Contemporary Living Room by Dc Metro Interior Designers & Decorators Kelly Porter  

After reading countless articles, it appears that a real tree is a more environmentally friendly option. Fake trees are made with PVC and many have traces of lead meaning they can be toxic.

We have now been living with the remodel for 5 weeks and believe me, are ready for it to be done. Unfortunately it looks like we won't be finished until early December now and not back upstairs in time for Thanksgiving which was our original goal. If things had gone as planned, the electricians would have come first, followed by the plumber, the hardwood floor company, the drywallers and finally the cabinets. As you can imagine, it has not gone as planned and the moral of this blog is that while a contractor will try to keep everything on schedule, expect things to not go as planned and that you are going to have to be very flexible along the way.

As of today, this is how our kitchen looks which is a huge improvement over a week ago. The cabinets have

I've been an active Real Estate investor in Denver for the past nine years and I have never seen a better time to own rental property in Denver. Two factors make investing in Denver Real Estate very attractive right now. First, rental rates are going through the roof with no sign of stopping and second, interest rates remain insanely low.

Another reassuring factor is that rental rates increased despite there being more inventory for renters to choose from. And while developers are building apartments as fast as they can, experts predict it won't be near enough to meet the demand over the next ten years or so. And with rates hovering in the mid 4% range right now, you can afford to own a rental property and cash flow it like we will never see again.
