EVstudio participated in Milender White’s golf charity event at Fox Hollow Golf Club.  We are happy to be a part of a charity that raised over $30,000 for various children charities.  Unfortunately, our team of Greg Arbour with KLG, Carl Boone and Justin Boone with CandL Development and Jim Houlette with EVstudio came in last place and earned the ‘OOPS’ prize.  But we had a great time and we look forward to next year!

Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver offers a service for those renovating a home.  They have specialized volunteers who will go to your site to pick up anything that can be salvaged and sold at Habitat’s Home Improvement Outlet.  Almost everything can be re-used from cabinets, appliances, hot water heaters, light fixtures, toilets, and bathtubs to doors, carpet, thermostats, and fireplace inserts.

Not only will you be helping the environment, but you will be saving money by reducing demolition costs and you will also receive a tax donation receipt.

Habitat typically offers this service on Saturdays, however they can work around your schedule depending on the size and scope of the project.  Visit Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver for a more complete list of accepted items.

August 5, 2009

EVstudio has produced a course on what real estate brokers need to understand about the new Denver Zoning Code and form based codes in general. It has been approved by the State of Colorado for one hour of continuing education (CE).

Upon completion of the course, the real estate broker will:

  • Understand how a form based code differs from traditional zoning
  • Know the latest on the time line for adoption of the code
  • Be familiar with the seven neighborhood types
  • Understand the new naming conventions
  • Be familiar with the building forms
  • Understand the likely impacts and strategies for property owners

If you are buying or selling real estate in Denver, you should understand how the building code is changing, and you might as well get the hour of CE. Over the next few weeks we’ll be working with Realtor associations and real estate offices on offering this seminar to their members. We’ll also have a session put on by EVstudio.

For more information contact Sean by email or phone at 303.322.4964.

Confused By the New Denver Zoning Code, Give EVstudio a Call, We’ll Walk You Through the Implications for Your Property – Free

July 5, 2009

If you own property in Denver, you need to understand what the new zoning code may mean for your property. Even if you have no immediate desire to renovate, add onto or scrape your property; you’ll still be affected by the new code which will rezone the majority of property in the City.

For some properties it will actually open up new possibilities and for others it will eliminate some options. At this point, the City hasn’t been able to confirm if there will be a grace period for using the old code, so timing is important. The code is still in a comment phase, so now is the time.

Please give us a call or drop us an email and we’ll take a look at your property under both the new and old code.

Many of our clients have asked about getting more information on the new Denver Zoning Code. The city has set up a website to explain the changes and how the process is moving forward.

It is important for anyone with property in Denver to evaluate how the new code will affect your property. It took 53 years to get this update, so its the right time to have your input heard. The draft code is supposed to be on the site by the end of the month and I’ll plan to give you more information when it is available.
