Thank you ladies! [Smile] Appreciate the help.

Have any of you seen the formed, concrete counter tops? They are so beautiful.

I'm considering new counter-tops. I love the granite, but haven't seen the formed concrete which might be better and cheaper too. Maybe I can google it.

There's a homeshow going on here. Maybe I'll go to see what's new.

Smile,
I have seen the concrate counter tops and don't really care for them they are heavy and are costly to put in . I love the marble one or corian counter tops .The last concrate top was grey one on disply and didn't care for it .

I guess it is just a matter of taste in what you want in your kitchen.

That is too cool Suzieq...I admire anyone who has that kind of talent. Mine lies in decoration, color schemes, fabric corelation, that kinds of stuff only. Wish I could do more myself.

Gosh, our house is on the market and being shown a lot and one of the realtors asked my realtor to please find out who my decorater is. It's me! What a nice compliment.

Suzieq, I admire your talent and abilities.

Suzieq, if you lived closer I would have you come over and advise me how to lay a hardwood floor. I would just love to have hard wood floors, through out my house.
I have learned lots through out the years...but, laying floors hasn't been what I learned. Shingled a house once upon a time...yep, sure did.
Not sure I would want to learn about electrical.

Summer before last my husband and I, with a little help from some unreliable contractors, painted the whole house and laid hardwood flooring.

My husband loves that kind of thing. I cheer him on and serve margaritas to keep him going. Actually it was a lot of fun. The kids showed up occasionally and when we were alone we turned the stereo up real loud and danced on the bare floors.

Iam addicted to the shows Flip This House, Designed To Sell, House Hunters and Design On A Dime. I have seen and learned more than I ever imagined possible and they are such fun to watch too.

Sue, good for you for stepping out and creating a unique home in your neighborhood!

I always figure if I don't like it I can always repaint. Of course, with an exterior, you have to decide that pretty quickly. I stained my exterior by myself and I still have 2 corners I can't reach. I tried to rent a ladder, but I realized I wouldn't be able to get it out of my car without damaging it. I did find a neighbor with one and it will be my first project for the spring. It will only take a couple of hours.

Central vac? Won't that be really hard to install? You and your husband should buy up older homes and fix them for a huge profit!
