On the Level: Home Tour, Outdoor Kitchens & More
I don’t know about you, but I’m loving this gorgeous spring we are having here in Raleigh. The trees are filling out, the perennials are poking through the dirt, and the birds are everywhere. This is such a gorgeous time of year—especially now that we seem to be past the worst of pollen season!
They say April showers bring May flowers, but despite drizzly weather for both days of the Remodeler’s Home Tour, we had a fantastic turnout at the home of Chuck and Sharon Robinson, whose home was featured in this year’s tour. Thanks to all of you who came out to say hello. We made some new friends and scheduled some new appointments already, so the event was a big success.
At our home, we’re ramping up for outdoor grilling season. Cabin fever gets Betsy and I out of the house and into the backyard at this time of year--from a pre-dinner drink on the patio to cooking outside to dining al fresco. If you’re interested in taking your basic outdoor cooking station to a whole other level by installing a custom, stainless steel outdoor kitchen, we should talk. Set up a time to meet with me, see and touch a demo outdoor kitchen, and let me answer all your outdoor kitchen questions.

Does Safe Gun Storage Have to Be an Eyesore? Not Anymore...
Eddie Casanave, combining soft-close drawer system technology and his team’s ability to create gorgeous cabinetry and furniture, is excited to share an exciting new product line.
Custom built furniture that stores guns (as well as other valuables) safely and attractively. This furniture is secure enough to satisfy the most safety-conscious gun owners but is stylish enough to serve as a stand-alone piece in a bedroom, living room or hallway.
“Even though I saw the need for a lockable piece of furniture to store guns at home,” says Eddie, “It wasn’t until one of our slide-out drawer customers asked us to come up with a cabinet that featured rollouts for guns that we started to design one. We built a prototype last year and went into production earlier this year. It’s definitely a new and exciting direction for our company.” Read More
