Happy Friday!! Friday is probably my favorite day of the week. It’s when I can get stuff done. Saturdays are good, too, but Friday is my day. It’s when I can feel like I can finally relax after a week of running and going and doing. We live in such a fast-paced world today that we often forget how long processes can take and how long things can be dragged out for. So, it’s always best to make sure that you have everything in place so that there aren’t any unnecessary delays.
Spring is the time when you want to have your plan and everything ready to go to start your build. Many times, we hear from clients that they wanted to break ground on their home this month or next month, but there is some sort of delay. There are many things that you need to have in place in order to have your home built. While its not the first step, having a house plan already purchased is going to make the rest of the process move a lot smoother. So, take a look at some of our newest plans and see if one of them catches your eye.
This past Sunday was a very important day in weather forecasting, but I think that it got overshadowed a bit by the Super Bowl. It was Groundhog’s Day and whether or not you believe that a rodent can predict the weather, I choose to believe that this year he may have been on the right track. This winter has been cold, wet and horrible. We didn’t get any snow and, thankfully, we didn’t get any ice, but it rained. And it rained. And it rained some more. And I think its going to rain most of today. And the temperatures have been on that hairs edge away from frigid.
Well this Sunday is the big game. This year the Superbowl is featuring the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers. Two teams that haven’t seen the Superbowl in a long time and honestly, I think I would be stoked for either one of them to win. So, this year, instead of focusing on the rivalry between the teams or which team might be better or worse than the other, lets just cook some great food and enjoy the game!
This week the weather has been positively nasty. It's been cold, wet and it just won't stop raining. I'm hoping that next week that silly groundhog doesn't see his shadow and that we can get spring in here a bit sooner. That would be so nice. Warm breezes, the sun warming your face, being able to wear flip flops and roll the windows down on the car. Ah... It will be glorious. Until then, let's look at some great new plans. That should cheer us up.
We love when we get to release new plans! Sometimes we get to that pretty often. Sometimes it takes a little while for them to be finished. Luckily, I have several new ones that I get to show off this week! So, here are some great new plans for you to feast your eyes on.
For years, I resisted setting up my Google assistant on my phone. I always thought of it as something that would be listening to everything that I said and did and be kind of invasive. Recently, I found myself needing a pair of extra hands. So, I set up my Google assistant on my phone and started using it for tons of different things. I didn’t realize how many different tasks that little program can do. Did you know that you can now install things that are controlled by your assistant or Siri to change things in your house?
As the new decade beckons, we find ourselves looking at trends that are going to be the new norm. Last year was the year of the modern farmhouse and that idea has reigned supreme for several years now. Now we are looking for something a bit more complicated. One of the newest trends in home design and house planning is not a style or a type of house, but rather a feature that is being sought after. People are looking for a large, efficient kitchen so that they can make their gourmet dreams a reality.
Now that the new decade is beginning its time for some changes. Time to break out the old exercise equipment and get started on those new year’s resolutions. Time to get fit and to make sure we drink enough water. I’m going to get started on that as soon as I finish browsing these awesome house plans.
From eye catching chevron patterns in every color of the rainbow to the minimalist movement inspired by the Scandinavian winters, this decade has been a blur of interior decorating trends. While I think that the decade will be remember more for the Modern Farmhouse movement and the resurgence of the Mid-Century aesthetic, there were many other phases and styles that came through during this time.
