Recent Remodeling

This is a guest post by my friend Alex Tarkelton

Our house was in need of a storm shelter. Where we live tornadoes are something we see all the time. We decided to do a bit of remodeling and add a cellar in our backyard. This would also increase the value of our home when we sell it someday. We did a lot of calling around but eventually went to homeproimprovement.com and finally found someone that would install it for us. For the peace of mind it would give me, I felt the price was more than fair.

Once our remodeling was done to our backyard, we had a nice new storm shelter. I got together items to take down there. It has a nice big metal door that closes tight. It has a ladder all the way down. It also has a light that you just pull the switch to turn on and also 2 plug ins. This is great for storms as long as the electricity does not go out on you. There are enough seats for about 6 people and this is great. I am really happy with this addition to our yard. It makes me feel safe to know I have somewhere to take our children in case of a storm.

We also recommend Royal Roofing for roofing specialist.

Shopping for Home & Garden online can save you a lot of money. There are lot’s of places to shop online, but how do you find where to find the best deals and compare prices? Recently we ran into a shopping search engine called Become.com. They offer shopping in various categories, including Home & Garden.

They let you search by categories or search terms and further define your search criteria by price, brand and even color. Their color pallet is actually pretty cool. We never seen anything like this on any other site before. It has thousands of colors you could pick from.

You could also narrow down your search by store name. You will also be glad to know that Ebay is one of the stores in their database, so you do not need to check Ebay for deals. You can search here for many stores, including Ebay.

Whenever you are ready to shop check out their Home & Garden category here.
