We spent all day Saturday and Sunday at the condo and I have lots of photos to share with you.  We are very excited about the kitchen, where the most dramatic transformation is taking place. We have tile on our little breakfast bar and kitchen wall.     It isn't grouted yet, but looks great. The kitchen wall got tile.The white squares on the wall are ivory tiles, not missing tiles.  We are randomly placing ivory throughout the brown to coordinate with the ivory trim on the bar.   We also started painting the kitchen...Ben Moore Ashley Gray                     We finished painting the Dining RoomHere is the view from the Dining Room into the Kitchen   Closets were paintedNasty carpet was removed from basement stairsFurniture refinishing has begun...transforming Nana's bedroom set for an ...

Yesterday I worked on a vacant condo and as it turns out came up with an idea for props that I found very useful.  It may not be very original and you may have already thougt of it, but I'm excited to share the idea.The condo is a restored older home and the kitchen has no upper cabinets.  The only lower cabinet is the one under the sink.  You know how useful that one is.The good news is that there are two pantry closets which are very roomy.  I wanted to display one closet for dishes, small appliances and pans and the other closet for food storage.  Originally, the plan was to pick up some canned goods and boxes of cereal for the closet. While packing my Jeep in preparation for the job, I went to add some paper to my recycling and it hit me...I pulled out several cereal boxes, a tea bo...

Sponsored by Federal Savings Bank, and the Dover Chamber Of Commerce.  The city of Dover New Hampshire held it's annual "state of the city" breakfast forum at the Cocheco County Club.The main topic of conversation for the morning was the recently voted legislation of a city wide tax cap.  Many budget cuts and limitations will need to be addresses due to the tax cap.  The tax cap was voted on, and passed back in November of 2007.  The main purpose of the tax cap was to limit "out of control" city spending and provide relief to elderly residents and young families.The most recent reality hit of the tax cap was felt in budget talks regarding Dover New Hampshire's Main Street Program.  Nearly 33% of the Main Street program funding comes from the city budget, but now may be cut due to the re...

Dover NH Homes | Dover NH Condos Dover NH real estate market showed some strong activity during 2007.  Average sales prices increased in homes and condos, average list-to-sell ratios stayed strong, and days on the market remained about the same as in the previous year.  The were fewer homes for sale, and yet there were more homes that sold in 2007 than 2006.This certainly sounds like a fairly robust market to me!  Especially when you compare it to all the negative news media reports about how down and dour real estate is. DOVER NEW HAMPSHIRE Real Estate Market Information for 2007:In 2006, there were 533 Dover NH homes offered for sale, and in 2007, we saw 434 homes offered for sale.  The average asking price in 2006 was $384,177, and the average asking price in 2007 was $359,899.The av...
