Home Remodeling

The kitchen is the heart of the home, where we gather and exchange the stories of the day, share chores and enjoy meals. As such, the space sustains serious foot traffic and manipulations. It also needs to be practical and easy to use.

We accompany you to combine design and function and have the resources to address all your needs: appliances and where to optimally place them in the room; kitchen cabinets needs to fit all your utensils and kitchenware; counter-top material for kitchen and bathroom. We can also provide a lighting design that will both enhance the room and improve your working space. More on Home Remodeling

5 Fire Resistant Building Materials to Keep Your Home Safe

The hot and dry summer season increases the risk of wildfires, every year and tragedy strikes regularly, displacing thousands of people. It’s becoming more and more important to have knowledge of fire resistant building materials, especially if you are building a home, or making an addition. Fire retardant materials can save you a lot in the event of a fire, and can also help you net better premiums on fire insurance. Do you want to be safe? Then check out these 5 fire resistant building materials:

Structural Fire Resistant Building Materials

Concrete

Already a common building material for its ease of production and durability, concrete is particularly useful because of its fire resistance. It has very low thermal conductivity, which means it takes a long while for heat to pass through it. Believe it or not, concrete is more fire resistant than steel, and is often used to protect it.

Brick

Widely seen in older buildings, brick is an all around solid choice for home-building. Given that bricks are essentially made in ovens, there is a clear degree of fire resistance inherent in them. Of course, bricks are more than just a fire retardant building material. Individually, they possess structural integrity, even in the face of high temperatures, and thus do not crumble away as easily as other materials might.

Finishes and Insulation

Stucco

Thought of primarily as a medium for art, a stucco plaster is actually quite the effective finish if one is seeking flame retardant materials. A stucco finish can be spread over other building materials to make them more resistant.

Gypsum

Another common mainstay of layered fire resistant building materials, gypsum, more commonly known as drywall, is  It is made of layers of paper surrounding a sheet of gypsum, the core of which includes specially treated water, which prevents the spread of fire for some time.

Rock Wool

Rock wool, or perhaps more accurately, mineral wool, is an excellent insulator. This is because of the way that sheets and bundles of the stuff partition air. It is decently effective on its own, but typically does better as part of a combined fire defense

Make no mistake: if you want your property to last, make sure it is built with fire resistant building materials. Most are quite affordable, and offer invaluable protection, especially in hot, dry seasons. Don’t forget to check your house for weaknesses, such as air leaks, poorly insulated walls, failing windows. Regular yard maintenance is also strongly recommended so the flames don’t have it easy.

What a Fancy Idea! A Review of the 5 Most Unusual Homes

What a Fancy Idea! A Review of the 5 Most Unusual Homes

Driving around the country, through cities or in remote places, we are bound to come across some unusual homes, an old structure that became or can become a residence, against all odds (mills, lighthouse, churches, barns, firehouses). Some are abandoned and in disarray, others are being bought d and turned into houses or condos. The trend is to repurpose the space to live in it, maybe as a way to disconnect from the diktats and reconnect with the past.
