Renovating a home is undoubtedly a major project, so why do people do it? Why go through the expense and upheaval of redoing a home? Though it is a big job, a home remodel can be a great way to add real value to a home, improve the look and feel of the entire house, and enjoy the feeling of living in a “new” place, without having to give up all the advantages of the neighborhood you love being in. Planned well, a good remodel, which can include everything from an attic renovation to a master bedroom and spa bathroom build-out, can add real value to a home. All this can happen, without the upheaval and hassle of moving to a new place (which will always have a few problems of its own).

One of the obvious elements for keeping plants alive is light. However, plants are photosynthetic. This means they can convert virtually any light into energy. While many people use heat lamps to keep their vegetables growing, something like a fluorescent light source can work as well. As long as you can deliver the right amount of illumination, the plants can flourish.


One of the reasons why many indoor plants die off during the winter is because of the severely shifting temperature. If you can build an indoor garden that can sustain an ideal temperature, plants can survive even through the most violent of winters.
