CAN I INCREASE THE WATER
PRESSURE IN MY HOUSE?
There is a simple way to increase the water
pressure in your home. A booster pump can
be installed where the waterline enters the
house. Most pumps do not require any special
plumbing connections and come with a cord
that is plugged into a receptacle. Once installed,
these pumps can increase your incoming water
pressure up to 50 pounds.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO
ADDRESS RENOVATION NEEDS
FOR EXPANDING GENERATIONAL
As college grads frequently move back home
until they land their first career-path job,
simultaneously, aging parents may also begin
to need additional help while still maintaining
some level of independence. Creating a miniapartment or in-law suite in your basement is a
good way to address both.

HOW CAN I ADD COLOR AND
PERSONALITY TO MY LIVING ROOM?
Large statement art pieces are very popular.
These large pieces add color to any room. You
can pull colors from the art and add matching
throw pillows to a sofa. Don't be afraid to mix
the fabric textures of the pillows or throws that
you incorporate into your room.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF
PROFESSIONAL CUSTOM FRAMING
VERSES PURCHASING FRAMES FROM
BIG BOX STORES?
By supporting local businesses, customers
receive more personal service. By establishing
a relationship with their framer, they receive
better design flexibility and pricing. Important
artworks stay on the premises from start to finish,
never being shipped to a warehouse outside the
client's locality or state.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO
OVER-SEED MY LAWN AND FIX BARE
Spring seems like the logical choice but it is the
second best time. Fall seeding is hands down
better. Cool temperatures, more abundant
rainfall, and 7 -8 months of root development
before the heat of the summer gives fall seeding
a much higher success rate. Fall seeding imitates
nature and often yield a success rate 2 or 3 times
higher than seeding in the spring.
