The Little Theatre is bringing more great shows this year (including one I’m in)

Living in Las Vegas we are very fortunate to have a multitude of entertainment all over town, without going to the strip.  There are several local theatre productions and many take place in the Little Theatre.  To get more information either call the box office702-362-7996  or email  info@lvlt.org.  The theatre is located in China Town at 3920 Schiff Drive.

The following is a sampling of what is coming up in the next few months.

The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde

This farce is such a classic.  I have seen it several times and it never gets old.  It’s the story of two bachelors, John ‘Jack’ Worthing and Algernon ‘Algy’ Moncrieff, who create alter egos named Ernest to escape their tiresome lives. They attempt to win the hearts of two women who, conveniently, claim to only love men called Ernest.

The Speeding Theatre-Over 55 Presents:  Jack Benny’s Not 39 Anymore

by Marv Siegel

A running gag on the Jack Benny Show was about celebrating his perpetual 39th Birthday. Like Jack Benny, Norman insists that he’s as young as he feels. Retirement remorse leads him to hatch one cockamamy business scheme after another. His loving wife, Edna, is threatened when she discovers that their new neighbor, Rosemary, had a romance with Norman years ago. She also fears Rosemary’s son becoming a match for her daughter, and tries everything in her power to keep both pairs apart. Hilarity ensues!!!​

This show is a must see!  Why you may ask?  I’M IN IT!!!.  That is correct Jeff Vegas, your Realtor for Life loves the theatre and loves to perform, (when I am not taking care of all your Real Estate needs).  I am grateful to be doing live theatre again.  If you are comfortable enough, come out and see this fun show.

Flexible Spaces for Kids

Let’s face it when you are creating a unique space for your children it is usually a bigger job than you expect. This is especially true if you want to come up with something that will stand the test of time. Of course, the needs and wants of your children will change as they get bigger and older. If you don’t account for these changes, then sooner or later that “perfect” room you designed for your little one will be outdated and possibly even unwanted.

Is there anything that you can do other than completely redesign your kids’ rooms every few years?

Happily, the answer is yes. By taking into account the way that children’s needs change over time, you can come up with more flexible designs that can be easily adapted as your child’s interests shift. There will still be periodic changes that have to be made, of course, however, this type of plan will keep you from having to start from the ground up each time. The following suggestions are a few things to keep in mind to help you create some of these more flexible spaces for your kids.

Start Simple

When coming up with the initial design for your child’s bedroom or playroom, it’s a good idea to take something of a minimalist approach to your design. Try to figure out what the absolute essentials are, then see if there is an ageless way to approach them. Add color to the room, however, lean a bit more toward light or neutral shades instead of going with more extreme colors that your child may grow to dislike. An example is a girl’s room painted a bright pink.  At some point, she may say it’s too girly pink.

Invest in a few key furniture items that can be repurposed over time instead of buying specialty pieces that will only be used for a short while. Use colored rugs and other removable accents instead of going for changing the carpeting. Your goal is to create a simple space that has a lot of potential so that as your child’s interests change, you’ll have a base to move back toward and adapt the room from.

Customize the Little Things

Once you have a base design for your child’s room, it’s time to start customizing it to make it appear much more in line with their interests. This is where you can get creative and really try to match the room to your child. Lamps, posters, decorative items, and more can go a long way toward customizing the space while still being relatively easy to remove and replace if your child loses interest over time.

This is also a good time to consider painting furniture items such as desks and dressers. While this may not always be an option, most of the time it’s not that big of a deal to add a coat of paint to simple furniture items to help them better match the look of a room. By painting these accent pieces to match the overall layout of the room, you can make a notable change to the space that can be redone or updated in the future as needed.

Designing with Kids

As your children grow, sit down with them to get their input so that you can make additional changes that actually align with their interests. This doesn’t mean that you have to rush out and buy everything that your child wants, of course; use these chats to gauge how happy they are with their room, what sort of changes they might be interested in, and if there are any pieces of furniture or decorations that they seem to be outgrowing. The nature of their room is going to change over time, so make sure that they are a part of the conversation on how it needs to change.

It may also be a good idea to speak to an interior designer or decorator who has experience with creating functional and stylish children’s rooms.  Contact me- Jeff Vegas, your Realtor for Life,  I can suggest a designer that can help you make both you and your child happy.

You have heard the name, however What is a Vessel Sink?

The bathroom is the most commonly overlooked area in the home when it comes to making fashionable changes. We all know that painting, adding accent decorations, and changing the various fixtures in the room will revamp its look. The one option that is overlooked and by the way probably the most stylish and noticeable is replacing your old boring sink with a vessel sink.

Vessel sinks aren’t right for every bathroom or every person’s more traditional sense of style. When they do work, they can really make a splash and give a focal point to the bathroom.  If you’re not sure exactly what a vessel sink is or how one would fit into your bathroom’s decoration, read on. I will cover the basics of these sinks, how they differ from more traditional sinks, and how to tell if one is right for your home.

The Ins and Outs of Vessel Sinks

The layout of the sinks in most bathrooms are pretty.  You have a basin is inserted into a countertop (and in many cases is an actual part of the countertop material), giving you a recessed area to wash your hands and do everything else that you need a sink for. They’re functional and more aesthetically pleasing than the metal sinks that are often seen in kitchens and utility areas. In other words the bathroom sink doesn’t do much to stand out.

Vessel sinks serve all the same purposes as a traditional basin sink, however have much more stylish flair to them. Instead of being a recessed sink built into the countertop, vessel sinks are a standing vessel or sculpted bowl that typically sits on top of the counter or only partially recessed into it. This creates a unique look for the sink that calls to mind a sense of nostalgia for more Victorian-era hardware. The faucet typically stands separate from the vessel and is either mounted to the counter or to the wall, adding to the overall look and highlighting the difference between vessel sinks and traditional basins.

Vessel Sink Installation

Compared to some other plumbing jobs, vessel sink installation can be a bit easier, however may also be easy to mess up if you aren’t careful. Provided that you aren’t installing a semi-recessed vessel sink, the main concerns for installing the sink are the installation of the faucet hardware and making sure that the drain hole in the countertop is the right size to line up with the vessel drain. Theoretically, one of these sinks can be installed by a single person who has a good idea of what they are doing.  In my opinion it would be worth your while to have a licensed plumber, that has installed vessel sinks to install yours. Need help finding a licensed plumber with vessel sink experience? – no worries just contact me, Jeff Vegas, Your Realtor for Life.

With that said, there are still a few things that need to be kept in mind during installation. The counter will need to be sufficiently large to accommodate the vessel and faucet, and made of a material that’s sufficiently protected against water, as vessel sinks are more prone to splashing than more traditional sinks. You will also need enough vertical height to accommodate the sink; even a modest vessel sink can add 6 inches or more to the height of the sink area, so you’ll need the necessary clearance for both that and the faucet hardware. Mounting and sealing the sink are also more important than with traditional sinks, as the last thing you want is for your vessel to leak around its drain and potentially weaken the countertop below it.

If you purchased a home with lower counter heights, this can be a great way to raise the sink to a more suitable height.

Are Vessel Sinks Right for You?

Vessel sinks can be very striking, giving a unique look to your bathroom that really catches the eye. They come in a range of different shapes and materials, letting you customize your sink to meet your personal design preferences. They also don’t necessarily require as large of a counter or support structure as more traditional sinks, so they can work well in some smaller bathrooms provided they’re properly mounted. Vertical space and splash considerations may create issues, however.

The Original Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit in Las Vegas

The Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit has been thrilling people for months at the once-in-a-lifetime exhibit. I went to see the exhibit and was immediately impressed on how I was drawn into the paintings.

The work of Vincent Van Gogh is all around you – one painting at a time.  The painting is even underneath you, which gives you the feeling of being part of the actual painting that you are looking at.  The paintings slowly morph from one to another and you can see how the leaves and flowers come to be, as well as the buildings and the people featured. 

All of this has great background music which changes as the periods of Van Gogh’s work evolves.  You see some of his most famous pieces like A Starry Night, Irises, Self Portrait, Wheatfields with Crows and Bedroom in Arles among many more.

To help reimagine this massive venue, Immersive Van Gogh has joined forces with Emmy Award-winning and Tony Award-nominated designer David Korins , known for his set design of countless Broadway hits including Hamilton and Dear Evan Hansen.

As Creative Director, Korins uses his infinite creativity to incorporate ingenious interior design, high-tech activations, and new experiential elements to the venue for a unique experience only available to Las Vegas, Nevada.

The location of the immersive exhibit is at the Shops at Crystals adjacent to ARIA Resort & Casino, at 3720 S Las Vegas Blvd.

Patio Heaters Are Great to Warm Up the Winter

I think we can all agree that having a patio gives you a great place to hang out and enjoy the outdoors while you’re at home. Then the winter months come ( luckily in Las Vegas not for long), dropping temperatures that often makes your patio all but uninhabitable. Cooler weather doesn’t have to be the end of your time enjoying your patio,  there are many options available that can extend your time, including patio heaters.

Patio heaters are different from other outdoor heating options like fire pits. Since they are designed to spread heat out over a larger area, a patio heater could be the ideal solution to keep your patio area usable for the winter months in Southern Nevada. If you think that one of these heaters might be the perfect addition to your outdoor space, here are a few things to consider to help make sure that you pick the perfect one.

How Patio Heaters Work

Patio heaters are designed to radiate heat outward, spreading heat over a larger area than you’d cover with a fire pit or other heat source that doesn’t have a cap or other barrier preventing heat from escaping upward. The amount of heat coverage provided by these heaters are different depending on the type of heater, its size, and where it’s located on your patio. Some patio heaters include chimneys or other exhaust pipes to vent potentially harmful gases generated as their fuel burns, preventing those gases from being diverted outward by the same caps that redirect the heat.

The type of heater really depends on your needs.  You can find small patio heaters that can sit on top of a table or other surface, as well as larger free-standing units that sit on the patio floor itself. Most heaters include controls similar to what you see on indoor heaters, allowing you to change the amount of heat produced. This lets you adjust your heater for use when you just need to knock off a little chill or when you need to produce more heat on colder nights.

Patio Heater Types

There are a variety of types of patio heaters; the most common varieties are electric, propane, natural gas, and wood-burning heaters. Here is a little information on each type:

Electric heaters are similar to some of the space heaters you might have used indoors, offering benefits such as portability and heat production without creating fuel exhaust. Unfortunately, these heaters are not as energy efficient as other types, and often do not produce as much heat.

Propane heaters connect to the same kind of tank like you would use with a propane grill. They produce more heat than many electric heaters and are still relatively portable, though they should not be used in covered or enclosed areas.

Natural gas heaters are the most energy-efficient and convenient patio heaters, connecting to your home’s existing natural gas line so that you don’t have to swap out tanks or perform other maintenance. These heaters are not portable at all, and need to be professionally installed to ensure that there are no gas leaks.

Wood-burning heaters are the cheapest patio heaters to operate, but they also require more cleaning and maintenance. They also require more work to light and put out and can be fire hazards if left unattended.

Choosing a Patio Heater

Picking the right heater for your patio area depends a lot on how your patio is laid out and whether portability and maintenance are major concerns for you. Electric and propane heaters are best for those who want to be able to move their heater around easily, and wood-burning heaters are a good option for those who want a heater that operates cheaply and don’t mind emptying out ash and coals to keep the heater clean.

Natural gas heaters are the best options for homes where there’s already a gas line installed, and you don’t mind having a permanent heating option in place. They do require professional installation.  If you need to find a professional installer, please contact me, Your Realtor for Life, and I will recommend a reputable firm.

How To Know if You Need a Handyperson or a Specialist

Everything in your home that has been getting on your nerves from that squeaky door to the leaky faucet, and you’ have decided to get all these little annoyances fixed all at once. Hiring a handyperson service is a great way to cross everything off this to-do list in a hurry.

Even if you have a reliable handyperson on speed-dial, you might not be sure if you should hire them or a licensed trade specialist for the work. How can you tell the difference?  You also should you find out if your handy person is licensed or unlicensed.  An unlicensed handyman can only do up to $500 worth of repairs total including parts and labor.

First you should ask your handyperson if they’re capable of handling all the items on your list.  An honest pro should be able to give a clear answer. You can also research local regulations and find out what needs a license. Several cities have their licensing requirements online, or staff who will be happy to answer specific questions.

Licensing requirements vary significantly by state, but generally speaking, small jobs like fixing leaky faucets or replacing a light switch don’t require a license. However, anything that gets into the guts of the pipes or wiring most likely needs a license.

Large jobs that involve multiple workers and/or significant investment, such as a remodel or addition, usually require a licensed general contractor to oversee.

The following are types of jobs you can usually hire a handyperson to take care of:

— Replacing small electrical components, such as thermostats, light switches and outlets

— Repairing drywall

— Fixing leaks

— Hanging shelving

— Hanging doors

— Repairing woodwork

— Replacing window glass

— Wiring home theater components

And here is a list of examples some jobs that commonly require a licensed specialist:

— Adding a stairway

— Installing a new roof

— Installing a fireplace or wood stove

— Building a raised deck

— Installing or replacing certain plumbing fixtures such as water heaters

— Major remodeling

— Putting in new windows

— Building a retaining wall to block soil or erosion

— Any work requiring the repair or modification of the existing electrical, plumbing or gas systems

These are a few additional tips:

Some handy services do carry specialty licensing or have particular trades on staff, so don’t hesitate to ask if they have a plumber or electrician available for licensed work!

Whether you hire a handy service or specialty contractor, make sure they carry liability insurance and acquire whatever permits are required for the job.

Most handy service companies charge by the hour, and often their jobs take much less time than that. To get the most out of your handyperson’s time, prepare a list in advance of all the small jobs you’d like them to cover in one visit. The person you hire to fix some drywall and mount a TV might also be able to repair a leak or hang a light fixture while they’re already at your house. They’ll get more done for you and will appreciate your respect for their time.

Make sure you know ahead of time who’ll be responsible for supplying materials. If you have specific materials you’d like to be used for your project, you’ll save time by purchasing them in advance and not have to be charged for the handyperson’s time to pick them up.

As your Realtor for life, you can always call me if you need help with getting a handyperson or finding a licensed contractor for bigger jobs.

An interesting twist on the classic Dicken’s tale told from the perspective of Scrooge’s business partner Jacob Marley.   This fun and innovative production is sure to put you in the holiday spirit. 

“Scrooge? I have to redeem old Scrooge? The one man I knew who was worse than I was? Impossible!”

So begins the real story behind Dickens’ A Christmas Carol—the story of Jacob Marley’s heroic behind-the-scenes efforts to save old Scrooge’s soul—and in the process, save his own.

This thrilling performance is sure to become a holiday classic for generations to come!

Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol played for two seasons at Chicago’s Goodman Theatre. The show was nominated for four Joseph Jefferson Awards, and received an After Dark Award and the Goodman School of Drama’s Cunningham Prize for Playwriting. The play has since been performed to rave reviews and standing ovations in theatres across the country, including: Cincinnati Shakespeare, American Stage Festival, Delaware Rep, Bristol Riverside Theatre, Stages Repertory in Houston, North Coast Rep, Third Avenue Playhouse, Sage Theatre Group, and the 1894 Opera House. For seven seasons, it has been broadcast nationally on NPR.

Want to spruce up the look of your bathroom? Try a New Faucet

I spoke with a few friends and my immediate family members and one of the things that everyone agreed upon – bathrooms are one of the most important rooms in the house.  Unfortunately they tend to get a bit less attention than other rooms when it comes to how they look.

If you find yourself worrying that you have a less-than-beautiful bathroom, you’re in luck; the bathroom is one of the rooms in your home where a simple change can make a big difference in the overall look. In fact, something as simple as changing your faucet can have a major impact on how you and your guests view your bathroom.  Naturally , it’s important that you choose the right faucet. Remember your aim is to make a positive change to the look of your bathroom. If you’re not sure what sort of faucet to purchase that will make a positive impact on your bathroom, here are a couple of things to keep in mind while you’re shopping.

Faucet Style Considerations

Before going faucet shopping, take a few photos of the bathroom.  Pictures of towel racks, wall colors, and other features of your bathroom to help with your comparison of what style faucet will work with the already established look in this room.

The major thing to consider when choosing a new faucet for your bathroom is the style of the faucet. You might think that one faucet is pretty much the same as any other, however there are a wide range of styles to choose from.

When shopping for a new faucet, think about the color of the faucet, the finish, and even the shape that would work best in your bathroom. Many bathroom faucets are silver or chrome in color, but there are a wide range of metallic shades available and quite a few that offer splashes of other colors as well. Some faucets are taller than others, and some are very blocky and square while others are rounded and smooth..

Faucet Functionality

Functionality is often overlooked when shopping for a new faucet.  Many people just buy a faucet that functions the same as their previous one. There are several different functional options available in bathroom faucets, and they can impact the overall look of your bathroom as well. Some faucets have a single handle while others have separate handles for hot and cold water. Some have water-saving features, some are designed to mount through a single hole, and some mount to the wall or are otherwise specialized for standing vessel sinks. Each of these different types brings with it specific quirks of installation.

Some faucets may take functionality changes even further than this. You may consider touch-sensitive faucets that you can turn on and off with a tap of your hand, or faucets that have attached soap dispensers built directly into the sink counter. Other functional features may be available as well, and they will affect not only how you use the faucet but also how it looks as well.

Installing a New Faucet

Once you’ve picked out a faucet, installing it can be a decent DIY project for the weekend. In most cases, faucet installation is fairly straightforward; you remove the old faucet, put the new faucet in its place, then tighten the mounting hardware and reattach the water lines.

If you’re making significant changes to the style of faucet in your bathroom or adding new features like a built-in soap dispenser or handles that are separate from the main faucet body, there might be a bit more work involved.  You may need someone to drill a new hole in the counter or make other changes in the way that your faucet mounts to the sink. You also just may want to make sure that everything’s installed properly to avoid leaks. Don’t be afraid to call in a the right tradesman. Reach out to me, Jeff Howard, your Realtor for life.  I have a list of great people you can contact that will make sure the job is done right.
