Great Lakes Radio went to the 40th annual U.P. Builders Show this weekend, March 7-9. The Upper Peninsula Builders Association had a great turnout this year as over 120 businesses showcased their goods and services.

Information on everything from landscaping and construction to roofing and green forms of heating and energy was available. Many of the exhibitors had special deals and giveaways at their booths and the Builders Association held a raffle for a 24x24 Detached Wood Frame Garage or $10,000 cash.

Once again, the U.P. Builders Association brought the best in the business together under one roof!

Who doesn’t like a log cabin?  Now whether or not you’d like to vacation to one, live in one, or rent one is up to you, but there’s no pretending that you don’t find the log cabin to be awesome.  There’s just something about breathing in the scent of a nice piece of cedar.  It’s […]

Girl Scouts

Comments Off on Girl Scouts

Let’s be honest:  Girl Scout Cookies are, pardon my French, the bee’s knees.  Thin mints, Caramel Delights, Peanut Butter Patties, Lemonades….. excuse me whilst I go and gain ten pounds.  When I see them lining up supermarkets, hardware stores, and video rentals my mouth immediately begins to water. The thing that gets lost I think […]

Comments Off on Energy Pros Windows — Save Today, Conserve Tomorrow

Spoiler Alert!  The U.P. gets cold in the winter.  It also gets hot in the summer.  While that is the reason many people, myself included, live here, it is also very frustrating.  How are you supposed to prep your house to retain both heat & cool?  Being that I’m not a carpenter or anything of […]

D & J Sales and Service — Putting Service Back into the Sale

Comments Off on D & J Sales and Service — Putting Service Back into the Sale

Is there anything better than being at camp with the wood-stove going, while playing cards with some buddies?  Of course not.  Just dropping off of the grid, retreating to your own slice of life without any phones, t.v.’s, or distractions in general.  Having to put in some good old fashioned work to get your heat […]

Cabinet Concepts — First Class Service With a Personal Touch

Comments Off on Cabinet Concepts — First Class Service With a Personal Touch

Redecorating the kitchen can be a pain.  Small stores don’t have enough options, but the big stores don’t want to help you as much as you need.  Don’t get me wrong, the 1950’s were a wonderful time I’m sure.  Dwight Eisenhower, Sputnik, Greasers, and what-not, but I think it’s time I left behind the decorating […]

Dan Perkins Construction — Putting a Roof Over Your Head

Comments Off on Dan Perkins Construction — Putting a Roof Over Your Head

I just realized why the U.P. Builder’s Show takes place when it does.  It’s near the end of winter, but not after winter.  This leads to people who have already had some damage to their homes during the winter, but also leaves a few more weeks for winter to take that inevitable last strike on […]

Superior Polymer — Keeping the U.P. Warm

Comments Off on Superior Polymer — Keeping the U.P. Warm

Were you cold this winter?  Trick question.  Of course you were.  I particularly failed to enjoy this winter as much as years past.  The record-low temperatures managed to muddle my winter with record-high heating bills.  My house is a bit older, and in desperate need of an upgrade in the insulation category.  It wasn’t until […]

Associated Redi-Mix & Block – Concrete and Block

Spring will be here before you know it. You know what that means… mud! Lots of it. If you’re dreading the muddy walk from your car to the house, maybe it’s time to think about a concrete driveway or having some beautiful new pavers installed. You’ll increase the value of your home and you won’t […]
