The Money Pit Home Is for Sale — and It May Be an Actual Money Pit

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 16:45:00 -0400

Before there was Chip and Joanna, there was Tom Hanks and Shelley Long in the classic 1986 film The Money Pit. The duo starred as two yuppies who buy a sprawling estate for just $200,000 in a distress sale. But naturally, nothing goes right when they attempt to move into the home, which ends up being a deathtrap with collapsing stairs, a bathtub that falls through the floor, and even a resident raccoon.

A Cozy English Cottage in Illinois — House Tour

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 17:00:00 -0400

Name: Christine and Gabe Bridger, Emelia and Jenson
Location: Evanston, Illinois
Size: 3,000 square feet
Years lived in: 4 years, owned

During long summer walks, the Bridger family would peer into the windows of this 1920s cottage. When it finally became available, they purchased it without even stepping foot inside. The home was not period correct, nor was the space very functional, so they opened up every wall possible without losing the historic charm. During the renovation, the contractor team removed drywall in the kitchen and bathroom to deal with electrical issues. Upon seeing the beautiful brick behind the drywall, they made an "in the moment" decision to keep it (even with the possible heat loss and crumbling). They also used old bed posts for the kitchen island, barn wood as open shelving, and turned a bedroom into a charming sun room. This home was designed to be lived in and loved — it's charming, cozy, and inviting.

How To Make a Small Apartment More Fun for Your Cat

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 16:00:00 -0400

Cats who live in apartments face one very serious threat: boredom. Cat behavior problems—aggression, waking owners up in the middle of the night, obsession with food, and more—can often be traced back to a simple lack of stimulation. Though cats are often considered to be low maintenance pets, most do need some form of entertainment and activity each day.

The Dark Side of Decluttering: Have You Ever Regretted Getting Rid of Something?

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 15:00:00 -0400

We talk about getting rid of stuff all the time and laud the benefits of getting more and more things out of our homes. Freedom! Negative space! Less to clean and organize! While these are all most definitely positive effects of shedding excess, it's possible that in our maybe-too-hasty pursuit of an ideal that may or may not be your own, we have some casualties, we lose things forever at our own hand and then feel the pang of missing them.
