The Power of Neighbourliness

Have you ever considered the importance of being neighbourly? No matter where we live – townhouses, detached homes, condos, apartments – we all have neighbours. And there’s a lot to be said for how (and how often) we interact and connect with them. Neighbourliness has been on the decline in recent years, and this is unfortunate but not irreparable. Long work weeks, both parents working, over-programmed kids and the pervasiveness of digital media are all reasons for the weakening of relationships with our neighbours, but there are things we can do to strengthen these bonds. And they’re really quite simple. Introduce yourself. We may be stating the obvious here but all of us…

The Uniform Experience: Sarah and John

When our photographer Gordon King revealed to us that he had recently taken photos of a stunning kitchen for Deslaurier Custom Cabinets’ submission to the Greater Ottawa Home Builders Association 2018 Housing Design Awards, we were thrilled to learn that it was not only a Uniform home, but it was from the home of a loyal repeat Uniform homebuyer – belonging to the lovely, Sarah and John. The kitchen photos were so striking that we asked the photographer to go back and shoot the entire home. “A little ditty about Sarah and John”… well, they first purchased from Uniform back in 2002 when they moved into a Uniform Stonebridge home, and that love for Uniform transferred to John’s …

Preparing Your Home For Vacation

The heat is on! June means school is soon coming to an end, and summer vacations are right around the corner. As a homeowner, responsibility calls and there are many things to consider before departing for a long weekend, a week or longer. WWUD (what would Uniform do)! Well, we’ve put together a list of items you might want to consider checking off your list before packing up the car and heading out on your next adventure. CHUCK IT. We recommend throwing away all the food that will expire while you're away. No one wants to come home to a smelly fridge or food that you can’t eat. Try not to leave the fridge completely empty though, keep some water jugs or canned drinks because a f…

 

Welcome Spring! Grab Your Home Maintenance Checklist

Take a deep breath of that fresh spring air because winter is behind us, and we’ve all got an extra “spring” in our step! As the ice and snow melts away, now is really the best time to do a full inspection on the exterior of your home for any damage that the winter weather may have caused. This is also a good time to get your warm weather units (i.e. your air conditioning unit, lawn mower and lawn care items) ready for summer. While you’re checking, and inspecting, don’t forget to test your interior smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors! In Canada, there are about 24,000 house fires each year. In fatal, preventable house fires, more than 1/3 of the homes didn’t have a wor…
