Shingle Style: Warm Home Design for Seaside into Suburb

First popularized by the Vanderbilts, Astors, Morgans and their peers, the Shingle style developed in New England in the mid to late 1800s in reaction to the highly ornamented Victorian revival styles. Simple forms and a minimum of ornamentation made the Shingle design America’s first”contemporary” design, suitable for your new suburban home in addition to beachfront”cottages.”

The Shingle style’s most telling feature was that it handled the home as one large volume of space that the outside wrapped round and enclosed. Like a balloon, the Shingle style outside was all taut and tensioned to hold the inside space set up.

The Shingle style fell out of favor in the turn of the 20th century when the Colonial Revival style came into vogue. It was not until the 1980s that the design arrived back in fame, having been resurrected by architects in New England. Today, new houses developed in the Shingle style could be understood from the Northeast to the Southwest, by the rugged coasts of Maine into the sunny suburbs of Southern California and everywhere in between.

BraytonHughes Design Studios

Unfinished shingle siding, white trim, green cloth awnings, gable roofs and deep recesses are all hallmarks of the Shingle style. In contemporary updates, the curves and volumes of the initial design are converted into more severe, angular shapes.

Rhodes Architectural Stone

Another trademark feature of Shingle-style houses is that the extensive usage of pergolas and patios to expand the living space to the outdoors.

Frequently large and rambling, the classic Shingle design is more a group of parts compared to one easy form. The easy forms and shapes and deficiency of fussy ornamentation are hallmarks of the design.

Smith & Vansant Architects PC

Shingle-style houses really like being located where there are large yards so that a strong inside/outside connection can be created. In this case, terraced landscaping and multiple porches connect the house to its yard.

LDa Architecture & Interiors

McKay Architects

Shingle-style homes need towers, preferably with windows all of the way round, to create places to collect in the sunlight and catch the surrounding views.

Tracery Interiors

Here, the Shingle style is adapted into the Southeast. It has the same group of forms and shapes, the oversize gestures and tower — but with a wide, sheltering roof to give shade from the hot Florida sun.

LDa Architecture & Interiors

With its plain stucco foundation and simplified forms, shingle siding, eyebrow dormers and a strong vertical element, this house incorporates elements of both the Shingle in addition to the English Arts and Crafts styles.

Christopher A Rose AIA, ASID

Hallways Using a Beckoning Beauty All Their Own

The popularity of open floor plans in modern and contemporary residential design — most evident in the “great rooms” that combine living space, dining room and kitchen has not completely abolished the space which traditionally joins distinct rooms: halls. Even with open floor plans, halls could be integrated as transitional spaces between private and public, inside and out, or between various zones of the house.

Modern/contemporary hallways can be partitioned into three kinds: single-loaded, or outboard routes with rooms on either side; double-loaded, the internal corridors with rooms on both sides; and bridges, be they inside tall spaces or as separate amounts connecting two sides of a house. Hybrids certainly exist, but these distinctions are utilized to structure the examples that follow.

Sagan / Piechota Architecture

This house in Big Sur, Calif. uses all-glass walls to start up expansive views of the ocean and surrounding landscape. Here we can observe it to the left, along with the glass wall to the right way that view is not sacrificed by the hallway that offers entry to the ends of the linear plan.

jessop architects

Direct sunlight is not always desired, even if it’s into a hallway, where heat can build up and radiate to the remainder of the house. The exterior wall within this example uses louvers to cut back on the hot sun. Notice the pocket in the left foreground, which closes off this end of this hallway from the remainder.

Architects, Webber + Studio

This hallway uses solid panels to make a rhythm in the glass outside. As you can see, these panels are ideal for displaying paintings. The clerestories are a nice touch that illuminate the ceiling and lower the need for artificial lighting throughout the day.

John Lum Architecture, Inc.. AIA

More rhythm and art: one opposite the other, Here the Cabinets and photos work in concert.

Jeff Green Photography

The rhythm here, in what I am imagining is the exterior wall at right, is compact but splendid in the light it generates. This can be aided no doubt by the light onto the far wall and the world which appears to beckon.

Sutton Suzuki Architects

In this example the outside wall is a courtyard, so both sides are controlled, allowing for full-height glazing with no shades for privacy. Shelving on the left screens art which may be appreciated even from outside, as people lounge next to the pool.

David Vandervort Architects

This hall does a good job of opening views into the landscape of trees, but note how it also climbs in the distance to follow the topography. An exterior stair visible through the glass in the center of this photo demonstrates that this consideration of site extends into the spaces out as well.

John Maniscalco Architecture

Moving into double-loaded corridors, we can observe that spatially and with respect to pure lighting they are not as dramatic or special since single-loaded ones. But often they’re necessary. This one is treated, using a white wall reverse a wood wall with matching cupboard doors.

John Maniscalco Architecture

Lighting can definitely be used to make halls more unique, and in this scenario rhythmic. Often the doorways that line halls can be irrelevant, creating a random result (not the case here), thus a solid element like those lights may instill its rhythm. Notice the sliding door in the distance, a nice touch that enables the window to frame the end of the hallway when that space is not occupied.

Peter A. Sellar – Architectural Photographer

Even the barest of halls — and I can’t think of one more bare than those two white walls — can be made better by shaping the distance.

Ian Moore Architects

This seems like it could win the award for longest hallway on Houzz, but it’s actually comprised of two segments: In the foreground is a double-loaded corridor with sliding doors onto the left and some ingenious display distance below storage on the best; in the background is …

Ian Moore Architects

… A bridge which links the present house and also. Here again we have louvers cutting back on direct sunlight. This sort of visual “noise” also discourage birds from inadvertently striking glass walls, something which is raised in bridges with glass on both sides.

Fatima McNell

This large bridge seems like it could be utilized as a space, state as a really nice home office.

This second-floor bridge comprises a stair to connect two parts of the house. The dark remedy of this ground and ceiling helps to concentrate attention on the outside along with its daylight.

Kanner Architects – CLOSED

This ground-floor hallway bridges two parts of the house, but in addition, it acts as a transition between the outside (left) along with the courtyard (right).

jones | haydu

What at first glance appears to be only a double-loaded corridor is restricted by a net on the ceiling. From above …

jones | haydu

… we see that this is a bridge which follows the route of the hallway downstairs. In cases like this the location of this bridge is a given, since the distance below the swimmer’s summit is the only place to fit it with enough vertical clearance to walk.

This indoor bridge is illuminated with a glass-block skylight which follows the walls. With indoor bridges, it’s often the situation that what lies in the conclusion is of some importance, like the master bedroom, so the special journey is suitable. A bathroom in the end of this hallway, for instance, would not make much sense.

Turnbull Griffin Haesloop

The last few examples show hybrids which combine bridges together with single-loaded hallways, what are basically mezzanines. This one finds books windows that are opposite , all under a roof.

Chang + Sylligardos Architects

I sense a pattern: more novels along with a sloping roof. Hallways are good places for novels, because they don’t occupy space in other rooms as well as the mental noise they create (look how a lot of the books I have not read yet!) Is tucked out of their way, yet they’re still easily accessible.

John Maniscalco Architecture

Here we’ve got art opposite windows below a sloping roof. The skylight is really a nice touch, illuminating the paintings which may be observed from below as well.

Mistakes to Avoid When Doing Water Damage Cleanup

The best way to approach a water damage accident, whether big or small, is with the utmost urgency and care.  If you’re pretty confident in your Orange County water damage capabilities then, by all means, respond as quickly as possible to the water damage, as delayed cleanup can lead to even more damage to your property.

Read on to find out which mistakes you should avoid when doing a water damage cleanup in your home.

Not Recognizing a Dangerous Situation

One of the biggest mistakes that DIY-ers make when it comes to water damage restoration Orange County is taking the problem at face value. It’s important to not make any sweeping assumptions in a water damage situation, as a small puddle on the surface could be hiding some serious structural damage, chemical or sewage contaminants and even mold. That’s why it’s so important to start by evaluating the situation first before you start cleaning up to ascertain what recourse should be taken, and whether or not your expertise will be enough to sort the situation out or if you should call on the services of a water damage specialist.

Using the Wrong Equipment

The most common DIY tools used by homeowners to deal with water damage are the usual mop and bucket, or a wet-dry vacuum cleaner/sump pump for a more heavy-duty job. However, it’s important to note here that the absence of water doesn’t necessarily equate to a finished job, as there could still be water and moisture trapped inside the surfaces of your home.

The best way to figure out how much moisture is trapped inside the walls and floor surfaces is to rent moisture detection equipment and use it to determine the extent of the damage. This will inform your next step, which should be to completely dry out the entire area in order to avoid hidden damage and issues with mold in the near future.

The most efficient drying equipment that we recommend you use for this purpose is either a commercial grade fan or a dehumidifier, both of which you can rent out at a minimal cost.

Ignoring the Details

Oftentimes, it’s the small details that end up spoiling your water damage Orange County efforts. For example, things like removing the carpet padding, securing the furniture and other important valuables, keeping certain doors and drawers closed and others open, ending the drying process too soon, as well as making sure that everything is decontaminated in the entire area. These are all small details that many overlook.

Again, search for hidden damage using dedicated equipment, because moisture can easily hide your subfloors or drywall, causing a serious mold problem later that will take a lot of time and money to fix.  

As you can see, water damage repair Orange County is no easy feat, and is even harder when you’re a one-man (or woman) team. The best way to get the job done efficiently and properly is to act fast and pay attention to detail while making sure that you use the right equipment along each step of the way.

The best way to Grow Heliconias From Rhizomes

Commonly called birds that were fake or lobster claws -of-paradise, the Heliconias don’t develop outside year round except in places like Hawaii. Hardy to U.S. Department of Agriculture hardiness zone 1-0, lobster claws experience injury if exposed to temperatures below 40 degrees Fahrenheit, therefore develop them in large containers indoors or in greenhouses. This short lived flowers for three to four years and perennial grows. Lobster claws grow from rhizomes planted in rich soil that is organically.

Drill holes in the underside of a heavy duty big container using an electric drill. Space the holes similarly across the underside. Cut of screen mesh materials with scissors a little bit the dimensions of the container bottom. Place the mesh in the plant pot to stop the soil.

Mix together equal parts of potting soil, woodchip mulch and peat moss to get a fast draining soil mixture that can hold the correct amount of water for the lobster-claw plant’s roots. Fill the plant pot together with the soil mixture up to 1-inch in the rim.

Dig a hole 1 to 3″ deep, with respect to the dimensions of the rhizome. Place the rhizome in the hole using the most apparent developing factors. Level them downward whether there are roots. Don’t worry excessively about planting the rhizome upside down, as it’ll just have a little longer to produce it to the area.

Water the soil drains out the underside of the container. Place the plant pot – catch and place in a area with indirect light. Growth starts in two to eight months. While the rhizome is developing, keep the soil moist.

Feed the lobster-claw with well-balanced water soluble fertilizer when the plant is approximately a month-old. Feed every 8 weeks after the fertilizer manufacturer’s instructions

Essential Tips When Renting a Roll Off Dumpster

Renting a dumpster can be a great solution to get rid of any debris from your house. Whether you are doing a major remodeling at home or maybe you have finally decided to do that spring cleaning you’ve been planning for months, a roll off dumpster is a great option. However, there are a number of important things you will need to keep in mind when you choose a handyman Bloomington in service.

The following are some of the most important ones:

Prepare a Location for the Container

A standard dumpster is relatively big. A 40-yard roll off dumpster, for example, will measure about 22 feet long and 8 feet wide. For homeowners who have a small driveway, such a large dumpster will not fit.  In this case, you need to plan for an alternative space. You can move your car out of the driveway and see if it will work. The goal is to make sure that the roll-off truck can enter your driveway.

Shop Around

There are many dumpster rental companies out there, most of which have unique services. If you are looking to rent for the first time, make sure you take advantage of these options. Instead of hiring the first handyman Bloomington you come across, take some time to look at what various companies are offering and pick a provider that meets your needs and your budget.

Choose the Container Size Carefully

Dumpsters for rent come in different sizes. This diversity in size is based on the fact that different people have different needs. The bigger the dumpster the more money you will pay for it. Bigger dumpsters are also bulky and very difficult to handle. However, it all depends on the job you have. If you are moving a lot of debris then a bigger dumpster will offer great value for money compared to a smaller one. The most important thing is to clearly assess the job at hand.

Avoid Prohibited Items

Each handyman Bloomington service provider has a list of materials that it doesn’t accept. This might include hazardous waste such as car batteries, oils, inflammable materials etc. Before you hire a dumpster, ensure you understand the materials that are prohibited. If you find that you have such materials to move, discuss the matter with the rental service provider for alternative disposal options. Don’t sneak in prohibited items into the debris and assume no one will notice. This will cost you more in the end.

Plan Ahead

You need to have a clear plan on how you will use the dumpster. Have a plan on how the dumpster will be dropped off and how it will be delivered. Create a timeline too for the job and stick to it. This will help you maximize the use of the dumpster.

A handyman Bloomington can help you move a lot of items quicker but you must maximize every rental. Follow the tips above very carefully so you can choose the right roll off dumpster for your needs.

The best way to Remove Wax & Sealer From Vinyl Composite Tiles

Vinyl composition tile is created from chips of vinyl which can be fused together with strain and heat. The tiles are available in various designs and colors and so are made to resemble wood, stone, terrazzo and concrete. Vinyl composition tile is generally employed in locations with high foot-traffic due to the durability. This toughness makes it easy to clear as correctly used chemical flooring strippers and buffer devices not damage it.

Prepare the Ground

Walk the whole ground and examine it for mud, gum or other international products which can be stuck onto the tile. Scrape the international products using a knife up.

Inspect the corners of the workshop where. Scrape the wax buildup out using the knife while being mindful to not dig to the tile.

The ground cautiously using a dust mop to remove dirt and all dust.

Place the ground-buffer device — using a new, black-coloured pad that is stripping — as well as the wet-vac device conveniently from the workshop. Make certain it is plugged in and ready to go.

Stripping and Waxing the Ground

Soak the mop at a time and use it to the ground — one 10-by-10-foot area using a generous quantity of the solution.

Allow the solution setting on the flooring for roughly five to 1 minutes to emulsify sealer and the wax.

Scour the handled section of the flooring with all the black pad as well as the ground buffer device. In order for the stripper pad moves in a round pattern that continually overlaps the prior circle control the movement of the flooring buffer.

Remove the stripper remedy utilizing the damp-vac device while it’s wet. Don’t try to moist-vac the portion of of flooring in the event the the perfect solution is h-AS dried. It’s necessary to repeat the procedure that is stripping before moist-vacuuming.

Mop the portion of of ground with hotwater and the clear mop to grab and rinse a-way all traces of wax remedy and sealer. Mop the flooring several occasions asneeded to keep it obvious and warm, and alter the water.

Wring the mop out completely and mop the flooring dry.
