Ho’opili by D.R. Horton – Development of  Ho’opili in Kapolei has begun and will bring over 11,000 homes to West Oahu. This large master planned community will help alleviate some of Oahu’s pent up demand for housing and possibly make things easier for first time homebuyers and new families on the leeward side.

Real estate developer, D.R Horton purchased 1600 acres of the former ‘Ewa sugarcane land’ in March 2006. In May 2015, D.R. Horton Schuler Division’s Ho’opili won the final approval from the Honolulu City Council. This new project is slated to create over 11,000 homes on 1,554 acres over next 20-30 years. It will include 200 acres of agricultural land, ample space for personal gardens and community farms, parks, open spaces and schools and commercial space for businesses creating thousands of new jobs. With new businesses and education options within the community, residents will be able to reduce their commuting time as well. Nearly 80 percent of community will be connected to public transit via the two planned Honolulu rail stops, expanded bus service and new leeward bicycle paths.

The project will be located between five West Oahu communities: Kapolei, Makakilo, Kunia, Waipahu and Ewa plain. It is the largest development project before the Honolulu City Council in at least two decades.

5 Steps for Spring Cleaning

5 Steps for Spring Cleaning

Spring has finally arrived and with the new season also comes the time to clean out our cluttered living areas. For many people, spring cleaning can be a difficult task which requires organizing and deciding what belongings you can be without. This article will provide with a basic 5 step process which you may use as a reference in order to help clean out your home so you can live a cleaner and clutter free lifestyle.

STEP 1: Take one room at a time:
Depending on the severity of how many items have accumulated over the winter months, some people may find cleaning their homes more difficult than others. Particularly when living in a single family homes with multiple bedrooms.

In this case, similar to handling any other difficult task, you must organize yourself, and divide the work load over a period of time. Start with one room and do not go to the next until that room has been completely clean.

STEP 2: Organize your things first
Sometimes the most difficult obstacle to cleaning a home is the prospect of having to throw everything away. Of course, for many people important valuables may be lost in the clutter. Some valuables may be of monetary value while others may be of sentimental value.

In order to best handle the foreboding task of having to clear out the clutter, take time to go through the clutter and decide honestly, what is important to keep and what is simply wasted space.

Once you have separated the good from the bad (or the wanted items from the junk), find an appropriate place for those important possessions. One of the true tests of deciding whether or not an item truly has value to you is deciding where to store it once you have found it. This means that you cannot simply throw all of your valuables into a generic drawer. Everything must have a designated spot.

STEP 3: Remove the junk!
Now it is time for the stress relieving part of this process. Gather multiple garbage bags and simply dispose of all the items you have labeled as a non-valuables. This will “clear” the way for you in order to facilitate the final steps of the spring cleaning process.

For some people, the amount of clutter or extra belongings may be too troublesome or dangerous to remove. In this case, the best option is to contact a junk removal specialist (you are welcome to contact for referral sources). A junk removal specialist may be hired for a fee, to remove clutter that some people may not be able to handle.

STEP 4: The wipe down!

Now that all clutter has been removed, you are free to start eliminating germs! This is the time where you vacuum or bleach your floors, dust the surfaces, and wipe down tops with disinfectants. Keep in mind, that many cleaning supplies do contain harmful chemicals and should be handled with care. Also, when cleaning, be careful when lifting heavy objects so that you do not injure yourself.

STEP 5: Air it out!
Once you have completed step four, open the windows, and use any kind of air circulation system that you have to clear out any remaining bits of dust and cleaning chemicals. Depending on the age of your current air conditioning system, a replacement may help more efficiently filter out allergens. With the new fresh air, your home will smell like new!

A Word of Caution:
Whenever possible, always hire a professional to complete the more specialized tasks. Spring cleaning can be an exciting activity. It is often easy forget that safety should always be a top priority. It is important to remember that many homes carry harmful and/or deadly chemicals or devices (e.g., asbestos, lead based paint, electrical panels, etc.). When approaching these elements, it is best to hire a specialist who can either directly handle or remove the subject of concern.
