We could very well have had Columbus's Day, Have you ever heard of Bartholomew Columbus? Well he was Christopher Columbus broter, there is some disagreement to whether he is a elder or younger broter. Its said they both planned the ocean voyage, and both traveled around Europe tryen to raise money for the voyage. But Christopher got the money that he needed and sailed off with out Bartholomew. But no one seems to know why he got left behind. But if Bartholomew had not, we could very well have had the holiday called Columbus's Day.       Baker Home and Commercial Properties InspectionsPO Box 570Charlestown, New Hampshire 03603Office: 603-826-4207Cell: 603-477-8072   Link to Baker Home and Commercial Properties Inspections Website       Disclaimer: Any of the information herein may come f...

Do you know that you can actually see the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans at the sametime, yes you really can. Althouugh here in the United States, they are more than 2,500 miles apart. There are spots in Central America where the two biggest oceans in the world, are actually separated only by 50 miles or less of land. Take Panama for instance, the problam lies in the lay of the land, there are not any mountains that could offer you a view of the Atlantic and Pacific at the same time. But if you go to Costa Rica, its 11,325 foot Mount Izaru, is the one an only point in the world which one can actually view both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans at the sametime.             Baker Home and Commercial Properties InspectionsPO Box 570Charlestown, New Hampshire 03603Office: 603-826-4207Cell: 603-4...

You just might find this to be Strange, you know it more than likely is going to sound mighty strange to hear someone say that rain keeps Mother Earth dry, but thats exactly what it does. The process that generates precipitation gathers moisture from the air and concentrates it in the clouds, which later deposit the water in the form of rain. If that moisture didn't condense to form rain, then the atmosphere would be unbearably humid. All of Mother Earth would be heavily coverd with moisture, and life as we know just might not exist.       Be Happy and use the Rain!!!             Baker Home and Commercial Properties InspectionsPO Box 570Charlestown, New Hampshire 03603Office: 603-826-4207Cell: 603-477-8072   Link to Baker Home and Commercial Properties Inspections Website       Disclaim...

A Whole Different kind of Septic System Windsor County Vermont Part 2 of 3, why think about installing a Composting Toilet, for your new construction home, or if your needing to replace, your existing private septie system.

Vermont First Time Home Buyer what really matters,The home buying process can be mighty stressful at times. A home inspection is supposed to give you peace of mind, but some times has the opposite effect. Your going to be asked to absorb a lot of information in a very short time frame. This often includes a written report or a checklist, depending on the report the home inspector you hire uses.   A report with photographs is the best report to have, environmental reports and what the inspector himself says during the inspection. All this combined with the seller's disclosure and what you notice yourself makes the experience even more overwhelming. What should you do? ( Relax ). Most of your inspection will be maintenance recommendations, life expectancies and minor imperfections. These ...
