December 2006 | Issue 12

Rub-a-dub-dub. It’s fun in a tub. Especially in one of today’s new, high-tech hot tubs, which have everything from mood lighting and waterfalls to pop-up TVs and speakers.

Join us for our feature story as we tour several Calgary stores and discover not all spa tubs are created equal.

It’s About Choices … runs every month, providing helpful advice on everything from fixtures to flooring, wall coverings to window treatments. It’s About Choices… is focused on the decisions, options and upgrades that are part of the new home building process. This month we tackle how to choose a bank or mortgage agent and a lawyer.

New Home Living is proud to be a media leader when it comes to putting the spotlight on specific new communities and home builders. This month we profile two really nice new satellite communities; Country Estates in Okotoks and Monterra at Cochrane Lakes. Our Builder Profile pages feature Jayman MasterBuilt, while a new segment entitled ‘Giving Back’ looks at some of the many ways home builders are actively involved in the communities they build.

You won’t want to miss our regular show home tour section this month as we tour a couple of truly spectacular designer dwellings. Note the Calbridge home featured is not an actual on-site feature home at the Hamptons. The Astoria home, on the other hand, is just one of a handful of beautiful show homes that make the short drive to Monterra well worth it. Not to mention a quick stop in at MacKay’s for an ice cream.

Regular departments such as the seasonally-correct Gadgets & Gizmos photo pages, Designer’s Choice floor plan focus, Anita Tighe’s Decorating column, and my very own Around Town, can all be found in their usual place in the magazine.
