    Outdoor kitchen? Second-floor laundry? How to easily achieve summer's hottest home improvements - April 15, 2014 by Mr HomeBuilder

    (BPT) - Whether youre staying in place or planning to take advantage of an improving real estate market to sell your home, spring and summer are upgrade seasons. From adding a bathroom to creating an outdoor kitchen, certain improvements pay off for both homeowners who are selling and those who are staying. And while plumbing challenges, such as breaking through concrete or opening walls, may discourage some people, savvy homeowners know a tried-and-true option solves such problems.

    Above-floor plumbing can make it easy and cost-effective to achieve a number of plumbing-related improvements that add both value and enjoyment to a home, says Chris Peterson, Western regional sales director of SFA Saniflo Inc., a manufacturer of above-floor plumbing products. Plumbing is integral to some of todays trendiest improvements, like outdoor kitchens and second-floor laundry rooms. Choosing above-floor plumbing for these and other improvements means homeowners can make the alterations quickly, too.

    Above-floor plumbing encompasses both macerating systems for toilets (also known as up-flush plumbing) and drain pumps for kitchens and sinks. While traditional plumbing may require homeowners to take the risk of cutting into a concrete foundation or endure the inconvenience of opening walls, above-floor plumbing eliminates those concerns.

    Here are five hot summer home improvements that you can complete faster, easier and with less cost using above-floor plumbing:

    Create an outdoor kitchen

    Outdoor cooking areas, complete with sinks and wet bars, are in-demand improvements that boost home value. Often, the improvement starts with an existing concrete or brick patio, or wooden or composite deck. Traditional plumbing would require a contractor to break up patio material or cut into decking to accommodate pipes. Saniflos drain pumps make it possible to easily and efficiently install a fully functional sink without the need to disturb existing outdoor structures. When adding a new structure, above-floor plumbing can help reduce costs and construction time for sink installation.

    Add a wet bar

    What man cave or media room would be complete without a wet bar for entertaining? These rooms are not usually plumbed, and they are often in basements or on the first level of a slab-on-grade home where adding traditional plumbing would mean cutting into a concrete floor, which comes with a host of risks and inconveniences. Above-floor plumbing makes it possible to add a wet bar on a first level or in a basement entertaining area without having to cut concrete, and in upper-level rooms without having to rearrange the room to tie into existing pipes behind walls.

    Second-floor laundry room

    While many older homes have laundry facilities in basements or on the ground floor, demand is rising for laundry rooms that are on the same floor as bedrooms. Second-floor laundry rooms are a hot trend in new construction, but its also possible to renovate an older home and move the laundry upstairs. Traditional plumbing might require a homeowner to locate a second-floor laundry room adjacent to or even within an existing bathroom to take advantage of proximity to pipes. Above-floor plumbing makes it possible to locate laundry facilities where homeowners most need them.

    About Utah: A local app developer is remodeling the language barrier - April 8, 2014 by Mr HomeBuilder

    Curtis and Donell Pons have the solution to your language problems at their fingertips.

    Lee Benson

    SALT LAKE CITY Curtis Pons was trying to figure out how to remodel a kitchen when he had his Thomas Edison moment.

    Wait, thats not quite accurate.

    He was trying to figure out how to tell someone else how to remodel a kitchen.

    Curtis, 50, is the founder and owner of Yalecrest Building & Design, the company he started 20 years ago when he got into the construction business. Full-home remodels are his specialty. He typically runs a crew of six or seven guys, sometimes more, sometimes less, depending on the job.

    His workers are good workers, which is great, but almost all of them speak Spanish, which is sometimes not so great.

    When youre building things, communicating properly is important. Otherwise, the toilet might wind up in the den and the microwave might end up in the bathroom.

    For years, Curtis has battled the language barrier. Hes used every tactic he could think of to get his point across. Sign language, hand signals, charades, mimicry, talking louder, talking slower. When the Internet got sophisticated enough to use algorithms, allowing computers to talk to other computers and take a calculated guess at what people were trying to say to each other, he tried any number of language apps, with varying degrees of success.

    Then one day last summer it hit him:

    Stirn Contracting, Cincinnati, Specializing in Empty-Nest Kitchen, Bath and Home Remodels - April 1, 2014 by Mr HomeBuilder

    Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) March 31, 2014

    Stirn Contracting has been remodeling homes, baths and kitchens for the last eight years. Specializing in the latest and most efficient items for kitchens and baths has allowed them to realize the needs of Empty-Nesters when it comes to staying in their homes longer while keeping safety and convenience on the top of the list.

    One thing many home owners appreciate is sliding drawers in their base cabinets around the kitchen. We can provide sliding units for pantries and bath vanities as well. Enlarged pantry doors make it easier to get their groceries and supplies in and out. Extra lighting under the cabinets and additional electrical outlets are also helpful, said Rick Stirnkorb, co-owner of Stirn Contracting.

    Older homeowners are keeping their homes longer and as they age, convenience and safety are of the utmost importance.Stirn Contracting can move laundry rooms from the basement to the first floor or even to the second floor where the bedrooms are located. This eliminates transporting laundry up and down stairs, reducing the possibility of falling with an arm or basket full of clothes. Garages can be adapted and organized with shelves at lower levels and tools which are easily reached without standing on ladders or step stools.

    When replacing windows, tilt-in windows are easy to wash from the inside of the house. Adding handrails or installing new ones and bringing older homes up to code is also important. They have added wheelchair ramps for some clients and make sure the steps coming into the home are stable and secure.

    Rick started in the home construction business with his father in 1971. After the housing slump in the early 1980s, he switched his focus to commercial construction, but when his sons decided they wanted to learn the business, Stirn Contracting began focusing once again on residential homes. Now Rick and his son Eric provide a service for their customers which goes far beyond the normal remodel job. They remodel baths, kitchens, basements, laundry rooms, as well as building additions and complete remodeling jobs of whole houses.

    Businessman remodels Dell Curry's former home - March 24, 2014 by Mr HomeBuilder

    by ANJANETTE FLOWERS / NBC Charlotte

    Posted on March 24, 2014 at 4:58 PM

    Updated today at 5:00 PM

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- It's a mansion we've seen before, but nowadays it looks a lot different. Its the mansion former NBA player Dell Curry built for his family in 1996.

    Years later, Gerald Wallace bought it and NBC Charlotte got an exclusive look inside after he put it on the market. Then, we got another look inside when a Charlotte businessman bought it.

    Fast forward to today and it looks very different.

    The basketball court remainsfor now. But everything else has pretty much changed, starting with the grand entrance.

    "We created this large foyer that we have now, which is 15-feet by 25-feet, and that became the two-story foyer that we've got with that groin vault ceiling," said James Benham, president of Benham Builders.

    He added, "Those are 11-foot doors, and they probably weigh about 400 pounds apiece."
