red bluff: Chimney sweep's of old - Flue Season - 09/08/13 12:55 PM
Flue Season Just got back from the CREIA conference in Sacramento. Had a great time seeing old friends and meeting some new ones. Met a fascinating guy by the name of Bob Ferrari of He had some interesting stories of how the chimney sweeps of old used to send children down the chimney to clean it... when they outlawed sending children into this peril that caused all kinds of irreparable damage to them. Then one of the newer methods was to tie a chicken's legs together and send them down the flue and let the flapping wings brush the soot out … (4 comments)

red bluff: Interesting roof designs - 12/18/12 12:10 PM
Driving through San Jose yesterday I saw this roof design, It has been many years since I saw this roof type but it certainly lends some character to a home, don't you agree?
I love this design style and the roof adds a craftsman quality to the design.
Spanish influence is clear with this one. Check out the wrought iron at the second story balcony.
12" classic profile is the most popular of the roof profiles for residential roofing.
We used to manufacture several different types of sheet metal roofing. 
This is a 50-year roof but dimensional comp shingle roofs come in a wide array of … (6 comments)

red bluff: 203k consultant Cottonwood and Redding CA area - 11/29/12 11:39 PM
This week we had the pleasure of hosting Tom Glenn a Cottonwood 203k consultant as he joined us on our 203k projects for the day on Wednesday. He was able to put his input in on two full 203k consultations and observe how we did a couple of draw inspections. Tom has been a contractor for years and it has such a good eye for what we do as 203k consultants. His insight is very handy with the problems that are typical in our field as he comes up with creative solutions to save money for the client and, at the … (2 comments)

red bluff: Contractors and the FHA 203k loan program in Redding and Red Bluff - 06/03/12 01:53 PM
Realtors and agents NEED to get this as it is important for a successful 203k loan project. It is your client who will suffer. The Streamlined k doesn’t “REQUIRE” a consultant… that is a key word, you are fooling yourself if you don’t use a consultant on a 203k loan. A 203k consultant is your KEY to a successful project… we are the glue that can hold it together. On a streamlined k just have the consultant do the 203k inspection rather than a home inspection, or have your home inspector take a course on the 203k so they can be … (3 comments)

red bluff: 203k loan Redding, Cottonwood, Red Bluff - 03/15/09 06:00 AM
The 203k loan program has gone out of this world. This time FHA has really stepped up to the plate. Every real estate professional should check the loan limits in your county or the counties you work in. In high cost areas you are back in the business with Jumbo loans that have rehab attached to them... if there is no rehab then FHA may still be your answer with the 203b. With loan limits in excess of $729,000 in "HIGH COST" areas and dramatic increases in all areas of the USA, this is the "Hottest Loan Product on the Market". … (6 comments)
