A Guide to Choosing the Right Roller for You Paint Project

A Guide to Choosing the Right Roller for You Paint Project
By Stephen Fanuka


This post is sponsored by Purdy Professional Painting Tools, but all thoughts below are my own.

Not all paint rollers are alike. That's exactly why we find ourselves overwhelmed by all the choices when standing in the roller aisle of the paint store. Confronted with rollers of all shapes and sizes, we end up just grabbing the cheap economy bag — thinking we saved some money — and move onto the paint aisle. When in fact, we effectively ruined our paint project with cheap, inferior rollers. 

So before your next visit to the paint store, read this guide that explains everything you need to know about choosing the right type of paint roller for the job.

First off, I'm a true believer in quality paint tools and Purdy has been the leader in creating durable and professional paint tools since 1925. When it comes to finding the right roller for the job, Purdy produces a product I can count on for professional results — every time.

So what makes one paint roller superior to another? It should be a product that always delivers a great finish. All my professional painter friends will agree: invest in quality tools and it will save you time and money in the long run by not having to do the same job twice.

Components of a Paint Roller

There are two parts to a paint roller. Let's start with the roller cage itself. This includes the handle and the ribs that rotate the roller. I prefer a roller with a contoured grip handle and a plastic rib cage. The cheaper rollers use cardboard instead of plastic ribs. Make sure you're comfortable holding the roller before you buy it. The more comfortable the grip, the less likelihood of cramping when painting for an extended period of time. 

If you’re looking for a versatile frame that fits different roller sizes, try the Purdy Premium Adjustable Frame. Not only does it fit all standard roller covers ranging from 12 to 18 inches, but it also features an easy latch system for quick adjustment and a unique angle design which allows for greater coverage with less effort.

A roller cover is the tube-shaped piece that paints the surface and fits around the rib cage of the roller. A quality roller cover is made with water-resistant solvent glue, so that the fabric on the roller stays on instead of falling apart on your wall when painting. All professional painters insist on this. 

Determining Your Roller Width

Now let's talk about the roller sizes to consider. There are two things to compare: first is the width of the roller.

·         Mini (4-inch): is used for hard to reach places, painting woodwork, cabinets and trim. 

·         Then you have the 9, 12 and 18-inch wide rollers. I like the 12-inch for walls and ceilings. My feeling is that the 9-inch isn’t large enough and the 18-inch is too heavy over an extended period of time.

What Nap Size to Use?
Once you've determined the width, then you need to consider the “nap” size, or the thickness of the roller cover. The surface and the type of finish you're looking for is what will determine what nap to use.

Remember, the thicker the nap, the denser it is and the more paint the roller will hold. This means reaching into the paint tray less. Once you understand nap sizes, you'll understand why that is. Here's a breakdown of the major nap sizes. 

·         1/4 inch: My team and I use this on new drywall and woodwork. This is also the nap to use if you want a smooth surface finish. It holds the least amount of paint but the finish is extraordinary.

·         3/8 inch: This size is good for previously painted surfaces and also when painting eggshell and matte finishes. This is the preferred nap size used on professional jobs.

·         1/2 inch: This works best for previously painted surfaces that have some texture to them. This nap size will also leave noticeable stipple marks. A lot of old houses have stipple paint, so this is a good choice when trying to match an old existing finish.

·         3/4 inch: This size holds the most paint. It’s good for concrete, brick and any surfaces that have crevices and pores. These types of surfaces require a lot of paint to truly cover them.

Hint: If you're looking for the ultimate shiny and smooth gloss paint finish, consider using a roller made of micro fiber like the Purdy Ultra Finish Roller Cover.

Also, stay away from foam rollers, unless you’re using them for arts and crafts projects. Now that you’re a paint roller connoisseur, find that confused individual standing in the roller aisle and assure them it's going to be ok.

Pay it forward and paint it with a Purdy.








































Beat the Next Blackout

Every daily task we perform requires electricity in some way or another. Electric power is so essential to our daily lives that blackout often make everything seem impossible. Super storms like Hurricane Sandy in 2012 left and estimated 8 million people without power. Not being able to power phones, radios, or television can leave you feeling useless. Back up generators are the only solution to prepare you for these power disasters.    
                The choices of generators vary by different sizes and fuel supplies to work with your home’s individual attributes and location. When determining what size of generator, you should think about powering only central parts of the home. Popular Mechanics website has several tips and resources like the chart below to help determine generator output.

This will help you calculate your power demand, and choose the correct generator. Think about keeping only kitchens and heating/cooling systems powered as a must. The top manufactures of generators like Briggs & Stratton and Kohler, also have useful online guides to help you arrive at the right generator with the ability to supply your home.

The Path I suggest taking is having a stand by stationary generator, professionally installed, and powered by natural gas. Its reliable, efficient, safe, and a smart solution. A professional installation offers features like blackout detection which can automatically provide power to your home without a moment’s notice. Modern models run virtually silent by burning reliably supplied natural gas.
Make sure to use the resources available to you to find the right generator distributor and be sure to find a qualified licensed professional because this is not a job for armatures. Check local zoning laws to see if there are restrictions and the requirements making a home upgrade such as this. With bad weather, large demands, and now hacking, make sure you prepare your home to not feel powerless during the next prolonged blackout. 


Making your boiler work Smarter, not Harder


Are you repetitively pressing the up bottom on your thermostat?  Have you realized how much it’s costing you? According to energy.gov 45% of your energy bills is a direct cost of heating your home. That should make you wonder how efficient is your heating system?
There are two major components to any heating system, the heat source and the distribution method. Take a moment to think about the following:
  
                What exactly produces the Heat in our homes?  
Most of us have a boiler in our basement. Boilers heat water by burning oil or natural gas.  

Where does the Hot water go?
 It’s carried continuously around your home and its heat radiates through fixtures like baseboard heaters or iron radiators. 

 Most systems have a life span of 15-30 years, but here are 3 tips to increase efficiency and extend the life expectancy of your dollars.
1)       Programmable thermostats can save an estimated 30% on your energy bill according to archnews.com. Program your thermostat to kick on an hour before you get home and go off an hour before you leave in the mornings. 7 day thermostats allow you to program different settings for each day of the week.
2)      Insulated Glass windows and doors can reduce the heat loss in side your furnished rooms. There are different energy ratings for windows and doors, make sure to pick the one right for your home and budget. You can also increase the efficiency of your existing openings by checking the following; inspect for large gaps around openings, weather strips and door sweeps should fit tightly, replacing worn weather stripping, caulk around the sheetrock edge and the frame of the opening. Doors entering basements, garages and attics are the biggest culprits of heat loss.
3)      Bleed the Air out of your system. Air in your pipes is just wasted time, space, and energy. It’s also most likely the reason for the knocking sounds and jumping radiators.


These three tips to increase heat efficiency can drastically cut down on the number of times your boiler kicks on every day. Reducing the amount of work your boiler does and still retaining the heat it produces could turn your breezy home into high efficiency home.


Prepare for Autumn

Autumn is here once more and not even Halloween can scare you from continuing your outdoor fun. Everyone enjoys putting out the pine cones and pumpkin, but the dramatic temperature changes can lead to a spectrum of weather conditions. Taking a few steps to organize and protect your home can prevent some rough weather hazards.  
One of the first things to start with is putting away the outdoor furniture. If you need a spot to store these items gather them in a corner on the side of your house. This will keep them from blowing over. Cover them with a large tarp and tie them together to further secure them. This will keep your things dry, clean, and secured. It’s important to do a good job otherwise this can result in a dangerous situation in high winds.
Hoses, sprinkles, and fountains should also be put away for protection. This especially hold true in regions where snow and freezing is possible. It’s important to purge all the water out of these systems to keep them from freezing and potently breaking. The importance of knowing the locations to the valves that shut off the water supply to your water systems cannot be overstated. Often we can find shutoffs behind access doors on the inside our homes. 
Access doors that are located on exterior walls can also give you visual access to the insulation on those walls. Try and determine what the insulation is composed of, its thickness, and the abundance of it. Also check around the openings to your home to make sure you don't feel any cold blasts of air or see any evidence or water damage. Panels, Windows, and Doors to the exterior should be insulated. Inspect the condition of their weather stripping or plastic sealants. 


 Our homes are there to shelter us. Show your appreciation for your home by helping it to have a higher life expectancy. Follow these tips to prepare your home for autumn.  


The Importance of a Quality Paint Job


I've been a contractor for over 25 years. One of the many things I've learned throughout the years is that I can build the most beautiful homes but without a quality paint job, I will fail. Your job is only as good as the paint job itself. This is what the client sees at the end. Now doing a quality paint job consists of 3 things. 

1) A person who knows how and loves to paint. It requires patience and it is an art in itself. 

2) Quality paint. I’d say that's a given. 

3) Quality tools to get the perfect paint finish and getting the finish on and done in an adequate time frame so you can get the job done. This a subject that's not discussed enough. To the pros out there, whether you are just starting out or have been doing this art for years, this is key. As much as you want to do a great job, you also have to earn a living. You want to finish and get to the next job. Leaving the client happy and ready to refer you to that next job.

I always tell my clients that out of all the trades I work with, the painter’s job is the hardest. By the time it's their turn to do the job, the client has no more money for extras, no more patience, and the painter has to make everybody before them look amazing. It's already hard and you haven't even started. 

Quality tools. It’s never discussed enough in my opinion. A good tool is like a good car. You want it to get you where you want to be quickly and without issues. Always. Me and my titans don't have time to just keep changing things up. If something works we stick with it. My tools for paint have been Purdy for many years now. They're reasonable in cost, very accessible at stores and they last. Here are some of my favorite tools of the paint trade that allow me to finish in time. Makes my paint look great and most importantly, helps keep me around to do another beautiful paint job tomorrow.

My favorite tool by far is the Purdy Power Lock Extension Pole. No painter should be without this. It's adjustable, locks, it's the lightest pole I’ve ever used. This is important when you have your arms above your head all day painting. If you aren't comfortable you cannot do a great job. 

Long Handle Wire Brushes: helps us tidy up areas of peeling paint, which is key to good prepping prior to any painting. I use it on walls, wood, even metal surfaces. 

Speaking of preparation. It's important to have different types and sizes of prep tools for scraping surfaces, walls, windows, trims, and doors. Applying compound for joints, holes, and more. I love that if I go to www.purdy.com they have a Tool Selector category that helps you choose the right tools for your specific needs. It even helps you choose the right brush and rollers for the specific finish you desire. 

It's important to know that all brushes and rollers are not the same. You need to know what's best for your job. If you don't know what you have in your hands you can't assure yourself of success at the end of the job.

Here's a Purdy brush chart you can follow:





Lastly, after a hard days work, it’s time to clean up for the day and ready yourself for tomorrow's job. 

Brush cleaners: We never waste anything and we always clean our brushes. To clean my Purdy brushes, I use the Purdy brush cleaner. That's money. 

You're only as good as today's job. Working hard, giving the clients what they paid for and doing a quality job will allow you to do what you love again tomorrow. Most importantly, your clients will talk about yesterday for a long time after you are gone. That's how I roll. Now let's get to work. 



What To Do After A Storm







What To Do After A Storm



We can do everything we can to help protect our home, but sometimes it’s still not enough. Aside from the condition of our home and geographic location. Fate plays a role as well when it comes to storms and the damage it leaves behind. Storms carry an arsenal of methods of destruction, but its favorite weapons are bye far…water

We all have read about how to fix and maintain, but when a storm delivers that knock out blow we are not yet ready to go about the way we have been taught just yet. We need someone to pick us off the ground first. You need to know where and how to begin sometime. Lets start…..

Insurance

Hopefully you had placed all your important documents in a fire / water tight lock box.
Its time to get it…If not…find it !!

·        Read your policy before calling your broker. Know your policy inside and out.

·        Ask your broker if you can take photos and start the remedial process prior to inspection of damage. Some storms leave a large trail of damage which may cause the insurance adjustor from getting to you right away.

·        Deal with one insurance person. Take there name and extension. Become friendly so it’s treated as a personal matter on their part.

·        Hopefully you have a video or photos of the home prior to the damage.

·        If in the event you feel the insurance company has not offered enough to cover the expense. Know it is your right to request arbitration for a potential better settlement.

Fact:     Most homeowner policies have a hurricane policy included. Did you know that
The deductible is about 10% of the total damage ? That means you would be on the hook for it. If the National weather service declares the storm a hurricane, the deductible goes into effect. If it’s anything other than a hurricane, then the deductible remains as your policy states.

Inspect the Outside

·        Walk around the house and seek out any loose wires that may be live.

·        Smell for any gas leaks.

·        Check the foundation for any structural cracks.



·        Check below to see if the dirt below the foundation has been shifted. If this is the case over time the house could develop a crack. If any dirt is missing, re grade and remember to grade away from the house

·        Check the remaining house for any other structural deficiencies.

·        If you do find any of the above. Do not enter the house without a professional looking at it first.

Flooding

Many cases during a storm the basement will get flooded. If it’s just a bit of water. Use a Wet / Dry shop vac to pump the water out.. A mop may due just as well. Do this ASAP

In Some cases there may be alot of water. If this is the case. You may want to hire a professional. In any event you need to be concerned with mold and bacteria

·        If you need to walk in the water, be sure to wear rubber boots and rubber gloves. The water contains bacteria that could be very detrimental to your health.

·        It’s important to clean your hands with soap and boiled water to disinfect after

Remedial Clean

Once the water is cleaned out, it’s all about remedial. Mainly making sure we do not have any mold growth.

·        Once the water is removed, first thing you need to do is ventilate the room. Open a window, set up standing fans and de humidifiers in the room. The quicker you dry the room, the less mold that is likely to form.

·        Basic rule of thumb is if the item is porous, it can grow mold from within. Therefore the item should be thrown away. For example, large rugs, couches ( Although if it has a sentimental value you could have it reupholstered). If it is non porous, it can be cleaned by using a ½ cup of bleach for every 2.5 gallons of water. Example of non porous would be wood. Dishes and utensils can also be cleaned with the proper solution., metal, ceramic as well.

·        All water that saturated the sheetrock or plaster lathe should be removed  18” above the water line .When the wall is open be sure to scrub the inside of the floor and tracks with bleach and water.  This is the way we avoid mold from growing behind the walls.


·        If your outlets were submerged under water, the bacteria can affect the wiring over time and could cause a fire later down the road. Take no chances and replace.

·        Chances are your furnace may need an adjustment. I suggest a professional for this.

·        If your septic tank is flooded or under water. It can be used again after the water is removed. As long as it is not damaged or the sewage is not surfacing.

·        When cleaning, use the 2 bucket system. One bucket filled with cleaning solution and water and the other with just water. Clean with solution bucket and rinse with water bucket each and every time.

·        Once you are done cleaning, you should use a disinfectant on the surface as well.

·        The carpet may be dry cleaned or not depending on the size, but the padding is to be thrown away. Area rugs are a good example.


Safety

·        Use proper precautions and safety. I recommend wearing 3M safety glasses and the N95 respirator for debris and the P100 respirator for mold and asbestos.. Visit them at
Shop3m.com


Its never easy dealing with any type of damage to your home but always remember. No matter how bad it is, it could have always been worse. Follow these steps and soon you will stand. Before you know it, you will be walking towards better times. Stronger from the shit that just happened.

How To Defend Your Castle During A Hurricane


Hurricane season officially starts in May and unofficially ends in November. Depending
on your region, you may or may not be prone to this nasty weather. Even if you are not, hurricanes are unpredictable. All it takes is one storm to destroy everything you own.
Rather than take a chance, its important to know how to keep your home protected and your family safe.


1)   Roofs do get damaged from hurricanes but what most people don’t understand is what causes the roof to fly off the house. The term is called the “Push & Pull” effect. If wind enters the home, for example through a window or door. The wind creates a “push” into the home. Now combine this with the swirling winds above the home that’s “pulling” the air up…. The wind inside the home heads towards the roof. This is when the roof comes off. There are three areas of concern.

a)     Doors: Keep all doors locked and tighten all the hinges to make sure the door is not loose

b)    Windows: if you do not have “storm impact” rated windows or shutters. Consider
Boarding up the windows with plywood. If you do live in a hurricane prone area. You should number the boards corresponding to each window and store them for future use. Don’t forget to lock your windows.

c)     Garage: This is most likely where the wind will enter. Most garage doors are made with lightweight material that’s not reinforced. Causing the wind to push the door into the garage. You can easily support the doors with 2” x 4” wood or steel. Mounted to the floor of the garage against the bottom edge of the door. IF you do live in a hurricane prone area. Buy a hurricane-reinforced system.


2)   Clean your gutters of any debris so storm water can exit easily. Repair any loose shingles from the roof. I always tell my clients to apply a bead of caulk rated for hi wind at the edge of the roofline where it meets the house. So if a gust of wind would hit. The glue will help hold down the edge of the roof from lifting and breaking off.


3)    Trim your trees. Common damage occurs form projectiles that get lifted from the wind. Dead branches and limbs are no exception.


4)    Store all backyard items inside. This includes all flowerpots and garbage cans.
Have a talk with your neighbors and all agree to do this. Last thing you need is your neighbors furniture coming through your window. I’m sure your neighbor,
friend or foe will agree to this. It’s about keeping the outside projectiles at a minimum. What can’t go inside, tie or weigh down.


5)    Confirm with your insurance carrier that you are covered.

6)    Take inventory and photos of your inside belongings in the event a disaster would occur.

7)    Keep all-important papers somewhere safe and together. I would suggest a fire rated safety box.

8)    Know where your main water valve is and all other important shut off valves like your gas. So in the event you need to shut something off you can.

9)    Keep a weeks worth of medication, bottled water and food in the house. Have batteries and flash lights ready in the event it is needed. Charge all cell phones and anything else you may need prior to a storm


IM not saying the end of the world is near…lol…Chances are during a storm you and your family will sit together to watch a movie and share some popcorn.

 I’m just saying ……

That popcorn will taste so much better if you know you’ve done everything you can to protect your 2 greatest investments…. Your family and your home!



           



Dress Your Pool For Success




Dress Your Pool For Success

Few key elements distinguish a back yard. Landscape, lighting, Custom BBQ systems.
One thing defines a back yard. That would be your pool. A pool is a hole in the ground filled with water until you decide to raise the bar and dress it up. If you are ready to take your pool to the next level. Here are some cool ideas that will add style to your pool

1)      Adding colors to your pool or around your pool will give it that pop you desire.

a)      Add a coping border around the perimeter of the pool. This will enhance the shape of the pool. I love colored concrete or flag stone. You’ll need a local mason or a very inspired DIY ’er in the family for this,

b)   Adding colored glass mosaics onto any vertical surface like the Jacuzzi
      wall or the pool side of the cabana will make the yard scream with pride.
      Go to artistictile.com for some of the nicest tiles I’ve ever seen.
    
2)      Add stone and gravel between the fence and pool. Don’t stop there. Shape the pattern. It doesn’t have to be straight forward. Use your imagination. I love White gravel its goes with any landscape. It says enough but doesn’t take over the space and light really reflects well off it. Go to your local nursery or homedepot.com

3)   Now that you have some gravel. Consider some shrubs and bushes but keep them far enough away from the pool water so that the chlorinated water does not kill the new vegetation. Add some summer flowers for color and you’ve just added your Zen to the pool

3)      Half the party is in the daytime. The other half is at night. If you want to add 100% more fun & time by the pool. Light it up. I like to combine pool lights with landscape lighting. You can go to homedepot.com for the landscape lighting and check out ledlights.com for some very cool LED lights that can be added to the pool that do not require pre punch out holes or vinyl replacement. They even stock floating lights. I like LED lights because they are the only type of lights that can change colors.

4)      If you don’t have an outside stereo system, go to amazon.com and get yourself the Schooners II Weatherproof Wireless Full Range Speaker system. It plugs into an IPod, CD or computer. Its wireless with a 150 foot sound range, Has a 7 hour battery life and comes with Disco lights. If the pool is going to dance. It may as well dance to a beat

You can have justa pool….or you can have a sexy pool. The choice is now yours


     


Save Your Kitchen & Bath



 Save Your Kitchen & Bath

 Buying a home is a very personal matter, both financially and mentally. It's most likely the biggest expense you will ever incur, other than education for the kids. Between the two, it can be a strain on the pocket and mind. If you want to know how to avoid that, then read on….

After you buy your home the most likely next step will be adapting your home to your personal style, otherwise known as renovating or home improvement. Most people never consider the expense of renovating when buying their first home. This can put the home owner over the edge if not taken into consideration when getting the financials together.

Considering the cost of the home improvements required BEFORE you buy can make the difference between affording your mortgage and struggling to make the payments.
Consider ...

1.         Value of the property as is when purchasing. Is it possible you're paying too much due to an unmotivated or unrealistic seller?
2.         How much money is left to renovate immediately after purchasing the home and can you stay within your budget ? This can be easier said than done. You will need to be committed.
3.         Will the renovation increase the homes value and if yes, by how much?

Now...you should be aware when renovating, that the most expensive interior aspects are your kitchen and baths. Generally 40% of home renovation costs are spent in these areas.
This is where you should pay attention !!!!  If the kitchen or bath is not falling apart you can spruce both areas for a lot cheaper than gutting and starting over.Essentially saving you a lot of dinero
Here is how…

Kitchen

1. Add crown molding to the top of the cabinets or the room itself.

2. Added new back splash tile. If the original back splash is sturdy, you may be able to install the new right on top of the old

3. Added some nice new cabinet pulls or knobs.

4. Buy new appliances. Make sure they fit the existing spaces prior.

5. Paint or faux the existing cabinets. Maybe consider random stencil.

6. If the existing doors & drawer panels are in very bad shape. Consider replacing just the doors and drawer fronts.

7. Add dividers inside the drawers.

8. New counter tops. A lot of materials to choose from and many are affordable.

9. Polish the existing stone counter. You will save a bundle and it will look brand new.

10. Re grout the current tile floor & back splash. Think maybe a contrast grout color from the tile.

11. Refinish the wood floors.

12. Repaint the kitchen walls. Enhance(1) wall with a completely outside the box color.

13. Add battery powered under cabinet lights.

14. Replace your light fixtures.

Bathroom

1. Replace the sinks, faucets, toilets and install a good pressurized shower head. I love Speakman heads.

2. Re-grout the tiles.

3. Replace the cheap sliding shower doors with new and better quality that has the least metal and the most glass for your buck.

4. Replace any broken tiles & repair any loose tiles.

5. Add new light fixtures.Add a dimmer to the current fixture.

6. Get new stone vanity tops or re polish the current

7. Clean up the vanity or re paint it.

8. Consider outside the wet area a venetian plaster finish instead of tiles

9. Add down light to the ceiling. If the ceiling is dropped.

10. Add an Apple docking station. Better to listen to music than to sing sometimes…lol

11. Swap out the vanity knobs.

12. Add a nice framed mirror

13. Swap out the outlets within 24” of the sink to GFI. (Ground fault interrupters)

14. Wall paper the walls outside the wet are with a vinyl paper. Better yet paper the ceiling only instead. It’s the 5th wall.


Bottom line is this. Your home may be your castle but if you don’t count your pennies and be careful how you spend. Your castle may belong to the bank one day and that would suck!

Think twice and make the right choices that suits you !!  


Back Yard Utopia

Having renovated some incredible residences in my career. I’ve learned many things. One very important thing is to always stay ahead of the curve. I’m always looking for the coolest things to build in peoples homes. Something that will distinguish their home from others.
Summer is here and your focus should shift from the inside to the outside. Hence
It’s all about your back yard. We all have some type of cooking station, so im going to assume we already have one or want one, here’s some other great ideas that will make your back yard a place you will never want to leave.

1)                  Pizza Ovens.  Go to Cambridgepavers.com and get a ready made unit that your contractor can have installed just in time for dinner. Not only will you be enjoying home made pizza that will be ready in less than 10 minutes. You may also grill vegetables, bake bread and other tasty delights.

2)                  Fire pits. Gas or log burning. There’s nothing like having an after dinner drink or making smores with the kids over a nice stone fire pit. Cambridgepavers.com has many ready made units available. If fire pits are too basic then go all out and get the fire place unit. Now that’s what it’s all about!

3)                  If you cant bring the house to the stream. You may consider bringing the stream to the house. There aren’t many things in nature more beautiful than a crackling brook with a waterfall. When landscaping the back yard, plan on multiple brooks hi lighted by a main water fall. Serenity and admiration is just a stone throw away. Yoga station is optional. Just kidding ! You got to have one !

 Now that we have the visual aspect, we need the fun!

When I think of fun outside, what comes to mind are games. Why not take an idea that’s been in the home for centuries and bring that outside? Go to backyardfun.com and get yourself an outdoor pool table. Don’t stop there. Why not have multiple game stations ?
Pick up a ping pong table and a Foos ball table while you do your one stop shopping online.

Now you may have a person who wants to remain seated. We all have one of them around at each & every event. If that’s the case, get an all weather flat screen TV and don’t forget to add the gaming console to it. In the evening, you want the kids visible while you’re enjoying your company. Picture them behaving in the back yard only feet away while you are having that select cognac with your friends. That’s the good life


Your home is your castle. So why not treat it like one. Whether it be indoors, or in this case YOUR outdoors
