A family room addition is one of the best home additions you can make. As long as improvements are comparable to other homes in your neighborhood, you can count on a return up to 64 percent of the addition costs when you sell your home.  On average, a good size family room, 18 feet by 25 feet, can cost you as much as $85,000 depending on materials you choose. However, a family room addition will cost considerably less per square foot than an average kitchen, bathroom or laundry room addition since it doesn't typically include plumbing fixtures or large appliances. 

ALFA-1 Antibacterial Body Soap for Hubby #review

Well for today, I am going to share a review about something I don't personally use. Because this is a bathe essential used by my hubby. For mommies out there, who decides when it comes to your husband's bathe essentials? My husband doesn't care which brand to use when it comes to his bath soap. I don't know why but for him, all soaps are just the same with performance and all the benefits. I can buy him any brand of soap and he doesn't mind at all. Just last month, I had him try this ALFA-1 Antibacterial Body Soap. This whitening and antibacterial soap is specifically formulated for men to meet their daily needs. Most men are active which makes them sweat a lot and with the presence of bacteria produce unpleasant odor.
