Home Office – Before


Home Office – After

NIBIO is owned by Nicolette Bouw. She is an architect, interior designer and organizer, and she enjoys combining all 3.

She works alongside homeowners who either want a new look with new furniture, or with homeowners who are overwhelmed with clutter. Her motto is: “Creating Livable Space For Your Lifestyle.”

As an architect, she designs new floor plans with 3-D models, mood boards, furniture arrangements, shopping lists and color schemes for her clients. She designs family rooms, formal rooms, home and commercial offices, bathrooms, master closets, mud rooms and more.

As an organizer, she helps her clients with de-cluttering, sorting, organizing of belongings and setting up maintainable systems. Organizing a room is a team-effort; she will help and guide them, ask them questions, and assist them in the process and decision making.  After the session, the space (and their minds) will be transformed into an organized paradise.

Tower Garden – Grow Your Own Food!



Tower Garden – Grow Your Own Food!

Tower Garden - Grow Your Own Food

It’s a fact: people who garden eat more fruits and vegetables than people who don’t. So one of the best ways to get your family to eat more fruits and vegetables is to grow your own.

One reason is simple: convenience. When you have fresh, delicious, vine-ripened produce within arm’s reach, you’re simply more likely to eat it – and more of it. Another reason is that homegrown fruits and vegetables simply taste better, look better, and even smell better – something that’s particularly true with Tower Garden.

Also, when we see fruits and vegetables in the store, many of us don’t think so much about how they got there. But much of the produce we buy and eat today is picked well before it ripens, so it never reaches its peak of flavor and nutrition. By the time we see it on the supermarket shelf, it’s days or sometimes even weeks old, so it loses even more of its taste and nutritional benefit.

This is actually one important reason why so many of us today don’t enjoy eating fruits and vegetables – and why Tower Garden can help your family enjoy an even healthier diet.

Spartan Rooter and Plumbing

Spartan Rooter and Plumbing

Spartan Rooter

Spartan Rooter is a great local family owned business that we would like to recognize!  At Heidi North Homes we love local businesses. Few businesses are as valuable as a good plumber when the need arises.

Spartan Rooter was founded in 1958 as a family owned company.  Marv and his son Mason are the second family to own Spartan Services, Inc.  They have continued the founding principle of Spartan Rooter by providing the highest quality professional service at competitive prices to residential and commercial customers.  They serve Pierce, Thurston, and South King counties.  Spartan Rooter has been awarded with Angie’s list Super Service Award for 6 years.  Spartan Rooter is a full service plumbing company providing 24/7 emergency service for the same low rate!  They handle all service plumbing needs including drain /sewer line cleaning and locating, pipe burstng, camera inspection of sewer lines, hot water heater repair and replacement, and kitchen and bathroom remodels.

Heidi North Homes applauds Spartan Rooter’s integrity!  It is nearly impossible to find a plumber that is willing to do 24/7 emergency plumbing at the same rate that they offer for normal business hours!  Many plumning companies charge nearly double their rates for middle of the night or weekend visits.  This is just one of many ways that we feel that Spartan Rooter stands out above the crowd.

Their Account representative, Dean Sloan, is pleased to serve many local property management companies and restaurants.  So whether you manage a large apartment complex or simply have a leaky faucet, please feel free to give Spartan a call (253) 472-6629 or visit their website at  You can also check out many do it yourself and informational videos on by searching Spartan Rooter.

Life’s Flix- An Incredibly Innovative Company

Life's Flix Cams Ready

Bring your memories to life with Life’s Flix!

At Heidi North Homes there is nothing we love more than an innovative and creative local business!  We have found yet another one that we are crazy about and can’t wait to share with you!  Life’s Flix is a one of a kind do-it-yourself videography service where you get to have all the fun and they do all the work.  You get to be the star, the director, and the producer of your memories and they do all of the tedious and “techy” work of editing, preserving, and distributing them.  They disburse digital video cameras at your event, collect them afterward, and then edit and compile a video of your memories.  Russel Silva the owner and creator best tells the story of how they came to be. In this excerpt he discusses wedding days, although their services can be used for any special event you can dream of! Birthdays, retirement, family reunion, vacation, graduation… you name it!

LIFE’S FLIX – Capturing the Moments…

My wife and I got married about a year ago. It was a fun, beautiful wedding that

was only missing one thing. We skipped hiring a videographer to save both a few

thousand dollars and the awkwardness of another camera intruding all day. Now,

memories of the day drift away into fleeting images and scattered photos, leaving

my bride to watch her friends’ wedding videos and wish.


If we only had a video…

That’s why we started Life’s Flix. Not only is it a completely original, unobtrusive

take on wedding videography; it’s affordable, interactive, and adds to everyone’s

wedding experience. The concept is simple and easy: You shoot, we edit.

Here’s how it works: You book your package online or by phone and we send you

5 or 10 high-definition, handheld video cameras, smaller than most cell phones.

Think of it as the video edition of placing disposable cameras on reception tables.

Each camera holds up to one hour of fun, personal footage from your guests’

unique perspectives, complete with the personal touch of your friends and family.

Maybe your maid of honor has one camera that’s been tagging along all morning

as you eat breakfast and get your hair done (and sip a mimosa.) Then, she catches

mom tearing up as she watches you slip into your white dress. Later, she shoots

behind-the-scenes shots of the newlyweds at dinner – complete with those

impossibly perfect, candid moments. Memories, otherwise forgotten or unnoticed.

Maybe a groomsman has another camera. He manages a few shots of the guys

taking shots that morning. Then, a raw moment where your groom says he’s not

nervous, but you look into his eyes now and know better. Later, the same camera

rolls from a distance as the groom takes a first look at his bride. Priceless.

Maybe Uncle Stu has another camera. He’s bored anyways, since he would

probably rather be home watching the game. Now, he has a job to do – shoot

everything important. He crouches down to get the perfect shots of the wedding

party and you walk down the aisle. Then, he catches a great shot of the first kiss.

Maybe your 15-year-old niece has another camera. She uses her time getting closeups

of all the flowers and decorations. Then, she grabs footage of all the guests

dancing and having a good time – including Grandma “doing the mashed potato.”

Maybe a family friend (without a plus-one) runs another camera to add to the

masterpiece. She gets a different angle of the whole ceremony so nothing is

missed. Later, she wanders the reception asking people to give best wishes to the

newlyweds in a sort of video guestbook. Everyone puts in his or her two cents and

now it’s on video forever. And, she even makes a few new friends for herself.

You capture life’s moments at your wedding or event. We edit it all together into an

amazing memory you’ll watch for the rest of your life. See more:

What’s More Fun Than a Helicat???

 …..A Helicat on Lake Tapps!!!

Helicat in Action


And what is a Helicat you might ask?  It is best explained by a friend of mine Sandy Williamson..”The HeliCat 22 is a highPerformance  two-person catamaran — great for stable & safe, fun, fast, economical and practical water travel, island transport, fishing far away, or day charter/rental. Wrap her with your company logo & photos for eye-catching and fun advertising on and off the water. Open air feel and thrill like a motorcycle but without the traffic danger! Goes 20-30 mph in whitecap waves at 5 mpg–not possible in other boats.

The new design makes this cool-looking, lightweight, stable and agile catamaran safe in rough seas, and a lot of fun with good fuel economy and low maintenance. She corners flat like a rocket on a rail. She is virtually unsinkable due to a combination of positive foam flotation and separate watertight compartments.

At speeds from 20-40, she burns only 4-10 gph, getting 5 to 3.5 miles per gallon, which is unusually good for a boat that can handle rough water. Combined with her stability, it makes commuting on the water reasonably economical.”
