On the Move!

There is a favorite Nat King Cole love song “When I Fall in Love” in which the lyrics include “In this restless world we live in, love is ended before its begun”.  After rattling around in my brain every time I listen to my Nat King Cole favorites, I have come to the conclusion that […]

Reconfiguring bathrooms in an older house to maximize space

(Original photos of the bathrooms) On the Mid-Peninsula many of the homes are over seventy years old.  Some homes have been remodeled but many still have their original layout.  For many buyers, taking on the task of remodeling or more importantly reconfiguring an area in the house is difficult to do.    Drawing up plans, getting […]

Will office space survive?

Will office space survive?

Clean air, the lack of frustration at being stuck in traffic, and more productivity working from home are comments my partner Jason and I have heard many mention since Shelter-In-Place.  We found this article interesting, https://www.wired.com/story/silicon-valley-rethinks-home-office-twitter-slack/?utm_source=pocket&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=pockethits. Now, how about a new house with more room for a home office?  Give us a call and we’ll […]

Be strong!

“There are more things, Lucilius, that frighten us than injure us, and we suffer more in imagination than in reality.”  This quote from the first century AD Roman philosopher Seneca are wise words for us who are rightly feeling fearful right now.  However, as long as we follow the guidelines of “sheltering in” and just […]
