Got down to the coast on Sunday. I was drawn there more by the promise good, big surf thundering in from across the Pacific, than by the prospect of anything to do at our mod beach cabin. These weather conditions can conspire to create what are usually [...]

Dow Jones dives into green tech -- will the sector ever be the same? Whether you think the Dow Jones imprimatur on environmentalism is the beginning of the Big Time, or the end of the fun, the Dow Jones Environmental Ventures conference in May 2008 will be a new venue to rub elbows with leading investors and entrepreneurs building start-ups in this sector.

I received an email from a student @ NC State on Wednesday who happened to stumble upon the barter house blog. Building a house can be a long, stressful, drawn out process and trying to barter services with construction trades to reduce costs, makes the process that much more difficult. Communicating the need [...]

By Alex Bozikovic from the Globe and MailWhen you renovate a house in Toronto's more established neighbourhoods, the polite thing to do is to hide all the new construction and leave the front facade intact. In fact, that's often a city requirement.But a [...]

Paul Raven from Suffolk-based inhus has been in touch to tell Shedworking about the company's range of garden offices which was born from a need to find a company that could supply an modern garden office that came complete with all the works to run a normal office and enhance the garden. Here's what Paul says: "So having got seriously frustrated we decided (as our main business is working on 3D cad systems) that we would design and manufacture our own building: this is a modular based wall/ceiling assembly and can be erected and supplied within 3/5 days including the red western cedar cladding. We have opted to use a faced melamine MDF board for the interior walls so not to use “wet” trades like plastering - this eliminates cracking. "The inhus uses a roof material called EPDM or Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer, a synthetic rubber material made by Firestone. We have chosen this to guarantee a watertight roof for 25 years. The EPDM is a one piece roof sheet that means no joins, no nails, no tears, no leaks, no maintenance, this means you can sleep safely at night in any weather. Using the EDPM system we can also offer an Eco-friendly green roof system. The building is also fully insulated from the floor, walls and ceilings. We are using a UPVc 28mm double glazing, however wood / aluminum alternatives can be offer including bi-folded doors system should the customer require."

Something lovely for the weekend - the Weedon Pavilion (AIA Vermont Excellence in Architecture Award) by Gossens Bachman , a semi-enclosed structure at the pond edge for reading, napping, meditation and wildlife viewing as well as serving as a "launch platform" for boating and swimming on the pond. GB say: "The structure was to be honest in material and craft and a reflection of the client's interest in Japanese design." Thanks to Bill Kratz.
