3 Projects to Hone Your Home Improvement Skills During Stay at Home Orders

Now that you’re spending all your time at home, you’re probably noticing everything you’d like to change about your house. Whether it’s making your living room more livable or finally fixing up that old bathroom, there’s never been a better time to dive into good, old-fashioned, DIY home improvement. However, with non-essential businesses on hold, you can’t exactly invite a team of contractors into your house. Instead, turn to DIY projects like these to keep your hands busy and your home improving during the quarantine.

Optimize Closet Organization

Are you starting to feel suffocated by clutter now that you’re stuck at home? If so, take control of your house’s clutter problem with a storage makeover. These projects will transform your home’s messy storage areas into an organizer’s dream.

  1. Need more storage space? Add functionality to existing closets with custom storage solutions, like these wooden organizers and closet door shelves.
  2. Transform a walk-in closet or pantry with custom DIY built-ins or by installing an out-of-the-box closet system.
  3. Ditch the disorganized spice rack by building a DIY spice rack that keeps your culinary supplies organized and right where you need them.

Build a Raised Bed Garden

Victory gardens are seeing a resurgence in popularity during the coronavirus pandemic. Why not start one of your own as a fun weekend project? Raised bed gardens keep plantings contained and are a great way to add interest to a front or backyard.

  1. First, build your raised bed using a natural hardwood like cedar. You can construct a prefabricated raised bed kit or build one from scratch.
  2. Automated watering makes it easy to keep garden plants healthy. Read Seattle Urban Farm Company’s drip irrigation FAQ to learn how to set up an efficient drip irrigation system in your garden.
  3. Now you’re ready to plant! Check if garden centers near you offer curbside pick-up of garden plants. If not, you can buy seeds and start your own in a simple DIY cold frame.

Redo Your Bathroom

Are you ready to test your skills with a more complex DIY project? Bathroom renovations are one of the best projects for adding value to your home. While you might not be able to complete a full remodel on your own, there are lots of DIY-friendly bathroom projects you can do.

  1. Warm up with an easy project: replacing bathroom hardware. New faucets and cabinet hardware modernize your bathroom’s look and can be installed in under an hour.
  2. Tiling a shower or tub surround isn’t a project for the impatient, but if you pull it off, it’s a great way to give your bathroom a fresh, clean look. For best results, choose self-spacing tiles and glue tiles using mastic rather than mortar.
  3. Tile can only do so much. If your bathtub is showing its age, refinish it to fill in cracks, cover stains, and make your old tub look like new.

How to Pay for Home Improvements

DIY projects save money, but they’re not always cheap. If you need money to pay for home improvements, think twice before putting it on a credit card. While credit cards are a good tool for expenses you’ll pay off quickly, they’re not the best way to finance big projects. Home equity financing offers lower interest than credit cards, and in some cases, you can even roll the expenses into your mortgage. For the best rates, consider refinancing your mortgage. With mortgage rates currently low, you’ll save compared to a HELOC and will only have one loan to manage instead of two. Mortgage rates are in flux, however, so be sure to talk to your lender before making any important financial decisions.

These DIY projects are a great way to keep busy during the coronavirus quarantine, but make sure you don’t bite off more than you can chew. You’ll get the best results by sticking to projects that are comfortably within your skillset. When businesses reopen, you can turn to trusted local contractors to take what you’ve started and use it to transform your house into a dream home.

Avoidable Delays in Remodeling

What fun it is to look at all the gorgeous rooms in magazines! Doesn't it get our "wanter" going and stir up our lack of satisfaction with our homes! I have to admit, I am so vulnerable to being impatient about redecorating or in my old dated bath or kitchen.

That is a great thing! After all, updating the kitchen, bath, and master suite does increase the value of your home. The investment pays off in the end. However, we need wisdom and patience. Remodeling projects are not short lived. They take months! Yes, MONTHS! Why does it take so long? There are many reasons. I will touch on a few in this post.

Remodeling takes thought and planning. I suggest, the minute you begin to imagine a future project is the time to make a Design Dream Folder. Begin collecting pictures of rooms you like. Writing down your thoughts as you enter, work in , and leave your kitchen, bath , or other space you are considering remodeling is an excellent analysis.

The first delay you may run into can be prevented. Being thoughtful and purposeful putting together your Dream Folder will establish your taste and preferences. As you collect images you will soon realize there is a common thread in which images you like. Are the colors warm and bright or cool and calm? Are the cabinets simple, classic and white or a rich wood satin perhaps accented with a glaze. What about the flooring? Is it warm natural wood or natural stone or tile? How about the windows? Do you prefer a bright light filled room?

The questions above are the answer to how to avoid delays in your project. Most delays begin and get bottled up in the selection process. Each project has multiple selections that have to be made before the project can truly get started. If it is a kitchen remodel, cabinets take 8 to 10 weeks to arrive once ordered. That alone speaks of the importance of knowing your taste and preference asap. Often we girls struggle with this first choice. All of the cabinets create gorgeous kitchens. You have to consider how you function in your kitchen. Are you a fastidious housekeeper that will keep white cabinets clean? Are you better suited to wood stained cabinets that can be more forgiving if something  splashes on them?   If you have a heart for both , you can always make the Island Cabinetry a contrasting color to add drama.

Here is the biggest "time trap" we fall into. Are you ready?   Women love to share with friends and family what they are doing! That is what friendship is about, after all. As a Designer, I have watched projects be delayed by confusion and second guessing more than any other reason. What do I mean?
It is human nature to ask people what they think, what they would do. This can be a huge trap. Once you ask, you open yourself up to opinions of anyone you requested feedback from.

Here at Apple Wood we enter the all important "Build Phase" on a first come first serve basis. To clarify, please understand "First" does not mean the first homeowners who come in to talk about wanting to do a project. It means the "First" homeowners completing the selection process, approving the design, making a deposit, and signing the contract. That is the only fair way to create our Build schedule.

Generally speaking the public thinks the entire project should take two to three months from first interest to completion. I have worked in this business for over twenty years. Every designer experiences the shock and dismay of clients, coming in to "get their kitchen project started in September for a new kitchen to be completed for Thanksgiving". If you are working with a reputable
Contractor whose business is successful, the answer is going to be, "we are booked until at least late Winter into early Spring." I know, that is a truth you do not want to hear. That is the reason I strongly suggest your Dream Design Folder begin as early as possible so you can meet deadlines.

We are ready, able , and looking forward to helping you with your Dream Project. Call us and make an appointment for a in-home consult. You will be glad you did!

Who Do You Trust With Your Home, Family, and Things?

Can I brag a little, please? Not about myself, about the Santosuosso's!
I love working for Lenny and Lisa!  They do not compromise quality or customer satisfaction. They tell you the truth, price competitively, and follow through. The finished product will be as agreed. You will be happy and proud of the results. You will enjoy the peace of mind working with honest, committed, hard working professionals brings. You will trust that your home, family, and belongings are safe.  

We all want to be work for people our integrity and sensibilities are aligned with. That can be hard to find, unfortunately. I am so grateful to be employed at Apple Wood Kitchen and Bath for that very reason. I am Cynthia, the girl answering the phone and greeting you when you visit our showroom after 1 PM Tuesdays through Thursdays and all day Friday. 

I have been a Design/Sales professional in the remodeling and design industry in Southern California, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire for twenty years.  I began to learn kitchen bath design at Lowe's Home Improvement Centers in Orange County,CA.. I wanted to provide more excellent Customer Service to clients, so I began to pursue positions in privately owned Kitchen and Bath showrooms. Growing in expertise prepared me to design for exclusive Design Build firms in Boston and Southern New Hampshire. I am very blessed to work with Lenny and Lisa who epitomize excellence on design,craftsmanship, and building acumen surpassing many I have been previously employed by. My experience has taught me how the industry works, who is skilled and trustworthy, who is not.    

The title of this post, who do you trust, is very important! Why? Selecting the professional you award a remodeling project to impacts your life very personally. It is easy to get tunnel vision in your excitement about upgrading your home, especially if all you are considering is cost. The cost versus value percentages are extremely important while considering any projects you want completed in your home. Please stop and think about this! You are trusting this person and their employees in your home, around your mate, your children, pets,and all your belongings.

Projects take months. There is a  common mistake made by busy homeowners. Perhaps you had some plumbing, electrical, or carpentry issue happen. You needed someone to come fix whatever needed attention. A local handyman or carpenter took care of it in less than a day. It is only natural to consider them again for more work. However, the scope of a design and build remodeling project requires a much higher level of experience, most handymen do not possess.

A new kitchen, bath, basement finish project has multi steps that require sophisticated applications. They are not the same thing as taking a few hours or a day off from work to have a handyman to fix something in your house. The choice you make about who you award a big project to has to be accomplished very purposely. Here is why. Can you trust them to care for your home, be interacting with your family, children and pets? Are they part of the community, dependable, and available for any issues after the job is complete? What is their reputation?

Rather then a enduring an upset to your normal schedule and functionality in your house for a few hours, a remodeling project takes months. Do they take pride in workmanship and leaving your home as neat as possible every night when they leave for the day? Are they bonded and insured?
What is their reputation with local inspectors and the community building license board? Are they known to complete the jobs they start? We have all heard the nightmare stories of homeowners being duped by supposed  professionals who take a large deposit, show up a few days to start the job, then disappear! Yes, unfortunately, this is common. Homeowners must seriously and research anyone they consider awarding their project too.

Every homeowner MUST ponder and seriously consider who they will hire to remodel their home.  Yes, price is important! I am not minimizing the importance of cost.  Apple Wood Construction and Apple Wood Kitchen and Bath are competitively priced. If there is any business where the old adage, "You get what you pay for." , is true, it is in the design and construction business. The products are important and often drive price. Beautiful kitchens and baths can be designed and built in many price ranges, depending on product selection. The selection process is daunting, especially for us gals. When you walk into the the tile, appliance, granite or quartz, or lighting showroom, practicing self control is the only way to stay on target for your budget.The quantity of choices is overwhelming when you see all the options. It is very easy to blow your budget if controlling your emotions and practicing self control is difficult.

Here comes the bragging! Details plus organization are key to producing excellent results. The comparison between awarding your project to a Design Build Firm such as Apple Wood versus a 
big box retailer or Handyman type carpentry business is critical. Peace of mind during the months it takes to begin and complete your project will have stress filled moments. If you are acting as your own general building contractor expect to be frustrated and stressed out. As a Design Build
company we handle all the scheduling, ordering or supplies, and management of installations for you.

As a Designer, handing over my clients and the paperwork to the build team was hard for me.
This was especially true when working at Lowe's. Why? Well, they rely on whoever approaches them claiming they are experienced installers, etc. They are not Lowe's employees, they are 
freelance carpenters, handymen, plumbers, and other sub contractors. Sometimes they were not as skilled as they claimed. This is very scary for the Design Sales person and the homeowner. You lose your interaction with the designer your confidence was established with. The other weaknesses I have seen in the industry includes good contractors who take on more work then they can handle excellently. Money can become the focus rather than craftsmanship.  Cutting corners is tempting when you have made contracts with more homeowners than you have time or adequate crew to handle the load.  Hopefully none of these scenarios happen to you. However, I could tell you stories! 

Lenny is a straight shooter and a perfectionist. He will not promise something he cannot follow through with. He does not tolerate sloppy work. He is very precise and demands precision and excellence from any subcontractor working in your home to complete your project. He is neat and fast! Lenny hates clutter and messes. He will tidy up the work area every night  in your home. 
His stamina, craftsmanship and skill is unsurpassed. He is an excellent time manager who knows what he can handle and will not compromise. He does not take on more work than he can handle to the best of his ability. He is dependable, thorough, and a perfectionist focused on details.

As I said, I love working for Apple Wood Construction and Apple Wood Kitchen and Bath. I love the confidence I enjoy recommending Lenny and Lisa to clients. I know they will keep their word and take care of every family and home as if it was their own.

Combining the Old, New, and Not Yet

My husband is currently jacking up the Mudroom of our house! What does that mean?
For a year or two our back door is getting harder to open. The door is dragging across the
wood floor scratching it. I am so thankful to be married to man who knows what is wrong and how to fix it. There are so many things to maintain, add to, or change in our homes to make them functional.

Driving through the rural towns of New Hampshire, especially in the Fall season fills our hearts with joy as we enjoy historical as well as newly constructed homes nestled in our forests. What a variety we enjoy here!

Older homes require special care and the expertise to keep them beautifully functional. How about you? Are you in love with New Hampshire or Massachusetts old Colonials, New Englander's, Post and Beam Homes or barns converted into houses? Do you live in a family home handed down through the generations? We cannot rebuild as they did in years past. However, we can update them .  New kitchens, baths, mudrooms, bedroom or family room additions can be designed and built seamlessly marrying the charm of the old with the convenient function of new methods. New products complimenting and enhancing the beauty of  an older home create the updated technological improvements we all enjoy in 2017. 

One of the fun things about a career in remodeling is seeing so many of  historical homes with original features. Some have kitchen hearths and bun ovens. I have designed and coordinated the installation of kitchen additions fortunate enough to "keep" the historical items in place while designing and building a new kitchen with all the conveniences of this century within the same room or very close by. These homes take the warmth and nostalgia of our rich history to a higher level. Being invited to special Holiday Events by the owners of an Historical Home is truly a special treat!

Built in china cabinets, bathroom shelves and drawers surrounded with original moldings are still in excellent condition in some older homes. Many Craftsman homes have this type of built in cabinetry throughout the house.

Many of these Historical Homes are in some of New Hampshire's cities, some in the country, or little villages between the two. We are surrounded with a rich tapestry of beautiful homes of all sizes and design styles. The homes that happen to have acreage are especially beautiful. I love seeing gardens, horses, livestock, and family pets.

 Mud Rooms are an integral and important addition to New England homes. "Mud" being a very appropriate term, especially for homes with land, gardens, and animals to care for. Most animals do not enter the house. Dogs are the exception. I want to share some fairly new features many homeowners are considering and installing when remodeling these days.  Function is key yet cabinet manufacturers, along with plumbers and tile designers and retailers have met a need very creatively! What could that be?

Let me set the scene. Often the mudroom is near the kitchen entrance and pantry or laundry area. These "necessary " rooms, especially in New England are set apart from the living or dining room areas where you socialize with friends and gather as a family. These functional areas are perfect for receiving the homeowner after working outside. Generally located near a back door and or the garage they help keep other rooms tidy, neat, and clean. Mud Room is the perfect description.

What special features are designed for this space? For awhile now, designing a wall or corner configuration of cabinets to hang coats, hats, scarves, gloves and umbrellas has become very popular.
Since our winters can be raw we are in need of multi layers of jackets to heavy coats, hats, gloves, the more room you can spare for this practical space, the better! Here are a couple of ideas my clients have found key.
1. Seating that functions as hidden storage is perfect. It gives you a place to sit for ease taking off
2. Tall cabinets to anchor cabinets on two walls meeting in a corner allow more hidden storage.
3. Wall Panels like Bead Board add a country rural feel. If your home is more formal a Raised or
    Recessed Panel to match your kitchen cabinet doors works perfectly too. Picture the anchor Tall
    Cabinets connected at the base to the seating cabinets. The wall panels connect it all finished off
    with beautifully stained Solid Stock installed horizontally accessorized with sturdy coat hooks. The     final touch being crown molding on the tall cabinets as well as the expanse of the solid stock trim.
4. If the square footage allows, some deep "Pots and Pans " Drawer bases are perfect for hat, scarf,
    and gloves storage.
5. This is also a perfect place for some Trash and Recycling Cabinets.
6. A handy and convenient black board or bulletin board to keep track of dates for activities would be
    a great addition too.
7. I have actually designed a work space with shelves into Mud Rooms occasionally. They became
    excellent drop off points for the kids homework assignments , books , etc. The routine of  knowing     that is where everything is can help keep the kitchen counters and island less cluttered.
It may not be practical or possible to integrate all these options. It is a great idea to consider  what would be best for your lifestyle.

Okay, are you ready for a fairly new trend? I think the practicality of it will win you over, if you have four legged family members, especially big dogs. Recently there has been an interest in a new focus in these rooms as well. It is a practical "luxury" that also keeps the rest of your home free and safe from dirt or mud being tracked in by your pets.

Building in a corner doggie shower is the new rage! People who have them do not know how they managed with out them before! What? A dog shower? Okay stay with me, I will explain.
Have you had to clean up your bathroom walls, tub, shower after "finally " breaking down and bathing your dog? Yeah, how did you like that?

Adding a shower pan in a corner of your mudroom, with tile extending up the walls 3 to 5 feet is a perfect dedicated place to bathe your pets , "BEFORE" they walk  through your clean house with mud all over them or their feet. This is a mini shower with plumbing and a faucet you can extend to wash and rinse "Buddy" as you get all the yuck taken care of in one easy convenient place.

As I said , our clients who have them wonder why they did not think of this years ago! Once again the quote Necessity is the mother of invention" rings true!

If you have a mud room or any other area of your home, new or historical or anywhere in between that needs some updating and attention. Give us a call. We love to listen to your ideas, dreams, and wish list. Even better, we can , do and will help you make it all come true!

A Little History

Did you know we do EVERYTHING?

What? Really? Yes, really!

Most of the blog posts I do are about our kitchen, bath, and other remodeling projects. I'm going to diversify today. There are endless projects homeowners need and want so please bare with me while I clue you in to the exciting truth of all Apple Wood can accomplish for you.

 I know that is uncommon. How can that be? Well, it is past time for me to let you know ANY need, interest, or improvement to your home inside or out can be accomplished here by Apple Wood Construction or Apple Wood Kitchen and Bath. Yes, it is true! Our showroom was created to help our new home construction clients have an opportunity to see the quality of our products and craftsmanship.

Apple Wood Kitchen and Bath was created only 5 years ago. Lenny was diligently searching for a kitchen and bath remodeling company he felt confident to refer the clients he was building custom homes for or remodeling to work with. He partnered up with a few professionals hoping to find a synergistic match with so they could team up and benefit his new custom home customers. The process was not successful for various reasons. The primary one was Lenny's commitment to excellent craftsmanship, work habits, and caring for his clients and their property was not duplicated to his satisfaction. Lenny is a perfectionist and does not accept shoddy habits or workmanship.

 Apple Wood Kitchen and Bath was established to provide our clients the quality we stand for in all our businesses. After being disappointed a few times trusting the remodeling professionals he hoped would work well with him, Lenny realized there was only one way to insure excellence. He needed to open the remodeling kitchen and bath division of Apple Wood to compliment his original construction company Apple Wood Construction. 

Lenny is a true renaissance man who learned his trade as an apprentice after going to a vocational high school to learn the construction trade. By the time Lenny was seventeen, he was an experienced carpenter and craftsman. The family pride in helping home owners has continued for generations in the Santosuosso family. Now, Lenny the fourth is learning the business along side his Dad. You gotta love that! It is so rare these days to encourage our youth to pursue a career of craftsmanship and creativity.

In addition to our Design Build approach to building new homes, remodeling older homes, kitchens, and baths, Lenny also does decks, additions, siding, windows, fireplaces, flooring, remove supporting walls to create open concept homes. If you want something done around the house chances are Apple Wood can do it for you.

Referral and repeat business is what all construction professionals hope for. Apple Wood thrives on repeat business. Once a homeowner experiences our design expertise and Lenny's craftsmanship, their wish list for home improvement projects expands. It is very common for our clients to tell us to get ready and prepare to get the thumbs up to do the bath, or kitchen, or a garage, or the deck next.

Think about the importance and value of working with a contractor who can do any and everything you want or need. It is extremely rare for one homeowner to afford every project they want to do all at the same time. However, to have the freedom to brainstorm and prioritize the current project keeping future ones in mind saves time, stress and money. Working with one company , hopefully Apple Wood,  helps eliminate the issues that may arise hiring different companies for different projects.

So how did our Kitchen Bath Showroom come into being? Why is it what everyone associates  Apple Wood with? Let me explain. When you are a General Contractor you are overseeing every component needed to build a complete home or business building. You build a team of sub contractors you trust , rely on and hire to build your clients home or business. The GC has to research, contact, and develop a working relationship with electricians, plumbers, roofers, siding companies, flooring, tile, and kitchen and bath designers and showrooms. The Contractor works hard to find synergistic  partnerships with subs he can count on to be committed to the same level of quality he is. That can be quite a challenge.  

 Initially, Lenny endeavored to find Kitchen and Bath showrooms and professionals he was confident in. They needed to be ethical, dependable, organized, and detailed. They needed to have the same commitment to excellence Lenny has. After having difficulty finding someone to work the decision was made to open his own cabinet showroom. Too many compromises were happening working with outside Kitchen and Bath professionals and showrooms. That is how Apple Wood Kitchen and Bath was born. We have been much happier and so have our clients.

If there is any profession where being OCD and a perfectionist is a good thing, it is remodeling. In fact , I would go so far as to say, those attributes should be present in anyone remodeling homes.
Think about it. Remodeling an existing space is a combination of art, creativity, math , and craftsmanship. If any of those ingredients are missing, the results will be lacking.

I love working for the Santosouosso's for many reasons. They are people of their word, dependable, honest and excellent at their craft. Your project will be competitively priced, on budget, and on time. You will not be disappointed. I would be so bold to say, you will be a client for life.

Come see us and find out for yourself!
