is clean. Hire a professional cleaning company if necessary. The windows should be sparkling, the baseboards should be free of dust, and the shelves meticulously cleaned. If necessary, hire a cleaner to spiff up your house weekly to be sure that every open house is well received. These ideas might cost you a bit, but a well-staged home has been proven to sell quicker and get a better selling price than a home that is left in an unprofessional clutter. – Rosemary Sadez Friedmann

Tips for getting foreclosure deals

Keeping healthy plants Spider mite webbing on houseplants suggests humidity levels are too low. Mist the affected foliage and take steps to increase air moisture. A humidifier works well. Grouping plants together will also raise humidity levels. In addition, you can place pots on trays filled with gravel or river stones and water. The plants must sit above the water line and will still need watering. – The Washington Post 48-136778

Foreclosure. It seems like half the country is in it and the other half is trying to make a killing on it. The number of foreclosed homes staggers the imagination and with more adjustable-rate loans about to reset, the end is nowhere in sight. The crisis, however, provides the opportunity to purchase a house that was all but impossible for many to afford in the boom years. But there are many pitfalls and a hasty buyer can end up in a quagmire. With investors flocking to capitalize on discounted properties, good deals usually go fast. It’s unrealistic to think you’re going to get a pristine property in a prime location for 50 percent less than area comparables. But 20 percent under the neighborhood market is possible. If you’re a potential foreclosure buyer, the obvious place to start is price and condition. But there’s far more to it. Consider these tips to get your best deal. “This can happen two different ways,” says Sean O’Toole, founder and CEO of “The underpriced properties get a ton of activity and go quickly, but you can really get a better deal on an overpriced property,” he says. An overpriced property will generally get little interest and may sit on the market for a year or more. Therefore, when someone actually makes an offer, the bank may act on it quickly. “For the home buyer who’s up for the challenge, it can mean getting a property at less than market value,” says Aaron Lewis, broker/owner of The Lewis Team at Prudential California Realty in Turlock, Calif. He offers this example: “If the home is listed at $170,000 and needs $10,000 worth of repairs, take a look at comparable properties in the area. If the house would be worth $200,000 with the repairs done, then you’re getting a $200,000 property for $180,000 and that’s a great deal.” To move properties more

quickly, says F.F. “Chappy” Adams, president of Illustrated Properties, in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., “lenders are often making significant repairs, replacing major items or offering repair assistance.” That alone may make the home, once repaired, a good investment down the road. “A good neighborhood supports your home value over time,” Lewis says. How do you determine that? In addition to scouring the neighborhoods for well-kept yards, easy access to shopping and short work commute times, look at school scores, says Lewis. “A good school district will usually help housing hold its value over the years.”

“If you can purchase homes needing rehab work at significantly lower prices (than those homes that don’t need work), complete the work yourself and build instant equity, then you’re ahead of the game.” – F.F. “Chappy” Adams, president of Illustrated Properties, in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. Check out the number of foreclosures in the neighborhood as well. “If there are a lot of homes in one neighborhood that are in foreclosure, be wary,” says Jim Mazziotti, broker/owner of EXIT Realty Bend in Bend, Ore. “Values may still be declining there.” Adams, whose company has a department that handles only bank-owned properties, says “Some lenders are favoring cash transactions over finance purchases and taking deeper discounts to sell the property.” If cash is not an option for you, it’s important to get prequalified for a loan so you can

react quickly once you find a home. You can look for the best interest rate by searching Bankrate’s mortgage rate tables, then contact the lender to get pre-approved. Particularly for a cash buyer, this strategy makes a lot of sense. “Make your offer at the end of a month, quarter or year,” says O’Toole. “Many times, banks will want to get deals closed and off the books. So, consider making a November or December offer and highlight the fact that you can close by Dec. 31,” he says. You can get a lower price simply because it works for the bank’s timing. Many times listing agents – who often get 20 or more properties from the bank to list at one time – simply don’t have the time or manpower to include every detail about every house in their online marketing. “An REO (real estate-owned) broker may run out to the house, take a look around the inside and snap a few photos of the outside, but they may not mention in the online listing that the home has a beautiful backyard and upgraded landscaping,” O’Toole says. It pays to do more than simply check out the property online. If the property meets your criteria for size, number of bedrooms and neighborhood, go see it in person. And, says Adams, “Always have a licensed home inspector check out the home.” With REO properties, go directly to the listing agent, who has the relationship with the bank asset manager, who approves or denies the sale. Or, find a real estate professional who works extensively in the foreclosure arena who will have more experience in bank-owned properties. The bottom line: When it comes to buying a foreclosure, home buyers need to throw emotion out the window and think like an investor. “If you can purchase homes needing rehab work at significantly lower prices (than those homes that don’t need work), complete the work yourself and build instant equity, then you’re ahead of the game,” Adams says.

Tackle allergens in the Punch bowl set worth plenty home By Helaine Fendelman and Joe Rosson Scripps Howard News Service

Dear Helaine and Joe: Enclosed are pictures of a 14-piece punch bowl set. It is in perfect condition. I know it has been in my family since at least 1923 and perhaps before that. I plan to pass it on to my daughter and would like for her to know the insurance replacement value. Can you help me? Sincerely, G. H., Durham Dear G. H.: We receive a lot of questions about Nippon porcelain each year, but most of the items are rather ordinary, and in a declining market for this type of ware, not very valuable. However, the set in today’s question is quite beautiful and rather extraordinary. This set – and it is amazing that the entire set still exists in excellent condition – is marked with the letter “M” in a wreath with the words “Hand Painted” above and “Nippon” underneath. The story of Nippon porcelain starts in the U.S. Congress when the McKinley Tariff Act was passed in 1890. It required that all items exported to the United States be marked with the country of origin. The law went into effect in 1891 and at that time goods made in England were marked England, those made

in France were marked France, those made in Germany were marked Germany and so on. The Japanese chose to mark their export items with the name of their country – Nippon, and from 1891 to 1921 their porcelain wares were so marked. After that it became Japan or Made in Japan. The company we now call Noritake can trace its origins back to a trading company named Morimura-Kumi, founded in Tokyo in 1876. But it was not until 1904 that the Nippon Toki Kaisha Ltd firm was registered in Noritake, Japan. The 14 pieces mentioned in the letter are the two handled punch bowl, the base on which the punch bowl rests, and 12 cups without handles that are shaped something like saucer champagne glasses. Looking at the photograph, we do not see any wear whatsoever to the gold (which is remarkable) and the painted areas seem to show no signs of abrasion. There may have been a ladle at one time, but we doubt it. It is rare to find a Nippon Noritake punch bowl set completely intact, and we feel that the insurance replacement value is between $1,500 and $2,000.

If sneezing, sniffling and coughing are frequent sounds in your house, don’t worry, you’re not alone in trying to find ways to stop them. An estimated 50 million people suffer from indoor and outdoor allergies in the United States, costing Americans nearly seven billion dollars annually, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. Asthma and allergy triggers – called allergens – accumulate in unexpected places throughout your home. Furniture, bedding, curtains, drapes and carpeting can each house dust mites, pet dander and outside allergens entering through the windows. Here are some tips from appliance manufacturer LG Electronics to reduce the number of allergens. • Use washable floor mats, and run them through the laundry once a week to remove small food particles. • Don’t let damp towels pile up as mold and mites can spread quickly. • Pet beds hold a lot of dander. Give them

their own sleeping area somewhere in the house that isn’t a bedroom. • Make sure your wash cycle removes allergens. • Replace your mattresses every 10 years, and vacuum them regularly. • Use washable slipcovers on couches if you have pets to help control pet dander. • Consider purchasing more products, including kids’ toys and table linens, that are machine washable. • Draperies can also harbor allergens. Use vertical blinds or other easy-to-clean window treatments instead. “While removing allergens like dust mites and pet dander in your house won’t cure your allergies, it certainly will help you protect your family by reducing their exposure to these asthma and allergy triggers,” says Mike Tringale, director of external affairs for AAFA. “By designing a special wash cycle that meets our standards, LG has created a tool that can help Americans in their efforts to reduce their exposure to allergens throughout the home.”

Trends that will make your kitchen cook Do you feel drab when dishing up dinner? Bored during breakfast? Here are some hot trends to spice up your kitchen. • Freestyle. Because we’re spending more time in our kitchens, there is a move away from the all-or-nothing “fitted” look of continuous counters. Look for more freestanding pieces of furniture or features with furniture-like qualities, such as a cabriole leg holding up

a kitchen counter. • Artistic upgrades. In the ongoing effort to customize kitchens, almost anything goes. Now range hoods are works of art, literally. Already beautiful as well as functional, hoods can now be customized with panels you choose. • Going green. Eco-friendly products aren’t going to go out of style anytime soon. And now there are more ways that you can

go green in the kitchen, too, from energy-efficient dishwashers to environmentally sound flooring options. • Asian fusion. With international style so popular at home, it’s no wonder that the Asian influence is still going strong. • refrigerator drawers and dishwasher drawers, and say hello to the microwave drawer. – HGTV

First-time home buyer tax credit will be extended Ilyce Glink Tribune Media Services

It looks like the $8,000 bet many existing homeowners made is going to pay off. Senate negotiators announced during the last week of October that they had come to an agreement on extending and slightly expanding the extremely popular $8,000 first time home buyer tax credit. The existing $8,000 credit will be extended until June 30, 2010, for contracts that are finalized by April 30. Homeowners who lived in their homes for five consecutive years throughout the past eight years, will get a tax credit of up to $6,500 as long as they finalize their home purchase contract by April 30 and close by June 30. Members of the Armed Forces who are on active duty for at least 90 days in 2008 or 2009 have until April 30, 2011 to claim the tax credit as either first-time buyers or trade-up buyers. To protect against fraud, you must be 18 years of age or older to claim the credit (a 4-year old had claimed the credit as a first-time

buyer because her parents already owned a home), and a HUD-1 settlement statement must be attached to the tax filing. Finally, the IRS will have greater oversight during the processing of forms, rather than waiting to audit them. The income limits for the tax credit have been raised to $125,000 for individuals and up to $225,000 for married couples. The $8,000 first time home buyer tax credit was due to expire on Nov. 30, 2009. Originally, the White House said it would be in favor of simply extending the tax credit for first-time buyers through the winter selling season, which is typically slower than the rest of the year. But the latest new home sales figures from the Commerce Department caught everyone by surprise: New home sales for September dropped a surprising 3.5 percent, to an annualized 402,000 sales for 2009. Economists were expecting new home sales to rise about 5 percent.

The new annualized sales figure is about the lowest on record. Up until the Commerce Department report, senators were arguing about whether an extension or expansion of the tax credit was needed. The cost, about $17 billion, is unpopular with some taxpayers who believe the federal deficit shouldn’t be inflated any more than it already is. But the Realtor, mortgage banker and home builder trade groups have been pushing Congress and the White House for months, arguing that without an extension and expansion of the $8,000 tax credit, existing and new home sales were destined to fall flat. The new home sales number seems to be the “magic bullet” senators and lobbyists were hoping to find. The deal, which had been in negotiation for weeks, came together quickly. In a press conference, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan said they “welcome efforts taken by Congress to extend the first time

home buyers tax credit for a limited period. This credit has brought new families into the housing market and contributed to three consecutive months of rising home prices nationwide.” Mindful that the IRS has testified that as many as 100,000 taxpayers have fraudulently applied for the credit, Geithner and Donovan urged Congress “to include strict measures to combat tax fraud and protect responsible homeowners.” While everyone is celebrating the extension and expansion of the $8,000 tax credit, don’t forget what it says about the U.S. housing market: It’s fragile and weak.

ent spot of the yard where they weren’t disturbed. Joy turned to horror when harvesting the first to ripen – it had been attacked from behind. Savaged beyond repair, the gourd had been completely hollowed out, as if the squirrel planned to use it for a diorama. Protection was needed and I opted for the second type of squirrel control: cages of small mesh wire. These worked well, the 1-inch mesh keeping the pumpkins whole. I grew complacent, believing the squirrel was thwarted. But the lull was just the rodent changing gears, popping up where I least expected it: in the garlic. Squirrels are known for their love bulbs. To protect them, we lay chicken wire on the ground under the mulch so the marauding mammals can’t dig them up. Squirrels and their ilk aren’t supposed to like garlic or any of the allium clan; this is why they’re recommended for areas where rodents are a problem. Chicken wire works in a bulb bed, but on a raised bed where other edible plants need room meant getting new ideas about management. I turned to the experts whose suggestion was: “place crushed garlic in the area to repel squirrels.” How helpful. We have a bushy-tailed Ratatouille pulling up garlic like it’s cooking an Italian meal, and the experts want me to peel and crush the cloves for it. Instead, I’m back to chicken wire, but temporarily. Stapled over the top of the bed walls, it will keep the thief from the garlic over winter, and be easy to remove in spring, when planting season – and round two of our struggle – continues.

A leaky, un-insulated garage door may not be an obvious culprit in rising monthly utility bills, but it’s worth a second look if you have an attached garage. Replacing an older garage door with a new, energy-efficient model can reduce energy loss through the garage door by up to 71 percent, according to a comparison study conducted by Clopay engineers. “Since attached garages typically share one or two common walls with the house, any hot or cold that travels through a door will ultimately affect the adjacent living areas,” says Mark Westerfield, director of product development for garage door manufacturer Clopay Building Products. “An insulated garage door can help stabilize temperatures in the garage to reduce heat losses or gains from common house walls.” Depending on the specifics of your home and attached garage construction, a well-insulated door can help keep your unheated garage 10 to 20

degrees warmer on a cold winter day. “That can have a significant impact on the comfort of family rooms or bedrooms located above or next to the garage,” Westerfield says. Homeowners who purchase an energy-efficient garage door now through Dec. 31, 2010, will not only save on their heating and cooling bills, they may qualify for up to $1,500 in federal tax credits, thanks to the new stimulus legislation. Certain criteria apply.

The Company That Sells!


“Always There For You”



There’s a squirrel in my yard that’s seen too much of the Food Network, turning into a four-footed foodie with kleptomaniac urges. We discovered this as odd things began happening, such as our tomatoes getting stolen. This isn’t so unusual; after all, squirrels love apples as much as humans do. Then my spouse called me out to the yard, and I knew we had a problem. There, deposited on a landscaping timber at least 20 feet from the garden, was a huge beefsteak tomato, partially gnawed and discarded. “What kind of a squirrel could lift that, much less carry it this far?” my spouse whispered, alarmed. “Just look at the size of that tomato, it has to weigh at least two pounds,” he said, Carol O’Meara eyes scanning the Colorado State fence line for a University Extension Godzilla-sized squirrel to appear, “I wouldn’t want to meet that animal on a dark night.” Worry tickled my mind as, for the next month, we discovered tomatoes strewn through the yard like eggs at Easter. Had the problem stopped there things would have been fine; there were plenty of tomatoes to share. But as the summer wore on the squash and melons fell victim to the rodent’s desire. Apparently the animal couldn’t tell when the fruits were ripe, so it nibbled on each and every one to see if it was ready – none escaped this dental delving. As the fruits grew they became battle scarred; skin closing over the early wounds. We convinced ourselves that eating squirrel-chomped squash was OK, if you didn’t look at the tooth marks on the rind. The search for squirrel control turned up suggestions for repellants, with either hot pepper or predator urine. Both need to be reapplied after every rain or irrigation, and hot pepper might cause the fuzzy thief pain; I didn’t want to hurt the critter or commit to such a time-intensive means for control. We tried to wait it out, but things turned ugly. The pumpkins were the hardest hit, possibly due to their growing in a differ-

Financially savvy custom kitchens Article Resource Association

One of the greatest qualities of custom cabinetry is that it is built to your exact specifications – finish, door style and wood species, with no detail overlooked. Using time-honored construction techniques such as mortise and tenon, each cabinet is handmade, allowing you to maximize storage space so every square inch of your kitchen is utilized properly and beautifully. With custom cabinetry, the possibilities are truly endless – take, for example, the different style options: traditional, transitional, contemporary, country, colorful, small and everything in between. When choosing a custom cabinetry line, it is important to work with a professional kitchen and bath designer who will be sure no detail is forgotten. Kitchen cabinets are available in three configurations – stock, semi-custom and custom. Stock cabinetry is referred to as “off the rack;” the cabinets are mass-produced and many components are pre-assembled. The advantages of stock cabinetry are the low costs and low lead time requirements. The disadvantage of stock cabinetry is the limited number of style and design offer-

ings, making it the least flexible option. Semi-custom cabinets are manufacturerbuilt to fit your kitchen’s specifications. There are more options such as finishes and door styles compared to stock cabinetry; however, it is slightly more costly and the lead time is a bit longer. Custom cabinetry is “made to order” and is meant for you and you alone. Custom cabinetry offers superior quality and many finishes are applied by hand, ensuring consistency. Dovetailed drawers and hardwood components that are screwed and glued make for a sturdy, reliable cabinet. Custom cabinetry can also accommodate unusual spaces and floor plans. In comparison to stock and semi-custom, custom cabinetry is generally more expensive; however, often the price difference can be negligible. “Some consumers are not aware that they can achieve their dream kitchen, using custom cabinetry, for only 5 to 10 percent more than semi-custom,” says George (Butch) Achey, president of Plain & Fancy Custom Cabinetry. “We recommend that consumers work with an authorized custom cabinetry dealer in order to maximize their budget and get fully-functional cabinetry with exceptional design.”
