            Last year I attended the beautiful wedding of the daughter of one of my friends.  Everything appeared to be idyllic.  After the honeymoon, the couple returned to the suburbs of a large metropolitan city where they had purchased a new home.  It was a lovely two-story home, and since they both had wonderful jobs, they were able to decorate it in a charming, comfortable way which suited their taste perfectly.  My friend fairly beamed when she spoke of them, and it seemed as if their marriage had almost a fairy tale beginning.  As a special surprise for them while they were on their honeymoon, my friend went to their home and delivered a special piece of family heirloom furniture that she knew her daughter loved.  All seemed perfect during the summer.            That winter the ...

Take a drive along the landscaped parkway into Union County’s The Reserve neighborhood and you’ll pass grassy open spaces with a pretty lake.  You’ll love the views there but the sight at the end of the parkway will astonish you.  Why?  The parkway ends at a large area dominated by a North Carolina Champion Tree.  It’s the largest willow oak in the state and it is truly a magnificent sight.  This tree is about 85 feet tall and 25 feet in circumference.  The tree has been preserved by the homeowners association at The Reserve in the common area adjacent to the community clubhouse and pool. The Reserve was built by Centex Homes from 2003 to 2006.  It’s a large neighborhood organized into several villages.  The sections with larger homes have home sites of a third to half acre or more.  Mo...

         One of the most important aspects to consider when it comes to mold is the humidity and moisture in your home.  Those of us who live in the South know that our climate is most often hot and wet.  This produces a great chance that there is excess moisture within our homes, and anywhere there’s a high level of moisture, there is likely to be mold.  Of course, the logical thing to do is to control the amount of moisture in the home.  The amount of moisture required to produce mold, however, may not be great, and it need not be spread throughout the home.  Mold can be caused by something as simple as a spill on carpet that’s not properly and immediately cleaned up and dried.  The padding beneath the carpet and the wood beneath the padding can grow mold as well as the carpet itself....
