Puppy Love in The Bristol TN/VA Area ....Which One Would You Pick? I'm currently working with clients that just moved here from Louisiana ...Their Lab gave birth to 10 beautiful puppies pretty much on arrival! Lucky for the owners, they had a fully unfinished basement, which has made a great home for the pups until they can find them a home of their own.  They are being weaned right now because they all have their teeth coming in so it is obviously uncomfortable for the mom!  Aimee and I are contemplating adopting one of the these rambunctious little creatures - but we have different views on "Parenting methods".  Aimee will definitely be the disciplinarian and I will be the enabler .... (you know she is the teacher and I like to make everybody happy). We will let you know what we decid...

To Build Or Not To Build....That Is The Question! ...Now Here is my Answer! This is the post I wrote back on 7.23.11 ...........The comments were great!  Scroll down to the bottom to see what my answer is! We all know it's a great time to buy an existing home....good supply, lower prices, and great interest rates! The big question is...."Is it a good time to build"? Some people say because of all the recent storms across the country that building material has sky rocketed.....BUT... My personal opinion is that it could be a great time to build if you follow some simple steps. With new homes being built at a slower pace than in the past you may just find a builder who is ready and willing to build your dream home at a reduced price... Here are some important things to consider if you dec...
