Were you under the pedestrian overpass – sounds like someone throwing a rock…. Thank goodness you were not injured!
My husband, Tom is a general contractor here in West Seattle and specializes in custom remodels and garden hardscape design. Our master and guest baths have heated floor tiles and Tom soon will be certified for Warm-Up radiant floor installation (which he has done for us and other clients in the past). If you’d like Tom to take a look at you project please contact him at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 206 351-3484
Couldn’t agree more – consider joining as part of the volunteer group for planning/working on next year’s tour! As a garden/gardener on last year’s tour we’ve been volunteering since then and can’t say enough about the WSGT folks we’ve had the pleasure of working with.
Support Arts West by going on the West Seattle Garden Tour tomorrow! Arts West is one of the primary beneficiaries of the WSGT and the 8 gardens featured this year are all awesome! Tickets are on sale ($15, children under 12 free) at West Seattle Nursery, Arts West, Capers, Junction True Vale and Met Market.
Without particulars (square footage, finishes, plumbing fixtures etc.) really hard to ball park a price could be anywhere from 50 – 150K based on remodeling projects we’ve done in our own house. Maybe you could repost with more info to get a more idealistic range?
Vincent – LOL
Maybe the contractor has no other alternative but to take his dogs with him (can’t leave them in the house all day and no enclosed yard/area) and he is checking on them to let them out routinely (although poop should be picked up), so not sure there is abuse here. Should I call animal control on those dog owners (and I am one of 2 beautiful dogs) who DON’T PICK UP POOP on my sidewalk????
I wouldn’t dream of exposing my dogs to crowds with children “off leash” running and screaming – whatever happened to the old saying children should be seem and not heard????
I bought the live basil and potted it in a pot in my kitchen and it’s thriving – have had the same plant for over 4 weeks, and I use lots of basil too. Also I grow basil from seed in a pot on my 2nd floor deck (keeps slugs away) – it’s a lot cheaper than the $3.99 bunches at Met Market.
We replaced our lawns years ago with a stone courtyard in front and gravel (dog’s domain) in back and can suggest a variety of low maintenance, drought tolerant plants. Our company specializes in custom hardscape design and we would be happy to provide you with suggestions that fit your budget. We can be contacted at email@example.com.
Sorry you feel that way – our dog was in critical care with Acess for over 6 months and they have many clients who cannot afford the services/cost of care which is why they take donations of meds/etc – they’re not reselling. You might contact local vets like Lien to see if they have clients that would need these foods, seems a waste not to use them.
You can always try donating to a vet clinic like an emergency/critical care clinic. Acces in Lake City is a great 24 hour emergency critical care group and when our dog passed away we donated her remaining meds to them – my guess is they’ll take specialty dog foods as well. 206 364-1660
Wow – what a bummer. Seems like you’ve contacted the appropriate interior contractors but if yard sloping is part of the issue maybe talking to a landscape designer/architect would be appropriate. The Berger Partnership is a good, reputable firm that we have worked with many times (we’re a general contractor) their website is http://www.bergerpartnership.com. Also an alternative, our company specializes in custom remodel/hardscape design and we could take a look at the yard and give recommendations; firstname.lastname@example.org. Good luck – older homes are treasures!
My guess would be house sparrows and/or house finches – we’ve got a ton of both at our house and all are active at 4:30 am.
Although I also agree with WSMom, try some white distilled vinegar directly on the plants – it’s worked for me with my neighbor’s encroaching weeds! Good luck!
Sorry not my LOUD family (kids still a little too young for those types of parties – guess we have that to look forward to!) – but noise at 4 and 6 a.m. is in violation of Seattle noise ordinance so you could call those parties in. ChrisB and Dalamar, I did have an air horn that my hubby got me for an xmas joke gift a year or so ago but alas the canister was empty when I pulled it out last evening hence the “errant” garden watering!
All windows are fairly new since we just remodeled in 2002 and they are good quality. I must say the hose worked quite well last night after 5+ hours of screaming!
I never use honey buckets for this reason alone – they are just gross, especially if you have to actually sit in them. But if it is a honey bucket it is most likely leased and maintained by the company it comes from – up to the individual/city dept. leasing it to call in for cleaning if it’s not being done or needs more frequent attention. Hope you didn’t kill the tree Jiggers but going outside is gross too and I think against the law if you are caught.
Check with Builder’s Hardware Supply 1516 15th Ave West in Seattle, 206 281-3700, if they don’t have something that will work I’m sure they can direct you to someone who does.
Try Florida Tile or Dal Tile in the design center area (6th Ave S and environs) of downtown.
Try Pacific Sheet Metal – their place on Spokane St burned down in January but they have relocated near Todd Shipyard and have signs posted with new number and location outside their former Spokane St location.
I’ve purchased my tomato plants from Swanson’s for a number of years – since I’m a container gardener I usually limit to cherry and grape varieties but have purchased heirloom varieties at Swanson’s before. I was there on Tuesday and they had a large selection of tomatoes and all are healthy – hurry though as their selection goes quickly! Keep the starts inside for at least a few more weeks – I harden them up by bringing them out during sunny days and in at night before planting.
