Hi , What do you want to know? Every week I guess and some weeks I'm scraping bottom of the bucket. Is there a topic you'd like me to cover or do you have any questions? Or do you have any suggestions for improving the newsletter? Just reply and your response comes directly to me.
What's wrong with the AC?
I "debate" regularly about our air conditioner, specifically the temperature setting, with someone near and dear, so this segment is […]

Hi , Bright and early tomorrow I'll be volunteering at the third annual 4 The Wounded 5K, an event we support because 100% of the proceeds go to the
Wounded Warrior Project. The field is now full, for the first time late entrants cannot sign up on race day, but you can still donate or come out to support the runners. The race starts at 8 am, there's also a sponsor's expo with giveaways and a kid's race. Hope to see you there.

Lighting most often gets short shrift when owners are budgeting home improvement or new […]

Hi , Windows have always been ho-hum to me until I saw the shipment to Castlebrook this week. Norwood delivered directly to Central VA from New Brunswick, Canada (1,400 miles!) the mahogany doors and windows, which are so impressive I was nervous to get near them.
Norwood is a family owned business and I love their slogan, "Never Ordinary", because that's us too! See the CPW below for two of their innovative door systems.

Hi , Although most important, framing is visually boring (at least to me, maybe Jonathan disagrees), but the action is picking up at Castlebrook Farm as we get under roof. Next week we begin installing windows and doors, then the cool stuff really starts to roll. Watch as we go at BuilderFish.TV
. Remember, the most direct web address to BuilderFish Cam is dot-TV, not dot-Com.

Depending on your virus protection settings, you can click any colored text and open a browser window to source material or a product example. Most of the changes in this quarterly update relate to indoor air quality but there are other additions as well. How should you use? The mini […]
