Following is a story of how this site became

I first created this site because I wanted to learn about Dreamweaver, then I felt a need to help wonderful people who are mostly in business from word-of-mouth advertising. Sandpoint cycles good economic times and in the past hard times, I wanted to expand the local network to help these “good people” many of whom did not advertise themselves, back in 2004 I posted images of their business cards.

Soon after the site went live for its first time, we had a client who had experienced a great loss from a fly-by-night remodel. Known in the past by the common new Bonner County resident that has a “truck and a dog” calling themselves a contractor, stories you may hear.  She asked me “How can we find people we can trust?” I was proud to say I have a website full of those “good people” who have helped us or our family, and village friends and we have used their services.

May this site be helpful, this has been my community service, 2004 to now, 20 years of making good people providing services phone line. Please email me at if you have an unpleasant experience with any of these referred contacts or if you find links that no longer work or just cause. If the link has asked for your contacts I try not to support those sites. If you want a realtor or more things to do information go to Sandpoint Online they will be very helpful. Thank you, for reading this-enjoy your visit-and may peace and good health be yours, gini
