Florida’s Coastal Cities Rebuild

ft-peirce-floridaIn 2004, hurricanes Charley, Frances, Ivan, and Jeanne ravaged many of Florida’s coastal cities. These hurricanes destroyed houses, cities, and took the lives of many. The devastation and lives lost will never be forgotten. Some cities have struggled to get back on their feet, while others have be able to use this as an opportunity to build new, more durable infrastructure.

Since 2004 Fort Pierce real estate has been working to rebuild and update it’s infrastructure. The Sunshine City has built a new state of the art dock system. This new system is the first in the state to be named Eco-friendly. It has a state of the art Storm Protection System and improved yacht navigation. The dock includes all amenities one would have at home such as, WiFi, laundry facilities, showers, and a bar.

The marina is centrally located and is only a short walk to shopping, restaurants, theaters, and museums. It is also only a short distance to the Bahamas, making this dock a perfect location to store and launch your boat. The Fort Pierce inlet was recently named the “Best all weather inlet on the East Coast”. The inlet and surrounding Indian River Lagoon area provide easy access to snorkeling, fishing, day-long trips.

The hurricanes in 2004 cost cities and families millions of dollars and worse, claimed the lives of many. The damage is extensive enough to still be seen and felt today. Fort Pierce is leading the way with new technology and safer systems. The marina’s new docks were opened on the first of May and featured 127 new slips and an island system to protect them.

Latest Captivating Bathroom Trends

The bathroom is an important place in any home, and it has to be designed comfortably. Especially when renovation works are done, bathrooms will be the main area where people concentrate. Hence, here are some tips that will help in designing the bathroom in a better way. The main components in the bathroom are the tubs, basins, and vanities, so it is essential to choose them properly. Many people due to its soft edges and curvy finish prefer dual vanity basins. Apart from the structure, it is essential to be careful about the colors chosen as they will decide the look of the bathroom.

When the sink and the bathtub are designed in a similar fashion, it will be very attractive. Classic curvy contours are a popular choice. A main point to be noted is that the bathtub should not join the wall. Next comes the tile selection, which is not child’s play. The fluid and curvy types are a very good choice, as it will give an impressive look to the place. The tap ware has to be chosen carefully as it will be the water source of the room.

Multi-Generational Housing Trends

The numbers of people who are buying multi-generational houses are increasing day by day. The main reason stated by the multi-generation house buyers for their decision is they want to take care of their old parents for which this type of house is appropriate. Many adults and children are moving back to such neighborhoods these days. In fact, the multi-generational housing is the real estate trend in recent days. This trend is increasing in the past few years, and the prime reason is the increasing rate of recession.

Due to the recession time, many people lost their jobs, and this led to severe financial crisis for them. The increase in financial crisis and the unemployment problems led people to come back to home rather than staying in different places for various employment reasons. Apart from the previous houses of this type, many construction companies have started to build new houses of the same variety as the demand is increasing by the day. Many people are not interested in the houses that have three bedrooms and two bathrooms in these days. Hence, there is a very good market for the multigenerational houses among the large American population.
