    What to Know Before Buying Property for Building a New Home
    Building a new home is exciting, as it gives people the opportunity to realize their dreams from scratch. However, in order to begin building, you must first find a piece of land to build on. When looking into property to start a new build, consider the following important points to ensure that your dream home ends up being the dream it should be. 
    Know How Adjacent Land is Zoned

    Although it is unlikely that you would ever find yourself in a situation where you are attempting to build on a lot that prohibits residential development (let’s hope), the zoning of adjacent land can go a long way toward impacting your future enjoyment of the property. For example, if you chose a lot on the outskirts of the suburbs for its proximity to the city while still providing a peaceful vibe, construction machinery showing up in the green fields ...

    Home Warranties Versus Homeowner’s Insurance: Why You May Want Both

    If you’re new to home buying or homeownership, you may be a little bit confused about the must-haves and the nice-to-haves in home protection. Home warranties and homeowner’s insurance come in several varieties. They share some common features, but they’re definitely not the same thing. Let’s look at some of the similarities and differences between these two products so you understand your responsibilities as a homeowner and choose the products that best suit your needs.

    What’s the Same?
    Both home warranties and homeowner’s insurance involve paying a monthly or annual premium for protection for a specific amount of time.

    The story behind Ten55 Brewing and its pandemic pivot

    Article originally posted on tucson.com on May 5th, 2021
    Chris Squires and his partner John Paul Vyborny are the co-owners of Ten55 Brewing Company at 110 E. Congress St. Their story over the past year is one of nothing but adversity. Their survival and reemerging growth is a great example of why they, and every other restaurant, need support as we begin to exit the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown.
    It actually became a business when, with a $600 brewers license, they opened a small brewery in a south side industrial site. It was just Squires and Vyborny for the first year, and they brewed and delivered beer in kegs to bars and restaurants around town. They also had a tasting bar on-site where they sold their beer.
    Squires and his family are longtime Tucsonans. At 17, Squires enlisted in the Marine Corps, and served for eight years. As with many young men, he had a liking for beer. After getting out of the Corps, he was searching for what was next. One aspect of Sqk ...
