Developments in the field of energy, together with the demand for pleasant indoor environments, have resulted in ever-greater significance having to be attached to both the function of a building's thermal insulation and air tightness and the efficiency of its heating and ventilation systems.Defective insulation and tightness in highly insulated and airtight structures can have a great impact on energy losses.

Blaine Haven continues to move toward becoming Blaine's Hottest New Construction Community. So, I was out at the site last week and things are progressing along.  We've received preliminary information on the lot sizes and layouts.  Many lots will be able to feature a Walk-Out lower level.  Once pricing is finalized, we will be sending this information to all of you who have registered on the barkerhedges website as VIP Blaine Haven members.  You can still register at www.barkerhedges.com.  For those who have asked, yes there will be a Rambler option along with the 2-Story plans.  We hope to have final prices soon!  Hope everyone had a great Fall weekend.Dena

Homeowners in the new Blaine Haven community will be within walking distance to Madison Elementary School.  Madison Elementary is Kindergarten through grade 5.   The school is just down the street from the new Blaine Haven development!   I've included a link (see links section) to the school so you can get a better idea of what the school has to offer.      Madison Elementary is located on Territorial between Jackson & Jefferson (on 10 acres).  Blaine Haven is closest to the Jackson side.  There is a large sports field area (see below) between Jackson & the school. Students attending Madison Elementary would go to Northdale Middle School and then onto Blaine High School.  There are also private schools available for the area, which I'd be happy to provide more information on if anyone n...

The Blaine Haven Sign is up!  Look for it at the intersection of Jackson St. & Territorial Rd.  Intersection pictured above - not the actual sign!  Informational brochures will be coming soon!  Thanks to those who have already signed up on our website to become a VIP member of the community.  This will give you access to pre-grand opening pricing and information.  You can still sign up by going to www.barkerhedges.com and accessing the Blaine Haven page.

I was out at the new Blaine Haven site today.   I've attached some pictures below.  The roads are going in!  There is plenty of action to see.   Neighbors out  for a walk with their kids were watching all the big trucks as they moved dirt around making the soon to be new roads!  It was fun to watch.    Here's the new entrance - located off Jackson Street NE.

Here in the Minneapolis and Saint Paul area of Minnesota we, along with may other people in the Midwest United States, get to experience quite a few thunderstorms each year during the summer months. Mild thunderstorms bring with them rain, a few cracks of thunder, and some fanfare in the form of thunder and lightning. Further up the proverbial sleeve of Mother Nature are those thunderstorms that have a distinct ability to take things up a notch and go from mild to wild. If a mild thunderstorm is like a violin soloist performing in front of a small crowd then these thunderstorms can be likened to a full symphony in accompaniment with our violin soloist complete with the full percussion section of lightning and thunder. To what simple phrase then do we use to describe these magnificent st...
