Spring Home Care

Spring is finally here! Steve Jacobsen, McDonald’s Customer Care Manager, shares a few spring home care tips:

  • Test your air conditioner when outside air temperatures are above 55 degrees and check before the 90 degree weather comes
  • Check exterior caulking
  • Check H.R.V filters
  • Turn off your humidifier
  • Turn on sprinkler system and/or exterior faucets
  • Reinstall any screens removed for the winter

Trends In Home Design

Volume is back! Teresa St. Amant, McDonald’s Director of Architectural Design, has pinpointed vaulted ceilings as being one of the most historically influential design elements to date. These spaces are used to enhance the home by….

  • Allowing for additional windows, thus maximizing the natural light and airy feeling of a space,
  • Giving the illusion of a room size larger than reality by drawing the eye upward, and
  • Creating an opportunity for “jewelry” features such as beams, lighting fixtures, and ceiling treatments.

Great rom, kitchen, staircase or elsewhere? The question this season is not when, but WHERE will you decide to incorporate a volume space in your home?
