Indoor or Outdoor Home Storage Shed?

Determining the type of storage unit might be the first decision to make when deciding on your next organization project. Let’s take a look at your options to give you an idea of how to remove the clutter from your life and organize it in your newly functional home storage sheds.

  • Indoor Home Storage Shed – When looking to organize items but not necessarily have them in a place outside of the home, consider an indoor shed. An indoor shed would be perfect for cleaning supplies, extra linens, or possibly as an extra pantry. An alternate pantry would give you the opportunity to store non-perishable items easily, or keep track of canned or slow-to-expire foods. Not only does it provide you with the space you need, but it would also be advantageous when shopping at big-box stores for whole-sale prices to save you money over time.
  • Outdoor Home Storage Shed – The possibilities truly seem endless when it comes to outdoor home storage shed ideas. This would include anything from gardening implements to lawnmowers and tractors. The sizes vary for easy installation into any outdoor space. So let your garage be the cover for your car and let the rest go into the home storage shed.

Get ready to get organized! Make organization easy by finding some much needed space in the form of home storage sheds!

3 Reasons to Consider Energy Efficiency in Your New Home

Moving is often stress-inducing, but more than that, it’s an opportunity. If you’re moving to the Houston area or if you already live there and want to move into a larger home, choose to live in the home of your dreams. Build a new home so you don’t have to worry about the problems associated with old properties or wait for the previous homeowner to move out. As long as you’re designing your dream home with a professional, pay close attention to the home’s energy efficiency.

The Savings

An energy-efficient home saves the property owner hundreds or even thousands of dollars per year. When undertaking custom home construction, it makes sense to think not just about the number of rooms you’d like, but also the ways to keep your utility bills down. In a hot, humid area like Houston, it’s especially important that you keep your air conditioning costs to a minimum. Minimize air leakage with tighter seals and using more energy-friendly windows.

The Air Quality

Energy-efficient homes aren’t just about doing your part for the environment or lowering your bills — they improve the quality of your life, too. We significantly decrease the use of toxic materials in your home’s construction and insulate it in such a way that moisture is less likely to leak in, which means mold and mildew are less likely to take root. This improves the quality of the air inside the home, making it a healthier place for people with asthma, allergies, and other health conditions.

The Efficient Use of Water

In hotter areas of the country, there are times when water is in short supply. Our homes use water more efficiently, so less is wasted. This not only leads to lower water bills, but also to more water available to you and your neighbors.

Work with experienced home designers and builders who work to incorporate energy efficiency into their buildings. Seize this opportunity and create a home that doesn’t just look amazing, but is also amazing in what it can do for you.
