Colder days are here to stay and it’s time to get your fireplace roaring again. Before you fill your home with the warmth and smell of a cracking fire, though, there are some precautions you should take.
1. Check the Chimney: Have you called a chimney sweep recently? Experts recommend you have your chimney cleaned once a year. A fireplace is only as good as its chimney, so make sure you have it cleaned and inspect the exterior structure to make sure there are no obvious issues there as well.
2. Open the Flue: Ever started a fire and had the room fill with smoke? If you’re new to fireplaces, you may not realize that this happens when the flue is closed. Many people close them in order to keep out small animals when their fireplaces aren’t in use. Simply look up and reach for a chain or lever to open it back up.
3. Vacuum: A quick vacuuming of the flue, smoke shelf, and the surrounding hearth is the last step to preparing for fabulous fires for many months to come.
If you’re about to be without a fireplace in the upcoming winter months, we have plenty of homes that could have you curling up by the fire in no time!
In the bedroom the key piece of furniture is, of course, the bed. So, it should come as no shock that this design decision necessitates careful consideration of all of your options. While it may be easy for some, the range of choices out there for beds and headboards can be a little overwhelming, especially when you can’t see what the bed looks like in an actual room.

You know something is a housing trend when you see it in homes in not just one or two cities, but all across the Metroplex. That’s exactly the case with arched entries, the latest feature we’ve noticed popping up in our available inventory.
There’s not much to say that these pictures don’t say for themselves. These archways are both beautiful and inviting, and they create stunning curb appeal for the homes and doorways that they frame. This architectural feature has made a lasting mark on North Texas homes, and we only expect that it will continue to rise in popularity.
