7 Simple Home Remodeling Strategies for the Easily Overwhelmed

“Which stresses you out more? The mere thought of adding a bathroom (so many contractors, so many unknowns, and you’re too busy already!) or fighting for Monday-morning mirror time for all eternity?

If it feels like a toss-up, you’re not alone. Remodeling can be overwhelming. With so much going on in your life already, it just feels easier to deal with a home that’s not quite right than to get swamped with one more gargantuan thing, right?

Wrong! A remodel doesn’t haveto be so all-consuming. With a few stress-sparing strategies, it’s totally doable — and totally worth it. Use these tips, and you’ll never have to step on your toddler’s rubber duckies while showering again.”

Private Island Paradise Awaits at Fawn Island

Fabulous private island is the perfect mixture of seclusion and modern comfort. Ready for full time residence or the perfect weekend getaway. The island sits in the heart of Deer Harbor. The estate includes a 2 story main house that has stunning views to the south that include Reef, Coon, Wasp, and San Juan Island as well as the Olympic range. Relax on the full 360 degree deck and watch as the world sails, motors, paddles, or drifts by. On rainy days move indoors and enjoy a wood fireplace, internet and power supplied from Orcas Island. Two guest houses provide plenty of room for visitors. This perfectly sized island gives you the classical cabin feeling, surrounded by Madrona, Douglass Fir and Oak throughout. Only accessible by boat, the newly re-built Pier with 40ft dock faces nearby Marinas, a mere 5 minute boat ride away. –
