For anyone interested there is a great piece of software for mac that I use to catalogue a large proportion of my possessions (my books in particular) but it covers other items too, like electronics or tools. Its called delicious library and the beauty of it is that purchases can be scanned in using both the barcode or manually. The program will also provide a full description such as year of manufacturer, value etc and can be published to the web for online access. Unfortunately it is a mac only program but for those apple users out there I recommend it. It took a while to scan my 1000 or so books in but now its a quick matter to input any new items as I get them. The items are displayed as an image on a visual shelf so that its easy to identify them at a glance.
For those of us who don't always trust the cloud based services the other device I recently purchased is called a "transporter" which is a personalized cloud storage device. You would need 2, one at your house and one somewhere else such as a relatives place. With it you can back up any files straight to the second device and if any catastrophe befalls your property you can instantly access the same files on the second device remotely.

Great article, although I did not have the hassle of settling with the insurance like you did after our house fire, you do bring up some great points. I was very fortunate to have a friend/agent who had been looking out for us for 17 years and he had an adjuster, to what was left of the house, two days after the fire and a check another two days later. My story may be the exception to the rule, but definitely getting the house rebuilt was WAY more difficult than dealing with the insurance company.

Chicago Mosaics, I really love the leaves, they are sooooooo fun. Hide em in the bathroom? Is there a line at the bathroom door? I'd rather gather and share them on the porch. Just happen to live in Wisconsin so I can relate to the trees.

Another classic design style. Clawfoot tub? How about a vintage modern casting based on an 1880 French design? or taking Farmhouse all the way to Barn Retreat.

i am trying to pick how dark my tint should be. I have a western exposure and a lot of glass, so I originally thought I should get the darkest-15 Night Vision by 3M. But as I look at the sample, my landscaping looks so much better through the 25. the dealer tells me that the damage blocking between the two is not that significant and to choose the one I like the most. I am concerned that it will be like most things I have done-when making the moderate choice I always wish later that I had done more. Any thoughts?

Deirdre - why don't you pay to install one of each side by side on two windows. Sit on it a few days.

I agree the heat savings is not that significant, and would personally go for the slightly less heat blockage but have the view you will enjoy the most.

We live in an older home without A/C, so we leave our windows open at night to cool off. Since our bedroom has five! doors, furniture tends to be under the double hung windows, making them difficult to access to open and close. The room with the bed in the middle of the windows made me think of that.

I solved the small-bedroom problem in my 100-year-plus central-stair colonial by hunting down an antique 3/4 spool bed. Love it!
