CAL Green Building - LED Lighting Evolves And Breaks Price Barrier - Chico Homes   One of my, “hobbies” is experimenting with emerging lighting solutions.There are a myriad of choices and lighting technologies today. How to you compare apples to apples or LED's to CFL's to incandescent bulbs? Here are a few rules of thumb to consider when switching from one type of bulb to another: Warm white is typically found in home environments (less than 3300 color temp) Cool white is typically found in office environments (more than 5000 color temp) A work room at home would require approximately 2500 lumens and a standard 60 watt incandescent bulb produces about 800 lumens. Lighting levels are a matter of personal preference. As people age lighting levels needed tend to increase. Watts are the me...

CAL Green Building - BIB Wall In- Chico Homes If you are considering a new home or upgrading the energy efficiency of your existing one you might consider insulation. While there are numerous material types used today, fiberglass maybe one of the most popular products. Manufacturers have developed improved methods for installing the product not common even 4 years ago.   One advance in wall insulation is known as Blown-In-Blanket or BIB for short.  This method of insulation produces a level of thermal resistance or "R" value that is much higher than what a preformed "batt" insulation can provide. The BIB is referred to as a "zero defect" product. The finely cut material is excellent at finding and filling small voids found around the piping and wiring found in walls. This method of insu...

"Will Wrestle Your Mother-In-Law for a Dollar" read the sign of the man at the end of the 99N offramp. I couldn't help but smile.  Very clever marketing.  But my mother-in-law lives out of town--I should've asked about travel costs.  Anyway he didn't look scrappy enough to take her.  :)     Jen Wing   Just kidding Ma-In-Law!

Chico Houses - Buyer's Agent; What Is A Buyer's Real Estate Agent? Chico Real Estate Properties listed for sale with Real Estate Agents have a contractual relationship that establishes a fiduciary responsibility on behalf of the Seller. Before a Purchase Offer Agreement is created all Real Estate Agents are contractually obligated to the Seller to fulfill that fiduciary responsibility. A clear exception to this arrangement can be created through the completion of a Buyer Representative Agreement. Otherwise Buyers looking for a new home have no representation established until a purchase offer is made. Many Buyer's maybe unaware that this agreement adds NO ADDITIONAL COST to the purchase process. Buyers essentially acquire a package of additional benefits WITHOUT ADDITIONAL EXPENSE by es...

Hey There!  Thank you for taking a few moments to read this tiny blog post.  I really think times are a changing!  Today I realized that more and more people are doing some form of barter with the younger 'working set'.  I am refering to those recently out of high school, enrolled in college and working part time... These kids want more work!  We want more help!  This is really a smart way to go...we are teaching them that work is a good thing, you can work for someone and help them out and earn some extra cash - to pay for a movie or a meal in a restaraunt or even extra gas money.  I am so proud of this new generation - those of the capable, the willing, and the fortitude to see the future as a bright spot -somewhere they are headed - with an opportunity for success!  I think they will...
