How are you spending your 2015 Thanksgiving? If you are not so sure on what to do, I may have a few Sublime recommendations! Here is a step by step, “tentative itinerary” for your 2015 Thanksgiving. Shall we?
Thanks. Food. Family & Friends. Football. Relax
"Thanks" giving: Let’s not forget that tis’ the season to be grateful. Although, I personally believe that we should always be grateful, regardless of the time of the year. I once heard these so very powerful words and it always resonates in my mind.
“Be thankful for what you have, for what you don’t have and what was taken away from you”. –Anonymous
I have learned to appreciate each one as it shows up in life as well as to be grateful for each one (even when it is hard to take in). So let’s take this special day to celebrate our many fortunes and give thanks!
Food: Cooking Thanksgiving Dinner! Ohh the struggles,… Not having enough space in the refrigerator for all those wonderful meals to store before and after, having to wait hours before you throw in dessert in the oven, etc. etc. Will everything be cooked on time?
Sublime Homes has that covered! Check out the all fridge and freezer, the double oven, and the cook top (to name a few, everything that you need to simplify your Thanksgiving adventure!). Check out this Sublime kitchen!
Cooktop: The professionally inspired 36” Stainless Steel Gas Cooktop has continuous grates which makes it a breeze for all the Thanksgiving chefs to move the heavy pots and pans between burners. Not to mention that the low simmer will be perfect to make the gravy for its main attraction, aka Da Bird! Or you know, unless you opt to make something else (like tamales, as my mother would) then there is more than enough room to place that pot and others.
Double Wall Oven: Did we mention that you can bake double the deliciousness with the double equal sized and equal cooking performances. It will permit the power and speed to cook the meals at different temperatures and get those meals to the dinner table as scheduled.
Fridge: You will have plenty of room for leftovers in your Professional Stainless Steel All Refrigerator. This machine is designed for space optimization including SpacePro™ Door Bins, SpacePro™ Crisper Bins, SpacePro™ Full-Width Drawer. And, most importantly those leftovers will taste fresh after the feast with the PureAir Ultra® Filtration system. Which removes up to 7 times more odor than baking soda to keep ingredients tasting fresh.
Fully Integrated Dishwasher: So the cooking is all done, everyone has had their delicious feast. Oh the dreaded cleaning afterwards!! No worries,.. This heavy duty Bosch dishwasher features a removable silverware basket which can be placed anywhere in the dishwasher, which will add space for even those big turkey platters.
At the end of the day, the goal is to end with a wonderful bird like this one and to enjoy it with Friends and Family!
Football: 2015’s Thanksgiving NFL Schedule. After all that hard work cooking and eating that delicious meal, it'll be great to just sit back, relax and watch some football!
Have I mentioned the last game? Chicago Bears vs. Green Bay Packers!!!
Fingers crossed that all Bears fan’s do not end up like this,……
(If so, I guess there is always next year, right?)
Sublime Team: First off, the Sublime team wants everyone to know that we are truly grateful for every single one of you!
Secondly, how will the Sublime team spend 2015 Thanksgiving? The team will be spending some time with friends and family as well as some other activities to enjoy the day. Some teammates may go for the double-duty feastravaganza: lunch with hers and dinner with his (or vice versa). One may do a little duck hunting (can you guess which one?). I on the other hand, will be spending my Thanksgiving evening at the O’Hare airport having an Al’s Beef Italian Sandwich (and who knows, maybe a cold one too) and getting mentally prepared for a long flight. This gal is off to a European vacation,… stay tuned for the next blog and read all about it.
Again, Sublime wishes everyone a very happy and safe Thanksgiving!!!
Let’s be honest with ourselves,… Who wants a squeaky floor? Yes! No one does and Sublime Homes does everything in order to avoid squeaky floors today and for tomorrow.
So there is the assumption that squeaky floors only happen to older homes. Not necessarily!
Ok let’s say that your builder followed minimum code requirements on the subfloor. That sounds great right? Well before you go on and celebrate, give that new home some time and soon enough it will entertain you and your family with that desired squeaky sound. Of course it may be beneficial if you would like to use is at a security system, there would be no sneaking in or out of that home!
A recap to Sublime’s November Newsletter)
A recap to the Sublime Homes November Newsletter (apologies to our readers, as the image was distorted when sent). Proper installation of the subfloor is key! Following are the steps Sublime Homes followed in order to enforce quality subfloors in which will prevent future issues, such as squeaky floors.
1. Bostik adhesive is placed on top of the 2” x 12” prior to the AdvanTech plywood sheet is placed above. The cross bridging is spaced an inch apart to avoid friction, which would help avoid any future sounds.
2. After the precise engagement of the tongue and groove profile of AdvanTech plywood, the plywood will be enforced methodically with nails. We ensure that those nails do indeed make it to the lumber underneath, as we want to ensure that those nails are holding down the subfloor.
3. Although nails are placed to ensure that the subfloor is being held down, screws were then added to secure that with time the subfloor does not become loose with movement.
Not only did Sublime follow all the above steps in order to provide quality subfloors, but it was also using AdvanTech Engineered Plywood (the real deal when it comes to plywood). The qualities that this plywood sheet offers are as follows:

As Sublime Homes continues to keep up with the new products that offer long lasting benefits to their product, some of the above info has been replaced by today’s top technology. Going forward Sublime Homes will substitute the nails and screws with “Paslode tetraGRIP”, drives like a nail, holds like a screw! Paslode tetraGRIP will contribute to halt any potential to squeaky floors. Check out this video to see all the great benefits of this remarkable product that your Sublime home will have!
