Packing for a Move

Welcome to my website. I’m hoping to provide you with some useful packing tips. My name is Ellen Monday. My family and I moved from a very large home to a large home. My point being, although we still live in a large house, we did downsize. It was almost like packing for two moves because we had belongings going to the new house and some going to storage. We had to make decisions about what we wanted to keep, store and get rid of. I have some tips on how we made those decisions, and the best ways we found to pack. Items that were going into storage were packed differently than those we were moving to the new house. Boxes had to be carefully and clearly marked so we didn’t end up storing our everyday dishes or something tragic like that! Hope you enjoy my blog.

Reasons To Choose A Cathedral-Style Patio Cover

Aaron Carroll

Installing a patio cover over the patio outside of your home can be an effective way to increase your livable space — even during inclement weather. If you've decided that you want to invest in a patio cover, it's a good idea to find a local service that can produce custom structures for homeowners. This way, you'll be able to choose not only the exact size of the cover that you need but also the materials from which it's made. In this process, you'll have an opportunity to look at different patio cover designs. One design is a cathedral-style cover, which has a peaked roof instead of a flat one. Here are some reasons to choose this design.

It Feels More Spacious

One thing that you'll likely appreciate about a cathedral-style patio cover is that it provides more of a feeling of spaciousness when you're beneath it. The peaked design of this structure means that it provides a lot of overhead space. When you and your family are sitting on your patio, you never want to feel as though the structure above you is too low. This could result in a cramped feeling that you'd likely find to be unappealing. A cathedral-style cover can feel so roomy that you might occasionally forget about the structure's presence.

It Can Complement Your Home

There's a good chance that the roof of your home is peaked instead of flat. When you choose a patio cover that has a cathedral-style roof, you may appreciate how the peaked design of this roof can complement the roof of your home. This will especially be important if you're choosing materials for the patio cover that tie in closely with your residence. In a sense, the patio cover may look like an extension of your home, which is a look that you'll favor.

It Allows For Better Airflow

Another reason to choose a cathedral-style design is that it will allow for a good amount of airflow. When you're seated beneath the patio cover, you want the air around you to flow easily. This is especially true if you're using a barbecue in this space, as you won't want the patio to get smoky. The height of a cathedral-style patio cover allows for a lot of airflow and makes your entertainment space feel like an extension of your home. It also helps keep sunlight and heat from entering your back patio.
