Cork Floors-Gorgeous Old New Green Floors!

Thinking of Green Flooring? Consider Cork. Since the cork is only stripped from the bark which grows back rather than requiring a tree to cut down it is a sustainable product. Fantastic for insualtion and sound barriers it's also a gorgeous and easy to care for floor! I've seen it priced as low as $2 sq. ft to boot. Several have a lock and click installation process making it a easy do it yourself job to tackle. Check out Globus Cork for great pictures and more info link available through my website

Modern Sheds

I Love these! I want to use one to create a huge master suite! I can't believe how stylish they are. It would look great standing alone as a guest house/cabana . I don't care what I use it for I just want it!! link on my site.

North Orem Mid Century Rambler

Check out this new listing I have in NE Orem. Great Area and wonderful potential for a real modern look. My Favorite Feature is the Family Room with Vaulted Post and Beam Ceilings and floor to ceiling windows. All the rooms are really spacious as well. The master has sliding doors leading out the private patio. If your looking for something unspoiled you can put your own stamp that has a great floorplan and tons of room to grow you'll want to see this.

Vintage, Period, and Mid-Century Homes in Utah

I'm searching online and I see there are people here in Utah County who appreciate older homes!! I see so many cool homes with a ton of potential who just really need some love and I get so inpsired but I can't restore them all myself!! Generally here in Utah County when people are looking they want new. The only time older homes are considered is when price comes in. Then of course the plan is to make it look as new as possible! If you love vintage or mid century modern homes bargains abound in Utah County and your likely to be the only buyer who appreciates it for what it is. Of course like I mentioned above it will likely need some love but many homes in my area are still owned by the original owners and wonderfully maintained! I've seen homes 50+ years in better shape than homes less than 3 years old!!

Well I just love old homes period. So if you see something great please post pics! If you'd like to find something I'd love to help you with that!
