Sequim Hot Air Balloon Festival coming to a field near Legacy Homes! Labor Day Weekend September 2012

February 22nd, 2012 by Darcy Lamb


Exciting news to share. Steve and I were contacted today about assisting with the newest Sequim festival coming to our growing valley… First Annual Hot Air Balloon Festival. This high-flying event is going to be located right outside our back door. We are hoping to help host a hospitality suite or simply help facilitate emergency access to the field. Stop by and say hi… we’d be happy to answer any of your questions about Sequim and if you are moving here, we can help you with that too! Steve and I are native Sequimites and very knowledgeable about the Sequim area.

Here are the first two tips for “Why Sequim?”:

Hot air balloons flying over Sequim lavendar fields on the Olympic Peninsula of Western Washington

Flying high over Sequim Lavendar

1. The Weather: Sequim is in the “Rain Shadow” of the Olympic Mountains. It receives less rain than most of California – 17″ a year, less than half of what Seattle receives.

2. The Wind & Rain on 9/1-2-3: Researching the wind on September 1, 2 & 3 for the last 31 years, out of those 93 days it has only rained twice and had wind over 10 mph twice during the morning times when balloons fly. So the odds are GREAT that balloons will fly.

If you’d like to know more about what is happening during the Hot Air Balloon Festival . . . visit their website at www.sequimballoonfestival.com . I don’t think you will be disappointed.

Sequim Garage Fire – Insurance claim – Remodeled and returned to new condition. Piece of Cake!

February 1st, 2012 by Darcy Lamb

Nothing like waking up to your garage on fire. Whoa! Close call with a client of ours. Luckily only a bit of smoke damage in her utility room. The fire door saved her home.
Steve was able to remove all of the burned debris and replace a few posts, drywall, workbench, windows, etc. Now it looks like new! We worked well with the insurance adjuster and the project was completed in only a couple of months. With the help of a couple of our experienced sub-contractors, Discovery Bay Electric and Tru-Flow Plumbing the project was a success. The outcome, nice remodel, no sign of the fire and a very happy client. Need a reference? Need a contractor? Need a free quote or consultation? Give Steve Lamb a jingle. 360-460-5335.
