Best Island to Live on:

EMERALD ISLE, NORTH CAROLINA

Although there are about a million reasons why living in Emerald Isle, NC is the best,
this article from Islands.com points out a few of those.

1. The Cost of Island Life.  Unlike remote islands, it takes a 15 minute car ride to get off the island
and to more affordable groceries, gas, and shopping.

2. On-the-beach Homes.  The costs of beach homes is way less here on Emerald Isle then if you went to a
highly developed beach resort area such as the Florida Keys or Maui.

3. How a Day Starts. “Just as you find on distant islands, people go to bed early on Emerald Isle.
The best part of the day is sunrise. By 6 a.m., a handful of people are on the beach with a coffee
cup in one hand and a dog leash in the other.”

4. The Weekend: Plenty of room on the beach for everyone to enjoy.

5. Way Out of Touch: Our island is not overly developed, their are no chain restaurants,
fast food drive thru, or massive hotels to block the views.

Emerald Isle is a terrific place to live or to come and visit.  Things are low key and time moves slow on Emerald Isle

If you have never been to Emerald Isle before, I seriously suggest you add it to your bucket list!

Home Maintenance Tips: Keeping Moisture at Bay

 

Moisture is your home’s No. 1 enemy.

“Water can destroy the integrity of your foundation, roof, walls, and floors — your home’s entire structure. So a leaky gutter isn’t just annoying; it’s compromising your foundation.”

Follow This Easy 4-Step Routine

1.  When it rains, pay close attention to areas of your home to make sure the water is draining as need to be.

2.  When the rain stops, do a inspection of areas in your home for any damage or leaks such as your roof, siding, foundation, windows, doors, ceilings, and basement.

3.  “Use daylight savings days or the spring and fall equinox to remind you to check and test water-related appliances like your washer, refrigerator, water heater, HVAC (condensation in your HVAC can cause leaks) or swamp cooler, and sump pump. It’s also a great time to do regular maintenance on them. Inspect any outdoor spigots and watering systems for leaks, too.”

4.  Make sure you repair any issues ASAP as those issues can turn into MAJOR problems down the road.

“Don’t procrastinate when you spot minor leaks or drips inside your house. Ongoing small leaks can slowly erode pipes and fixtures, and even cause mold and mildew issues you won’t notice until it’s too late.”
