Privacy Practices For Residential Dwellings

Privacy Practices For Residential Dwellings – As in much of the country, the housing crisis has put pressure on new and old residents in the Hudson Valley. In the past few years, a confluence of factors has led some municipalities, such as Newburgh and Kingston, to go so far as to declare housing emergencies. A flurry of post-Covid newcomers, an increase in short-term rentals, and continued problems with zoning and new construction have made renting and buying in the area unaffordable for many. A debate rages over how to deal with these problems, with multiple stakeholders, from village mayors to state officials, disagreeing on the best approaches. How can many people add housing to an area to escape the density of large urban centers?

A partial answer may lie in backyards, basements, attics, or other ancillary spaces of existing properties. Accessory dwelling units, or simply ADUs, add secondary units to … Read the rest

Updating Bathroom Fixtures

Updating Bathroom Fixtures – We moved into our house just shy of two years ago (at the time, I was 36 weeks pregnant with Little Brother). The house is great, but the original owner bought it for the purpose of renting it out. So, you can imagine the quality of everything—basically, a low-end builder’s grade.

Updating Bathroom Fixtures

However, we didn’t have enough money to renovate the rest of the bathroom—namely, the fixtures. Therefore, all builder’s grade and brass/gold materials remain. Our little bathtub corner looks great, but our entire vanity area…not so much.
