Deer In The Backyard

We receive no building code enforcement at #321Broadway.

We hired a shady contractor to replace our foundation.

Kevin Oberhouse d.b.a Toledo Basement Repair / DIVERSIFIED GROUP LLC started working, removed our entire foundation, got six RED TAG / STOP WORK ORDERS and then abandoned the job.

The city of Maumee Division of Building Inspection and Zoning was incompetent and malicious in their treatment of us and our home, made error after error, told lie after lie and then abandoned the job.

The city of Maumee has made so many mistakes and told so many lies that they now just ignore us.

We painted #PublicNuisance on the front of our historic home five months ago and not one person associated with the city of Maumee, Ohio has said one word about it.

Mayor Rich Carr is lying!

One of the most common home improvement projects is a kitchen remodel. Rather than attempting to do this work alone, a homeowner needs to hire professionals to help them out. The following are some of the things a homeowner needs to think about before hiring kitchen remodelers in their area.

Getting a Look at Their Previous Work

The first thing a homeowner needs to consider before hiring a remodeling company is what the contractor’s previous work looks like. In most cases, a remodeling company will have an extensive portfolio to show prospective customers. By taking a look at this portfolio, a homeowner can get a feel for what a company is capable of.

A homeowner will also need to go online and look at the reviews a remodeling company has gotten from former customers. Ideally, a homeowner wants to hire a company with a consistent track record of providing … Read More

West Adams Heights

“Nowadays we scarcely notice the high stone gates which mark the entrances on Hobart, Harvard, and Oxford streets, south of Washington Boulevard. For one thing, the traffic is too heavy, too swift; and then, again, the gates have been obscured by intrusions of shops and stores. At the base of the stone pillars appears the inscription “West Adams Heights.” There was a time when these entranceways were formidable and haughty, for they marked the ways to one of the first elite residential areas in Los Angeles. . . In the unplanned early-day chaos of Los Angeles, West Adams Heights was obviously something very special, an island in an ocean of bungalows—approachable, but withdrawn and reclusive—one of the few surviving examples of planned urban elegance of the turn of the century.”

– Carey McWilliams, “The Evolution of Sugar Hill,” Script, March, 1949: 30.

Today West Adams Heights is still obviously something special. The past sixty years, however, have not been kind. In 1963 the Santa Monica Freeway cut through the heart of West Adams Heights, dividing the neighborhood, obscuring its continuity. In the 1970’s the city paved over the red brick streets and removed the ornate street lighting. … Read More

Five Popular Trends In Kitchen Remodeling

Posted Posted in General Article

Kitchen remodeling is a great way to breathe new life into an older home and the best news is that you may be able to recoup quite a bit of the costs involved when the time comes to sell your house. Remodeling Magazine's 2010-2011 Cost vs. Value survey estimates that homeowners can expect to receive about 69 percent of the costs associated with a major kitchen remodel in a mid-level home back in their pocket when their home is purchased. That percentage may vary a little depending on where the house is located, but few other home improvement projects offer that much return on your investment.
