Rehab your home with Golden CO Home FHA 203K Renovation Loan. Many are not aware of a special government loan program that is actually a part of FHA (Federal Housing Administration- a department within HUD). A buyer or existing home owner can do meaningful amounts of remodeling or updates to their existing home without having a higher cost second lien thanks to this special FHA loan program. "Luxury items" like a hot tub and a swimming pool are not allowed by this FHA loan program. Repaint, remodel cabinetry in kitchens and bathrooms, add wallpaper, replace appliances and flooring and even add a room to an existing structure (which will increase the value of the homes square footage). The biggest advantage with this government loan program is that instead of having two higher interest l...

Hiking Mount Galbraith Loop in Golden, CO on a perfect spring day will keep my spirits soaring for the entire week!  Although the morning began with hazy skies, my husband, Jim and dog, Jake, joined me west of Denver at the mouth of Golden Gate Canyon.  Just minutes from downtown Golden, the trailhead provided plenty of parking as well as restroom facilities. The initial part of the hike called Cedar Gulch Trail still had patches of slippery ice and mud but we quickly gained elevation which took us to sunnier terrain.  I carried my new Nikon D7000 in the hopes I would find some early springtime flowers. We hiked for 1.3 miles to the beginning of the Mount Galbraith Loop, 1.6 miles, which would provide 360 degree views. About ten minutes into the hike, I was thrilled to find a clump of P...
