5 Helpful Moving Tips

5 Helpful Moving Tips

Moving to a new home is an exciting time. The part that isn’t so exciting is the moving. Moving companies are expensive and you can save a lot by packing yourself. It’s a large task so where do you begin? Here are 5 helpful moving tips to help you along your journey.

What Goes With You?

1. Take a hard look at your possessions and determine what is important enough for you to move to a new home. This is a task you want to undertake well before your packing begins. Furnishings, clothing, knick-knacks, the old broken lamp you’ve had tucked in the closet – do you need to move all of it to your new home? If the lamp is valuable – get it fixed. But for the things that truly don’t matter, consider donating to your local thrift store, having a big yard sale, or selling things on the Facebook marketplace. You can earn some extra money to go toward your moving expenses.

Invest in Boxes

2. Use good clean boxes. Liquor stores have good clean boxes you can pick up rather than purchasing new boxes. But the only problem with them is they are generally small. Small is good when you have to pick them up. But too many small boxes represent multiple trips into your moving truck. And whether you’re packing up a truck or you’re hiring someone to pack one for you, small boxes mean more boxes. And more boxes mean more time. Ask for boxes on social media as you may have neighbors who have recently moved. Or, bite the bullet and purchase good boxes from a moving company like UHaul or at Home Depot or Lowes. Larger boxes hold a lot and similar sizes stack easier in your truck. Mark all boxes so you can place them in the right rooms when you move.

Professional Movers

3. Hire professional movers to pack your truck. You want to make the most efficient use of the space in your moving truck. Furthermore, you want all items to be secure so they do not shift while the truck is in motion. 

Pack for Your “Trip”

4. Have a suitcase with clean clothes that is easily accessible. Be sure to include clean towels and bath items. You’ll want to have a set of clean sheets easily accessible as well. The idea is to have everything you need to be able to bathe a sleep on your first night in your new home. Keep in mind that everything you own is in boxes and unpacking doesn’t happen overnight. Even if you end up sleeping on a mattress on the floor, at least you’ll have clean sheets. Putting together bed frames takes time and generally speaking, the move is tiring. 

Shelf Liners

5. If you’re a fan of using shelf paper in your kitchen and bathrooms, be sure to purchase it and have it on hand before your move. That way as movers are bringing your belongings into your new home, you can get your shelf paper cut and installed and be ready to set up your kitchen and bathrooms.

Movers charge from $80 to over $100 per hour for a two-person team. Unless you have a strong back and a group of great friends, hiring movers is a necessity worth paying for from packing your truck, to unloading it in your new location. Be sure to check local reviews to find reputable movers. A good crew will come with the right equipment to be able to expedite your job.

Outdoor Living for Tennessee Fall

Outdoor Living for Tennessee Fall

As the seasons change it’s a good time to consider outdoor living spaces for Tennessee’s fall months.

Outdoor Kitchens

Outdoor kitchens are more popular than ever. They’re a great place to cook and socialize simultaneously in an open-air space. Depending on your level of dedication to your culinary skills, your outdoor kitchen may include an oven, refrigerators, an island, and a seating area. Or, you can scale back and install an outdoor grill. Either way, cooking outside keeps unnecessary heat from competing with your air-conditioner on warm summer nights.

Fire Pits

Fire pits have become quite trendy with a variety of styles and sizes available at your local home improvement store or a with a click of the mouse on Amazon. Additionally, there are countless YouTube videos with instructions for building your fire pit. The ambiance of the fire makes for a great quiet evening or the centerpiece of a social gathering. 

Landscaping

Most new construction homes come with some landscaping. Creating a beautiful landscape around your home takes planning and time. When viewing your landscape, determine where you have full sun and partial sun, and plant appropriately. Determine where you want to have more shade and consider fast-growing trees with a canopy. Create islands within your yard with winding paths and water features. With vision, planning, and a willingness to work hard (or hire it out) you can create a desirable landscape that will enhance the curb appeal of your home, and its desirability.

Builder Reviews Maryville, Tn

Builder Reviews Maryville, Tn

We are happy to provide you with some real reviews from our real clients. At Debuty, we know that our client’s impression of our work is what matters most. Builder reviews in Maryville, Tn are a huge part of gaining community trust. Here is what our clients are saying about our work:

Roof Replacement Reviews

“Great experience with Adam, and the Team at Debuty Builders. We used them to replace our roof, and could not be happier with their work. Adam was wonderful, communicated frequently, and answered all of my questions regarding the process. The project was completed on time, and at exactly the price quoted. We will heartily recommend Debuty to our friends and associates.”

“After having a roof replacement several years ago the workmanship and quality of the job started showing and I contacted Debuty Builders for a second opinion. Adam came out and inspected the issues and repaired the weather damage quickly and reasonably. When the roof started having issues elsewhere it was time to replace and Debuty Builders came out and assisted us with an insurance company that would only pay for half of the job that their contract completed.

Adam and his crew had the supplies delivered and installed as promised, on time, and with better quality material! What a great company to work with and when we are in need in the future Debuty Builders is our first call! I continue to refer them to family and friends with complete confidence!”

Custom Home Review

“Adam and the crew at Debuty Builders are absolutely top-notch! If you want a professional, honest builder, look no further than Debuty Builders for your next building project. They built our custom home and we are thrilled with the work they did. We have even had people stop in our driveway and ask for our builder’s name on several different occasions. The entire process was easy and professional and the quality of their work is superior to other builders in our area. We are so happy with their work, we recently had them come back and build a brick retaining wall for a pool we are having installed, and Adam and his team will be building our pool house as well. We would not trust anyone else to handle our building and remodeling projects.”

Our Promise

We only work with the best materials available and provide a 1-year guarantee on all labor.

Preparing Blount County Homes for Fall

Preparing Blount County Homes for Fall

It would be amazing if all you needed to prep your home for fall was to hang a wreath and set out a bunch of pumpkins. While those are a crucial part of getting ready for the change of seasons, there are more important (and not exactly fun) preparations that come with being a homeowner. There may be some needed maintenance before your house transitions from hot summer days to cool fall nights – and eventually freezing temperatures. Consider these ideas to prepare your Blount County house for Fall 2022.

Clean, or possibly replace, your gutters. 

You’re so used to your gutters working properly — and draining thousands of gallons of water from your roof yearly — that you forget they could use a little TLC. If they’re clogged, you can end up with a flooded interior and a damaged exterior. So clean them, and if necessary, replace them.

Change your filters

Another thing in your house that may be costing you more money than it should be. If your filters are clogged, it’s harder to keep your home at the temperature you want it to be. This will increase your heating bills. Clean these filters monthly, not just before the fall, and thank me later. Note that disposable filters can be vacuumed once before replacing, and foam filters can be cleaned like a sponge.

Check for Drafts

Heat loss through windows is responsible for 25-30 percent of heating energy use, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. However, it doesn’t have to be that way, because weatherstripping is simple and probably the most cost-effective way to keep heating costs down. To check if you have a draft issue, close a door or window on a strip of paper. If the paper slides easily, you need to update your weatherstripping.

Remodel Or Build Home In Blount County?

Remodel Or Build Home In Blount County?

 

To address the age-old question of remodeling versus building new, there are a few things you should consider. When you remodel, you need to figure out if you need any building permits or how the additions will change your housing footprint.  You may also run into structural issues or budget-eating surprises.

With large remodels, it may just be better to build a custom-made house from scratch. However, the debate about remodeling or building a new custom home in Hamilton County cannot be based solely on construction costs.  There’s also the connection you have to your current home and how much you like your neighborhood.  Of course, if you love your lot and need a better housing fit, you could always go the demolish and rebuild route.

3 Things to Consider Before Remodeling 

Remodeling can be a big undertaking and one that can potentially upend your family.  The result hopefully comes out just as you envisioned, but there are some things before you pull the trigger that you should consider:

Does Your HOA or Historic District Allow For Extensive Home Improvements? 

Will Remodeling Dredge Up More Issues? 

How Inconvenienced Are You Willing To Be During A Remodel? 

 

What To Consider When Building a New Custom Home

Depending on how large you remodel, building a new home may seem more cost-effective. There are some common reasons why homeowners in Maryville or Alcoa may be reluctant to build a new home.  These reasons include:

Do you want to move to a different neighborhood? 

Do you have a close connection to your home?

 

What About A Custom-Build On Your Existing Lot?

One solution to the remodel versus building a custom home is to take down the old house and replace it with the new home on the same lot.  This way you will be able to rebuild with modern materials to your specifications without leaving your Blount County neighborhood.

The architectural design advantages of tearing down and rebuilding with a clean slate can be enormous.  With a custom house on your lot, you might be able to get some improvements not available during a remodel, like tall ceilings or a finished basement.  You can also change the wiring, plumbing, and heating from the ground up so it’s safer and more energy efficient.

Keep in mind that you will have to get building permits, but with a new build, you can get a builder like Debuty. We’ll be with you every step of the way so that your new custom build house will become yours forever home.

 

Debuty Builders Inc. is the Leading Custom Home Builder in Blount County

If you decide to build a new home in Blount County, Debuty is here for you. Our team of experts is ready to create your dream home in a timely manner and will guide you every step of the way. Call 865.233.7290 to contact our new home consultants, and we’ll discuss your custom home goals.

Maryville Tennessee Home Builder Review

Maryville Tennessee Home Builder Review

At Debuty, we know we can toot our own horn all day, but what matters is what our clients say about us. We invite you to read this Maryville Tennessee home builder review a former client posted on Google. We look forward to giving you this same care. 

“After being extremely disappointed with customer service from other contractors in Maryville that do Kitchen remodeling, I happened upon Debuty Builders Inc. I sent an email asking if they could help us with a kitchen remodel.  Within an hour, I had a response and an appointment for the next day. We sat down with Robby Waters and picked out a beautiful kitchen. That afternoon Robby had sent us a diagram. Quickly the next day he sent us the price estimate. The following day our cabinets are on order at HALF the price of the other two estimates I received from local contractors.

I cannot tell you how refreshing this experience was.  I had been feeling extreme frustration with other contractors and their lack of customer service and getting back with us! Robby is an amazing representative for Debuty Builders and went out of his way to ensure we were happy with everything. I HIGHLY recommend this business for any remodeling you may have to do!” 

 

We are so honored by our clients trusting us and continuing to spread the word about the work we are doing at Debuty Builders, Inc.  Additionally, our pleased client referrals are the greatest compliment and testament to our hard work.  We take seriously the opportunity to create and better your homes and spaces!  In other words, the team at Debuty can not wait to work with you!

2022 Design Trends

2022 Design Trends

Many design trends making a splash this year are inspired by decades past such as the 40s and 90s. Coupled with a modern approach, you can expect 2022’s homes to be zen and functional. Neutral shades predominate, but bold accents are making appearances. Irradesant hues and metallics – like mother of pearl and bronze – are often featured as well. The outdoors are being invited inside through widened door frames and accordion windows. Merging towards minimalism, cords are being hidden and TVs are being disguised within decor as portrait frames.

Black, White, and Beige

This year’s neutrals have a tiny splash of color in them. Trendy blacks have a touch of olive, and whites have a dash of brown. Past greys and other off-white hues make last year’s kitchens decidedly easier to adapt. This subtle tonal switch instantly brings warmth to a room making guests feel more welcome.

Wood

Scruffy wood has largely been rejected in this year’s design trends. In its place, natural, soft-toned woods have become popular, but they, too, aren’t as simple as they might seem. The trendiest exotics are treated to a barely-there white stain before being finished with a matte sheen. Birch-inspired wood is the exception and is being achieved with the help of distressed, unvarnished surfaces. In contrast, bold wooden wall treatments give art mid-century modern-inspired furniture an element of warmth.

Kitchen Features

Kitchen islands with subtly-shaded bodies are back, so you can haul out your paintbrush. Backsplashes are equally key in this year’s design trends. They’re wider than they’ve ever been, covering entire walls in metallic tiles and verticle patterns. Adding a bold backsplash to your kitchen is one home renovation that can greatly change the dynamic of your room without greatly hitting your bank account.

Open Bathrooms

This year’s bathrooms are inspired by Mediterranean environments. If your tub doesn’t make a statement, it’s time for an upgrade because it will form a key part of an expanded bathroom, which should be spacious and inviting. Homeowners are breaking into their hallways and closets to expand their bathroom footprints. They’re even creating an outdoor space for their destination bathtubs. Add an atrium roof and a garden to your interior bathroom to create a balance between indoors and out. For extra luxury, drying stations are being used instead of walk-in closets.

Not So Open Floor Plans

Open floor plans have been a part of design trends for years, but methods of handling them are constantly in flux. Post covid, building trends seem to reflect more private areas and nooks within a floor plan. Wooden slat room dividers are making an appearance as yet another way to artificially demarcate living spaces without removing the illusion of spaciousness.

Stone

While some stylish homes have been adding more wooden accents, others opt for a cool stone finish. Marble and granite are back on trend, with vintage rattan achieving a contrast. Add original terrazzo or soapstone and you’ll achieve a decidedly light and confident style.

Living Vintage

Painted wood furniture achieves an authentic look that can be enhanced by Mediterranean ceiling beams. Scruffy jute rugs add an unexpected, but thrilling, contrast. Foliage-dominated arrangements are adding a laid-back atmosphere. However, traditional fresh-cut florals are offering charm to design and are being seen more frequently.

What Does it Cost to Build a House?

What Does it Cost to Build a House?

 

 

Or what is your square foot price? These are questions I get asked almost daily, I personally don’t think that there is a fair answer. I love trucks; so, that’s the example I am going to use. What package do you want on it? XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, Limited.  It is based on what you are wanting and what you are willing to pay for. The same applies to your home.

 

Cost Ranges

These numbers are for example purposes .We can take them a 2000 sq foot house and build it as a “base” model  on a slab with builder grade items it may be around $180 a sq foot. ($360,000) Then, we can take the same home and add hardie siding, black some stone on the foundation, higher efficiency Heat/Air Unit, Real hardwood floors, and add elegant quartz tops with high end cabinets. Well that same home is now $225 per sq foot.($450,000).  Let’s add a basement, meaning higher foundation cost, more stone or brick to cover to exposed foundation, the same home is now at $248 per sq ft ($496,000).

 

Technical Factors

When it comes to your home, there are some items that will be decided by your land. We can do a slab foundation less than we can do a cost of a basement. But a unfinished basement will drive up your sq foot price. Because instead of spending 15k on a foundation you are spending 45k on a basement. If you decided to finish the basement it is more money now but it will lower the sq for price over all.  Some of the items items are do we have to clear the land, is the drive way 30’ or 200’ how long is the water line running? How is the soil? Can we do a conditional septic or is it on city sewer? All of this things will effect your per square foot price.

 

Final Quotes and Expectations

Its not fair for me to give you a square foot price and give you an unrealistic price on your biggest investment. The overall cost is within the details of what you want and any specifics of your property. Building your home should be a fun and enjoyable experience with realistic expectations.
