During August’s successful moving sale, all of Barnwood Reclaimers’ incredible pre-made furniture was sold and is being enjoyed in many homes throughout the community. Owners Ryan and Patti Trcka found that what really meets their clients’ needs are private custom design appointments.

D.C. Water officials tried to explain the mess during a community videoconference call Wednesday evening. The utility also offered financial help for homeowners struggling to clean up, referring to the downpour as a “100-year storm event.”
Climate change is causing more short, high-intensity storms, the utility said. D.C.’s century-old water system is aging and stressed by development. Plans for green infrastructure and an overflow tunnel would help prevent flooding but are not yet online. And the existing, 124-million-gallon Anacostia River Tunnel — running seven miles from RFK Stadium to the Blue Plains wastewater treatment plant — filled in about 35 minutes.

It’s only been just over a week since Guerrilla Games’ previous update to Horizon Zero Dawn on PC, but those plucky Dutch go-getters are right back at it again with yet another magic bag of tweaks, fixes, and updates. Announced earlier today in a Reddit post, the update – which is available right now – aims to address ‘additional crashes’, add controller rumble toggle, and offer the option to display black side bars in cinematics when playing in ultrawide.
The previous patch targeted some significant crash issues, like the game occasionally crashing when players tried to create a new save when their save slots were full up. This latest patch seems to focus on other specific but notably common issues, such as Aloy’s hair not displaying correctly with the game running above 30fps.
Other notable fixes include fixes to flickering textures in snowy environments, resolution fixes when changing from windowed

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
