monroe wa: Do It Yourself vs. Hire a Contractor - 03/25/16 10:01 AM
During a recent windstorm, the fence between our property and the neighbor in the back received some damage.  The neighbor obtained a bid for repairs.  We were faced with the decision to repair the fence ourselves or hire a contractor to make the repairs.
The fence didn’t appear to be too badly damaged.  There was one fence post that was obviously broken at the ground level and would need to be replaced.  There was one other fence post that seemed loose and would need to be replaced.  There were several boards that had been blown loose and would need to be screwed … (1 comments)

monroe wa: Fall in the Snoqualmie Valley - 10/05/15 07:22 AM
Duvall WA & Monroe WA
The sights that indicate fall has arrived are all around us:  Pumpkins - round and orange, corn stalks with golden tassels, golden leaves falling on the ground, sunny blue skies with puffy white clouds, cows grazing in the fields, children in school cross walks, black and gold striped caterpillars, orange marigolds, a rainbow of dahlias, boots, sweaters and scarves.
