Reno Custom Cabinets ~ Outstanding Workmanship at a Reasonable PriceWe assisted with some remodeling in a kitchen in McCurtain County and could not be more pleased with the results.   It involved some unique requests and not every cabinet builder that we talked to wanted to take it on.  But Reno Custom Cabinets did!Let me explain the unusual requests.  The kitchen had very unique cabinets built out of pine planks.... NOT pine plywood.. but knotty pine planks. They had been in place for 30 years and were still loved by the homeowner but as time rolled on, they found themselves wanting/needing more cabinets space.  The couple had also recently semi-retired and discovered that they both enjoyed cooking together so they were longing for a big island and pantry area, a special place for cook...

Special Government Home Renovation Loan Program using FHA 203k Rehab Loans in Paris TX.Many people are not aware of a special government loan program that is part of the Federal Housing Administration or FHA(a department within HUD). A buyer or existing home owner can do meaningful amounts of remodeling or updates to their existing home without having a higher cost second lien thanks to this special FHA loan program.However, this loan program doesn't allow for "luxury items" in your home such as a swimming pool, hot tub, or other accessories. Although, you can repaint, replace flooring and appliances, add a room to an existing structure (which can add to value tremendously as you increase the square feet of your home) as well as remodel cabinetry in kitchens and bathrooms.This loan prog...

Sometimes Customer Service is a Paper Rose It's often the little things that make a difference.  Lunch was at Denny's in Paris today.  We had a different waitor than we've had before.  We ordered our food but he returned shortly to inform me that they were out of spinach and could not prepare what I had ordered.  I adjusted quickly and told him what I wanted to replace it with but with an adjustment, leave the grilled potatoes off.  He offered to bring broccoli to replace the potatoes which was perfect.  In a few minutes he returned with a salt shaker that had the lid removed (converted into a small vase) and a paper sandwich wrapper  fashioned  into the shape of a rose that he was just finishing up as he came to the table.  The food was cooked perfect and the paper rose was a very nice...

Video Home For Sale Fort Towson Hugo Oklahoma Paris Texas 4 bed 2 bath If you've been thinking of more room.. a larger home.. need or want 4 bedrooms and your family needs 2 full baths..you'll love this home. A spacious 2484 sq ft approximately with an additional 2100 sq ft garage under roof.  Home is situated on 1 acre, large enough for space and nice size yard and small enough to take care of with minimal mowing.  I shot this video recently with my pocket video camera, not a PROFESSIONAL video but a wonderful way to let you view the home.  If your sound is turned on, there is a description of what you're looking at as we walk through it.  If you have your home listed and your agent doesn't do videos... maybe you should reconsider who you list with.
