Design Your Perfect U.P. Home

Hiawatha Log Homes indoor staircase – make sure you save some room for it!

Munising, MIApril 28, 2015 – When you sit down to design your dream home, make sure you’re taking everything into account. With so many details to remember, it’s easy to lose track of the small things.

Your Most Important Features

It’s easy to get caught up in all the details, but make sure you keep your most important elements in focus. Do you want a large gallery? A massive fireplace? A grand view of the lake?

Pick one or two “must have” features of your new home and focus on those during the design process. Have you always wanted a tower room overlooking the lake where you can sit, relax, and maybe write the next Great American Novel? Focus on that and design your new home around it.

Make a beautiful stonework fireplace the centerpiece of your dream home.

Make Some Room

If you’re building a two-story home, you’ll have to account for stairs. Sometimes when making the initial design sketches, homeowners will forget to leave enough space for the stairs. Each and every staircase in your new home will require square footage—remember to leave enough space for handrails and landings.

Building codes also affect your home’s layout. Elements of stair geometry and the size of handrails ensure safety. In order to pass inspection, your home’s stairs must fit the building code.

Take your furniture into account when planning your new home - make sure everything will fit!

Keep Traffic Flowing

The flow of air, people, and pets affects the comfort of your home. Make sure you have plenty of space for stairs, but also keep your furniture in mind. Measure your dining room table, living room furniture, and beds.

If you want some extra counter space in your kitchen, consider leaving room for a center island. Little touches like plants and small end tables can make a big difference in the flow of a room.

Seating was at a premium at Red Rock Lanes in Ishpeming last night.

Seating was at a premium at Red Rock Lanes in Ishpeming last night.

The lines were long and the excitement was palpable outside of Red Rock Lanes & Banquet Center in Ishpeming.  Some people were just looking for a night out, others a nice meal courtesy of Mama Russo’s, but most people had their eyes on the prize:  A John Deere Zero-Turn Mower from Michigan Sales & Equipment of Marquette.  We here at Great Lakes Radio pride ourselves on how many people we can reach with any of our stations, but even we were surprised by the turn-out that we saw last night.  People from all over the U.P. flocked to Country Village from Escanaba, Champion, and even Engadine!  Another thing we pride ourselves on is being able to host a boss party.  Sure, we could just send out a few hundred “Sorry, but you lost e-mails” and tell whoever wins that they won, but that just wouldn’t be our style.

Despite people lining up as early as 4:30, we weren’t able to open the doors until a little after 6pm.  You fine people were able to mosey in, grab a drink or two, and even submit a guess to the BioLife Life-saver jar.  The jar contained 771 lifesavers hard candies, and the closest guess came from Tyler Machiela of Marquette with 765.  That’s pretty good in my book.  If you were on a nice health kick, after you signed up at BioLife you could head over to the Synergy Fitness table and partake in many of the deals that they were offering!  Once we had everybody seated, it was time for dinner!  With over 350 people present, the crew from Mama Russo’s had their work cut out for them.  They didn’t disappoint as there was enough left over for the Great Lakes Radio crew to go last and come back for seconds.

Good thing we did this at the beginning of the golfing season!

Good thing we did this at the beginning of the golfing season!

Once everybody was well fed and ready to find out who was going to go home with the coveted prize, we had to throw them a curve ball.  It was time for everybody who was fortunate enough to have an invite slip (some 150 people) to have a chance to earn one free game of bowling at Red Rocks Lanes by showing off their inner-Tiger Woods with a putting contest.  While there were plenty of wide misses, easy victories, and many a heartbreak, countless people walked away with a free game of bowling in their back pockets.

It was now time for the moment that everybody had been waiting for:  The Grand Prize drawing.  Just who would be walking away from the building with a John Deere Zero-Turn Mower in tow?  You could see people’s eyes lighting up as the first few digits of their tickets were called out, but only six people were fortunate enough to have every digit called out.  Once we had our “semi-finalists”, the time was nigh at hand.  Envelopes were opened, hearts were racing, and one lucky man came out on top:  Daniel Beltz of Marquette!  Standing in the middle of the pack, he went from passively opening his envelope to throwing a victorious fist into the air with a huge smile on his face.

We're just full of shenanigans...

Dan Beltz (Front Center) gets congratulated by a bunch of people full of shenanigans.

All this was possible due to our fabulous sponsors tonight:  SIR Federal Credit Union, Togo’s, Norway Springs, Carmike Cinemas, Pike Distributors & Labatt Blue, Globe Printing, and Hudson’s Classic Grill.  We here at Great Lakes Radio really enjoy reaching out to Yoopers everywhere over 200 miles of God’s country!  Thank you so much for all of your support and giving us the ability to provide you all with a wonderful night.

(ISHPEMING, MI) – 9/26/13 – Brenda Nault, Northern Michigan University Education Student who works at Bell Memorial Hospital, won the $6000 Nordic Retreat Hot Tub at the Giveaway Party at at the Country Village Banquet & Conference Center in Ishpeming Thursday night.
