So the wife and are in our log home, thanks to Peele Timber out of Middlesex NC.,. They are the best people and working crew that any one can afford.

Hi, I'm looking to buy a home in Edmonton. It has been six months since I'm in a hunt for a dream home. As you all know buying a home is kind of a long term investment, we can't change it that easy! That is why it took a little longer to find a good one.The thing is, I had a plan of buying a home within the budget of $400-$450k(In the case of houses which doesn't need any renovation afterward). The house which satisfied me seem to cost around $500k including some patch-up works. I can make it…Continue
