What Not To Do When Hiring A Contractor.   With over 30 years out in the field I unfortunately get to see to many repair jobs done wrong, on the cheap, shoddy workmanship, poor quality materials. When it comes to home repair and improvement you usually get what you pay for. If one company is selling brand X hot water tank for $500, and another company is selling brand Y for $1,000, there is usually a reason for it in regards to quality of that product. The same holds true for labor and contractors. If you get a much lower price on the labor then it is usually not that they are charging that much less in the cost of labor but in the time that contractor is willing to put into the job. Here is an article of a homeowner who was taken by a low price; the contractor was un-licensed and proba...

Have you Ever Found a Realtor at an Oil Change I needed an oil change this morning, and like to go to my favorite place, European Auto Center in Norwalk CT, where I get to see my two favorite men - Keal and Chris.    They are so personable and helpful, and would never do anything besides help a client to the best of their ability.    I arrived at 8 am , as usual for me, since I like to wait while they change the oil and chit chat with them or who ever is in their office, also waiting.   This time, Keal stayed around a little more than usual, and began telling me his latest story about Realtors.  Doesn't everyone have a favorite story?    His story was so similar to something that happened to me last night with a referral - agents not returning phone calls.   What????   Why are you in bu...

  Winter at Cove Avenue, Norwalk 06851 is simply amazing! The winter in this area this year has been particularly spectacular with the beautiful snowstorms we have consistently been having.  2011 has started with a BANG!   Cove Avenue, located in southern Norwalk (officially in East Norwalk) overlooks the Norwalk Harbor, Water Street docks, Seaview Park (where the famous Oyster Festival is located), and of course, the Long Island Sound.    I drove through the area, and was struck by the absolutely fabulous beauty of the area.   I would like to share these photos I took.....                                           View Larger Map     Winter at Cove Avenue, Norwalk 06851   is simply beautiful!

Casey's Sheet Metal Service in Norwalk, CT Caseys' Sheet Metal Service, a top quality custom metal working company, has been located in Norwalk CT at 4 Merwin Street for many many years.   Their phone number is 203-866-9008.      This is a shop catering to not only the "big guys" (Air Conditioning companies), but also the "little guys."    Casey's works with custom sheet metal fabrication, air conditioning, and heating.    I cannot imagine one could find a job that they could not handle.    We had some coach lamps that were falling apart, because the welding was disintegrating after 30 years, but otherwise, were in great shape.   All we needed was a good welder, and a steady hand.    That we found at Casey's Sheet Metal Service.   We also found a family business that cares about their c...

Try Learning Something New Every Day! Thanks to Looking at Active Rain blog posts every day, I just opened a PICNIK account, and taught myself how to make a slide show.    Pretty cool!   I am trying it out here to see how it will look.    I cannot remember who had it on their bog post,  but I figured that I   would give it a whirl and see what happened.   Every day, it's important to try to learn something new. I am hosting an open house next weekend for a friend, and being pretty busy at the moment, I thought I would get a head start on creating a post.   Just an idea.    I thought that I would try something new - learning while accomplishing what I needed.   I visited a program named PICNIK. The home for the Open House is located in Norwalk, CT on Perry Avenue.   It's a cute, 3 bedroo...
