Currently, we’re on phase 1 1/2 of our two part home renovation. Part 1 was to upgrade the master bedroom and bathroom and add a walk-in closet and more space. Part 2 will be to add a garage and two bedrooms and hopefully another bathroom on top of the two-car garage. Part 1 1/2 is a bonus – we’re getting a new ramp and deck and doubling the deck space. Oh, the possibilities! Honestly it’s what’s inside that matters the most, though. Our kids and pets.
When we bought our first house seven years ago, after years of renting various places in New Jersey, San Francisco, and even Massachusetts, Scarlet was two-years-old and I was six weeks pregnant with Des. It took some time to get used to living in the woods and away from people, but we have embraced our gorgeous nature landscape and we enjoy working on the home.
Protecting Your Home and What Matters Most to You:
There are a few reasons we made this decision. For one, we’ve been homeowners for seven years now and needed better security. We are planning the next renovation in the next year or so, and our garden is growing too. We have people coming and going quite a bit. Summer is coming fast and will bring some key opportunities for travel. There are so many reasons to explore these avenues! So much of life is out of our control, but there’s power in being able to add protection and security to our home and family. That’s why we got an Arlo Ultra 4K Home Security System.
Did you know that Arlo is America’s No. 1 internet-connected camera brand? Our security system is easy to install and cutting edge too! I don’t know about you, but when it comes to protecting my home, I want a security system that is simple, easy to set up and use, and reliable! I want it to keep an eye on my home when I can’t. Specifically, we’re trying to monitor our pets and kids. There’s a lot of activity in and out of the home every day and I like the peace of mind Arlo gives me.
We may move it while we’re still in the early stages of having this awesome product, but right now our living room is just the hub of everything so that’s why we put the camera there. We love being able to see extreme details – like people coming and going, as well as toys that Astro (the puppy) is chewing! I think that might be Des’ favorite aspect! My favorite is how good it is at protecting your home.
