In recent years, granite has become a popular surface choice for bathroom and kitchen countertops. Granite is beautiful and extremely durable, but some homeowners hesitate to use it because of myths about it being unsafe or difficult to care for. Below, find a list of granite myths dispelled: 1. Granite is absorbent.Granite qualifies as impervious to water and is actually less absorbent than some solid surface (plastic) products. 2. Granite stains easily.Granite is resistant to stains. Generally any liquid spilled on a granite top, if wiped up within a few minutes, will not stain. Liquids that do not evaporate, such as oils, will cause stains only if left to soak into the stone. 3. Granite requires a lot of maintenance.Routine cleaning with a mild soap and water is all that is generall...

A PLACE TO CALL HOME...for Me and my family anyway.  If you are looking for a neighborhood that has a great balance of restrictions and freedom then Saddletree Ranch is it. Solid homes, good family amenities, clubhouse, location, & roads. As the name might suggest horses are welcome with limitation based on lot size. Most lots are about 1.5 acres & up.  Saddletree Ranch Estates is located about 8 miles from Bee Cave, TX to the NE & about 9 miles N of Dripping Springs. This makes us just close enough to shopping and services but not to close, if you know what I mean. We moved here 10 years ago and it was 20 miles to most "needs."  Saddletree Ranch shares 2 school districts. Dripping Springs ISD serves about 60% of the residences and Lake Travis ISD serves about 40%. Both schools have goo...
