The Demise of Granite

What's more popular than granite

It’s funny. At the first of the past several (at least 5) years, I’ve seen articles claiming that granite is “out.” Yet here we are in 2014 with no substantial change in the marketplace. While I do believe that there will eventually be a bigger, better countertop option to replace the popularity of granite, I’m […]

Featured Features – Hidden Kitchen Storage

Hidden Kitchen Storage

One of the complaints I hear often is that homes today don’t have enough character, which for most people means they don’t have a lot of the cool architecutral features that older homes have.

Parade of Homes 2012

Mulholland addition of Edmond OK

You probably noticed in yesterday’s summary of what we saw, when perusing Parade Homes Monday, that we look at more than just the pretty stuff. We really enjoy seeing great function and useful features, such as energy-efficient upgrades, although the pretty stuff definitely gets our attention. Here are a few of our favorites from yesterday’s […]

The 2011 Parade of Homes is in full swing and there’s a ton of great stuff out there to see. If we tried to show you everything we loved, we’d be posting pictures here for weeks, so instead we’re just going to show you a few each day for now. Here are a few of […]

Garage Door Magic

Mesta Park, Heritage Hills

Most of us probably haven’t spent much time contemplating garage door design, but many folks have cursed the frustration that goes along with modifying a historical home or building to match their needs.

Edmond Oklahoma Kitchen Design

Last week, you got to see a great video about useful, functional kitchen design concepts, but wait until you see the Galley Sink. This hot new sink will blow your mind with ideas of how efficient and useful your kitchen space could actually be. Imagine having a huge sink that you can prep, cook, clean, […]
