When it comes to home improvement, budget and construction time are two of the biggest factors to consider. Adding a second bathroom is a great way to increase home value but can require costly plumbing renovations. The Sanicompact macerating toilet system offers the perfect solution that can be installed anywhere, even attics and basements! Its tankless and self-venting features mean there is no need to cut a hole in the wall for a new vent stack, drastically reducing renovation costs. It is also eco-friendly and has a dual flush option using 1-1.28 gallons per flush (traditional toilets use 1.6 gpf). Its compact size and tank-less design make it the perfect solution for small areas. – Saniflo,

Creative planning can take an outdoor space and turn it into a functional, stylish living area you’ll love! For this project, we had a few things to work towards. The homeowners specifically requested a sunken living area and pergola along with a privacy wall. They also wanted unique inlays for added style. With some creative planning, the final space is a dream come true.

To create a strong foundation for the project, we started with Helix Screw Piles topped with pressure treated wood beams and joists. This was covered with G-tape, a water proofing membrane that adds extra life to the treated wood by sealing all fasteners that penetrate into the wood, helping to keep water away from the wood.
For a low-maintenance finish, we selected an Azek PVC Decking Board in Coast Line with Island Oak Borders.

We created a unique design at each end of the deck and an inlay with a Herringbone design for one section. Even the stairs were given a designer touch with boards going in alternating directions and integrated lighting for additional safety. The pergola, built with treated posts and beams, has been wrapped with matching Azek PVC to keep a coordinated look. – Prelude Decks and Fences,
