Tips for decorating an outdoor patio space

It was time for my old patio furniture to go and I wasn't really sad about it. When I bought it, I hadn't really considered how we would use the space or really considered comfort. Now that I was starting with a blank slate, I put a lot more thought into my selections. I'd like to share with you a few things to consider when decorating your outdoor spaces.  But first up, here are some before pictures: I was staring off with a really good foundation. Back in the day, this was actually grass wit...

DIY Southern front porch renovation with curb appeal

When we moved into our current lakefront home, my husband and I were so happy with the glorious windows and view from the back of the house that we kind of forgot all about the front of the house. It was fine, but just so boring. The house was painted a pale yellow color, the front door had completely the wrong look for us, and the huge front porch was a giant blank slate with no charm. This all added up to ZERO curb appeal! So when we were offered an opportunity to work with The Home Depot ...

A lawsuit between 2 startups shows how founders can lose out on millions when selling their companies

In April, 2019, Seattle home improvement startup Porch acquired LA home-moving concierge startup Kandela in an all-stock deal. A year later, Kandela is suing Porch. Kandela agreed to sell for $11.5 million, the lawsuit says, with a little under half the amount paid up front and the remainder when Kandela hit certain sales goals after the deal closed. This is a common way for some companies to structure deals when they want to be sure they are not overpaying. Kandela's lawsuit claims that certa...

The North Carolina prefab builders at Deltec launched a line of affordable net-zero energy homes last year to great fanfare from off-grid buffs around the U.S. Now we're thrilled to see them introduce a brand new design to this...

Angie’s List Looks to Grow Home Services Marketplace in New Tech Era

When Angie’s List got its start 21 years ago, it was anything but a tech company. Back then the consumer ratings service was exactly what its name implied: a hard-copy list of home contractors who were recommended by their customers. It didn’t even have a website until 1999, and the first iteration was nothing more than a digital version of the list. Today the Indianapolis-based firm is utilizing technology to power and promote an online software platform that CEO Scott Durchslag calls “the...
