In the United States, a large number of homeowners only have a bathtub in their homes. Most bathtubs really aren’t just bathtubs; many also double as showers. As nice as it is to only have one bathroom fixture, especially one that can do two jobs, you may be looking for more. If you are looking to remodel your bathroom, you may want to think about purchasing yourself a new bathtub. Unfortunately, you will find that not all bathtubs double as showers; therefore, you may also be in the market for a new shower stall. Home improvement spending is also expected to pick up significantly in several fast-growing, Southern metropolitan areas where homebuilding activity has revived and more households are forming, such as Atlanta, Charlotte, Jacksonville, and Orlando. In contrast, spending will grow modestly or may even decline in Southern metro areas with oil-dependent economies such as Dallas, Houston, and Oklahoma City.
Another tip….you should consider changing all GFCIs at the same time if frequent tripping occurs. The Fresno County Public Library has a database that has the answer for you—the Home Improvement Resource Center , as close as the library website, and it’s FREE!
The first and biggest advantage is the 4 inch diameter blade in the container instead of the 3 inch blade on previous Vitamix containers.

Be careful when doing this though, since you have to be responsible for scheduling, supervising, negotiating fees and terms, and paying the subcontractors, in addition to often being responsible for the requisite permits.
Where are you going to live while the house is being built? It may take MUCH longer to build than you expect it to. Right now, there is so much new building going on that the city is backed up in the permitting department and permits are taking for-ev-er! I just had a contract close where I was representing the buyer who signed a contract August of 2013 to build a new house (with a reputable builder) that was scheduled to close 8 months later. Fast forward to more than a year later, the house finally closed. There can be many delays due to city permits, unpredictable weather, and other unforeseen events. Many times the contract will give the builder the right to delay closing due to acts of God and other delays.
