About Demesne

Information for the Way you Live Today

Do you have questions about how to remodel your home, get a home equity loan, or purchase insurance? As homeowners, we seem to have an ever expanding need for more knowledge about a wide range of topics related to maintenance, improvements, buying and selling, and insuring our homes as well as moving our household goods. It´s particularly problematic because what applied five years ago may no longer hold. So what´s a body to do?

Demesne is an information-only website dedicated to collecting information about topics that concern homeowners. Our goal is to demystify what it takes to maintain and improve our personal space and protect it the best way possible. We present real information based on experience and research in a clear, simple format without flashing gizmos, banner advertising, or popups.

Of course, Demesne has hosting and administrative expenses. We do our best to keep our costs low and offer our articles free to anyone interested. We make money through Google ads and our Amazon store, so if you want to contribute to Demense's ongoing commitment to good information, freely available, buy your books through Amazon using our Bookstore Link.

If you have ideas, questions, or want to contribute an article, send us an email.
