Our Cold weather in North Vancouver has caused some pipes to burst!
We got quite a few calls the last few days from customers needing help with frozen pipes.
Some where caused by leaving a hose attached at an outside otherwise frost free tap. Please detach everything (hose or any connectors) from your out side taps so they can drain properly. Otherwise they cause a backlog of water into your house pipe which can freeze and burst!.
If you have any questions just send me a comment.
Hope you get through the cold weather without bursting pipes.

It is always hard to find enough storage in an entrance area for a family of four and in the smaller homes you have limited space. Build ins are quite expensive and often size down the space available, especially if you like to keep it open and airy and have different heights to deal with like in our case we had a small area beside stairs. So we created a "mudroom" area out of some ikea parts which functions well. For everybody who is interested we used 2 LEKSVIK racks each with 5 hooks, one to be used for the kids at a lower hight and one for the adults and build a bench out of the NORDLI series which serves as storage for shoes, bags, gloves & more. I love this new quality modular drawer system. You can customize and stack the drawer units. The come in different width and are all soft closing. The possibilities are endless and it is easy to add units at a later time. When the storage needs grew. In our case we added a Bamboo counter top from the Ikea ALDERN bathroom series. To serve as seating area for the kids and adults. The counter depth needed a bit of an adjustment but other wis it was a perfect fit. One tip at the end for what ever project you like to plan you can hack a lot of Ikea series to customize and use for different areas. Just watch out that anything you need to resize is full wood not particle board and veneer otherwise its hard to cut it down and have a quality finished look.
We would like to thank all our customers for their trust and loyalty within the past years and above all those, who have taken the time to review our work on the Internet & websites like Trusted Pro, Google, Yellow Pages, Yelp, Houzz, Homestars.

Time to replace your out door taps?
Use Frost Free Hose bibs, makes your life much easier to prep for the winter.
If you don't have the money to replace your old out door taps, don't forget to shut the water supply off and drain them, to prevent them from freezing. A frozen outdoor tap can damage a lot in your house as the freeze can extend into your waterline for some serious pipe damage!
