Well I made it. Sitting here at 10PM in Ann & Dave's kitchen (that's my view out the window), typing away on my pleasingly-fast wireless broadband connection. I had my usual great time at Marcia and Rutger's and a nice dinner tonight with Margaret and [...]

By Melissa Mancini From the Durham Region News The green movement has become so prominent even industries known for wasteful practises are joining the crusade. Industries like construction. New housing developments can create truckloads of waste but some developers are getting into a program called LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), to counteract the debris left from their building sites....

Whoops. Early last week we received a call from our supervisor saying that the framers were adding extra bracing between the studs for stability prior to drywall and that they accidentally clipped some cabling. The report came in as speaker wire, but a trip out to the house at the end of the work day [...]

I had a large lcd screen for the mini mac home music server.  the problem was, it required my cabinet to be open to view the selection playing, and the kids like to be able to see the visualizer.  I scaled down to a smaller monitor and mounted it outside...

A great piece in the New York Times by William Shaw looks at how Sjoerd Didden and Ghislaine van de Kamp decided to build on their Rotterdam roof to make the most of their space. Shaw explains that they: "...raised their two boys in an open-plan loft on the third floor of Didden’s wig workshop, a former garment factory in central Rotterdam. In true bohemian fashion, a transplanted garden shed served as the kids’ bedroom. “But it was a very nice shed,” van de Kamp says with a laugh." When the boys became larger they brought in architect Winy Maas who is keen on using urban space creatively and sensibly and this is what he came up with as Shaw continues: "The “village” consists of three bedrooms built on the roof: a big room for the parents and two smaller, semi-detached ones for the two boys, each a distinct houselike shape and separated symbolically by what Maas describes as “a main street.” The whole represents both the connections between the family members and their need to go their own ways."
