Urban Attitudes by La-Z-Boy Furnishings Collection Featured at “The Mill at Broadway” New Model Home

After years of housing stagnation, Sacramento is once again becoming the hotbed for new home developments with fresh and updated interiors.  Recently, the VP of Design for the local La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries, Palm Singh, was selected to design one of the largest new home models in the “The Mill at Broadway” development built by Bardis Homes.  Created as an urban residential community in downtown Sacramento, “The Mill at Broadway” new home models opened to the public on October 24, 2015.    

After a designer-search contest last year, Bardis Homes assembled a “dream team” of eight local designers, including Singh, who were tasked with transforming the various model homes with fresh and contemporary interiors that reflect the desire for more casually living and still be at prices that buyers could afford.

Paul Hills Design & Hills Construction is proud to present a special “Design/Build Showcase” with guided tours of a newly completed 9,300-square-foot home in Granite Bay on Saturday, September 21.  The complimentary guided tours depart every 30 minutes from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will be led by builder Paul Hills inside the unique custom home, and by landscape expert Adam McCowen outside the home so guests can view the custom backyard layout and beautifully landscaped grounds. During the “sneak peek” guided tours (before the furnishings arrive and the homeowners move in), guests will be encouraged to ask questions to learn more about what they see, the techniques and materials used, and the design-build process.  The home is located at 9235 Royal Crest Drive in Granite Bay (just off East Roseville Parkway, near Barton Road).

The Chickens of Sacramento Valley & A Giveaway!

One thing I find most gardeners love? Animals ... cats, dogs, goats, squirrels, ferrets, bunnies, birds. But, while we love our dogs and cats, it seems the chicken is the up and coming fancy pet of the urban gardener!
