November 2007 | Issue 23

Editor's Message

When we brought home our 42-inch plasma widescreen TV last year, I imagined having to watch it from the kitchen two rooms away. After adjusting my vision and scores of crystal clear DVDs later, I am hooked on the new technology in televisions and home electronics. Even the HGTV decorating shows I drive my husband crazy with by watching all weekend look better. And while we are not really a sports-oriented household, my dad appreciated the picture quality while watching his beloved Bo Sox. So much so, in fact, that my mom was inspired to get him an even bigger TV of his own last Christmas. (He made a point of mentioning his was 48 inches versus our 42.)

If I had any question that size mattered to men, it was confirmed with a trip to this month’s cover shoot and our art director, Jon Pernul’s eyes upon seeing the 103-inch plasma flatscreen. Speaking of electronics, this issue is certainly packed for the technophile with our TV feature story, as well as pieces on home security and PCs versus Macs.

Of course we have three stunning show home profiles from California, NuVista, and Stepper, while we’ve also flowed in a community feature on Westmere Estates. And we profile Trico Homes, who’s not only busy crafting single- and multi-family homes while managing to rank among Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies, but the builder has also notched its fair share of charity work over the years.

In our regular It’s About Choices feature, we take a look at the role community plays in the quest for a new home. And to prove it can be easy being green, we focus on a new product that gives old tires a new direction—rubber roofing.

If you are looking for a new home, or even if you are fixing to give your not-so-new address a facelift or the gift of new furnishings, you have come to the right place. So kick back and enjoy the November issue of New Home Living, Calgary’s Number One lifestyle magazine.

Next month: Curl up with our fireplace feature and unwrap tips for holiday decorating.
