Seriously, at the risk of sounding like a broken record, let me repeat and let me refer to what I am sure seems to you my constant and annoying repetition of this particular statement:
Last week I made a delivery to a local countertop/cabinet businesses and in walking through the showroom, I ran my hand across a full-size kitchen island countertop displayed in a vignette and immediately said to the owner, “Oh, my gosh, what type of material is this?” I was told it was granite. I said, “Granite?” with disbelief and skepticism.
The article in The Daily Courier on July 24, “A movement to end homelessness in Prescott,” made me realize that we are a movement of people creating events and random acts of kindness to spread hope, love, compassion and light.
We are remodeling our kitchen and new countertops are planned. Of course, there is a little conflict between my husband and myself — he wants granite and I am thinking quartz. Sandy, help us make up our mind! Tom and Sheila, Prescott.
This past week several calls rang in from homeowners wanting to know what the cost per square foot is to rebuild.
Not quite taking the market by storm, however, widespread popularity is rapidly gaining.
July stated off with a thump and a whack as they say.
Last week our column discussed defensible space and stressed that protecting your home from wildfire starts with you. Since wildfire is a real and an ever present danger, it is important for our readers to know about Prescott Area Wildland Urban Interface Commission (PAWUIC).
We had a delightful rain this past weekend, however, with our continued dry conditions and lack of moisture our area still exhibits prime conditions for a fire.
This past week a call came in from a local Realtor who inquired about “popcorn” ceilings.
