New Upstairs Skylights!

Marking off the window- Notice how dark it is
The home projects continue this fall, and we DIDN'T do this one ourselves either, because it requires a lot of experience. we again hired Brian K., who converted our garage into a den. He did an amazing job.
The first window cut out!
   Last year, we had one skylight installed in the upstairs bathroom, and it lights up the entire stairway (which faces the upstairs bathroom). 
Both windows cut out
   So, this year, we've decided to get 2 skylights installed in the upstairs TV/computer room to bring in more light. Cape Cod-style homes have a large room that's almost attic-like in quality, so this will bring more light in on the back side of the house.
One cut through the roof- Lots of light pouring in!
  The front side of the house has the three dormer windows, so there's light and an additional space there.
  Tom painted the framing and completed the job. Skylights make a huge difference and we recommend them!

Nice, bright & no electricity upstairs!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
