As a ‘pull-and-replace’ project, changing the layout to improve the functionality of this guest bathroom was not a concern. The emphasis was instead on replacing the dated features with new ones in the exact same location. These features included the bathtub, faucets, cabinets, countertop, mirror, and decorative lighting. With these updates, the bathroom would feel brand new, but keep the same layout and square footage it always had. Read the full story on our blog post!

Cancer StrongHER Tennis – Free Class!
Overcoming a cancer diagnosis is something worth celebrating, and what better way to celebrate and form lifelong friendships than with others who have gone through the same thing. Our featured community event for the month of June is a free tennis class for women cancer survivors, hosted by Cancer StrongHER.
Here is the event post via EventBrite:
In partnership with The Birch Racquet and Lawn Club and Keller Alliance Tennis Charter (KATCH), Cancer StrongHER is excited to bring free tennis classes to female cancer survivors! Classes are for female survivors of ALL cancers and are completely free-of-charge. Whether you are a beginner, an experienced player, or somewhere in between, we have the session just for you. We will provide the balls for everyone and loaner racquets for beginners. If you have a racquet, please bring it. Make sure to bring water and dress appropriately for the weather. Please watch our Facebook page and website closely for weather cancellations. To adhere to social distancing protocol, we are limited to 8 beginner players and 8 experienced players, so please reserve your spot quickly via Eventbrite, and please only register once per person. If you find the class is full, you will be placed on a waiting list to fill any cancellations. Summer classes will take place indoors. Let’s play some tennis!

Mike’s Guys Handyman: Why Gutter Maintenance Matters

Replacing old siding, trimming away vegetation, and routinely checking the shingles for damage are a few examples. Each of these tasks will help keep your home structurally sound, keeping out things like problem-causing water and pests. One of the easier home maintenance projects that might be overlooked is maintaining the gutter system.
Your gutters are a safeguard to prevent rainwater from pooling at your home’s foundation, causing flooding and damage. They are designed to drain water out and away from your house.

Failure to maintain your gutters could have drastic consequences! If you don’t think it’s a big deal and that rainwater will eventually wash away any debris, here are some of the issues you may find yourself dealing with down the road:
