Barn Doors have moved to Cities and Suburbs

Barn doors in an apartment or a modern home – outrageously wonderful!  They are so versatile and can be used in every room in different ways.

They are one of the most sought-after features for homes of all styles. Whether you want an attention-grabbing entry, a space-saving solution, or an attractive way to divide rooms, there’s a sliding barn door appropriate for your home.

Here is a great idea for small apartments.  A very savvy apartment dweller used a set of sliding barn doors to separate the bedroom from the living space in her New York City apartment. When opened they cover two hidden closets.

In an open-concept home, large sliding barn doors can be used to create a little privacy as needed, without permanently closing off the rooms. High windows on the door design allow for light to pass between the rooms.  What you need to find is an interior rolling barn-door hardware kit – the kits are sold in most hardware stores and Home Depot and Lowes.

Inside the kitchen of an older home the owners replaced old swinging doors to the pantry with a set of sliding barn doors. They included the hardware to add even more character. If you have a narrow kitchen, with a fully loaded grid of open shelves and cabinets, they can disappear behind a sliding barn door.

In a small space where every single inch counts, sliding barn doors come in handy. A well installed sliding barn door offers great space economy for whatever room you use it in. Of course, you need to have enough adjacent wall space for the barn door to slide over when it is opened. But this is often preferable to similarly space-saving pocket doors that require much more work to install or remove.

A friend of mine installed a one in front of her stairs, to reduce the noise coming from downstairs (her stairs were enclosed on both sides).

Another advantage of sliding barn doors is their support system. Sliding barn doors use a track for movement. The entire weight of the door is therefore distributed along the length of the track. This allows for the installation of heavier-than-usual doors without affecting stability of ease of movement. For places that need more security but are limited in space, a heavy sliding barn door would work just fine.

One small disadvantage of sliding barn doors is that they may not close as quietly as traditional doors. But a good contractor should be able to install it in such a way that noise is reduced to a minimum.

There is also, of course, the aesthetics side of the sliding barn door craze. Some sliding barn doors have this rustic outdoorsy feel that creates a stunning contrast when indoors. This contrast is especially noticeable when styled in a worn, rustic design that makes it seem like it was taken right from the barn outside and installed inside.

Dr. Seuss Taught Us a Great Deal Though His Books and We Didn’t Even Know It

Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known by his pen name Dr. Seuss, was a writer and cartoonist who published over 60 books. He published his first children’s book, And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, under the name of Dr. Seuss in 1937. 

Next came a string of bestsellers, including The Cat in the Hat and Green Eggs and Ham. His rhymes and characters are beloved by generations of fans.

Green eggs and Ham

At age 18, Geisel left home to attend Dartmouth College, where he became the editor in chief of its humor magazine, Jack-O-Lantern. When Geisel and his friends were caught drinking in his dorm room one night, in violation of prohibition law, he was kicked off the magazine staff, but continued to contribute to it using the pseudonym “Seuss.”

After graduating from Dartmouth, Geisel attended the University of Oxford in England, with plans to eventually become a professor. In 1927, he dropped out of Oxford.

Following World War II, Geisel and his wife Helen purchased an old observation tower in La Jolla, California, where he would write for at least eight hours a day, taking breaks to tend his garden.

Over the following five decades, Geisel would write many books, both in a new, simplified vocabulary style and using his older, more elaborate technique.

In the course of his career, Geisel published more than 60 books

Dr. Seuss has many word of wisdom in his books – here are many of them

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.

Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.

Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!

A person’s a person, no matter how small.

I speak for the trees, for the trees have no tongues.

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.

You’re off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, So… get on your way!

From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere.

I do not like green eggs and ham. I do not like them, Sam-I-Am.

Oh the things you can find, if you don’t stay behind!

I meant what I said and I said what I meant.

In my world, everyone’s a pony and they all eat rainbows and poop butterflies!

I’m telling you this ‘cause you’re one of my friends. My alphabet starts where your alphabet ends!

It’s not about what it is, it’s about what it can become.” – a memory.

You’ll be on your way up! You’ll be seeing great sights! You’ll join the high fliers who soar to high heights.

If you never did you should. These things are fun and fun is good

When he worked, he really worked. But when he played, he really PLAYED.

You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.

To the world you may be one person; but to one person you may be the world.

Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.

You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child.

We looked! Then we saw him. Step in on the mat! We looked! And we saw him! The Cat in the Hat!

I don’t know about you, however some of Dr. Suess’ words have stayed with me through my life’s adventures and gave me the push I needed to go on.  So Happy Birthday Dr. Suess, no one can ever take your place.

Spring Cleaning Made Easier with Built-In Storage

It will be March next week and that means spring cleaning time here in Las Vegas. It’s a great way to refresh spaces and toss out that stuff that’s just been collecting with no real purpose. But what do you do with the stuff you DO want to keep? Maybe now is the right time to think about adding some extra storage space in your home!

Luckily there are tons of prefabricated kits that can help you turn your home into an organizational center. If you start building your future storage now, you’ll be totally ready for sorting and putting away when the bushes and trees start blooming again.

Built-In Storage Kits

You don’t have to be Bob Villa to install any of the many basic storage systems that are available at big box stores and home improvement centers across the valley. Some are designed with specific kinds of storage in mind, like closet systems that help you make more room out of nothing at all. Other systems are designed to be extra sturdy for more challenging spaces, like garages or utility rooms.

These out of the box systems are a great way to add built-in storage, even if you’re not particularly handy. They often feature pre-cut pieces with just a few fasteners you’ll need to insert into the wall, along with step-by-step instructions to help you succeed. I put up a few of those garage ceiling kits a few years back and I just love them!

And (if you’re feeling up to it) pick up add-on parts for those systems, or use them in unexpected places, like under stairs and in other odd spaces in your house. Every nook can become mega storage if you have the right kind of system to install there.

Building From Scratch

If you have experience with home repairs and building things, you may want to take a serious look at spaces like ceilings, wall voids, rafters, and attic knee walls for room you can reclaim. Ensure there’s no electrical wire or plumbing running in the space you have your eye on for extra storage, though. Skipping this step can lead to some serious repercussions, including, but not limited to, electrocution and pipe ruptures.

However, with a careful hand, you can take those formerly useless stretches of wall or ceiling and add things like built-in bookcases, cabinets, and drawers. Don’t forget that your built-in can only be as deep as the void, minus the thickness of the back materials, so choose your spaces accordingly. Attic knee walls are especially fun options, since there are usually deep voids behind them that you can transform into your storage fantasies.

Some Special Options for Kitchens

Kitchens are notorious for lacking storage or working space, but they also offer a lot of small spaces that most people tend to overlook. For example, if you have a lot of mugs or teacups, the simple act of installing mug hooks under your upper cabinets can permanently free up shelf space – this works for wine glasses as well and can add a bit of style. The inside of your cabinets can host shallow storage racks, which are great for holding cleaning supplies, spices, and other small items. I’ve noticed that plenty of pantries are just poorly designed… they have a lot of room, but no organization. You can use kits, baskets, or even plastic bins to organize yours.

Need help with your storage projects?

Sometimes, you can be long on ideas for new storage, but short on the skill or time to execute them. That is when you call me Jeff Howard, your Realtor for Life.  I have lists of handy people that can help you get anything designed and/or built so you’re ready for spring.

IN MEMORIAM

As a founding member of the Supremes, Mary Wilson personified Motown’s style and grace, both on and off the stage. As the most successful female group in history, the Supremes delivered the “Sound of Young America” to the world and brought together audiences of all backgrounds with indelible classics including “Stop! In The Name of Love” and “You Can’t Hurry Love.” Mary Wilson’s rich and sweet voice was an iconic sound for generations of fans. The world lost Mary Wilson just a few days ago. She will live on in this music — forever Supreme.

Rock n’ Roll has been a part of the fabric of our lives. You hear an old rock song, and it takes you back to another time. You hear a new one and your feet just can’t stop moving your feet.  Rock and Roll truly is here to stay.

Win a trip to go to Space on SpaceX (and give St. Jude hospital a cosmic funding boost)

Space Exploration Technologies Corp. is an American aerospace manufacturer and space transportation services company headquartered in Hawthorne, California and was founded in 2002 by Elon Musk.

SpaceX’s first all-civilian space flight is set for late this year, and will provide an out-of-this-world fundraising opportunity for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.  The hospital says it expects to generate $200 million for cancer research and other causes from this amazing flight.

It’s off to a fast start: there already have been $1 million in donations in the first day since the flight’s announcement.

Jared Isaacman, the billionaire businessman who will finance and pilot the multi-day mission for himself and three others, will also be driving the publicity push, with the help of a Super Bowl commercial next weekend. Of the $200 million that St. Jude hopes to raise this year, $100 million is to come from Isaacman, with the rest from donations generated by raffling off one seat on the flight.

Richard C. Shadyac Jr., CEO of ALSAC (American Lebanese Syrian Associated Charities) founded by Danny Thomas, the fundraising organization for St. Jude, said the money raised will go toward the Memphis hospital’s $1 billion annual operating cost, as well as its global partnership with the World Health Organization. The overarching idea is to raise childhood cancer survival rates around the world from 20% to 60% by 2030.

St. Jude’s is an incredible place for children with childhood cancer and their families.  They are all taken without having to worry about the cost or the families cost of housing while their child is being treated. You do not have to donate to enter, but I hope you will. Just go to http://bit.ly/3pXf1Dq before March 1

Live Theatre (not streamed) – Love Letters by A. R. Gurney

The Las Vegas Little Theatre is reopening making theatre goers very happy. The first performance of this season is Love Letters by A.R. Gurney. Love Letters was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.  The first performance was in 1988 at the New York Public Library.

The play centers on two characters, Melissa Gardner and Andrew Makepeace Ladd II who exchange letters, but not marriage vows, in a warm and complicated friendship lasting 50 years. Because they choose others as mates, and live to regret it.

Love Letters has a wistful tone: beneath the sparkle there is sadness and remorse. “This is a play about missed opportunity,” said John Tillinger, who staged it. “They keep missing each other but they’re bound to each other. He doesn’t really realize how much she means to him until she dies.” “She was at the heart of my life,” he laments to her mother.

This play is a unique and imaginative theatre piece which, in the words of the author, “needs no theatre, no lengthy rehearsal, no special set, no memorization of lines, and no commitment from its two actors beyond the night of performance.” The piece is comprised of letters exchanged over a lifetime between two people who grew up together, went their separate ways, but continued to share confidences. As the actors read the letters aloud, what is created is an evocative, touching, frequently funny but always telling pair of character studies in which what is implied is as revealing and meaningful as what is actually written down.

​This show will feature a different pair of actors performing each weekend of the run! 

Limited seating live performances :

   Fridays, Jan 15, 22, 29 @ 8pm 

  Saturdays, Jan 16, 23, 30 @ 8pm and
  Sundays, Jan 17, 24, 31 @ 2pm

Starring (First Weekend) – April Sauline & Michael Kaczurak

Starring (Second Weekend) – Monica Johns & Glenn Heath

Starting (Third Weekend) – Teresa Fullerton & Blake Boles

Directed by Walter Niejadlik 

Tickets are $30. 

The Las Vegas Little Theatre is following strict safety guidelines including reduced capacity, 6-foot distance with seating and mandatory masks. The theatre is located at 3920 Schiff Drive.   For more information, please click here for LVLT’s reopening plan.

Using Paint to Change the Game

The way your home is decorated says a lot about you and your family.  Choosing the right mix of colors can set the mood and having the right color on the wall can make it spectacular. Putting a contrasting color in the right spot can also dramatically change the features of a room.

Paint is a wonderful way to change the look of your home and the best part of it is easy to change if you do not like it. Plus it is not expensive to change a color. Many paint manufacturers make what I would call “a sampler size container” for you to purchase so you can get 3 different shades of a color and see which works best.  Or you can get 3 or 4 different colors if you don’t have a color in mind.  It’s important to see the color in the sunlight and in the lighting of your room.

The following are just a few ideas to enhance the details of the house you already have:

  1. Pay close attention your front door. It is one of the best spots for setting the mood for your whole home. It says something that your windows never could, so paint it like it’s the most important part of your home. Matching the house trim is very passe’. Today’s front doors feature bold or fun colors that complement the rest of your outdoor color scheme. Some houses can also see a bump in interest when homeowners try the same trick on their garage doors.
  2. Choose bold trim colors. Your trim color doesn’t always have to be white, though it shouldn’t be the same color as the wall. Instead, you can make a huge statement by highlighting some of the more decorative elements of your home with paint colors that have something to say for themselves. Pair light gray walls with black trim, or choose several different colors to accent ornate trim work in older homes.  When picking your paint colors keep your furniture and their colors in mind – you might want to choose a trim color that ties in with your furniture.
  3. Rethink built-in cabinets and shelving. Plenty of homes have built-in shelving or cabinets, but most homeowners opt to paint these the same color as the trim in their homes, effectively hiding a potentially eye-popping element. Instead of blending your built-ins into the background, choose colors to highlight them.  Selecting a bold or bright color for the back wall of an open shelving unit can really make a statement. This can also work for the risers on wooden staircases, that really looks great and makes the stairs pop in a designer kind of way.
  4. Why not white? A lot of people shy away from white walls because they feel like the color lends an institutional feel to a room, but white doesn’t have to be hospital-grade. There are a range of “barely there” colors within the white spectrum, and you can enhance them with color pops in the room itself. It’s your house; if you want a white, don’t let anyone tell you you’re wrong. Choosing a trim color that complements your white is also vital to success with all-white walls.
  5. Color on the ceiling? Sure! There’s been a long tradition of ceilings being painted a flat white, but that wasn’t always the case. In the past, ceilings have been havens of color in rooms of various sizes and shapes. Depending on the effect you’re looking to create, you can use lighter or darker colors to visually raise or lower the ceiling, or accent decorative ceilings with color for added dimension.  If you can paint a picture you can paint some clouds on the ceiling.
  6. Try textured paint. Wall texture comes and goes as a trend, but it’s a great way to deal with older homes that may have irregular or downright rough walls. Today’s texture paint goes well beyond Venetian plasters, giving you a huge range of options in texture and more ways to get an end result you’ll absolutely adore. Use a heavy texture as an accent, or go a little lighter for interest throughout your living space.

$8,500 stolen from my friend – because he did not have 2FA (Two-Factor Authentication)

2 Factor Authentication

A good amount of our lives happens on mobile devices and computers, so it’s no surprise that our digital accounts have become targets for criminals. These evil attacks against governments, companies, and you are more and more common than ever, with no sign that the hacks, data breaches, and other forms of cybercrime are slowing down! There are times that it is simple human error that has left them exposed. Like I said, this just happened to a good friend of mine.

A recent study revealed that in 2016 over $16 billion was taken from 15.4 million U.S. consumers. Even more incredible, identify thieves stole over $107 billion in the past six years alone. Scary isn’t it?

Luckily, it’s easy to add an extra level of protection to your most important accounts in the form of two-factor authentication, also commonly referred to as 2FA, which is used to make sure that people trying to gain access to an online account are who they say they are. First, a user will enter their username and a password. Then, instead of immediately gaining access, they will be required to provide another piece of information. This second factor could come from one of the following categories:

Something you know:This could be a personal identification number (PIN), a password, answers to “secret questions” or a specific keystroke pattern.

Something you have:Typically, a user would have something in their possession, like a credit card, a smartphone, or a small hardware token.

Something you are:This category is a little more advanced, and might include biometric pattern of a fingerprint, an iris scan, or a voice print.

Something only you (ideally) have access to: They can send a code via email, voice call or text message that you have to enter before it expires.

With 2FA, a potential compromise of just one of these factors won’t unlock the account. So, even if your password is stolen or your phone is lost, the chances of a someone else having your second-factor information is highly unlikely.

According to a recent report, stolen, reused, and weak passwords remain a leading cause of security breaches. Unfortunately, passwords are still the main (or only) way many companies protect their users. The good news is that cybercrime is in the news so much that 2FA awareness is quickly growing and users are demanding that the companies they do business with have improved security. Most likely, your bank and other truly sensitive web sites you visit have this ability, and if they don’t, you may want to move your accounts to one that does.

BE CAREFUL many criminals will trick you into giving them the 2FA information. Example: You receive a text message from someone claiming to be your bank and they tell you that for your security, you must text them the code you just received, but the code they want you to send them is the 2FA that allows them to take money from you. Never send your 2FA to anyone! If your bank contacts you, end that conversation, and call them at a trusted phone number.

If my friend had 2FA, when the criminals tried to make the transfer, it would have required another level of protection that they would not likely have had access to, and the theft would not have happened.

One last note: many people can’t tolerate the “hassle” of continually identifying themselves, so they opt out of 2FA, when they can… so I ask you, is it worth the extra time it takes to keep your accounts secure?

Hot Flooring Trends for Homeowners

Installing new flooring in your home can make one of the biggest impacts on your home’s appearance. It reflects your style and personality, as well as your lifestyle. The right floor can make it easier to keep your home cleaner, and set the mood for a cozy living space. There are certain trends that have been a lot more popular than others. Here’s a brief list of options that should make your flooring search a little easier.

Hard Flooring Options

Hard floors are any kind of flooring with a solid, and generally non-porous, surface.  Hard flooring offers many benefits. The materials are more resilient to regular use, so wear life is longer. And cleaning is easier because there’s no fibers to capture things like pet hair, loose skin cells, dirt, and microbes. Some of the most popular hard flooring options include:

Vinyl Plank

Vinyl Plank is designed much like laminate flooring, with a tongue and groove locking system that creates a watertight seal when properly installed. The difference between vinyl plank and laminate flooring, however, is that vinyl plank is made from solid vinyl, rather than being several layers of different materials sandwiched together. It’s a great choice for wet areas like kitchens and bathrooms, and for households with pets and children. As a bonus, vinyl plank is available in a huge range of patterns, from synthetic marble to high variation wood-like floor patterns.

Wood-look Porcelain

Wood-Look Porcelain Tile. If you want something that will last longer than vinyl plank, but still look like wood, wood-look porcelain tiles are a great option. They look like wood planks, but are made from extremely durable porcelain. It’s an option that’s very permanent and will last for many, many years to come. They can also be purchased in the high variation wood patterns, though the effect is less obvious than with vinyl plank since there is grout between the tiles.

Terrazzo

Terrazzo. This might be the coolest flooring you’ve never heard of. Although its popular, many people don’t know the term for it. Terrazzo is that tile flooring that’s made from concrete with lots of inclusions like glass, shells, or other interesting bits mixed in. It looks great in mid-century modern homes, or those decorated in the style. And since concrete is extremely durable, it will last and last.

Reclaimed Wood is sometimes referred to as “architectural salvage.” When a building is being torn down, firms can sometimes acquire the materials, especially if the building is historic. It can be labor intensive to install reclaimed wood floors, but you’ll end up with a totally unique look and keep building materials out of the landfill, so it’s kind of a double win.

Area Rug

What About Carpet?  Sometimes they’re in, sometimes they’re out.  Usually there are some people who are still really into carpeting even when their popularity is waning. Right now the trend in carpets is to opt for carpeting in limited spots, like using carpet runners for stairs.

Carpet tiles are seeing some popularity, especially since they come in a ton of fun colors and tend to have a very low nap, making them easy to keep clean. If you want more carpet, look for large area rugs or keep your carpet in low-use rooms like bedrooms. “Maximalism” is making a big comeback, encouraging big patterns and colors with big personalities. Clashing is the new matching.

Once you know what kind of flooring you’d prefer, you may need to find someone to install it. Some flooring shops have an in-house flooring installer, but you can’t always rely on these experts to be as expert as you’d like. seem.  Not every flooring installer installs every kind of flooring, so be sure to ask them about their areas of expertise before you make your final decision.

There are many companies that install flooring. Feel free to call me – Jeff “Vegas” Howard, your Realtor for life as I have a list of professional and reputable firms for you to consider.

Redpoint and Redpoint Square– the last frontier?

Summerlin, located on the west side of the Las Vegas Valley is developing the last remaining land in the master-plan.  The two villages are called Redpoint Village and the second is Redpoint Square.

The two villages offer an interesting and diverse mix of residential homes, townhomes, mixed-use office and retail developments and of course lots of parks, open space and trails – something Summerlin is known for.  Did you know that Summerlin ranked number 3 as the top selling master-plan in the country?

Redpoint Village will be located along the northern border of Far Hills Drive, and is a key gateway into Summerlin West, with eight new single-family neighborhoods from top Summerlin homebuilders, including Woodside, Toll Brothers, Taylor Morrison (formerly William Lyons Homes), Lennar, Pardee and Pulte.

Redpoint Square

Travel a bit north of Redpoint is Redpoint Square, featuring a mixture of single family attached and detached homes from builders including Richmond American Homes, KB Homes, Toll Brothers, Taylor Morrison, Lennar and Woodside.

Redpoint Square, is beginning to take shape with its first neighborhood. now selling, Moro Rock by Richmond American Homes.  There are two duet town home models priced from the high $200,000s.  Redpoint Square will be suited for first-time buyers, millennials, families, executives, and retirees.  Luxury home living opportunities will be available too. 

inside model home

According to Danielle Bisterfeldt, vice president of marketing for Summerlin, Summerlin West is the next chapter in the community’s 30-year history as one of the country’s premier and top-selling master plans.

Bisterfeldt stated “Situated on elevated topography overlooking the valley, the Summerlin West area boasts an elevation that is more than 4,550 feet above sea level at its highest point, creating an abundance of vantage points and vistas. Summerlin’s higher elevations, which deliver temperatures up to 5 degrees cooler than the Strip, support a greater variety of naturally occurring vegetation, a characteristic indicative of the community given its location along the valley’s elevated western rim.”

Construction at Redpoint Square

“Perhaps the greatest distinction of Summerlin West, with Redpoint and Redpoint Square, will be its greater diversity of home products that will make the area truly multigenerational,” she said. “Summerlin West will boast a greater volume of smaller and attached home products that encourage a more experiential lifestyle and are well-suited for first-time homebuyers, millennials and retirees who prefer smaller-footprint living. At the same time, Summerlin West will feature many single-family neighborhoods in a variety of sizes and price points, along with estates and luxury living opportunities. The goal is to create a truly diverse region of the community that will resonate with a wide variety of homebuyers seeking a 21st-century lifestyle.”
