Cool Off On Scottsdale Real Estate

Taste Flavorful Ice Cream in Scottsdale HomesWith the sun shining brightly on Scottsdale real estate ice cream surely hits the spot. No one builds a better sweet treat than Fatty Daddy’s located at 1608 N. Miller Road. Dedicated to providing a high quality product only locally sourced ingredients are used.

Flavors are classic and creative. Those preferring the basic blends will love to see chocolate, strawberry and vanilla bean on the menu. More daring ice cream connoisseurs will relish froot loops, green tea, getting figgy with it, cherry pistachio and cinnamon toast crunch.

Cookie cups are fan favorites and widely raved about by Scottsdale real estate residents. Two macarons border scoops of rich ice cream and are topped with a lightly toasted marshmallow. A mini cookie cup is also available for those wanting only a mini indulgence. Macaron flavors vary weekly and may include coconut, red-velvet and lemon-strawberry.

Cones piled high and thick shakes round out the Fatty Daddy’s menu. With so many flavors to choose from it may be hard to make a decision. But not to worry, friendly staff members are more than willing to offer a sample or two to make the selection process easier. When Scottsdale living gets too hot to handle cool off at Fatty Daddy’s.

Building the Perfect Home Theater

Do Your Research: Just going out and buying a bunch of components is a quick way to spend a lot of cash on the wrong parts. First you need a plan. It’s better to have all the room dimensions planned out to reference when comparing equipment.

Once you’ve taken measurements, shop to match available, quality equipment with your desires for your custom system. This will require quite a bit of testing, trying out different brands, and then matching them up with components to see the full effect. A top-notch component store can help you. If your friends have entertainment systems of their own, this is a good way to try out various brands for free.

If you are unfamiliar with how equipment systems work and are connected, hire an audio and visual expert. Even if you’re not purchasing yet, knowledge about how systems work, get installed, and connect to each other is invaluable. You can hire technicians to do the manual install. Let the experts worry about the connections.

Installation: The area where the home theater will be installed needs to be cleared of all furniture, shelves, hangings, and other materials that will get in the way. In some cases, installation may require access above the ceiling or behind walls. This will involve drilling and opening cavities to complete the equipment installation. All hardware should be anticipated before getting started. This avoids repeat trips to the hardware store in the middle of the process. If you hire an installer, sit back and relax!

You’ve done you home work and hired a professional. Now Enjoy!
