A Modern Mediterranean That Epitomizes Miami Beach Luxury

  • June 18, 2023

In classic Miami Beach style, this luxe house has water and city views, palm trees planted all around the property and a modern, neutral palette inside.

Dubbed La Joya, this six-bedroom, six-bathroom house at 2901 Flamingo Drive in Miami Beach, Florida—once asking $15.5 million, and now sold—features a first floor with a great room with 20-foot ceilings and large windows, and an all-white kitchen with an attached dining room.

The waterfront home features a casita for guests or parties

The kitchen has top-of-the-line appliances, lots of marble throughout, and a classic chandelier that serves as a nod to more traditional style in an otherwise modern room. It also has dual sinks, floor-to-ceiling cabinets, a built-in TV screen and a floor-to-ceiling wine cooler that’s accessible via a library ladder.

The home’s interiors are neutral, with lots of grays and whites and stone floors. Surrounding palm trees add pops of colors from the windows. The modern furniture, all staged by Meridith Baer Home, was all available for sale, for under $300,000.

The backyard features a pool and overlooks 300 feet of waterfront.

There’s also a separate casita on the property with its own private entrance, views of the waterway, a kitchenette with a mini fridge and living space, and a bedroom suite

Chula Vista father receives free $100,000 home remodel from Rebuilding Together San Diego

  • April 28, 2023

Wheelchair bound, Tom Lukasiewitz, was taking showers in his front yard until Rebuilding Together San Diego came to his rescue.

CHULA VISTA, Calif. — A small San Diego non-profit organization that offers free home remodels is looking for more community support. In this Zevely Zone, this is part two of my two-part series on Rebuilding Together San Diego. 

Nine years ago, Tom Lukasiewitz a longtime Chula Vista contractor, was perplexed by what was happening to his body. “All of a sudden I just started feeling weaker, things just didn’t add up and all of a sudden I just was falling out of the blue, my leg would give, and I’d say what’s going on?” said Tom who is 51 years old.

Neurologists diagnosed Tom with a rare disease called Inclusion Body Myositis. “All of my muscles deteriorated. I got weaker and weaker and weaker. I went from walking with a cane, to a walker, and now permanently into a wheelchair,” said Tom.  

As a contractor, Tom was always willing to help a neighbor which is why Rebuilding Together San Diego rolled up their sleeves on his birthday. “Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you,” sang a group of volunteers at his home. 

“You can’t not love this guy, he is so positive,” said project manager Deanne Hutchison from Rebuilding Together San Diego. As if Tom had not gone through enough, Deanne told us his home also caught on fire. “The community came together like nobody’s business and Tom’s life has been completely turned around,” said Deanne.

Walls had to be fixed, but why stop there? Volunteers painted his house, poured a new patio, put on a new roof and relandscaped too. 

Eric McCormick and Sigel Candia from DPR Contruction were just two of the magic makers. “This guy

British couple discovers historic paintings during home renovation | Good News

  • April 23, 2023

A couple in England is stunned by what they found behind their apartment walls while renovating their home.

You never know what you’re going to find in your own home, especially if it’s older. In this case, the couple‘s apartment is in a very old building, dating back to 1747.

Luke Budworth and Hazel Mooney live in England in a town called Yorkshire, and they were having new kitchen cabinets installed when their contractors called to tell them they found a painting behind the kitchen wall.

By the time they got home, the new cabinets were already put up so they couldn’t really see the painting anymore, but they were curious and figured there might be more paintings.

Luke got out a tool and started chipping away at the paneling in his living room and his intuition was right. He saw beautiful colors behind the wall. It was another mural.

They have a series of frescoes in their apartment. Fresco is painting directly onto wet plaster, so the mural becomes an integral part of the wall.

They contacted Historic England, which is an organization that preserves history, and they believe the art is more than 400 years old, from the 1660s, and predates the building. They think the building was actually built around the mural.

Preservation of the art is really expensive and tedious work so they are hoping in sharing the story that they will be able to raise funds for its conservation, and that maybe some researchers or students will be interested in doing the conservation work.

They are keeping the murals covered in the meantime, to keep them protected from direct sunlight. Historic England made replicas of the murals for the couple, so they have those up on the walls and they are enjoying

Frazier’s has over 20 styles of bird baths that let’s homeowners decorate their yards while also providing a rest stop for their neighborhood birds. Not only that, they come in many colors and sizes. You can even get a customized paint job or an engraving of something special.

“I am excited to announce we’re making it even more affordable to continue to refresh your home – both inside and out. Starting today, we have permanently lowered prices on thousands of items across our store and online. These price drops are possible due to the relentless efforts of our teams to find cost savings throughout our supply chain,” says Chairman and CEO Lee Bird. “Last year we had extraordinary cost increases in our supply chain, which led to us raising prices – which we were reluctant to do. We committed to ourselves that we would drop prices as soon as we could. We can now, and we just have.”

“As we see inflation continue to impact our customer from the gas pump to the grocery store, it is more important than ever we pass our savings to the customer. Passing on these supply chain cost savings will provide customers more purchasing power for the home items they desire,” says Chad Stauffer, President and Chief Merchandising and Product Officer. “Great value is important to our customer and critical to ensuring the entire economy stays healthy by enabling more customers to buy. We stay committed to décor for all, all for less. We will continue to evaluate our
