Our New Bathroom Has a Separate Shower

When my wife decided she wanted to redo our bathroom, I was very happy about it. For a while, I had been wanting to have a separate shower from the bathtub because of my knees. I have arthritis, and it was just hard stepping over and into the tub when my knees would act up. I wanted to be able to just walk into the shower, so we started looking for a shower enclosure installer in NJ. Her brother was able to help with a lot of the work because he is in construction, but he had never put in a shower before.

He suggested that he help with the other remodeling ideas my wife had, and let a professional put in the shower stall for us. We had plenty of room in the bathroom to do this, and my brother in law drew out a floor plan that my wife absolutely loved. The only thing I cared about, to be honest, was getting a nice shower enclosure put in. My brother in law was able to give me the website address of a company that he said was well regarded, so I went to see what they have to offer.

Just as I only cared about the shower, my wife was happy to do everything else and let me focus on this one aspect of our new bathroom. I really liked the enclosures that had a bench inside too along with shelves that were built into the wall. For the days where my arthritis was really bad, I would be able to use the built in bench. The shelves would help to keep everything nice and organized in the shower. My wife loves our new bathroom, and it is actually quite funny because she uses the shower just as much as I do now!

Everybody Wants These Nice Shutters

I really liked what I saw when I went to a friend’s new home. She told me that the only thing she had changed was the window treatments, and that is one of the things that I liked the best. She told me that she had bought them from Orange County Shutters, a local company, and I knew that I was going to give them a look as well. That is the first time that I had ever been in someone’s home and wanted to duplicate the same look for my own, so that should explain just how nice these shutters are.

I had nice mini blinds in my own house at the time, but they paled in comparison to the shutters she had. The difference is not even explainable in nice terms. Continue reading

I Wonder if This House Makes Sense

There are a whole lot of moving pieces to this problem and I have been trying to look at it methodically. We have been looking for an affordable house and it has been hard to find what we want, but we have realized that there are sometimes homes which could be what we want, but only after we invest a good bit of time and money. We found this one place with a perfect location, but a lot of issues. For example we have gotten a Sacramento hvac contractor to come by and determine what we should do about the heat pump. It seems obvious that trying to fix it is probably not a good idea. Continue reading

Gas Barbeque Grills

The act of Barbequing or Grilling has been around as long as humans. Cavemen quickly realized that food tasted good after it was cooked over an open fire. Barbequing has become a standard American tradition for families. The reasons as clear as to why, not only does the food that comes from barbequing have a taste that is unmatched by other cooking methods, but it also gives a family a reason to gather outdoors. Today, over 90% of families in the united states hold or attend barbeque at least once a year. About 70% of all of the barbeques are held on a gas grill.


Gas grills work by a spark igniting the gas within the grill. Gas grills typically have a knob or button in which you push, which in turn activates a small hammer. The hammer hits the top of an ignition crystal. Then the burner mixes the gas with oxygen and spreads it all over the cooking surface. This makes the gas grill one of the easiest, and fastest grills to use.


Gas grills come in all shapes and sizes, which makes then ideal for just about any type of barbequing party. Smaller gas grills give you the portability needed to plan barbeque parties away from home. Larger gas grills are handy and efficient for cooking larger amounts of food quickly, and without the mess of other types of grills.


So after deciding that you indeed are in the market for a barbeque grill, there are several factors that you must consider when you purchase your first gas grill.




Gas grills literally come in all shapes and sizes. The type of grill you get should really depend on what you plan on using the grill for. If you foresee camping trips, barbeques at the beach, or tailgate parties, you may want to consider getting a smaller gas grill. Smaller gas grills can range from anywhere from 10 to 40 pounds. Portable gas containers are also available for these types of grills.


If your plans are move focused on home cooking, then larger grills should suit you fine.


Cooking Surfaces


Gas grills, unlike some of the other grills types, have the ability to come with many different types of cooking surfaces. These different cooking surfaces include a BBQ surface, a flat grill, and a ribbed grill. Some grills even offer these types of surfaces as none stick, which allow you to cook a whole array of foods that you would not be able to cook on a grill otherwise. You will be able to cook your whole meal, including side dishes if you plan correctly.


Some gas grills even contain a Wok type surface for cooking pasta and rise dishes, or a full rotisserie set that allows you to cook rotisserie chicken.



Surface Area


Similar to weight, you should consider the amount of cooking surface area you will need, depending on the situations you will be in. If you will only be cooking for yourself or you and one other, you will want a gas grill with a smaller surface area, as it will be easier to clean. If you plan on holding parties or cooking for a larger family, then you will want to consider a gas grill with a larger surface area.


This surface area may also include different types of cooking surfaces. Look for the type that suits you best, or is interchangeable.




Gas grills are typically on the higher end of the cost scale, as they require more mechanical parts then other grills. You can expect to spend anywhere from $50 for a smaller grill up to $400+ for a large stationary grill.


You also have to remember that you must also purchase the gas for your grill. Propane can be purchased at your local grocery store, superstore, or from a dealer. Bottoms come in all sizes, including miniature versions for portable gas grills.
