    What do EPCOT center, planetariums, and most IMAX theaters have in common? They’re all geodesic domes (albeit large versions). These very distinctive structures feature a faceted dome made up of many tiny, triangular forms. You probably won’t see one in the average American neighborhood, but thanks to continued interest in sustainable building, geodesic domes have become a small trend among the same types of adventurous people who are into tiny homes. Usually, in “What’s That House,” we talk about defining features of a particular style. But since the geodesic dome really just has…

  • Diving Rocks For Inground Pools: Naturally Awesome

    Mat Jobe
    3 Sep 2015 | 11:00 am
    Sadly, diving boards aren’t as popular as they used to be. Once a staple of backyard swimming pools, they’ve begun to fall out of favor in recent years due to safety concerns and other issues. Whether you think this bad rap is warranted or not, it’s clear that many inground pool owners are looking for alternatives. This is where diving rocks come in. Also known as jump rocks, diving rocks provide a different sort of launch pad for people who enjoy cannonballs and other dramatic pool entrances. For fans of naturalistic pool design, their visual appeal is obvious. But looks…
  • Lap Pool Dimensions and Cost

    Mat Jobe
    25 Aug 2015 | 12:20 pm
    For many people, swimming pools are for leisure – sunbathing poolside, splashing around with the kids, and entertaining friends. But for others, swimming pools are primarily for, well, swimming. If you’re one of these people, then you might enjoy having your own lap pool that approximates the dimensions of a competitive swimming lane. The question is, what are the right lap pool dimensions? Lap Pool Dimensions A good lap pool design needs to be long enough and deep enough for comfortable swimming.Most pools intended for competitive swimming in the United States are 25 yards long.
  • Cool It! 5 Shade Ideas For Your Pool and Patio

    Mat Jobe
    21 Aug 2015 | 7:10 am
    Ah, there’s nothing like slipping into the refreshing water of a swimming pool on a hot summer day. At least, that’s the idea. Unfortunately, without proper shade, even your own backyard pool might not offer much relief on those sweltering afternoons when the sun is beating down and the temperature is soaring. Feet-frying pool decks and simple heat discomfort are enough to make a pool less inviting than it should be. But then there’s also the issue of UV exposure. After all, sun screen only goes so far, especially when you (or your kids) are constantly popping in and out of…
  • Small Pools for Small Yards

    Mat Jobe
    16 Aug 2015 | 8:20 am
    There are a lot of good reasons to choose a smaller swimming pool, but lack of space is the biggie. When you don’t have much of a yard to work with, it creates an absolute limit on the size of the pool you can install. But that doesn’t mean it has to limit the coolness of your pool. With a little creativity (and some cash), small pools for small yards can be as beautiful and functional as their larger counterparts. Many homeowners with smaller backyards balk at the idea of getting a pool because they either think it will take up the entire yard, or that such a tiny pool will look…
  • Making Sure Your Private Pool Really is Private

    6 Aug 2015 | 6:22 am
    So, you’re in your backyard when suddenly you get that uncomfortable feeling. You know the one – the one that says you’re being watched. Maybe your neighbor’s kitchen window overlooks your property. Or perhaps part of your yard is viewable from a busy street. The thing is, there doesn’t have to be someone actually watching you – just the feeling that they could be is enough to keep you from fully relaxing. This is something a lot of homeowners grapple with, but when you have a swimming pool, it’s a major issue. For one thing, as a pool owner, you feel…

  • Start In The Attic When Drying A Home With Water Damage From A Failed Roof

    Zach
    1 Sep 2015 | 7:51 am
    Where should you start when drying out a home that has been damaged by water from a failed roof? In most cases, the best advice is to work from the top down, and that means starting in the attic. To promote natural drying of the building, get rid of wet and damaged property from the attic. Leave doors and windows open throughout the home to start the drying process too. After insulation has been wet, it is most often ineffective, so go ahead and remove attic insulation while removing water-damaged property. Insulation will hold moisture and won’t dry out easily, and it needs to be replaced…

For thousands of years, mankind has wanted to wash off the muck of a day in the fields, or be presentable when showing off to their wealthy friends.

    Homeowners are naturally concerned about saving money. One of the areas they typically focus heavily on when it comes to expenses is home heating. It’s generally understood that “a fireplace” can help offset the cost of heating a home, but that leads to having to decide between a gas fireplace and one that burns wood. For a variety of reasons, many homeowners choose a gas fireplace. But looking at it solely from the angle of money-saving, is gas the best choice? Gas vs. wood: Which is more economical?

How they work Single-room air cleaners cover small areas Single-room air cleaners are just like their name implies.  They’re small, portable, localized devices that are placed in individual rooms or areas to clean the air.  They usually incorporate a fan to move air, some kind of filter to remove particles, and often an electronic component that electronically charges the air to increase filtration.

    One of the main reasons for creating a sunroom is to enjoy the sunlight and great outdoors, taking in the natural environment while still having the cover of shade and the protection from insects and other annoyances. So most sunrooms are designed to let in as much sunshine and outdoor elements as possible (although, as with any other aspect of home design, this isn’t an ironclad rule). After starting with that basic foundation, though, there are a wide range of potential options for how to design and outfit your sunroom.

    Just got back to my office, and as promised, I’ll assemble here something beautiful: a list of 10 good vacuum cleaners under 100 dollars.

Often, the price of the vacuum doesn’t necessarily reflect its quality. As you’ll see in the following lines, you can…

    The great debate: open or closed kitchens. For centuries the kitchen has been used as a workspace.  Way back in the house, it had room just for the essentials.  These days it’s a different story with the option of open or close kitchens and fancy appliances. Open kitchens are less isolated and more integrated with adjacent rooms — often the living room or dining room.  It makes it easy to have a conversation with family or friends in the living room while you’re preparing food in the kitchen.  A closed kitchen is a more formal choice and feels more like a separate room in…

    We have an old (well, somewhere between 40 to 50 year I guess, but your guess is as good as mine) travertine floor in our living room. It was one of those things of the house that we were attracted to. However, it probably never had seen any attention except the regular weekly cleaning. All those years had started to take its toll, so we had to do something, now that we had the opportunity. After all, when would the next time be that the entire living and dining room area would be completely empty? Most likely when hell freezes over, so it was now or never. Some of the things that needed…

As long as there are pictures. So dive in to see how we splashed paint on our living room ceiling. We used the same white primer and paint as in the kitchen, and the same tried-‘n-tested method as before: picture around 1 m². If it has any corners, I did those first with a large round brush (5 cm): After the brush I got paint on my roller and smeared it open in an M-shape. Next came rolling…

Get panel on the lift and hoist it in the air… … then screw it in place… … only to perform “wash-rinse-repeat”. Before you know it the second row is started… … and the shit hits the fan.

But I did have to do a lot of planning to set up the frame, and that’s what we’ll be talking about today. The possibilities I wanted the ceilings to be as high as possible. A high ceiling provides a more spacious feel, and it suits the house. No discussion there. As with the kitchen, I had a few choices: a wooden frame, a single metal frame or a double metal frame. I didn’t see a wooden frame work, so the choice was between either metal options. With…

    The beauty of minimalist interior design lies in its simplicity. Minimalism can be defined as design which has been rid of all frills and contains only the absolute essential elements.
