Who wants some wine?

I'm almost done with the dream kitchen that I'm working on with Kaerek Homes in West Allis (it will be featured in this year's MBA Parade of Homes Tour). I'm a big time wino and I thought it might be neat to add a built in wine rack to go with this beautiful kitchen. What do you think? Does it run a big risk of making the kitchen too personalized if not anyone enjoys wine? Or will it add class and elegance and become a beautiful place to showcase some vintage wine or sparkling wine glasses? Please send me your suggestions - they have all been great suggestions so far and I can't wait for all of you to see the finished product during the MBA Parade of Homes Tour August 21st - September 12th.

I am also a wino so I'd love to have this in my home. I think it's a great selling feature. Only draw back I can see is people who do not drink wine would not be interested in this. I listen every AM and today was the first time I heard the word forclosures. I am also interested and have some questions as it would be my first time. I then decided to look at the website (should have done much earlier). I have learned some interesting info when you decide to rent yours out. 1)when you recieve your first months rent and deposit, do NOT hand over the keys until the check clears. 2) Do not hand over the keys until the utilites have also been turned on in their names. THEN give them the keys. A friend I work with her husband rents out homes. He felt he had a good renter. She is a RN with husband and children. The he gave them the keys after she wrote a first check to him for $1800.00. She moved in, check bounced.Utlities are not in her name and now they have to serve eviction notice which is expensive and time consuming. I thought you should know this.

Plant Some Animal Resistant Bulbs this Fall
Don't let flower hungry wildlife stop you from planting spring flowering bulbs. Plant a few animal resistant bulbs in your garden this fall for added color and beauty next spring. Start off the season with a few minor bulbs. Winter aconite and snowdrops are some of the first bulbs to appear in spring. Mix grape hyacinths with daffodils to double your flower power and pop in some Siberian squills for a bit of blue in the spring garden. Try little Tommies, botanically known as Crocus tomassinanus. Garden catalogues claim and I have found them to be resistant to squirrels. Daffodils are well known for surviving hungry animals and now there are lots of new varieties to choose from. And don't forget to try some alliums you may know as ornamental onions. There are small and large flowered varieties and those that bloom in spring, summer or fall. A bit more information: Consider Camassia with blue flower spikes that resemble hyacinth, but tolerate partial shade. Snowflakes (Leucojum) Autumn crocus (Clochicum), Fritillaria and of course hyacinths are a few other animal-resistant bulbs. Southern gardeners need to select low chill varieties or use precooled bulbs if their winters are too warm for forcing spring flowering bulbs into bloom.
