What’s the best way to describe the design-build process? Imagine you are planning your own wedding. You do the research—browsing every bride magazine in print—and creating a stack of “must haves” a mile high. Then you compile a list of people to contact and services needed (the florist, the caterer, the location arrangements, and more). Your list begins to resemble a book. You’ll have to educate yourself on provider reputations, quality of work, and reliability (You don’t want to find out a florist can’t deliver 2 hours before the wedding). To pull this off you may have to give up every spare minute of your life for the next 6 months.

What’s the key to a great remodeling project? There are a lot of important elements, including great design and quality craftsmanship. But having a great idea of what you want to accomplish is absolutely crucial to ending up with the home you’ve always dreamed of having.
It’s no accident that the main bedroom in the home is often referred to as the Master Suite. There’s something about this space that is simply superior to any other bedroom in the house. Here are four reasons Master Suites are better than average bedrooms.
California isn’t the only place dealing with water issues. Collier County—like other areas in Florida–is keeping an eye on the local water supply. In addition to watching water quality in the area, officials are tracking the amount of water available for residential use.
