Welcome to your Snowy November 2014 Update!

From Tina & Tania...

The 2nd Annual Pumpkin Carving Contest was a hit with 16 entries!  1st place & 2nd place are on the top row, and we had a 3 way tie for 3rd (bottom row)  :)                 

Market Stuff:  It will be interesting to see how the year wraps up in terms of prices in the marketplace.  The price increase this year was forecast to be around 4.3%, however it rose as high as 10.48% in the summer - that's a HUGE year over year gain!

Calgary set to allow wood buildings to reach six storeys

"City planners hope to bring on more mid-rise condo projects at lower prices by announcing rules Wednesday to permit six-storey buildings with wood frames.

It’s a move the building industry expects to shave 10 per cent off development costs, to make going slightly taller more affordable in some areas.

If developers have wanted to build above four floors, long-standing building codes have declared concrete or steel the only safe and structurally sound options. But with the national code about to change and some provinces already allowing wood mid-rises, Calgary will begin accepting permits for five- or six-storey buildings with the cheaper and more environmentally friendly material."

This is super interesting for Calgary's condo market!  Very excited to see how many builders will incorporate this - my guess is most of them.  :)

Fall Decorating Tips

- Introduce hints of a new colour to a neutral palate, like red or orange, with throw pillows, cozy blankets or even candles.
- Use wood for decoration. Small branches can be made into interesting arrangements or a natural photo holder.
- Pumpkins and gourds come in so many colours and sizes and can be used in any space.
- Choose pieces you can use throughout the holidays. Pine cones, dried berries and twigs will stay up-to-date through the winter.
