Written by RJT intern, Remington Colbert

Louisville Business First published an article from Niche.com. Niche conducted a study to see what the best suburbs are in Louisville. The criteria to determine the ratings of the top 25 suburbs were based on housing (both quality and price), public school ratings, and diversity demographics. The Louisville Area's Best Suburbs article is a great way to see where your neighborhood might stand. Or if you are looking to move to the area, it might be a way to help narrow down your search.

Easy Pool Upgrades

Written by RJT intern Remington Colbert

Pools are  a luxury feature found fairly commonly in areas that get warm during the summer. Having a pool can be a mixed emotion. On one hand it is fun and relaxing; it makes it wase to entertain. However, anyone with a pool knows it is a lot of maintenance and can be very expensive. Personally, the benefits of having a pool outweight the irritations in my opinion. If you are lucky (or cursed) enough to have a pool, here are some neat ideas to add before the summer season gets here. 


Pools are a fun way to to waste a summer afternoon. The excitement of having your own mini waterpark at home will make all the neighborhood kids jealous. Pools can be expensive, however temporary ones can work just as well if there is a hose spouting water.

It's a Dog House!

Written by RJT intern Remington Colbert,

Everyone loves their pets and want them around 24/7, however all the things that come along with a pet can get in the way. Cages, toys, food bowls, harnesses, beds, etc. The list goes on and on. However besides storage solutions many new home builders and remolders are creating designs to blend pet's needs with great design. Whether you're remodeling, building, or just like looking a pictures of cute animals, hopefully these ideas can help in your home planning process! MoneyWatch CBS had some great ideas back in 2014, and these ideas can be implemented in your home! 

Custom Staircases

Just like people, animals get old over time and have dificulty on stairs. Small pets have a disadvantage with stairs from the start. Creative stair solutions like these create a unique look, easy movement for the pets, and makes for an interesting conversation starter! 

Doors with windows

Bring the outdoors in, our keep the pets active with the outside world! Windows not only provide for additional light, they create a high end look and keep the pets less isolated. 

Pet Doors

Builders are getting away from the pet doors built into the main exterior door. Now it is common to find additional doors placed to the side. It's quite similar to the Alice in Wonderland doors that are tiny! For a clean look order a custom that is identical to the main door!


Louisville Cool?

That's right! According to Forbes, Louisville was ranked as the coolest city in the United States to visit! It seems kind of strange of you are one of the many people who are from here, but we do have a lot going for us! Because of our unique history, vibrant culture, and incredible food and drink scene, it is no wonder that people would want to come here and experience our Unbridled Spirit! Thank you Forbes for the great honor of our wonderful city! 


Outdoor Privacy

With spring fast approaching, everyone is itching to get outside and feel the warm days. However, when living in urban areas it can be a challenge to have peace and serenity when their are neighbors everywhere around. Some people like lots of land with no one around, yet many others like having the convience of the city, a small lot, or the comradery of neighbors. One thing everyone wants is a sense of privacy. Well if your don't have the luxury of large tracts of land, these ideas may help bring in some privacy. 

Privacy Screen

Simple, Inexpensive, and sleak. This is a great last minute fix for entertaining or a new look in your design.

Garden Gates

These are great off the side of the garage to hide your backyard from the front of the house. Garden Gates give a luxurious look that does not take up much space.
