The Modern Reality of Prefabricated Homes

Mention that you’re looking at buying a prefabricated or mobile home to friends and often the response you’ll get is one of confusion. Most people have an image in their mind about prefab or mobile homes that is a holdover from the early days of mobile home construction. Gone are the days of builders creating metal shoebox monstrosities. And as in any new industry, as the standards have evolved the quality of product has gotten increasingly better. The modern mobile or prefabricated home has many benefits for the home buyer that might not be immediately apparent. The obvious benefit of buying prefabricated is, of course, the speed in which you actually have a new home to live in. If you are buying a custom home, it will take about 12 weeks for delivery, but a previously built home takes only as long as delivery and set up! Building a home on-site can take much longer due to weather conditions, contractor scheduling, and availability of materials or workers. A less obvious benefit to mobile and prefab homes is that they’re environmentally friendly. Because they are built in a climate controlled assembly line factory environment, there is less waste generated and less building materials ruined by weather or vandalism than you would find with on-site building. Many companies also give you the option to choose more energy efficient options for your custom built home, saving you even more money in the long run. Having your home built in a factory setting is also more efficient for the workers building your home, which in turn helps lower the price of your home. Since all the building materials are at the factory where your home is being built and the construction process is done on an assembly line, the work is completed more quickly. The set up of your new home on the building site is also much quicker because your home will be mostly completed when it arrives. You might think that buying a prefabricated or mobile home will let result in a home that’s a cookie cutter version of all the other prefabricated or mobile homes out there; in reality there are many options that you can choose from when arranging to have your home built. Take a look at the builders that are available to you and see what your options are. Shop around for floor plans that appeal to you and fulfill your particular needs. Whether you require a cozy bungalow or a more spacious design, rest assured that there are mobile or prefab designs out there that will suit you. And once you’ve picked out the best plan and customized the details to your tastes, you may just change the way that your friends view modern prefabricated or mobile homes!

Music Review of Oceans Will Rise by The Stills

“The Stills” are a five-piece Montreal Canadian based indie rock band. The Stills comprise of Tim Fletcher (Vocal and Guitar), Dave Hamelin (Vocal and Lead Guitar), Liam O’Neil (Keyboards, Percussion and Backing Vocal), Olivier Corbeil (Bass and Backing Vocal) and Julien Blais (Drums). Of all the members of The Stills, all members except Julien Blais knew each other since they were 12 years old as they were art students at a school in Montreal. They only formed The Stills in 2000. Throughout their life as The Stills, they have released an EP and two full length albums, called Rememberese EP, Logic Will Break Your Heart and Without Feathers respectively. In 2007, The Stills supported indie rockers Kings Of Leon during their UK spring tour. “Being Here” sounded like The Stills are telling a story of their own. How they got to where they are today. Lovely track. 🙂 I don’t know how would you feel when you listen to this song. But i can feel their pain, their joy and most importantly their journey as The Stills. This song is loud and full of guitar riff, bass, drums and keyboards. With the chorus of “Being Here…”, this song is an anthem off Oceans Will Rise. On “Everything I Build”, The Stills slowed it down and for a moment, i can feel as if The Stills are singing acoustically. This song is like a build-up for Tim to release, there was a moment where Tim yelled, “Drink a little bit, that’s a little bit, take a chance, or lose it all, i have no remorse no regrets, when I’m hanging from the seventeenth floor”. I can feel his letting out at the exact moment. At the chorus, Tim sang, “Everything I build is breaking down…”. Despair can be heard in Tim’s voice as he sang. “Panic” starts off with some curious-creating bass line. To me, i think this song is about being panic whenever something goes wrong. Honestly, instead of being panic, i really love this song. The guitar came in at the right time everytime to join the bass. 🙂 Really amazing. And when Tim sang, “Panic… Panic”. It was just so simple, but yet you can’t help but to love this song. Enjoy panic!”Eastern Europe” has a really catchy and infectious hook to it. The guitar of this song made it impossible not to be heard and get noticed. And the lyrics had a really deep meaning to it and i can’t tell what The Stills were trying to deliver. Meaning aside, this track scored a big time in its music, the guitar especially. :-D”Hands on Fire” are an indie pop rock song. Very friendly to your ear. It can be an instant radio classic and receive lots of radio airplay. At first listen, the guitar will charm you, accompanied with the constant drums playing. It’s such a suitable song for the summer holidays. When it comes to the chorus, Tim let it out, “My hands are on fire, my hands are on fire. . ” It’s very good! :-)”Dinosaurs” is another track that is full of loud guitar riff and what an indie band would do best if you give them guitars, bass, drums, keyboards, percussion and so on. In Dinosaurs, Tim sang in a draggy way to suit the track’s tempo and beat. It’s not a bad track though. “I’m With You” is somewhat similar to Hands On Fire. It’s very radio friendly and the music has some summer elements in it, making it a perfect song for summer holidays. I just love the part, “If you believe in me, i’ll believe in you, i’m with you, if you want me to…” The repetition of “I’m with you” is really good. 🙂

Step Into The Flea Market For Finding Great Bargains

Even the designers on TV are doing it; finding great furnishing at flea-markets, charity shops, and yard sales. Often, a wonderful piece of furniture can be had for mere dollars, especially if its finish is in desperate need of some TLC. Unfortunately, the design shows on TV don’t show you all the proper steps for refreshing your finds. Take the time to do it right, and your “new” furniture will have friends wondering where you shop! 1. Safety first: Before you disturb any painted surface, you should think about the possibility of lead. Lead paint additives were phased out in the 1970’s and 80’s. If you suspect lead is present in any paint, you can find information about safety precautions and testing at www. epa. gov/lead, or by calling the National Lead Information Center at 1-800-424-LEAD. Even with newer surfaces, I find that a dust mask is always in order when sanding. Your lungs will thank you. 2. Sanding: Not all pieces will require sanding before repainting. My mantra is to leave well enough alone when dealing with old paint surfaces. If, however, the paint is chipped, peeling, crackling, or has other problems, you might not be able to avoid the sandpaper. A small electric hand sander is my best friend for these situations. A very light sanding (really just scuffing) can help your new paint adhere to old oil paint or a glossy surface. 3. Prep, prep, prep: The number one reason for paint failures is incorrect preparation. Time spent on prep will ensure you get a good result in the end. Make sure the surface is completely clean and dust free before you ever get the paint out of the can. If you have sanded the surface, remove dust with a tack cloth. This is a small piece of cheesecloth soaked in wax, available at your local home improvement store in the paint section. They cost around one dollar. . . get several to keep on hand for the next project! If you can’t find one, several thorough passes with a damp cloth followed by another pass with a dusting cloth can do the job. Most importantly, don’t rush your prep work. 4. Taping: Carefully tape off any areas you don’t want painted, and burnish the tape edges down once, firmly, with a fingernail. If you think you might have to leave the tape on for more than a day or so, use a lower adhesion tape made for delicate surfaces. 5. Priming: If the piece is unpainted, consider a coat of primer before you paint. There are excellent primers specifically made for stone and metal. Tell your paint store rep what you’re painting and follow her advice. Use a good latex or oil-based primer for wood surfaces. Some wood grains (pine or cheaper grades of oak, for example) may “rise” after a first coat of latex, and priming improves the chances that you can avoid this. The raised grain will feel rough. If this happens, you’ll need to sand the grain down lightly and prime again. Don’t worry; it’s not as bad as it sounds when you know what happened! 6. Painting: Finally, time to paint! Use a good quality paint brush. Be careful not to overload your brush with paint and put it on too thickly. This is a common mistake. Painting in thick layers can lead to ugly drips, cracks, or drying delays. Instead, paint in thin coats, allowing time for each coat to dry completely before recoating. This will give you a beautiful and strong surface. 7. Curing: Follow the instructions on your paint can to make sure your new furniture is safely cured before you begin to use it or place objects on top of it. Paints, latex in particular, can feel dry well before they really are. When in doubt, I like to wait 24-48 hours before I place my newly painted flea-market beauties into service. Now, enjoy your new furnishings. Use them well and never fear; if they get chipped or you tire of the color, you know how to fix it!

Chicago Caregivers Should be Registered With Agencies

If the client is in the hospital and suffers from any form of dementia, a private-duty sitter can be hired to sit in the patient’s room. Patients with memory problems have a tendency to wander, and pull catheters and IV lines out which makes it very difficult for the nursing staff to protect the client’s safety. A sitter is a good option. The client/patient is often unaware that someone is in the room with them. The sitter watches over the patient and assists with bathroom visits and helps with meals. This frees up the nursing staff to take care of the medical portion of the patient’s care. For home care during the day, a sitter is an excellent choice. Some will even do light housekeeping. Finding a caregiver can be a daunting task. First, ask friends and neighbors. Personal companions often find themselves out of work due to a death or the hospitalization of their client. Chicago caregivers should be registered with agencies. Nursing pool agencies have listings for private duty nurses, nurses’ aids, sitters and companions. Home care agencies will have listings excluding nurses as a general rule. Nurses are highly skilled and usually register with nursing agencies. They are in high demand and usually work in hospital settings or doctor’s offices. In conclusion, to find a good personal caregiver, contacting a local eldercare or senior care group is the first step. The state where the person resides can can make recommendations to families. They will guide you in making your decision. Most agencies are listed on the internet or in the local phone book. It is then up to you to interview and hire the most qualified person for the job. The family now becomes the employer. Check state licenses and most importantly, get references and do a background check. If the client is an elderly person wanting to remain in their home, a companion is a wonderful option. A companion will take the client shopping and to doctor visits. Chicago companions do not live with the client. This is a form of at-home elderly care, but also is an option for a handicapped individual who wishes to live independently. A companion should be friendly, personable and caring.
