hello hello hello hey peeps how’s everybody doing i’m doing okay are you okay i’m good i’m doing great as well this is diane randall bro that’s us he’s randall i’m diane just in case you got confused yeah we get confused too sometimes sometimes yeah absolutely we’ve been together so long my god i know but anyway blend after a while yeah but anyway we’re here to talk to you today about what it’s like to live here in prescott when you hear these terms single level living if you’re looking for a single story versus single story so we’re going to do a quick little tutorial on that yes so if you’re coming from another area you’ll understand a little more about what that means i mean the short short of it is people don’t like stairs right so we have a lot of people coming in i don’t want stairs i want a single story house and we have single story houses here we do uh but if you go for a single story home it kind of cuts off your options we have some other options that’s right uh if you’re going to build a single-story house you pretty much need flat land completely flat yes completely flat and like which we do have we have some areas like we have but if you’re also looking for a lot of trees and views and terrain sometimes when you go with flat land you don’t get those things here and so one of the things we wanted to explain is what a stem wall construction home looks like and what uh single level living looks like that’s right so i’m going to intersperse some uh some video here where we took an example and we’ll kind of so you can understand here’s a quick example of a stemwall house looks like a single story house from the front here but as we creep around the side you can see that this house is actually on the edge of a cliff and on the other side of the cliff underneath this first level there’s a second level that is the stem wall section and the uh space down there is generally reserved for guests so here’s a shot of the whole house well we’ll explain to people coming in i understand you want a single story but single level living will also fit the bill because a lot of times if we’re built onto the side of a hill you have to build out onto a stem wall to to have that happen so you come in and you’ll be on one level it looks like a single story and you’re like well that’s exactly what i wanted and so you come in and single level living here is your master maybe another bedroom and a couple of bathrooms your kitchen your den everything’s on one floor which is great which is exactly what you’re looking for however you can go downstairs where that stem wall has been built out and there’s a whole nother level where maybe you’ll have two more bedrooms in attendance yes just for your guests so even though you come in and you want a single story don’t get thrown by single level living yeah because for a lot of people it’s what they need uh they don’t really use the square footage that they have for their guests so this way they can be downstairs you don’t even have to look at that space and it’s zones so you don’t have to you’ll have dual ac exactly you’re not doing this you’re not yeah you’re not acing and heating the whole shebang you have the option just to ac and heat that top level where you’re mostly living yeah and then when your kids come in you can throw them downstairs never see them again well you know you don’t want to make it too good because you do want them to go home but that’s right that’s right but turn off the heat turn off the gold and that might do the trick i don’t know yeah a lot of people come in there like i said i just want single story but you don’t really necessarily are going to be able to find that in the house you exactly want don’t let those stairs so they’re like i don’t want stairs yeah but those stairs would not be a part of your everyday life that’s really just your guest stairs and what’s nice too about about the single level living versus single story is a lot of times out the back of the stem wall construction homes they have decks and that’s where you really get nice views so if you’re looking for magnificent views of of trees or mountains check out some some single level living homes because you might find those fit the bill you’re right decks are great decks are awesome and a lot of times you have a deck upstairs and then you still have a lower level patio yeah which is you know one of the perks of stem wall you know construction stem wall construction so don’t necessarily rule out stairs that go downstairs because you’ll still be living on that main level but you’ll get the perks of the deck yeah and the views yeah so that’s just a little tutorial what is single level living versus a single story yeah i think we did a good job yeah i think so anyway call us if you have any questions further we’d love to take you out and show you exactly what we’re talking about yeah we’ll put some if you do a tour with us we’ll give you a couple examples you’ll see exactly what we’re talking about just keep an open mind at this point absolutely don’t scream and say no stop staring back you might be surprised yeah absolutely absolutely all

decided to talk to you today about the winters here in prescott yep which as you can see by the blue sky is very oppressive yeah and pretty scary i can’t get some surroundings here pretty scary january is the coldest coldest month we have and uh here we’re on uh martin luther king day that’s right enjoying some time out on the patio outside the prescott lakes country club which is lovely by the way and behind us you can see some of the water traps here at prescott lakes it’s beautiful beautiful beautiful country club here we really love we lit we live here and we love it and we encourage anybody coming in we’d love to take you around and show you all about prescott lakes and what it’s about but most importantly we want to talk to you about the weather because we’ve had a number of inquiries yes oh my it’s god cold i can’t do the winters i can’t actually you can and you will love them i am from the deep south you cannot get any hotter and milder than that no no and uh we love winter here it’s brisk it’s beautiful um and you can see we’re suffering we’re really suffering here we thought about being naked for this because it’s not good no not me yeah but we yeah yeah it wouldn’t be a good yeah it wouldn’t be a good thing but what’s nice about winter here is uh at nighttime it might get in the 20s or low 30s and you’re like oh that’s too much that’s true but you’re snug as a bug in your nice warm house then you wake up to this beautiful sunshine yeah and then in your bed you’re in your mind by cold you’re in your back that’s right who cares why you’re sleeping how cold it gets but when you wake up in the morning uh by 11 o’clock it’s up to the 40s by noon it’s up to the 50s and it’s just beautiful sunshine yeah uh mild mild today yeah last night was the lunar eclipse so i was out on the back porch checking out the blood moon and all that stuff and i know it’s been as late as 10 o’clock and it was still you know it was fine so yeah don’t let that don’t don’t let that scare you i’ve also had questions about the snow we might have snow three at the most four times during the winter season january is our coldest month we’ve had two little snowfalls this month but the snow plows come in we’ve got all the infrastructure and take care of that yeah you’re not snowbound this isn’t the blizzards in new york city and and buffalo most of the snows last like hours you know so it’ll snow overnight and so you wake up and it’s beautiful winter wonderland blah blah blah and then usually before dinner it’s mostly gone absolutely it gets up to in the 50s every day so so you get like the best of both worlds excuse me my hair’s flying all over the place that’s a winter gust coming through so devastating gust so you get to enjoy the beautiful white snow there’s no yellow snow here no if you know what i mean yeah it’s gone all melts away it all melts away there’s no snow drifts that sit there for weeks and weeks and weeks and become dirty with the grime and you know new year’s eve we had a crazy a crazy storm uh you know it really affected a lot of the surrounding areas we got six inches which is a lot first very unusual yes you know by by new year’s eve night you know uh the plows had done their than their work and the roads were all accessible uh the next day the big milk starts you know i think actually the next day was still uh still kind of cold but i mean by like friday you know within a few days it’s pretty much gone you know don’t let the cold don’t let the cold scare you out it’s wonderful it’s it’s really nothing to speak of plus we have hardly any humidity so this is a dry cold yeah it’s not that damp rainy where it gets into your bones and yeah absolutely not this is absolutely dry dry cold and low humidity so you hardly really need a coat so you know you get to dress like perry como and put on turtlenecks and i’m wearing this which i would never be able to wear back in texas but i sure do appreciate it
