Clever organization in St. Matthews house

Clever Storage Idea

One of the fun things about selling real estate is running into all kinds of very clever ideas.  I was showing a home for sale in St Matthews last week and ran across this storage technique in a hall linen/bathroom closet.  With clear pockets, it was easy for any family member to identify small items that would be routinely needed, yet they were stored in an out-of -the way place on the inside of the door.  This seller gets and A+ for organization in a tough spot!

Have a great week everyone!


Germantown's Best Popcorn?

Louisville's Best Popcorn?

Am listening to the football playoffs and talking to friends.  All of a sudden I have a craving for some great popcorn.  Am told the best is at Eiderdown's Food & Drink in  Louisville's Germantown Neighborhood.  Has anyone ever had popcorn there?  It is supposed to be popped in duck fat!  Let me know if you have tried it and what it was like.  Seems like a great day to sit on the couch and root for your favorite team!  Oh, and a hot bowl of popcorn would make it just perfect with the right mix of friends!  Hope your team wins.  Have a great week Louisville!

Stucco Siding 

Stucco siding can be spotted on Spanish and Mediterrranean style homes.  You can identify it by its flat, smooth concrete look.  It is composed of cement, water, and materials such as sand and lime.  Many homes built after the 1950's use a lighter synthetic material that resembles stucco.  To tell whether the home is made of genuine stucco, tap the walls;  if you hear a solid sound, it is likely to be real. 

Pros:  Durable, fire-resistant, and a good insulator.  Rarely needs to be repainted; works best in a dry climates. 

Cons:  Not ideal for wet climates; some forms of syntheitc stucco have been associated with moisture problems.
