Liberty Homes - A Perfected Craft

posted by My Saskatoon    |   February 27, 2018 16:10

As a home builder, your craft and your art are displayed permanently, for all the world to see (especially with Google maps). While the outward appearance is a significant indicator of what a potential purchaser will see inside, what you see when you walk through the door is still not a complete picture.

An often-overlooked part of purchasing or building a home, is the quality of what’s inside the walls – insulation, the electrical, plumbing, heating and any other unseen necessities. When you hear the cliché, “It’s what’s inside that counts,” it truly applies to your home!

Liberty Homes recognizes that what you don’t see is just as crucial to the process as what you do see. The groundwork, the foundation and the inner workings are fundamental to ensuring the proverbial “brick and mortar” will stand the test of time.  Without those initial stages being treated with utmost importance, problems are to be expected.

There are so many considerations to be made when you are thinking of building or renovating. Liberty Homes believes that their clients should be able to ask the hard questions – and are encouraged to do so – in order to have confidence in the build process.

What kinds of questions should you be asking? No question about your future home should be off limits. Ask what brands are used, for example. Do your own due diligence on that brand, be comfortable with those choices, and don’t feel bad about it. Your home is one of the most important investments you will make in your life, and you will be creating many of your life’s memories there, so you want it to be done right the first time.

When the keys are turned over after a build is complete, you then become the owner of a work of art that has taken months for Liberty Homes to create from the inside out, something they don’t take lightly. From the first step to the last, they have perfected their craft.

Nail Gallery and Spa - Feel Transformed and Pampered

posted by My Saskatoon    |   February 27, 2018 12:00

Have you ever anticipated a day at the spa, looking forward to the serenity and escape promised in the ads, only to arrive and promptly slump with disappointment at a noisy, uninviting, poorly represented “spa”? It is precisely why The Nail Gallery and Spa takes care to provide an environment suitable for the peace so many are seeking in a mini getaway!

When you are booking a service, it is not only appropriate but welcomed, to let the receptionist know you are hopeful for a quiet few moments away from your hectic schedule. You are investing your time and money into being pampered so it is essential to express what is important to you when planning your time at the spa.

There are certain things to know about The Nail Gallery & Spa. Their philosophy is that unless you feel transformed and pampered, they’ve missed their mark. Consider the following to ensure you enjoy an exceptional experience while at the spa:

  • Don’t be shy – tell them it’s your first time at the spa.
  • No question should be left unanswered. Ask, ask, ask!
  • Not all nail salons or spas are created equal. Feel free to discuss etiquette, treatment description, tipping, cancellation policies, etc. It’s always easier and more comfortable knowing what to expect.
  • Ask for a tour if you’ve never been to their spa, ensure you’re comfortable with the surroundings.
  • Being early for your appointment is to your benefit and will allow for changing / locker time ahead of your scheduled time, so that it is not being consumed with those details.

If you’ve ever felt uncomfortable expressing your needs or asking questions, just remember that it is your hard-earned cash you are departing with, and you are trading that cash for an experience, good or bad. And The Nail Gallery and Spa most definitely wants your encounter to be memorable for all the right reasons.

Liberty Homes' Goal: Create an Environment You Can Call “Home”

posted by My Saskatoon    |   December 6, 2017 13:17

While Liberty Homes builds houses, their ultimate goal is to create an environment you can call “home”. As far they see it, attention to detail is clearly important, as is getting it right. However, at the end of the day, what they truly want is for you to look forward to being at home, to entertaining guests, to creating a strong family life – whatever that looks like for you. If that is your experience, then they’ve truly done their job.

Having been married for over 25 years, and having four children, they’ve encountered the good, the bad, and definitely the ugly! In their early years, they lived in a home that had health-impacting mould. Their concern for their children went unheard, and they were forced into an unwanted, untimely move. That taught them one of those ‘what not to do’ lessons.

They often reflect on some of those less-than-ideal incidents as they serve the City of Saskatoon’s home building industry and have used them as catalysts to ensure you, the home owner, won’t be faced with similar circumstances. That is a large part of why they have intentionally chosen to build fewer homes and to spend more time on the quality of each Liberty Built Home. If it’s done right during the building process, not only are you a happy customer, but less upkeep and maintenance will allow you to enjoy your home hassle-free for years to come.

They welcome the opportunity to spend time with you, to find out your priorities, your fears and your expectations, so they can provide you with an experience that is a cut above the crowd. Connect with them here to learn more about their process or to set up a time to review your questions and desires in pursuing a new home purchase.

Nail Gallery and Spa - Happiness is the Highest State of Well-Being

posted by My Saskatoon    |   December 4, 2017 23:15

Happiness is the highest state of well-being, according to The Nail Gallery’s philosophy. The thought process behind that belief is multi-fold. It’s not simply about getting pampered or having a massage.

Following are a few reasons why your happiness means so much to The Nail Gallery & Spa:

  1. Stress can cause a diminished immune system. If you think about it, by not looking after yourself you can easily get sick or worn out, and that can start a vicious cycle and/or downward spiral.
  2. Time spent on looking after yourself fills you up. That quote, “You can’t pour from an empty cup,” rings true, doesn’t it?
  3. We are unique individuals and as such, we all have a different way of feeling loved, happy or relaxed. In an industry that can be seen as frivolous, it’s essential to understand that we are as individual in our need for self-care as we are in our choice of say, our career. One way we can learn what makes another feel loved – or happy – is through The 5 Love Languages. It is a great tool to discover more about you or your partner, or about your friend, your Mom, or even a co-worker. And just maybe you’ll find out who would truly appreciate a trip to The Nail Gallery & Spa!

So often we are distracted and busy and we tend to put off things that may appear selfish. Self-care is far more vital than we have previously placed a priority on. You can’t give what you do not have, and that’s a significant part of why your well-being is just as crucial to The Nail Gallery, as is a great set of nails!
