R&A Magazine - Winter 2021 - 5

In this issue...
'Good things come to those who wait'...so
says an old English proverb. While that adage
may not apply to all of life's happenings, it
certainly paid off for the homeowners in this
edition's cover story. As you'll learn, patience
for them paid off-BIG time!

Today's Dream...Tomorrow's Reality

After years of looking for their forever home
and coming very close on settling on a less
ideal fit (on two occasions), the dream
property finally surfaced! While the setting
and neighborhood were absolutely perfect,
the 1988 home-although very well-built
with some great features-needed extensive
updating along with some cosmetic work to
match the family's lifestyle and taste.
And while this quest for their forever home
tested their patience, it didn't take long
at all for them to find a builder to handle
their upcoming project. Like so many of the
homeowners we met over the years whose
project we showcased in our cover stories,
they felt a strong personal connection early
on with the builder that they selected. From
their very first meeting, the homeowners
were so impressed with Darryl Bollinger and
his team at Middle Creek Builders, that they
hired them without hesitation. And as you'll
hear from them, the connection they initially
felt with MCB only got stronger as the project
progressed. In the end, they couldn't be
more pleased with their selection.
The Feature articles in this edition include
discussions on fireplaces as well as window
treatments. Both are very informative and
contain plenty of eye candy to complement
the narrative. Our Ask the Experts panel once
again provides some very helpful advice.
Topics this time include: garden planning that
will help ensure that your investment grows
in beauty and value; things to consider in
selecting a toilet; how to make your outdoor
living space more usable; and advice on what
causes drains to clog. Lastly, in The Gallery,
we have an attractive spread of kitchen and
bath makeovers.
In closing, I'd like to once again put in a plug
for the local home improvement professionals and suppliers who advertise in this magazine. THEIR support in the form of advertising
makes R&A Magazine possible-as well as
FREE to you. You can show YOUR support
by including them among those you contact
when shopping for home improvement
services and products. And while you're at it,
let them know that you appreciate
their R&A participation.
