“R” is for Respite


Posted By on Aug 8, 2010

Let’s face it, with the stress and uncertainty we face each day just to get up, go to work and pay the bills, we all can use a little respite.  Where better to find a place of respite than within our own homes?  With a little planning you can create the perfect place for relaxation – a place you look forward to all day long – within the sanctuary of your own home.  Perhaps for you it would be a home spa.  Having some basic supplies on hand and paying attention to the mood setting ambiance that’s right for you, can change your bathroom into a personal haven.  Read these ideas at the www.relaxation-at-home.com website to get started today.  Spas are not the answer for everyone however.  At www.gmtoday.com you can read about making your walk-in closet into a personalized dressing room that transforms getting ready for your hectic day into a peaceful and calming experience.  If books are your highway to escape and respite, then what you need is your own book nook.  At www.typeamom.net it suggests that you find a comfortable corner and stake a claim to it.  Make this the perfect place to settle in with a cup of tea and a great novel.  Some people crave the sounds and smells of nature to find true relaxation.  At www.ezinearticles.com they give hints for creating a garden paradise with a soothing fountain.  If none of these ideas seem like the perfect at home get away for you, try reading Private Places by Judith Wilson to get some insight into making your home a true place of respite.  It doesn’t always take a lot of money to find place of comfort, just some creativity and a few small changes will make your life better.

“Q” is for Quality


Posted By on Aug 8, 2010

Quality is a relative term and should be treated as such.  All manufactured housing is subject to strict building codes which provide a minimum quality standard (minimum being the key word!)  Mobile homes are built to the HUD code, while modular homes are built to the BOCA code.  Researching the building codes will give you a fair understanding of the minimum quality you can expect when you buy a manufactured home.  All factory built homes are subject to these standards, however not all factory built homes are of the same quality.  HUD and BOCA codes were created to protect the consumer from shoddy craftsmanship.  Keep in mind that all factory built homes can be built to a much higher standard than the minimum.  The quality of your new home is entirely based on what is important to you.  Asking for your new home to be built to your standards assures you that your expectations of quality will be met.  At Schiavi Home Builders we go one step further by offering you the most qualified crew available in this area.  Our set crew, construction crew and quality assurance personnel make the process of delivering and readying your new home to move into a high priority.  We take care of everything so you can be certain the quality of the workmanship is top notch.
