The recent real estate bust is a boom for the innovative home remodeling contractors. A group dubbed as “eco flippers” are buying foreclosed older homes and retrofitting them with more efficient heating and cooling systems; replace with energy-efficient thermostats; improve attic insulation; install greener appliances; install new energy efficient windows, doors and skylights; plant water conserving native plants in yards and sell remodeled homes for a quick profit.

The cost of remodeling an older home varies from state to state and region to region. In Houston, Texas the cost to remodel an older home cost between $75,000 and $120,000. Due to the energy saving improvements, remodeled homes are selling much faster than other older homes available for sale in the market.

When a glut of foreclosed homes are available in the market, it seems very difficult to sell a remodeled foreclosed home. However, the Earth Advantage Institute, and the National Association of Home Builders Research Center are overseeing the verification process and issue certificates making it much more easier to sell.

The selling point for remodeled home is its energy saving aspect. An older home that is half the size of a remodeled home could cost twice the amount for gas and electricity alone.

One of the rites of passage for almost every college student is acclimating to a dorm room that is often smaller than his or her old bedroom, while sharing that reduced space with a roommate. This cutback on personal space can come as a shock to many people, but there is often no way around it.

Fortunately, optimizing the space you’re given can be an experiment in creativity and can often end up being pretty fun. There are many ways to optimize space in a dorm room, so here are a few tips:

  • The Futon. The old college standard, this folding platform hybrid furniture can double as a bed or couch and save space. Replacing the stock pad with a foam futon mattress can make it as comfortable as any bed or couch you’ve sat on before, all while saving room. And having an extra folding bed with mattress space is always great for friends crashing for the night.
  • Lofts. Building a loft makes use of the vertical space in a room, freeing you to use the floor space however you want. A loft can stack two beds or have one bed in the air with a computer or seating area underneath. This concept can be extended all the way into building a treetop sleeping quarter that’s like adding another floor to the room!
  • Bean Bag Chairs. What’s more fun than a fluffy bean bag chair? Great for studying, relaxing and anything in between, today’s bean bag chairs come in a wide variety of colors, fabrics and even filling material so you can have a seat just the way you want. Bean bag chairs can fit into tight spaces where conventional furniture won’t, and if you need extra space, they can be tossed on a bed, in the closet, or in the corner temporarily.
