Oregon CCB Issues Buyer Beware about Predatory Contractors
On the ListOne Contractor owes the CCB $100,000 for working as a bricklayer without a license and failing to do any of the work he was hired to do. A husband and wife team made the list for performing substandard flooring installs without a license. The most accurate way to check the status of an Oregon contractor is by using contractor numbers through the CCB website. Contractors can also be searched by all or part of their business name or their last name.
Warning Signs of a Bad ContractorConsumers should beware of any contractor who:
- Asks for more than 15% of the job cost up front
- Won't sign a contract
- Fails to return calls
- Doesn't follow contract guidelines
- Hires subpar subcontractors
How to Deal with a Bad ContractorConsumers who are having issues contacting their contractor should begin documenting their attempts in case there is a need to take the contractor to court. The police, licensing bureau, and Better Business Bureau should be contacted about any stolen goods, money, or beneath code work.
Maintaining an Oregon LicenseOregon contractors must renew their licenses every two years by obtaining state required continuing education and completing a renewal process through the state.

New Jersey’s Historic Homes and Growing Real Estate Market
New Jersey's Famous Historic HomesNew Jersey is home to some of the oldest and most beautiful houses in America. Since this area was one of the first to be settled, houses span the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. The Nothnagle Log Home is the oldest log cabin in the United States and the oldest building in New Jersey. The cabin is privately owned and open to scheduled tours. The Walt Whitman House is a modest wood home built in 1848 and former home of famous author Walt Whitman. Homes like these and the more ornate Glenmont and Sandy Hook Lighthouse attract both tourists and potential home buyers alike.
|Sandy Hook Lighthouse was built in 1764. It is 253 years old today. The lighthouse was built after ship wrecks cost a New York company over 2000 pounds. The home and lighthouse were given historic monument status in 1964, on its 200th birthday.||
New Jersey's Historic Home MarketWhile none of these homes are available for purchase there is a flourishing historic home market in New Jersey. Areas such as South Orange are known for their historic homes and ranked among New Jersey's hottest markets. Historic homes generally sell at high costs compared to similar modern homes which is especially important in New Jersey where home prices have increased 17% statewide since last year. The New Jersey real estate market is predicted to continue rising in the foreseeable future. Agents will need to complete 12 hours of continuing education and renew their licenses by April 30th to take advantage of the growing market.

LED lights are used to trace drone paths and obstacles DAVID T KINDLERImagine zipping through the air at 60 miles per hour, avoiding obstacles, using only your thumbs to steer. Drone racing is an exciting new sport with leagues popping up all over the nation. Pilots make their own drones and wear First Person View (FPV) goggles which give them a drone’s eye view of the race. Drone racing is gaining prevalence across the board but it is especially popular among individuals with disabilities that prohibit other forms of racing. Zoe Stumbagh, a former motorcycle racer, has taken up drone racing since a medical issue forced her into bed rest for two years. She describes the experience as “… almost spiritual because you’re seeing something you physically can’t do, and that elevates your consciousness.” For now, most leagues are small and regional but the Drones Sports Association and Drone Racing League want to go professional. Interest in the sport is increasing, ESPN recently signed a deal with the Drone Racing League (DRL) and Bud Light has signed on as the title sponsor for DRL tryouts. However, drone officials are having a hard time determining how to make drone racing a spectator sport. Pilots are standing stock-still in their goggles and drones are little more than large buzzing flies to spectators. Leagues are currently experimenting with LED light decorations for drones and obstacles to give the viewer a better idea of what’s happening. ESPN will be airing 6 races of the 2017 Allianz World Championship in June.

Ambitious Architecture in Detroit
(Courtesy SHoP)Detroit may finally be having its renaissance. Buildings and empty lots are being transformed all over the city; some are restored to their former glory, while others are demolished to make room for new builds and community gardens. The city has seen an influx of new restaurants and housing. All of which are clear signs of growth. Detroit’s current economic upswing combined with a plethora of affordable space is allowing Detroit real estate agency, Bedrock, to begin work transforming a two-acre lot in downtown Detroit. New York architecture firm SHoP Associates and Detroit-based architecture firm Hamilton Anderson Associates have designed a 2-acre building with 1.2 million square feet of space. The site will include 250 residential units, more than 700 underground parking spaces, a conference hall, retail space, and a tech/arts/ cultural center. The building will be nine stories at the base with a 734-foot residential tower, making it the tallest in the Detroit.
(Courtesy Bedrock)The site was once home to one of Detroit’s largest retailers, J.L. Hudson’s Department Store. At over two million square feet, it was the anchor of the thriving Woodward avenue shopping corridor. The store closed in 1983 and the building was imploded in 1998. Since then the lot has been vacant. Bedrock believes the new project will bring even more commerce and vitality to downtown Detroit than J.L. Hudson’s.
