The Thanksgiving and Winter Holidays, along with the increasingly early onset of night, present certain increased safety concerns to a homeowner. Many of us will soon be putting up holiday decorations. And while we hope most of us at least have more sense than Clark Griswold in Christmas Vacation, the decorations, lights, and increased fireplace use creates an increased fire risk. With this in mind, here are some safety tips for the holidays.

With November here and Thanksgiving only three and a half weeks away, many of us are trying to get a start on planning for the holiday festivities. Even when planning ahead, however, the stress of hosting large numbers of family and friends for Thanksgiving dinner can become overwhelming.
October saw four great Timberpeg open homes, but November is just around the corner and has its fair share of open homes as well. While October’s open homes showcased Timberpeg homes in New England, the Midwest and the Southeast, this coming weekend's homes are in the Mid-Atlantic.
Last month, we celebrated the opening of “cabin season” by featuring the Foxtail cabin. This plan is great for short getaways and packs a great number of features into its 835 square feet of space. If you are looking for a bit more space, then the Blue Mist cabin extends the basic plan of the Foxtail while maintaining the overall layout and charm.
While we opined last month that fall was the perfect season for a Timberpeg cabin, it turns out it is also the perfect season for Timberpeg open homes. This weekend saw great open homes in New Hampshire and North Carolina designed by architects who are also Timberpeg independent representatives. This coming weekend, we will feature two open homes in the scenic Grand Traverse Bay area of Michigan.
While we believe you can get a great feel for the joys of owning a Timberpeg home by reading this blog or talking with our wonderful designers, undoubtedly the best way to get a feel for our homes is to experience one firsthand. This coming weekend, we have two open homes in different regions of the country.
It’s easy to spend a great amount of time on this blog talking about large houses, since their many features provide a great number of topics to discuss. Smaller houses, however, are also interesting topics since they often have innovative features to make the greatest use of available space.
Last week, we covered the pros and cons of the three major door materials: steel, wood and fiberglass. While choosing the material for your door is an important first step, there are even more choices to be had when selecting a door style. Whether you long for a traditional or contemporary look, there is a door to meet your needs. Here is a review of some of the more popular style choices.
Since your front door is the gateway to your home, it creates a first impression that defines your home to residents alike. Due to this important role in defining the home, it is no wonder that front-door replacements are consistently the home renovation project with the highest return on investment. With the many choices in exterior doors, just selecting the perfect door can be a daunting task.
