Are you in the Richmond area and in need of a great moving service? If you’re tired of packing and shipping your furniture and boxes by yourself I have a recommendation in the name of the company is called my moving guys. It is a professional moving company based out of Richmond Virginia and I recently use them when I moved across town. To understand why I feel so strongly about these movers you have to first know where I come from and my physical abilities. I have struggled with a bad back my entire life but up until recently I have always just tried to do things as normal so as to not feel handicapped. However, the last time I tried hauling a carpeting square up the stairs I spent a week in the hospital with a pulled back muscle. I knew that my days of moving heavy object like couches and tables were long over so I plan to head and contacted the moving company weeks in advance of our move. I wasn’t about to hurt myself doing a chore that these guys are paid to do.

What’s great about my moving guys is how interactive their website is. They have a “price guarantee” page where you can enter in specific information about where you live, where you’re moving, which rooms in the house have furniture that need to be moved and which specific pieces you expect to be moved. It may take you with a second to fill in everything but after you click the boxes of your various furniture and appliances you can even leave a special note sections with specific instructions. At the very bottom you click “submit” and it will give you an exact estimate of how much your move will cost. It’s nice to know that there’ll be no surprise charges or fees added on at the end so you can plan your budget accordingly.
Another great thing about this company is that all of their employees are from the Richmond area. This means they know the ins and outs of your neighborhoods and can find the best routes to you. They’re also aware of road closures and construction so as to avoid any delays in shipping your goods. They come on time and are all very professional and the way they deal with your furniture and your house. Letting someone into your home can be a daunting experience for some people but rest assured, every single person that I saw working for my moving guys was top-of-the-line, top-notch and very trustworthy. My whole family felt that of all the moving services we have hired in the past that these guys were the very best. Here’s a link to their website in case you or someone you know needs help moving soon: http://www.myguysmoving.com/pages/movers-richmond-petersburg-virginia/
I really want my moving guys to get the credit they deserve because they made our move a cinch.It’s always nice to give back to a company that is locally owned and operated. They’re involved in many community events throughout Richmond so I like giving them business not only because they’re excellent and what they do but because they give back to the community as well.

Steel Building Technology Has Come a Long Way

Posted by Emi on July 21, 2014 in A7, steel buildings with Comments closed |

Construction technology has greatly improved for when it first introduced Quonset Huts as steel buildings more than half a century ago. In 1941, a construction company known as George A. Fuller was tasked to manufacture lightweight all-purpose buildings for the United States Navy. The building should be easy to transport so that it could be built, shipped and assembled anywhere. It should also be easy to assemble because they did not have much skilled labor to spare during that time. Within 60 days of having been awarded the contract, the company produced the first steel building using low grade steel.

The original steel buildings design stood at 5 meters by 11 meters and had steel frames with a radius of 2.4 meters. Corrugated steel sheets were used on the sides while plywood covered the two ends. Doors and windows were carved on the plywood. The building’s interior included a wooden floor, pressed wood lining, and insulation. Once on site, the building can be erected on concrete or on the ground.

Because the Quonset Huts were made of non-strategic steel, the need for a more rust-resistant steel building launched the Pacific Hut. With flexible interior spaces, the steel buildings became available for use as warehouses, barracks, offices, housing, latrines, and even bakeries.

From these early versions of steel built structures, it is no wonder why many property owners opt to invest in steel or metal buildings instead of the traditional wood and concrete structures. Not only are steel edifices lightweight and all-purpose, it is also highly customizable and environment-friendly. If you want your steel shed or garage to match its surroundings, you can choose an earthy finish or wood panels to create a panelled storage facility. Depending on how you want the exteriors of your building to look like, you can choose to finish it with a variety of exterior coverings, including those that are used by any other building material. You can customize the aesthetics by choosing the colors and textures that best suit your building needs and preferences.

Steel buildings are also becoming a popular choice among contractors and construction companies that are environmentally-conscious. Building with steel translates to sustainability and less waste. According to studies, a sizable home can actually cost at least an acre’s worth of trees. However, with steel, you can build the same size without cutting any trees but by recycling less than ten scrapped automobiles. Steel is highly re-usable and recyclable. Once a steel structure is disassembled, you can use the steel components for new projects or you can have them recycled at a steel recycling factory and have it customized for your new projects. And even though the steel used to build your structures has undergone several recycling processes already, steel buildings will take a very long time before steel will show signs of wear and tear.

Metal buildings by Anthem Steel possess these prominent qualities of steel. The company is in the business of building quality and durable structures using only premium grade materials. The Colorado-based Anthem Steel also provides a 50 year structural warranty and top notch construction services.

Recovering from wisdom tooth removal

Posted by Phelan on July 18, 2014 in A7, oral surgeon with Comments closed |

Many people get very nervous when they learn that they have to get their wisdom teeth removed, but it is really a quite easy process.  Wisdom teeth removal is done by an oral surgeon as an outpatient procedure.  An outpatient procedure is a simple surgical procedure which allows the recipient to return home the same day as the surgery.  The recovery for outpatient procedures is generally pretty minimal and people can recover in the comfort of their own home.  This is one of the things that makes wisdom teeth removal much less scary than it may seem.

There are many steps that one can take to prepare for their appointment with their oral surgeon, and things that can be done after the surgery to assist in recovery.  To make sure you recover properly, it is important to talk with your oral surgeon ahead of time to learn about the details or your particular procedure.  For example, some people will only need to get one wisdom tooth removed, this is a pretty simple and quick process, and may only require local anesthesia.  Local anesthesia is anesthesia that just numbs the part of your body a doctor or dentist is working on.  In this care, local anesthesia would be used to numb your mouth and parts of your face to ensure you did not feel anything that the surgeon was doing. This type of surgery is far less invasive and difficult than a wisdom tooth removal where all of the wisdom teeth need to be removed.  This process can take more time and will cause more trauma to someones mouth.  This may involve more anesthesia and also a longer recovery time.  In more extreme cases, there is already some damage done by the wisdom teeth.  These more extreme cases are even more difficult and sometimes require the patient to go under general anesthesia.  This means that the person will be put to sleep while the oral surgeon removes the wisdom teeth and repairs any other damage done to the area.

For these reasons, it is important to talk with your surgeon to learn how many teeth are being removed and what kind of anesthesia will be used during your appointment.  Once you learn this, it is time to think about your recovery time and what you will need.  It is always a good idea to have a friend pick you up after your surgery and drive you home.  Even if you just get local anesthesia, you will be groggy and once the anesthesia starts wearing off, you will begin to feel some pain in the area.  Your doctor should prescribe you some pain medication to help with the pain until the holes left from the removed teeth close up.

Now that you are home, it is time to rest and recover from your procedure.  You should have a conversation with your surgeon to learn about the steps that you need to take to avoid infection, which is a common problem, and foods to eat and avoid.  Taking these steps will ensure that your wisdom teeth removal goes smoothly!

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME FIND A RELIABLE ROOF REPAIR SERVICE?

Posted by Sonny Andrew on July 9, 2014 in A7, Denver roofing, roofing contractors with Comments closed |

I can only wait so long to get this roof fixed. I have already been waiting for almost a month. When it rains the water comes in and covers the carpet and then the sun comes out and the smell is awful. When it snows, the powder piles up and makes us feel like we are living in a camp site or something. My kids are sick, the dog is depressed and half the furniture in the house is going to have to be sent to be cleaned. What I need is for someone to give me the name of a reliable roof repair service in town. I am, under no circumstance, just going to call a stranger up and ask them into my home. I need to be told beforehand that the company I am hiring is going to do a good job and that I can trust in them.

Please don’t tell me to go online, because I have done that before and I can’t trust a machine like I could another breathing living human. I type in Denver roofing and a thousand names come up. The reviews are good that the people leave on the blogs but that is not good enough for me. I want a real person to look me in the eyes and explain to me why A Denver Roofing is a better choice for me than ABC Denver roofing.  I have always been the sort of person who wants to be informed about a thing, by another person and if not then I may be forced to just let the roof stay as it is.

My son told me the other day that he is embarrassed to bring his friends to the house because of the truck sized hole in the roof. I know how he feels, the other day when I had to have a business partner over for coffee; a number of comments were made about the opening in my roof. I told my partner and my son the same thing, we had better find someone who can tell me the name of a place I can trust; otherwise we are going to be in for a long, cold winter.

The other day it seemed like the whole thing was close to being solved when a flyer came sliding under my door. I picked it up thinking it was probably just another Chinese restaurant menu but was shocked to see it was a Roofing contractors advertisement. The flyer said that the company provided the best and most reliable service in Denver. I flung the door open and burst out after the person who had left the flyer but he was nowhere to be seen. If I could have just spoken with him for a moment, looked him in the eyes and had him explain to me the company’s ways, then maybe right now we would all be sitting under a closed in roof top instead of huddled together under freezing November sky. Someone please, help us find a good roofer.

Aspen Distribution has all of the services our company needs.

Posted by Hannah Savage on July 9, 2014 in A7, logistics, warehouse with Comments closed |

I am the manager of a large international company. We are constantly sending and receiving inventory from overseas and the logistics can be a nightmare. Thankfully I am not the manager of the logistics department but it is my job to make sure that we are running every aspect of the company as efficient as possible. From experience I know that the best way to reduce costs is to outsource our most difficult labor intense and costly division. That would definitely be warehousing and logistics. This part of the company sucks up a lot of money and manpower. My plan is to take this part off of our shoulders and give someone else the work. To do this I need to find a reliable warehousing company in the Denver area. We are head quartered here but need to be able to make shipments all around the world. This is the hard part. Many warehouses do not have the capability to deal with international shipments. I also need a warehouse that we can easily access and has plenty of space and storage options.

I found Aspen Distribution and am so thrilled. They have everything that I was looking for and more in a warehouse. I could hardly believe what they have to offer. You have to see it to believe it:

Facilities

  • Main campus: two buildings totaling 310,000 square feet.
  • Off Site facilities include 180,000 seasonal location.
  • Sanitation audits by ASI, State Health Department and our customers
  • Rack, Shelf and Bulk storage
  • 27 Dock Doors (main campus)
  • Rail Siding – UP (main campus)
  • Full compliment of material handling equipment including fork lifts, roll and box clamps, basaloids and pallet jacks.
  • 24/7 Recorded Video Surveillance System (inside & out)
  • Monitored Burglar and Fire Alarms.
  • Sprinkler System
  • Fenced Yard

 

International Services

  • Container Freight Station (H610)
  • Customs Examination Site
  • Foreign Trade Zone #123 (J643)
  • Containers, truck loads and LTL/LCL sorted, segregated, palletized and ready for quick access to your shipments.
  • Load/Unload import/export containers.
  • Local truck load, container load, LTL and LCL deliveries.
  • Own fleet of tractor/trailers and 24’ straight trucks with lift gates.
  • Intermodal dray service to/from Denver rail ramp.
  • Easy Customer Pick-Up/Will Calls.
  • Short or long term storage and inventory management.

What I am most impressed with about Aspen Distribution is their wide range of services. Not only do they have everything you want in a warehouse but more. Their international capabilities are what sold me. We need a reliable company that can send and receive international shipments, track them and be able to transport them where needed. We do not have to provide any of our own trucks or hire drivers, Aspen Distribution does that all for us. Their warehouse is fully capable of handling all of our inventory and I can rest easy knowing that the area is under 24 hour surveillance. They also have a fire alarm and a sprinkler system. They do everything they can to eliminate disaster and as a manager who has a lot on their plate I really appreciate that. Aspen Distribution is a great place to work with and I am so happy that I found them.

Shutters can be a more practical option than traditional blinds.

Posted by Amanda Friese on July 1, 2014 in A7, blinds, shutters with Comments closed |

In the house where I grew up we had very standard, cheap blinds. They were the kind that were made out of what felt like a very flimsy metal and were very thin so there were like a thousand individual blind pieces all strung together on a flimsy string to make the blind. The metal strips were always getting turned around or twisted up, which made it really difficult to pull the blinds up or down. The flimsy string that held them all together was always getting stuck or snapping off all together. After a while the metal pieces started to break off in chunks. My cat used to like to sit in the window sill and one time broke off a huge chunk of the blind trying to jump down. My point is, these blinds were a mess. They weren’t functional and didn’t look very nice either.

shuttersI recently bought my first home with my husband. When we first saw the home one of the first things that I noticed was the horrible blinds that were the same as the ones in the house where I grew up. There were many home improvement projects and decorating projects that needed to be done, but when my husband and I decided to buy that house I vowed that buying new blinds would be at the top of my to-do list. A couple of weeks after we moved in a fulfilled my promise to myself and went out on the hunt for some new blinds. After growing up with such terrible blinds I knew that I was in the market for something much better. I decided to go with shutters instead of blinds for the windows in the kitchen, and then bought some nice faux wood blinds for the rest of the house. The blinds that I bought were much more functional and easy to clean than the cheap blinds we had at my house growing up. The individual slats on the new blinds are wide and sturdy, my cat definitely wouldn’t be able to break one let alone six. The string that holds the blind together and functions as its pulley system is also much more stable than the cheap flimsy blinds.

After installing all of the new blinds I couldn’t believe what a great difference it made! With that one project the house started to look much nicer and cleaner. The new blinds were also much easier to aid in the control of the amount of light to let in to a room. With the old kind of blinds the slats were always getting twisted around and broken so even when the blinds were pulled all the way down, quite a bit of light could still get in. With the new blinds I have much more control over the light source. Buying new blinds was a seemingly small and easy project that made a huge difference in the appearance of my home. Although it wasn’t inexpensive by any means, it was definitely worth it.

Self storage rental units

Posted by Melissa on June 29, 2014 in A7, self storage rental, storage unit with Comments closed |

They are advertising cheaper self storage units in our neighborhood this week, and so I’m tempted to go sign a lease for one. Actually, I’m not even sure that you are supposed to sign a lease, or maybe you just pay cash up front and that is all that it takes. But either way, because of the sign I figured that it might actually make more sense to pay for a self storage rental unit than it does to pay for a larger apartment. I could reasonably rent a smaller place and also rent a storage unit and end up paying less each month. And if it is like the situation I’m in now, the rental unit will be directly across the street from where I live. And that means that I would be able to rent out a storage unit and put things into it that I would normally want in my closet or under my bed. I would put half of my kitchen stuff into a storage unit, things that I only need in the summer or when I have a large group of people coming over for a big dinner. Or all my off season clothes, that would be something that I think I could put into a storage unit, because I don’t need my summer clothes in the winter, and I don’t need my winter pants and sweaters in the summer. No matter how much the weather fluctuates every season, I don’t need to pull out clothes from a separate season for that day. So it makes sense to think that if I don’t have storage space I would put my off season clothes in the storage unit.self storage unit

And right now, with the sale that they are advertising, there is almost no reason not to do the whole thing. I could get the storage unit for a year, and I could move into a one bedroom apartment instead of a two bedroom. And with the cost of the one bedroom and the rental unit, the cost monthly is still much less than I would pay if I were to rent a two bedroom and utilize that bigger kitchen and the extra closet space. It actually makes a lot more sense for me, because a storage unit is so much cheaper than a bigger apartment, and yet I don’t have to give away any of my stuff. I get to keep it all and just switch it out, I can rotate it when the weather changes or when I have people coming for dinner or a holiday. In the end, I really think that this makes more sense, even when there isn’t a sale on self storage units. There is just no way to know when they are going to be this cheap again, because this is the lowest that I have ever seen them for the cost of a year, and it makes sense to just pick up a rental at that low rate and then just keep using it and then get a smaller apartment.

 

Reputable Steel Building Companies Have Pre-Construction Services Packages

Posted by Emi on June 24, 2014 in A7, Anthem steel, steel buildings with Comments closed |

When buying steel buildings, it is important that you take time to research and canvas for best possible suppliers and contractors. Unlike making impulsive decisions, you will definitely save yourself time, effort and money when you examine potential steel building manufacturers. You should not just settle on information provided by the company but also consider feedback from their previous clients. A steel building company with a reputation for quality products and exemplary customer service would make a good choice.

One way to identify which of the many retailers of steel buildings you would like to hire is to check if they offer discounts. It is probable that retailers will give discounts to new customers if they are not currently operating at a loss. Major companies that have years of good reputation and a stable cash flow are able to offer generous discounts on their products and services. These companies care about their customers’ satisfaction and will be of assistance to them, every step of the way, until the projects are completed.

It would also be a wise choice to ask the retailers the prices of their products and the incentives that you will be receiving as a customer. You should make sure that the prices are at par with factory prices and that you are not paying extra for the same product you can buy elsewhere.

Another consideration is that the retailer should be flexible will all sorts of projects. Whether you need to build a garage or a gymnasium, a good retailer will be able to handle these tasks. In cases when you are uncertain about how your building will look like, a customer-friendly steel building retailer will show you mock-ups of your project. For accurate mock-ups, you should consult a professional retailer of pre-engineered steel buildings.

On top of these considerations, you should also check if your retailer of choice has an excellent rating from the Better Business Bureau. If the company is an accredited business with the BBB and it is rated with an A+, this indicates that the company has a lot of highly satisfied clients. Anthem Steel Corporation is a BBB Accredited Business since January 2014, which resonates its guarantee for 100% customer satisfaction.

If you are currently in the planning stage, then you can consult with Anthem Steel and inquire about their pre-construction services package. The steel building company guarantees best price and best professional service in the creation of the best quality pre-engineered metal buildings in the industry. The company provides project coordinators and local contractors. Project Coordinators are dedicated solely to your project so they can handle and provide necessary solutions for issues that may concern your building.

Kilimanjaro Climbing Expeditions Go to the Summit Every Year, and You can Sign Up for One.

Posted by Ben on June 21, 2014 in A7, kilimanjaro climb, mountain climbing with Comments closed |

Kilimanjaro climbingIf you are going to go to the trouble of climbing to the summit of a large mountain, you might as well pick a good one to scale, and no mountain is better than Kilimanjaro, when it comes to trekking to the top.  Kilimanjaro, as you may or may not know, is both the tallest mountain in Africa and the tallest free-standing mountain on Earth, but neither of those things are what makes it so special.  Perhaps the single most appealing aspect of Kilimanjaro is the fact that it is so utterly beautiful.  Everything from the land, itself, to the wildlife is breathtaking.  Plus, Kilimanjaro climbing expeditions go to the summit, every year, and you can sign up for one, as long as you are confident in your health.

Over the last century, many people have made the journey to Tanzania, just to climb to the top of that truly awesome mountain.  Because it is such a beautiful and well-known mountain, each year a large number of tourists set out, on one of the many expeditions to the top.  The other reason it receives so many tourists is the fact that it is less dangerous and difficult to climb than a lot of the other exceedingly famous mountains.  While a lot of other mountains require some knowledge of mountaineering, as well as proficiency using mountaineering equipment, Kilimanjaro requires nothing more than your good health and the ability to walk for many hours.  Because of the shallowness of the slopes of Kilimanjaro, climbers can hike the whole way, but the summit is still at a very high altitude.  Because of this, there is not much oxygen towards the top.  So, if you suffer from a condition that would make minor oxygen deprivation very dangerous, you probably cannot climb Kilimanjaro.  Even if you are completely healthy, there are is a plethora of problems that can rise.  One of the most common problems climbers face is altitude sickness.  It is caused by the lack of oxygen and the low air pressure, and it is usually not a very big deal.  However, it can be very severe in some cases, which is only one reason why anyone with health issues is advised to not make the journey.

Once you have committed yourself to making the trek, though, you need to find a good guide service, to escort you to the summit, safely, as it can be very dangerous to attempt to navigate, on your own.  There is a lot that can go wrong, even if you do have the proper guidance, and you should not do anything to increase that risk.  In terms of picking a good guide service, there are a few ways to separate the good from the bad.  For one thing, if the Kilimanjaro guides they employ are certified by the AMGA and the IFMGA, you can be fairly certain they are skilled and knowledgeable mountaineers.  Those are, after all, the two institutions that are the primary authorities on mountain climbing.

http://www.landisconstruction.com/Many people today, myself included, try to think about the environment (as much as possible) with each decision they make. They recycle everything they can, they try to buy locally produced goods when it is economically feasible, they conserve water, etc.  There are some things we do though where we simply don’t consider the environment.  For example, when I go to the gym to workout, I don’t think about the weights and the machines and I use and where they came from.  Were the materials sourced sustainably?  Did they buy these things locally or did they travel halfway around the world?  Those aren’t thoughts that always jump into my mind.  I go to the gym to workout, not to save the planet.  I imagine a similar thing happens when people are undertaking some home remodeling.  I highly doubt that most people think about the materials they are ordering and the energy efficiency of the rooms they are building.  It just isn’t something that jumps to the forefront of your mind when you are making improvements on your home.  Fortunately, it can be though.

The next time you choose a home building contractor to do work on your home, consider their ability to make it environmentally friendly.  One contracting company that can deliver on that front is Landis Construction.  Ethan Landis, one of the company’s founders and namesakes, worked on the D.C. Mayor’s Green Building Advisory Council.  The company is also a member of the U.S. Green Building Council.  These are prestigious organizations that are the real deal.  Landis Construction is the real deal as well.  The company has won a number of awards for both the style and construction of the buildings they work on, but also for the low environmental impact of their buildings.

Bath remodeling, kitchen remodeling, and home remodeling are becoming more and more common as people look to reinvent their homes through their creativity.  However, these type of undertakings require a great deal of resources.  It is important, then, to choose materials that come from local producers, are recycled or reused, and/or can be disposed of in an environmentally manner.  As a home owner, it can be difficult to know which products are the best to buy for the planet.  Therefore, it is important to find companies like Landis Construction that are already experts in this field.  They can help you select the correct products, that will look great in your home and that will also put the environmentalist in your heart at ease.  No one wants to feel guilty about the home they own, and building your home in an energy efficient way will surely relieve it.  Not only does energy efficiency decrease the carbon footprint of your home, it also reduces the cost of keeping your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The next time you are looking to remodel your home, be sure to consider the environment in the process.  It is much easier than you think to find a company that can help you purchase materials and build your home in a manner consistent with your values.

 

Use radon removal to make sure your new home is safe for your family

Posted by Teresa on June 14, 2014 in A7, radon mitigation, radon remediation with Comments closed |

When you have finally found the neighborhood you want to buy a home in, it can be a huge relief. Picking out the right school district, the right distance from work, and generally speaking an area you know you want to spend several years in can be a big endeavor. Not to mention beginning the search for a home in that area. It depends on the market but you could potentially be radon removallooking for quite a while before finding the right house for you, and just buying it without asking the right questions could be problematic in the long run. You might be so excited that you finally found the house of your dreams, but pay very careful attention during the inspection and any other tests to make sure that it does not turn into a nightmare for you and your family.

Home inspections frequently turn up things such as any trouble with the quality of the roof, or a crack in the foundation. It may indicate whether the water heater is overdue for repairs or the garage door needs replacing. But without requesting a special radon inspection, you might never know if a home you are trying to purchase has higher than usual levels of radon and you might be unnecessarily exposing you and your family to dangerous materials. Luckily enough, radon mitigation is a relatively straightforward and affordable process and can be done in a matter of days. But this means if you are buying a home and come across one that you love that has higher levels of radon than are recommended, you need to be able to know what to do about it and understand that this does not mean the house is out of the question.

It is possible that you might doubt the seller’s ability to maintain the home and wonder what else is in need of repair. However, high radon levels can happen to even the most vigilant of homeowners and if there is a radon mitigation system present already, then you have nothing to worry about. If there is not one present, then negotiating with the seller to put one in place before the contract closes should be an easy process. No seller is going to find that to be an unreasonable request, and if they do, that is probably your best indication that they are not a responsible homeowner and you might be getting into more trouble than you bargained with their home. However, most sellers are going to recognize the need immediately and agree to make any adjustments or hire radon abatement services as soon as possible. Many of them are still living in their homes and do not want that kind of exposure either.

In fact, for some sellers, you might have done them a big favor. They could have spent years in a house being exposed to high radon levels and increasing their risk for cancer, but because you bought the home from them and encouraged a radon inspection and the resulting radon remediation services, you might even have saved their life.

Self storage units are available just about in every city.

Posted by Jon on June 13, 2014 in A7, storage unit with Comments closed |

When I was in college, I had a girlfriend that would keep her stuff in Denver during her summer breaks.  This allowed for her to minimize the amount with which she had to travel back and forth with to and from Denver and San Diego.  It made a lot of sense and I started to gain an interest in what people may keep in their storage units.  As a result, I was delighted to find the show called, “Storage Wars,” revealing just that.

storage unitsStorage Wars is based off of the real auctions that take place when someone stops paying the bills on the storage unit.  Customers come out and start to participate in a live auction for ownership over all of the contents in the storage unit.  The only rule is that if someone is the winning bidder, they have to take out all of the items from the unit. Lots of times when someone is bidding on a unit, all that is left in there are a bunch of old tax documents and old papers that have nothing to do with anything.  However, people do this because there is the opportunity to stumble upon a unit that has some real value to it.  These units often have old antiques and memorabilia that could be later auctioned off or sold at one of the stores that these individuals own.  It is quite impressive to see what some people are able to pull out of these units.  It is also something that I could be very interested in doing myself.

Self storage units are unique because people can put just about anything in there.  One of the things that I would be interested in keeping in one of the units is a scooter.  I would love to buy a scooter so that I could ride around Denver in the summer.  Of course that would mean a couple of things: I would be riding my bike less, which is not acceptable because I really like my bike and ride it everywhere during the summer and that I would not have anywhere to put it.

That is the beauty of renting out one of the storage facilities.  You can find these places just about everywhere in the city and they are designed to allow for people to put wherever they want in the locker.  The great thing about this is that for a minimal amount of money, people can keep their scooters and skis in the unit and then only take them out when they need them for the season.  It sounds like a great deal to me and it is definitely something that I would consider doing if I had more space in my garage.  I am not sure if that would be the case, but it is something that I would like to check out.  There are so many of these storage facilities in the city that I am sure I could find one close to my house in Congress Park.

East Greenbush Window helped us choose new window coverings for our home

Posted by Phelan on June 10, 2014 in A7, East Greenbush WIndows, window coverings with Comments closed |

My husband and I recently purchased our new home.  It is a small victorian style home in a very desirable part of town with really wonderful features and designs.  The downside was that the person who owned it before had a very different style than ours.  We did not like the wall colors, the window treatments, or the carpeting which was all throughout the house.  Luckily, beautiful hard wood floor was just under the hideous carpeting.  Once we pulled that up, put on a new coat of paint, and installed some new window coverings and curtains, we knew it would feel like home in no time.

When we first moved in, we had first prioritized pulling up the carpet, followed by painting, and then last (but not least) purchasing new window coverings for the whole house.  Within a few days, we realized we would have to re prioritize.  You see, we moved in early October and we thought we would have another month until the cold weather rolled in; we were wrong!  Our first night in our new home the temperatures dropped into the thirty’s and we froze as the cold air seeped through the exposed windows (we had thrown away the old, dirty blinds when we moved in).  We realized we need to get new window coverings right away in order to stay warm!

We began our search right away with a visit to East Greenbush Window.  They were a huge help!  We did not want to rush into a decision and we had some trouble since we had not yet settled on a color to paint the walls. We had planned on painting the walls first and matching the window coverings to the paint- that was not going to be an option now.  We explained our predicament, and they suggested that we begin by installing some neutral color blinds, and we could install curtains at a later date when we had finished the painting.  The blinds, if we choose the right ones, would be sufficient to keep out the cold air.  We immediately agreed that this was a good idea.

That same day we purchased a lovely set of off white blinds for all the windows in our house.  Just the next day, East Greenbush Window sent someone out to install them for us. Not only do our new custom shades keep us warm, but they look great and our house is beginning to look more like the home we envisioned.

Now, three months later, we have finished the carpet and have painted all of the walls in the house.  We are now ready to purchase some curtains to complete the look!  I’m so pleased that we had met someone who was knowledgable and was able to help us purchase and install window coverings to keep our home warm, without rushing us into a decision on buying curtains.  We can now take our time and find curtains in colors which perfectly compliment the color scheme of our home.

Dental Implants Are Important For Those Missing Teeth

Posted by Caber Harmon on June 6, 2014 in A7, dental crowns, dental implants, veneers with Comments closed |

There are a lot of people in this world who are amazingly capable but won’t ever reach their full potential for some sad reasons. We don’t have a roadmap that we can look at retrospectively at the end of our lives and see where we went wrong, but sometimes we can formulate a pretty good theory. Confidence is a huge factor in people’s lives, but often they don’t know and the people that never have a problem with it, often lead successful lives. Have you ever heard anyone talk about the way that one carries themselves? Well, that’s another way of saying that someone either exudes confidence, thus they carry themselves well, or they don’t. And the thing is, it normally doesn’t have a single thing to do with intelligence or experience, but experience and intelligence can certainly help. We were all raised in different environments by different people who were more or less aware of how important building one’s confidence was. It amazes me though, how ignorant some people are and were of the importance of this. Sometimes however, one’s ignorance of it is actually a good thing because the fact that they’re not hyper aware of it means that there’s a chance that it’s never been a problem. Whereas a lot of people who are aware of it only are because they’ve been a victim of negative stimuli received that hurt their ability to properly develop. Either way, one’s individual confidence is an important thing and those who were never taught in any way to question it, are often the most successful people.

Having a great set of teeth that you never had to feel self-conscience about is a great way to start. Add a good family that is well-provided for in a healthy and supportive environment, and there’s a good chance that everything is likely going to turn out great for that person. Getting a sweet set of veneersveneers is a good way for a lot of people to feel better about themselves if they know the feeling of not being comfortable with their teeth. Sometimes, people are missing teeth not because they got knocked out or rotted away, it’s just a genetic defect that they have no control over. Dental implants are available along with other general and cosmetic dentistry techniques and procedures to help people facing these kind of issues.

Have you ever heard the term “hillbilly”? If so, close your eyes for a second and think about the image of the person that comes to mind. Then, slap a smile on that person’s face and tell me approximately how any teeth you can count or what condition those teeth are in. I don’t imagine that you imagined someone who looks like Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie, they probably look more like Simple Jack from Tropic Thunder. Have you ever heard of dental crowns? What does that look like inside your head? Is the crown made of gold and does that person with it in their mouth look intimidating or like a used car salesman? Who knows, where we come from and who and what we’ve been exposed to informs the image that comes across our minds.
