When the contractor initially told us that our new house would be move-in-ready in about 3 months from when we bought it, you could imagine just how excited we are to finally move in—18 months later.

Noise and Sleep Satisfaction

Having trouble drifting off to dreamland? Your sleep environment might be too quiet. Seriously! Studies have shown that perfect silence keeps some people from falling asleep and getting a truly restful snooze. Turns out, some background noise might actually be beneficial.  While a fire truck rolling down the street or the bar next door blaring music might not be the recipe for a peaceful slumber, ambient sounds might soothe you right to sleep.
