New Year, New Look

Camelot Homes |

Remodeling has never been easy (just ask anyone who has ever lived through it), but what better time to think about it than after the holidays. If you’re like most of us, by the time your tree is dragged out to the curb, it already feels as though you’ve added an additional 500 sq. feet […]

What Goes Around, Comes Around

Camelot Homes |

It’s so disheartening when something you remember wearing as though it was yesterday, is currently considered “retro.” Very similar to the way it feels when you realize that the songs from your youth can easily be found on the “oldies” station.
