 Upper Millcreek hall bathroom remodeling jetted tub

Upper Millcreek Area Hall/Guest Bath 

This hall/guest bathroom remodeling has many custom features. Most prominent is the oval skirted LASCO whirlpool/soaking bath tub, custom jetted with an in-line pump heater, provided by Certain Kitchen and Bath. There is a Porcher pedestal sink and toilet provided by Ferguson Plumbing. The original 3’x3’ window was removed and replaced with this beautiful 3’x4.5’ bay vinyl custom window that provides a relaxing tub view of the Salt Lake Valley. For the vanity there is a Robern by Kohler recessed medicine cabinet with side lights and heated mirror from Il Bagno Studio. To provide more toilet room, the hall closet was reduced in size to become a linen closet. (See a plan drawing in the "See For Yourself" menu.) Price range for a similar project: $25,000 - $30,000.

03-20-10  Coolkeepers  Keeping your cool on a 100-degree summer day takes a lot of juice. It's when demand for electricity to run air conditioning spikes. That's why Rocky Mountain Power has promoted its Cool Keepers program. In exchange for allowing the power company to install a device that cuts electricity to air conditioners during peak consumption hours, the consumer gets an annual or pro-rated credit. The utility may turn the compressor off for as long as 15 minutes in each half hour between 2pm and 8pm weekdays from June 1 to August 31. Even when the compressor is off, the blower can continue to circulate residual cool air (especially from the basement). Go to http://www.coolkeeper.net/ for details and enroll.

    “With the resurgence of the housing market, consumers are spending more than $300 billion annually to upgrade their homes since nearly two-thirds of the nation’s homes are over 30 years old,” said Marvin Ellison, chairman and CEO of JCPenney, in a release.
