This weekend I had the privilege of celebrating the wonderful fathers in my life! My dad, my husband, my father in law, and my grandfather are all incredible examples for my sons. We are so blessed to have their examples in our lives. However you spent your weekend, I hope it was memorable!
1138 Eagle Rock Rd, Oakland, MD 21550
A One-Of-A-Kind, Unique, Beautiful and Captivating property situated between Oakland and the four-season resort area of Deep Creek Lake. This property is un-zoned and includes 3+ acres that border public hunting state land. This property is an excellent choice for commercial property, a Retreat Center, a Hunters Paradise or Deep Creek Lake Buyers... A major remodel in 1996 added 900 square feet of living space, a wood stove, and an upper-level loft with a treetop view. The main living area has a 365-degree view of the woods which surround the property and includes hardwood oak floors, a 5 person hot tub, and large Anderson windows. The kitchen remodel in 2015 included new stainless steel appliances, butcher block counter tops, and vintage cherry vinyl flooring. In 2015 an exterior 20 X 20 building was renovated into a music studio with air conditioning, double walled soundproofing, with a wood shop area in the front. Outside you're going to love the apple and pear trees, hardwoods, a large yard with two decks and a covered front porch to sit and enjoy the hummingbirds.
Tip of the week
CHILD & PET-PROOFING YOUR HOME
You've just finished spring cleaning, and summer is approaching quickly. Summer means longer days and later nights, and usually more traffic in your home. With play dates, game nights, and bonfires, there are likely to be more guests in and out of your home than usual. While fun is the priority, safety should be as well. To keep the little ones, children and pets included, safe in your home, follow these steps so you can enjoy a safe summer (as well as all the other seasons):
1. Protect your belongings
This has two benefits. If you have items that are important to you and could easily break, it is best to store them away so they don't get damaged and no one gets hurt from the broken item in the process.
2. Make off-limit areas
If you want to prevent children and pets from going places you don't want them, consider installing safety gates. Placing gates in front of staircases and rooms with more breakable items can prevent both children and pets from falling or accessing those items you don't want to injure crawling little ones.
3. Secure furniture
Sometimes when we get new furniture, we don't think those extra safety screws included to attach the furniture to the wall are necessary. Sadly, accidents involving falling furniture occur much too often because safety anchors are not installed. If you have any furniture that could be pulled down by a child, pick up anchors at your local hardware store. Dressers, televisions, and bookshelves are all items that can easily be pulled down from a child trying to climb onto them.
4. Use child-proof locks
Kitchens are filled with items that can become dangerous for both children and pets in an instant. Knives, spices, and cleaners can all stay safely out of the hands (and paws) of children and pets by installing child-proof locks on all the cabinets that need to stay off-limits.
5. Don't buy poisonous plants
The first step in avoiding poisonous plants is finding out which ones can be toxic to children and pets. While most plants are kid-friendly, many can be dangerous to pets, even those you wouldn't think could be, such as the Aloe plant.
6. Protect outlets and cords
While our lifestyles continue to become more wireless by the day, children and pets are still at risk in homes where items are plugged in. Ensure that your outlets are guarded and wires are hidden or blocked off. Not only can you prevent risk of shock, but you can also protect the items you have plugged in - like that television that you don't want to come crashing onto the floor!
