RV renovation: Big changes, small decor touches make a motorhome feel homey | Food + Living

After being grounded for months, we’ve become antsy, craving adventure and escape. But with social distancing recommendations still clipping our wings, plane, bus and train travel seem worrisome.

Home still feels safer than anywhere else. What to do? Why, take that home on the open road. That’s precisely what a motorhome or camper lets us do. It’s no wonder that the RV Industry Association reports a sharp uptick in RV sales and rentals.

“Our inventory is down to a dozen vehicles,” says Autumn Quinn, marketing manager of Dylane RV Center, Denver. “Normally we would have about 80 vehicles on the lot. Spontaneity and freedom are key attractions to travel by RV, and they are precisely what families are looking for after all those COVID constraints.”

Lee Vought of Stoltzfus RV of Adamstown agrees. “We have four RVs in the lot. Normally, we’d have 100.”

Dealers say that RV manufacturers are

Living Room Ideas That Will Liven Up Any Space, Big Or Small – Living Rooms

Photographed by Amy Bartlam.

When we hear the words “living room makeover,” many of us think a few cans of paint and a new sofa — and don’t get us wrong, those two things can work wonders. But creating a welcoming, tranquil space is about so much more than the colors and the furniture. It’s about combining practicality with aesthetic so you can enjoy living in and looking at it at the same time. 

Before you go down a rabbit hole of living room ideas you’ll want to figure out how much space you’re working with. Measuring a room beforehand can save you tons of headaches down the road: You’ll know how many buckets of paint to buy, you can compare your space to similar-sized rooms on the internet, and you can think realistically about that oversized coffee table — before you have a chance to get too attached.

Basement Renovation Now Adds Value and Additional Living Space to Homes of all Sizes

Whether You Live in a Rural or Urban Property, Basement Renovation Now Can Restore All Types of Basement.

The team at Basement Renovation Now recognizes that basements are often dead space in properties, with the space dark, cold and used for storage of unnecessary items and junk. But renovating a basement can bring a variety of benefits to a property and in a very short space of time.

One of the major benefits of renovating a basement is the immediate increase it brings to the property’s value. In an urban location, the basement or the attic are often the only ways of increasing the living space within a home, and the basement often comes with the added benefit of being more accessible by all the family. In addition to this, adding value such as this to a property can really differentiate it in a competitive market, and generate many more

Occupational Therapists Enable Independent Living For Seniors Through Wellness Design Interventions

If your health is exemplary, if you have no physical or mobility challenges, if completing tasks you’ve always handled with ease is still easy, and if no one in your life suffers from any of these difficulties, you may never cross paths with an occupational therapist. And you’d probably be the exception, rather than the rule.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Occupational Outlook Handbook, OT jobs are expected to increase 16% by the end of the decade. A rapidly-aging population has much to do with that, especially the millions of seniors who want to continue living independently in their own homes. (The Covid-19 pandemic has likely increased this number too, as seniors in nursing homes have been especially hard hit by the virus.) Occupational therapists are the healthcare field’s wellness design facilitators.

Redwood Deck Remodel Offers Seamless Indoor/Outdoor Living

Built in 1999, the Harrison Lake home was purchased by the current homeowners in the fall of 2019. The home is primarily used as a weekend getaway during the warmer months from April to October. Besides the breathtaking views, the area holds special meaning for the family. The homeowner’s father and grandfather logged the area in the 1950’s, even living in a logging camp on Cascade Bay.

Upon acquiring the property, the homeowners undertook an extensive remodel, focusing on the interior kitchen and outdoor living spaces. In total, an impressive 1,200 square feet of outdoor living space was added. The addition includes a covered barbeque and outdoor kitchen, as well as a fireplace, seating, and dining areas. The covered section features a beautiful vaulted timber ceiling.

Given the home’s proximity to the water’s edge, the entire outdoor living space is achieved via an expansive, three-level deck. The original decking material
