Tips for Keeping a Tight House

This past month our Project Manager had an opportunity to attend a seminar hosted by the  Building Science Corporation. He brought back some helpful tips for keeping a tight house this winter. Here they are in no particular order:

1. When sealing a house, you get the most bang for your buck by sealing the top of the house first.

2. The majority of heat loss (30-40%) occurs through air leakage. This could be in the form of penetrations not being sealed, lighting into the attic, etc.. The 2nd biggest area (20-25%) is through the foundation. 

3. Include a dehumidifier with all finished basement projects.

4. Whenever possible, insulate underneath the basement slab and on the outside of foundation walls.

Pop of Color

A lot of people struggle with adding color to their home, especially in the kitchen! One easy way to break out of the white, grey, beige and black mold is by adding colorful bar stools. They instantly add a pop of color that makes the room feel brighter and more interesting and they are not permanent... you can replace them easily once you're ready for a new color scheme. Let's take a look at some of our past clients bar stool choices and a few other inspirational photos taken from other sources.

Tiny but Powderful...

What do you do when your space is limited but you really want, or in some cases, need a main floor bathroom? One option is adding a small bathroom or powder room. This is a bathroom that fits within your existing blueprint and doesn't require a total overhaul or home remodel to make it work within your space.  Here at Quartersawn, we love anything that will make your life and household run smoothly. Check out some of our powder rooms and small bathrooms below.

Metal Railings We Know and Love

We love custom details! Incredible metal railings happen to fall into this category.  We've installed railings in new homes as well as in remodeled homes we've designed and built. In either setting, they stand out as a modern, sophisticated design statement.
