Big Storm Brewing

Things to do in Cape Coral

 

Update: Big Blue Brewing is now Big Storm Brewing at same location.

 

Located in downtown Cape Coral, this brewery and restaurant Big Blue Baropened on October 1, 2016. Big Blue Brewing is located at 4721 SE 10th Pl and within walking distance of many downtown attractions.

 

Enjoy eating inside or out at this attractive eatery that was once a bingo hall and still sports the number board. Windows along the backside let you view into the brewing room while dining. Tours are available.Big Blue dining

 

Their small but exciting menu offers fish, burgers, steak, vegan, and more. I recommend the Pulled Pork Sandwich. The drink menu consists of several in-house brewed beers, some guest taps (plus a variety of bottled options), several wine selections, and specialty drinks featuring Wicked Dolphin rum. Big Blue Brewing

WHOLE HOUSE SOLAR ELECTRIC HOME FOR SALE

 

WHOLE HOUSE SOLAR ELECTRIC HOME FOR SALE

When buying or searching for a home with whole house solar electric, what are the questions you should be asking?


 Ask the homeowner:

1. How much do they pay for their electric bill each month?

2. What is the balance owed on the solar panels?

3. Is there a PACE or other type of loan or lease?

Aeriel photo showing solar panels at 2546 SW 30th St home for sale               Flyer explaining solar panels at 2546 SW 30th St home for sale


This home for sale in Cape Coral has 31 panels on the south facing side of the roof. This number of panels is sufficient to supply all of their electrical needs for the 1,840 sf home and their cars. The homeowners pay only the service fee required by LCEC which is $25 per month. Some homes don’t have enough panels installed so they are still paying $100+ per month to LCEC for electric, plus a payment for a loan or lease that may have to be transferred to the new owner at closing. This system was paid in full so there is no loan outstanding or lease associated with the system. When buying this home you will have 100% power through solar and no loan to pay off.

Watering Your Lawn in Cape Coral Florida

 

Watering Your Lawn in Cape Coral Florida

Cape Coral Watering Schedule

The city allows you to water your lawn twice per week based on a schedule determined by your house number. The times are scheduled in 4 hour slots between 8 PM and 8AM. Sprinklers should never be on during the daytime hours after 8AM. You are able to turn them on for a short time only for maintenance or repair. Any new lawns can be watered extra during the first 30 days but not during daytime hours. Watering during daylight hours leads to evaporation and burning of the grass.

If your lawn doesn't come with a sprinkler system you should have one added. Once you set up the automatic timing based on your schedule you can forget about it, UNTIL the time changes then you have to adjust it....but that's only twice a year. If you notice any brown spots on your lawn you may have a busted sprinkler head or one that isn't set correctly.

Code Compliance states that homeowners not watering per the schedule leads to the majority of code violations. Check out the Cape Coral Watering Schedule on their website.

Landscaping in SW Florida

Don't plant too much as everything grows so fast here! If you're not careful you'll be spending all of your time trimming, weeding, and carrying debris to the roadside. And don't get me started on seed pods...

No, seriously, we grow beautiful palm trees and tropical plants here which helps to make this area a paradise. A quick walk around your yard each day will keep it in check. Trimming or picking up palm fronds once a week the day before they get picked up is also a good idea.

Take care to keep bushes and trees trimmed away from your home to keep bugs and rodents at bay. You also don't want a large palm tree frond falling on your roof and damaging tiles or shingles.
