Never Settle for a Home You Don't Love
When I was finally ready to purchase my first home after I graduated from college and found a stable job, I was on a tight budget. I settled for a house that was "good enough" for the time-being, but knew that in the future I would move to a larger one. Once I met my wife and she moved in, we thought about moving but loved the location of our home and had made great friends with the neighbors. For years, we thought we had "to settle" with the home we had since we didn't want to move, but recently, we decided to have several of our rooms remodeled. We are now in love with our home and think everyone should live in a home they love! We decided to start a blog to share what we learned about home construction and remodeling during the process!

Much like animals, different types of trees are indigenous to different parts of the world. Some trees are extremely common while others are endangered and must be protected so they don't die out completely. Before you decide to cut down trees, make sure that they aren't endangered. Here are some of the most endangered trees in the United States.
Endangered Vs. Threatened
First things first, trees can be threatened or endangered.
Ash trees are often a great source of shading for your property, which is why it is bothersome when those once majestic trees start looking a bit lame. Before you resort to hacking down your trees, consider what might be causing the damage to your trees. In fact there are four ways you can tell if an Emerald Ash Borer – or EAB – is the cause of your tree's demise.
When you bought your home, you imagined you'd raise your family in it. But, with each child, and all their toys, it seems the walls in your house have moved closer together. You dream of buying a larger home to accommodate your growing family and all their needs, but you just can't afford it. If your family has outgrown the living spaces in your home and you cannot afford to buy something bigger, consider finishing your basement.
