While visiting a job site yesterday, I came across this repair job on a hot water flue. (Please note that we did not make this repair, it was done previous to our arrival on the job.) The repair is an old Folgers coffee can clamped around a furnace flue pipe.

As adults, we understand all too well the importance of being Eco-friendly and environmentally conscious. Green living is a part of who we are and we are proud of it. In our many efforts to lead green lives we forget to actually teach our children the reasons behind our green methods and the importance of saving the earth.
We are putting the finishing touches on a lower level finish. Part of this basement was finished years ago by a previous homeowner and we were able to expand on that for an economical addition to this home. This expanded finished area includes a television room, half bathroom and storage closet.
Recently, certified remodeler Debby Allmon was featured in the Handyman section of the Kansas City Star. In the article, Debby addresses a reader’s question on the best types of paint to use to paint ceramic tile. Take a look at the reader’s question.
I'm just starting to think about options for moving and/or replacing my water heater. I'm fascinated with the idea of "tankless" systems. Is it really possible to have an entirely "tankless" house? Or must I still have a traditional water heater as well as the individually positioned "boosters" at each water point? I lived in China for a while and I did quite well without a central water heater and only a water heater for the shower.
Recently, a group of KC NARI members held a “virtual shower” for The Children’s Place in Kansas City.

We completed this kitchen remodel earlier this fall and it was such a delight to see that our homeowners are enjoying it and having fun with holiday decorating in their new space! We love the red décor with the cream/blue/gray colors of the kitchen.
