Holiday Weekend and Wet Dog Roundup - 05/27/08 11:31 AM
This past weekend was the first time in nearly a month that I took some time off. Granted, it was only a day, but taking time for yourself is important, and it's nice to get away from time to time. I spent Saturday at my parent's home in Virginia(literally, smack dab in the middle of nowhere), and enjoyed the beautiful weather and some time with the dogs. They say happiness is a WARM puppy. As far as my dogs are concerned, they think happiness is a WET puppy. Perhaps my dogs made a mistake. They could (1 comments)
Swan Point Project Get's Board of Works Approval in Annapolis! - 05/23/08 03:51 PM
Swan Point's proposed development project won approval this week at the Maryland State Board of Public Works hearing in Annapolis, MD this past Wednesday. I attended the meeting to view first hand what Governor Martin O'Malley had to say about the project, and to voice my support for the project. I was impressed at the supporter turnout for the project. Over 2 dozen people were there to support the development, and although 3 people showed up to protest the development, only two of them decided to speak out against Brookfield Homes and US Steel's proposal. The Governor (0 comments)
Interesting Buildings: The Wigwam in Waldorf, MD - 05/22/08 05:07 PM
Old-Timers and Life-Long residents can remember fondly the old Wigwam bakery (Walls Bakery) on Rt. 301 in Waldorf, MD. I grew up in the area myself, and I dearly miss the old place! They had the BEST eclairs in Maryland, the kind you just can't help yourself when you saw them. I'm a sugar junkie, and the Wigwam fed my habit. The building has been closed up for years, and it's future seems uncertain at this point. What's fascinating about this building is that it typifies what Waldorf once was: A roadside stop for truckers traveling up (2 comments)

Waldorf, MD has a lot of new home construction developments, and one of them is the Autumn Hills Subdivision, located off of Smallwood Drive, just a stone's throw from the St. Charles Towne Center Mall. There are two different builders in that community: Ryan Homes, who has subdivisions and developments all over the Southern Maryland region, and Craftmark Homes. The Ryan Homes there are starting at $340k, and the Craftmark Homes are starting at $550k. What's nice about this community (aside from the proximity to the mall and shopping) is that all of the homes (0 comments)

Adventures in New Home Buying - 05/06/08 01:16 PM
I got a call this week from a woman who had read my blog post "Are New Construction Prices Negotiable?", and she was curious about how to deal with builders in Prince George's County who seem to be playing some sort of "Shell Game" when it comes to dropping the price, charging more for upgrades, and generally causing confusion in regards to how much the bottom line is really going to be. I'm a firm believer that builders do this intentionally. They're struggling for profits, and in the housing pinch they're forced to drop the prices to (2 comments)
A Car Nut's Holy Land is Conquered! - 05/01/08 08:51 AM
I’ve heard people say that you need to take time out to smell the roses, but I’m not exactly what you would call a talented gardener. In all honesty, I could kill pretty much any plant known to man. I had a little potted cactus once, but I think it died from lack of water. Whoever coined the term didn’t exactly have me in mind. I much prefer relaxing with rusty old automotive restoration projects than I do cultivating my weeds. This weekend I managed to take a day off and Thomas and I ended up in Carlisle, PA (2 comments)
