Living in Colorado

The popularity of tiny homes has risen in recent years, and it seems they are more popular in Colorado than any other state.

“Colorado is the hub for the tiny house movement,” said Art Laubach, director of the Colorado Tiny House Association. Laubach founded the organization, which began in March, to advocate for the development of tiny homes.

Colorado is at or near the top for number of builders compared to other states, according to Laubach, and it is one of the leading states for tiny home living.

The state has over 20 builders who are constructing more than one tiny home unit at a time, and over 40 companies that have built at least one tiny home. On tiny home websites, other states with a growing number of manufacturers include Oregon,

With metro-Denver housing inventory at its highest level since October 2013 and interest rates still low, now is a good time for homebuyers. On the flip side, with home prices peaking now is also a good time for home sellers; making for a more balanced market.

Housing inventory is up 28 percent year to date from 2018. The first half of this year ended with the most active listings, at 9,520 at the end of June, since October of 2013 which was at 9,734.

For perspective, the record-high June for active listings was in 2006 with 31,900, and the record-low was in 2015 with 6,197 listings.

We all know how important bees are to our gardens. Here's how you can help them out, according to 9news.

You can build a pollinator-friendly water feature in just five minutes, for under $5.

Simply providing a traditional bird bath won’t work for bees and butterflies. Small pollinators can’t balance on the steep edges and reach the surface of the water to take a sip. They need a safe, non-slippery spot from which they can reach the water easily and then fly off. They don’t need a large pool of water—a small “watering hole” will do.

Making a bee waterer

To make your bee watering spot, start with a wide, shallow dish like a platter or pie plate. Don’t use a deep container; pollinators are tiny. An inch or so of water is plenty deep

You live in and love your home, but there might come a time when you have to leave it.

And when that time comes, you’ll want to get as much money as you can for your property so you can move onward — and upward.

In order to increase your abode’s value, you might think you have to put in a ton of time, effort and money, but that’s not entirely true. Instead, you can take on weekend projects over time to spruce the place up so when it’s time to sell, you have a completely updated property that’ll end up selling itself.

Ready to get to work? Roll up your sleeves and start on one of the following five weekend projects.

1. Repaint Your Kitchen Cabinets
