Lovely Laundry

Laundry rooms are all about work, so it's essential that your laundry room layout optimizes the space to help you be efficient on laundry day.  The size of your laundry room isn't as important as the way you arrange the  appliances and accessories.  Check out these lovely laundry rooms built by Cameo Homes Inc.

The first and most important principle of laundry room design is ease of access.  Not only should it be easy for you to load and unload clothes from your washing machine and dryer,  you should also be able to perform these tasks without bumping into things.  

Once you've created a well-lit layout that gives you  easy access to your appliances, the next step is to add helpful accessories that will make laundry day easier.  Keep a wastebasket near the dryer so you don't have to walk anywhere to empty the lint trap.  If you want a  table for folding clothes, opt for a hanging table that you can lower when  needed and raise so its out of the way when it's not in use.

Finally, don't underestimate the power of a little decor.   Some pleasant accents, like flowers or pictures, will help laundry day be  a little more pleasant.  Also, since you'll probably be working in the laundry  room for extended periods on a regular basis,  it's good to invest a few dollars  in an inexpensive radio or CD player so you can listen to music while you sort,  fold, wash and dry laundry.

To help you accomplish these goals, take  careful measurements of the room you plan to use for laundry before you go  shopping for appliances.  This will help you select models that can fit  comfortably into the assigned space while leaving room left over for accessories  and laundry aids.

Snack Happy

School has started and boy, are these kids hungry when they arrive home.  So what snacks do you feed

them?  Here are 10 great tips for keeping your kids snacking healthy.   Our friend Christie Jensen shared

this great article with us, thanks Christie!

   No. 1: Keep junk food out of the house

Keep the sweets out of the house, then you won’t be tempted.  This would be helpful for myself.  Parents need to set good examples by choosing healthy snacks for yourself.

   No. 2: Go for the grain

Snack time is a great time to get your whole grains in.  These can be in whole grain pretzels, tortillas or whole grain cereals.

   No. 3: Mix and match

Dip baby carrots in fat free ranch or hummus.  Dip fresh fruit in fat free yogurt.  Spread the peanut butter on veggies and fruit.  I know my kids love to dip stuff, so why not make it healthy.

   No. 4: Broaden the menu

Try pineapple, cranberries, tangelos or roasted soy nuts.

   No. 5: Revisit breakfast

Serve breakfast foods — such as scrambled eggs and whole-grain toast — as healthy snacks for kids in the afternoon.

   No. 6: Sweeten it up

Just because it is healthy doesn’t mean it has to taste bland.  Give a little sweet stuff, fat-free pudding, frozen yogurt of fruit bars.  One of our favorites is a fresh fruit smoothie with skim milk and fat-free yogurt.

   No. 7: Have fun

Make fruit kabobs (recipe is on an earlier post).  Make towers out of graham crackers, make funny faces out of your fruit.  Use cookie cutters with your whole grain breads or cheese.

   No. 8: Promote independence

Keep a selection of ready-to-eat veggies in the refrigerator. Leave fresh fruit in a bowl on the counter. Store low-sugar, whole-grain cereal and fruit canned or packaged in its own juice in an easily accessible cabinet.

   No. 9: Don’t be fooled by labeling gimmicks

Foods marketed as low-fat or fat-free can still be high in calories and sodium. Likewise, foods touted as cholesterol-free can still be high in fat, saturated fat and sugar. Check nutrition labels to find out the whole story.

   No. 10: Designate a snacking zone

Restrict snacking to certain areas, such as the kitchen. You’ll save your child countless calories from mindless munching in front of the TV. If your child needs to snack on the go, offer string cheese, yogurt sticks, cereal bars, a banana or other drip-free items.

I hope this list is helpful to you.  It is great to be reminded to have healthy snacks.  There is so much processed unhealthy foods that are easy to buy.  It does take more effort and planning to have healthy snacks around, but what a great way to get more fruits, veggies and whole grains into your child’s diet (and yours!).

Where is Tuhaye?

Park City Resort Builders, a Division of Cameo Homes Inc.,  has been building Luxury Homes in Tuhaye,

Utah for the past 6 years.  Many people are familiar with the Tuhaye community and yet others have

never heard of it.  So where exactly is Tuhaye?

 

 

Tuhaye is located in Kamas, Utah along the eastern slopes of the Jordanelle Reservoir,  just minutes

from Park City, Utah.  It is a 2,000+ acre neighborhood with a 20-mile trail system where mountain

bikers and hikers can always find somewhere to explore. 

By owning a home or home site at Tuhaye, you have an all-inclusive membership to the Talisker Club

which includes all  the amenities at Tuhaye.  Amenities include year-round excursions such as fly

fishing, waterskiing, wakeboarding, tubing behind a championship speedboat, use of the clubhouse

at Talisker Tower, fitness center, heated pool complete with waterslide, Talisker Spa, Wildstar Rangers,

the children's program,  horseback riding, skiing, fire pit and many more. 

  

Home sites range from under an acre to 5 acres.  From Tuhaye, you have views of the Timpanogos and

Wasatch Mountains and the Jordanelle Reservoir.  The residents, full and part-time, spend summers by

the pool and on the golf course, winters on the cross-country ski track and year-round dining at Tuhaye

Table Café.   

Mark O'Meara, Masters and British Open Champion, designed Tuhaye's Golf Course which offers 7,800

yards of private play, an 18-acre driving range and an eventual 9-hole course.

Park City Resort Builders will be showcasing another luxury home in Tuhaye for the Park City Showcase

of Homes 2011 which will be held the weekends of August 20-21, 27-28, and September 3-5.   We hope you

will come and visit us up in the beautiful community of Tuhaye.

Re-create Craftsman Charm In Your Home

Arts and Crafts - also known as Craftsman- homes were originally constructed  as a response to the highly styled, elaborate Victorian popular in the early 20th century.  Today, these homes are enjoying a comeback, and many homeowners aspire to create the clean lines and charming design in their own environment.  Craftsman homes imbue warmth and simplicity, a getaway from today's hectic everyday life.  By incorporating a few elements with a Craftsman touch, you can transform your house into a cozy and inviting bungalow.                                                         
*An inviting entryway:  The front door sets the tone for the entire home and adding a premium wood Craftsman-style door, like those offered by Jeld-Wen, can truly add traditional appeal.  These wood doors feature clean lines, simple flat panels, squared sticking and optional shelves.  Because incorporating light is important to creating atmosphere in an Arts and Crafts home, doors can also include decorative glass designs that enhance the natural light and ambiance of the house.  Selecting a Craftsman entryway can set the stage for an interior's decor and leave a lasting impression on anyone crossing the threshold.
 

* Earthy appeal:  Traditional Arts and Crafts homes are painted in earth tones, emphasizing natural warmth inside and out.  Choose greens and blues for a bold splash of color in the great room or living room; paint trim in whites or leave molding a natural wood color for an earthy feel.  Creams and taupe have long been associated with the Craftsman style, and incorporating these colors into your home furnishings or decorations will add to its appeal.  Bringing plants into your home's interior will also help achieve a warm, natural Craftsman feel.

* The finishing touch:  Craftsman or Mission style furniture is an important element in creating a simple, earthy environment in your home.  This furniture is extremely popular and can be found in stores as varied as woodworkers' studios, antique shops and even major retailers.

Most often known for its simple but sturdy design, Craftsman furniture, found in a wide variety of wood species including red oak, mahogany and walnut, is recognizable by its slats and spindles, hand hammered copper hardware and geometric lines without ornamentation.  With the right pieces in place, furniture can put the finishing touches on your Craftsman home.
