“You’re gorgeous, baby, you’re sophisticated, you live well…Vancouver is Manhattan with mountains. It’s a liquid city, a tomorrow city, equal parts India, China, England, France and the Pacific Northwest. It’s the cool North American sibling.” - The New York Times


Summer Home Improvements You Should Start NOW!

Now that the kids are out of school, and the sun is out, maybe it's time to make a few changes around the house! Here's some ideas on what you can do over the summer (maybe even with the help of your kids) to spruce up the home a little!

Gardening and Landscaping

Let's start off with someting easy. The best way to spice up your house is to plant some new flowers, or trim that old tree in your back yard! Maybe you can eventually turn your back yard into a beautiful garden when you become an expert! 

Backyard Renovations

Now that the sun's out, you're going to be spending a lot more time outside, so it's a good idea to transform that backyard into a place that you want to be! Maybe add that fire pit, or install that swimming pool that you've always wanted! Now is the time to do so! 

Pressure Wash

This is probably one of the easiest things you can do to freshen up the look of your home! You can also do this easily without the help of a professional. Just take a day to do so, and I guarantee you that your home will look as good as new!

Paint the Exterior

Applying a fresh coat of paint to the exterior may not seem like much, but you will be surprised at how much it can do for the appearance of your home!

Let us know which one of these ideas you did, and how it went! We would love to see the before and after pictures!
