Because there are 2 apartments, he has tried to save money whenever he can by purchasing "seconds" or other building materials that aren't quite as nice as what you would typically buy for a house. Nate has been able to find a variety of good deals at Grossman's Bargain Outlet in Westfield, MA and Chicopee, MA. A good example is the counter top in both of the kitchens. It is laminate, but it is good quality and it looks really nice. It has held up extremely well in the time that we have lived here and I think it is durable enough to last for quite some time. We have also been able to pick up some good deals on paint, lighting and tiles there too.
