What are you having paved? A commercial parking lot? A new asphalt driveway? Your needs will change the pavers you hire quite a bit. It's worth your time to read online reviews and talk to other people who have hired companies. That's the best way to find a good company in your area. ... more

There are a few homes sitting around in the Craft Farms area that have never sold because the cost of construction was much more than the selling prices. The cost of construction has begun to come down. These new homes are still having a hard time selling because they were built back when cost were higher. I would think that you might be able to come close to building right now for the cost of something you could buy if you want to buy something that is like new. If you would settle for something that might need bringing up to your standards you could probably buy something existing just as reasonable. ... more

As I'm sure you know, that is an unusual request in this area! I think it's very do-able though. I've spoken with a lender that I work closely with, and she asked that I get more details that she can send to her construction loan department in order to get a definite answer for you. Please call or email me directly with as much relevant information as you can give me so I can point you in the right direction. You can reach me at (251) 459-4764 or I look forward to hearing from you! ... more

As a Kitchen Designer I get this question on a daily basis. Jan & Barry are right in both regards. If you are simply putting a solid surface counter(acrylic or granite) on old out-dated or worn out cabinetry then its almost throwing good money away. Everything else would detract from the beautiful new counter tops. Barry’s price estimates are a pretty good rule-of-thumb in most of the southern U.S. Another consideration if your home isn’t in the $200K category would be WilsonArt’s High Definition laminate, its not your grand-mother’s laminate. Additionally, in certain locations you may even be able to get an under-mount acrylic sinks in laminate counter tops now, along with amore/ogee edge profiles. ... more
