R&A Magazine - Spring 2022 - 5

In this issue...
For the second consecutive time, this edition's cover story
showcases a beautiful full-basement remodel. And although
both basement projects have unique features and design differences,
some may be wondering why R&A would choose to
feature similar-type projects in back-to-back editions? Why
not mix them up so that each new cover story has a different
project type? Fair questions.
Truth be told, the choice of the cover-story project actually
comes from the builder/remodeler being featured. I have
no particular interest in interfering in their decision making
or establishing a cover-story schedule based on the type of
project. Instead, I'm all in for the builder to choose a project
that they are particularly proud of and would like to share
with our readers. If that means a repeat-so be it. And given
the large number of unfinished and/or poorly designed or
underutilized basements that exist throughout the county,
I'm thinking more are on the way.
As you'll see starting on page 26, this edition's project completed
by Metzler Home Builders is certainly one for them to
be proud of-very proud. In addition to the happy homeowners
becoming raving fans (Metzler's primary goal), the
outstanding work performed by the Metzler team was recognized
as a winning entry in the most recent Pillar Awards
competition sponsored by the Building Industry Association
(BIA) of Lancaster County.
Moving on, the FEATURE articles in this edition include one
on the many benefits of working with a trusted building
material supplier submitted by GR Mitchell while the other
showcases a major interior makeover completed in phases to
minimize family disruption by Alliance Custom Cabinetry. The
GR Mitchell article provides great insight on things to consider
in planning and executing a successful home improvement
project whereas the Alliance piece provides a narrative description
of each phase of their beautiful makeover.
Our Ask ThE ExPERTs topics this time includes: the pros
and cons of undertaking a major renovation versus doing a
complete tear down and rebuild (TK Building & Design);
exploring options for getting more use of your patio area
during the dog-days of summer (Kreider Canvas Service); and
fresh decorating ideas to help sweep away your winter blues
(Heritage Design Interiors).
In THE GALLERY we have two outdoor-themed spreads-the
first showcasing a very beautiful array of project photos
submitted by Hanselman Landscape & Gardens along with an
assortment of great looking and very functional (garage saving)
sheds built by Fox Country Sheds. (For those who enjoy
profound philosophy along with a splash of humor, check out
the 'happiness' message among the shed photos.)
Lastly, once again, let me remind you that R&A is
made possible by the support of our
advertisers. You can show your
support by calling them first
come project time.
