Get your gutters ready for winter!

said on September 18th, 2018 filed under: Alta Sierra, Auburn, Colfax, Country Property, Grass Valley, Lake of the Pines, Lake Wildwood, Localism, Whimsy

Get your gutters ready for winter!!

The first day of Fall is this Saturday and we can already feel it! With the temperature dropping its means its only a matter of time before it is our rainy season. Are your gutters ready for it? If you answer is not automatically yes, then maybe it’s the perfect time to show your gutters some love. A small amount of maintenance now can make all the difference, and most likely save you bundles!

Sagging and clogged gutters can overflow, causing damage to the soffit and fascia on the eaves of your home. To prevent this from happening, it’s important to keep gutters clean and properly maintained.

To maintain your gutters:

  • Clean Gutters: Check gutters regularly to make sure they are clean, and remove any leaves or other debris.
  • Secure Gutters: To repair sagging or loose gutters, replace the gutter spikes with gutter screws, using a cordless drill. Gutter screws hold much better than standard gutter spikes, providing support and security.
  • Seal Leaks: Use a hose to check the joints and seams for leaks. To repair a leaking joint, clean the area thoroughly and apply silicone caulk to seal it.
  • Repair Downspouts: Make sure that downspouts are clear of leaves and other debris, and that any joints fit together properly.
  • Water Runoff: Check to see that the water coming out of downspouts is diverted away from your home using splash blocks, a downspout extension, or irrigation pipe.

The more you can do before the rains come, the better! Its not fun for anyone, including your bank account, to have to make emergency repairs in the middle of winter. Celebrate the first day of Fall this weekend by giving a little TLC to your home!

said on August 17th, 2018 filed under: Alta Sierra, Auburn, Colfax, Fun Things to Do Outdoors, Gardening, Grass Valley, Lake of the Pines, Lake Wildwood, Localism, Nevada City, Whimsy

Strawberries & Chantilly Cream Recipe

Don’t know what to do with all the strawberries that are in season right now? Try this whipped cream recipe! It is by far the best whipped cream recipe we have ever tasted! It will pair great with some fresh strawberries from your local farmers market, or any fruit that may be in season. We serve this treat to Realtors at our Open Houses from time to time and it is always a big hit! The natural strawberry flavor & the Chantilly cream is so delicious together.

 

Strawberries & Chantilly Cream

What you will need:

1 lb fresh strawberries, hulled

2 tbsp. granulated sugar

3/4 cup heavy cream

1/3 cup powdered sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

3 tbsp strawberry-flavored popping candy (such as Pop Rocks)

 

How to make it:

 

  1. Cut smaller strawberries in half lengthwise; cut larger strawberries into quarters lengthwise. Toss together strawberries and granulated sugar in medium bowl until coated. Cover & refrigerate for 1 hour or up to 8 hours.

 

  1. Beat cream, powdered sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form, about 30 seconds to 1 minute.

 

  1. Divide strawberries with accumulated juices evenly among 6 bowls. Top each bowl with a large dollop of whipped cream. Sprinkle bowls evenly with candy. Serve immediately.

 

Serves: 6

Active time: 10 minutes

Total time: 1 hour, 10 minutes
