    Posted on June 11 2017


    Gone are the days when master bedrooms had closets that could barely contain one person’s clothes—let alone a couple’s wardrobe.

  • Millennials Spend on Home Remodeling

    Posted on May 21 2017


    CNBC reports that millennials are among the top groups of people increasing the money spent on home remodeling projects. While the oldest homeowners are still the largest spending group, millenials are quickly coming in second with a seven percent increase in average money spent to remodel a home for an average of more than $26,000 a year.
