I've been having this conversation frequently lately. In all reality, Mid Century Modern homes spend less time on market, even in this economy.

Though not having dealt with your particular home warranty company, I can still exclaim my frustration and perceived uselessness of these companies in general. Our home purchase came with a home warranty. In that time I've been provided contractors I normally wouldn't hire (they're preferred vendors...

Read the article. Liked it. Add another tick to the "success" column. I thought the renovation was tastefully done and well executed. I took solace and inspiration from the article, as we too are dealing with a house that has gone under the knife to the point no original elements remain. S...

Would love if you detail your project for the group. I'm planning a similar door-to-bed project but mine is further down the to-do list. I have some low hair pin legs and a sliding door headboard just begging to be married with a couple solid core doors.

You can purchase ADT yard signs and stickers on Ebay. If someone's going to "test" the system beyond that, they're coming in anyway. Signage should act as a deterrent for the average thief.

That said, we have an alarm system, and use it.
