The City of Golden has a history much like many other Colorado communities.  It was first established during the Pike’s Peak Gold Rush of 1859 as a mining camp but now is a posh metro/mountain community.  Golden runs along Clear Creek at the far edge of the foothills and sits among several picturesque mesas. Most known for the Coor’s Brewery which has been around since 1873, Golden is a popular destination for locals and tourists.  If you are ever in the area be sure to check out downtown Golden, here you will find several fantastic restaurants and a bunch of shops.  Below are few of my favorite places to grab a bite to eat and beer in Downtown Golden Colorado!

When we look at the Altos Research stats for market activity in Golden, CO we are seeing a strong uptick in activity starting in January.  It is not quite at the level of Louisville, CO which we looked at two weeks ago but is definitely moving towards a balanced market.  Usually a Market Activity number between 20 and 30 indicates a balanced market.  We do need to keep in mind we are looking at Solds and as a result it is somewhat like driving your car looking in the review mirror.  When we look at under contracts the positive growth of the curve looks like it will continue.

Inventory in the Golden area has been on a steady decline since July 1 of last year.  Much of this can be attributed to seasonality, but

 backrange_400Richard Wobbekind, one of my favorite economists, who is with the Colorado Leeds School of business, is predicting that Colorado will have slow steady growth in 2012.  We are not going to see robust growth, but we are going to see growth.  The construction industry which has seen a decline in employment over the last four years is poised to add 2,900 jobs next year.

Wobbekind does caution in the article in the Daily Camera, that if something drastic happens in Europe that throws our stock market into a tail spin all bets are off and we could have rough roads ahead. 

The current numbers and job growth are running parallel to what occurred during the 2001 downturn according to Wobbekind.  If we continue to follow the same growth path we should see slow

People often have a misconception that brick laying is an easy task. There are some inexperienced bricklayers who claim to create beautiful and uniform wall only to find that their efforts have given rise to a faulty shifting wall which will quickly become a pile of rubble. Bricklaying is an art and a serious profession that requires study and foresight.

A brick consists of three parts: the face or the front, the top or the bottom and the ends. Depending upon how you plan to use the bricks, each of these three parts can be laid in two positions. The pattern in which the bricks are laid is called Bond. There are different types of bonds such as running bond, header bond and Flemish bond.

Lets us look at the running bond also known as half bond. This
