If you’re looking for an industry success story, then this article is for you. It’s great in today’s economy to hear about the sectors that are making money and ensuring that you can reap the benefits. That’s a win-win for all that are involved.

Here’s a fun fact for the area specifically described – “Although more building permits were issued in April than March at 108 to 91, the value of those construction permits was slightly lower at $2,668,720 compared to $2,948,514.” Check out this link for more information.

That can be the deal breaker, as we’ve shared in the past, for those who are putting off work that in the long-term, probably will only improve the value of your home. Consider it an investment in yourself. In this article, found in The Washington Post, we learn that the national average spent in some countries can be right around is $20,000, just for a small kitchen.

How To Prevent A Home Renovation From Wrecking Your Relationship
Finally, if the stressor of a home project for you isn’t the dollar sign but your significant other, then this article is definitely for you. There is a reason (we’ve said it before and we’ll say it again) that home renovations are so high up on the list of stressors in life. It’s because there are a lot of emotions associated with such large-scale projects. Feelings get involved. Feelings get hurt. And while that’s not totally unavoidable, there are definitely examples of power couples who made it through the tunnel just fine and lived to tell the tale. One such comes to mind and is chronicled here. That’s Chip and Joanna Gaines, who shot to fame with their own television show and pioneered the way for many that are on television right now. They know that when the work is done, it’s just as important to focus on each other, as well as their adorable children. And that’s exactly what they do!
