Working on the entry floor now… Had to take off the already installed baseboard (our mistake to put it on), but damage was minimal. Maple plywood subfloor measuring and cutting. Once again Marmoleum is going down since it’s inexpensive, “green”, and quick and easy to install now that we’re done it a bunch of times. Here you see the [...]

I have decided that one of the best things about having Ikea open a store in Utah is the fact that there is now a ton of super cheap Ikea stuff on Craigslist. Some of the best deals I have found this week are a black leather poang chair for $50. It would [...]

Mahler's Heavenly Retreats is a real labour of love by architect and Mahler enthusiast Keith James Clarke. Keith also has a series of talks coming up about Mahler and his shedlike structures in which he worked which promise to be fascinating. The next one is: Encounters with the master's Composing Houses. This pre-concert talk will consider the building, its surroundings and associations where Mahler created his 8th Symphony in E flat major. This work will be performed later in the evening at St Paul's Cathedral. No reservations required for the lecture, but tickets for the concert are available from the City of London Festival. Venue: Gresham College, Barnard's Inn Hall, Holborn, London, EC1N 2HH Date: Wednesday 9th July 2008 Time: Talk 18.00-19.00 at Barnard's Inn Hall and will be followed by a reception

The green argument for shedworking

There are so many reasons why shedworking is a more eco-friendly way of working, some of which are nicely summed up in a Washington Post blog post by Brian Reid . Reid points out that oil and petrol prices in the US are at record highs and that "getting the 40 percent of Americans who could work from home off of the roads and into a home office would save 625 million barrels of oil a year, spare the atmosphere from 100 million tons of carbon dioxide and save us all $43 billion in gas costs". He goes on: "You can take the analysis even further. Get people to teleconference and you have an impact on airplane emissions, and enough people working virtually means fewer buildings to power, heat and cool. But you don't even have to go that far. Teleworking even one day every two weeks should theoretically cut gas usage by 10 percent, which is hardly marginal."
