but getting all the pieces cut to size will definitely cost more money.But no one actually knows from experience or inquiry? I had the same assumptions from what you guys mentioned, but laying hardwood in a linear fashion still involves similar precision and cuts. This is just a pattern. The deal is that all the pieces should be the same size to make it easy.
At least for tile it's not any more difficult. And time didn't appear to take any longer either.... That I've seen happen. it's just not common is all. check the link. Am sure you've seen it a bajillion times...it's just some people know which angle to cleverly arrange it in...and of course more creative materials.
The pod home idea for us would be in the future. I dont think we could afford the jump from our current condo right into buying property and putting up a pod home. Ideally we would like to have purchased property and starting to look at pod home plans by the time we are about 40. This gives us about 9-10 years to work out all the details and the finances. We would like to build this up north somewhere close to cottage country or perhaps back towards Kingston. Who knows. I think where we work will ultimately determine where we put this house.just remember fillmore that herman miller makes office furniture, and U of T probably gets some kind of discount from them... that might be why your co-worker got a deal.
pod homes are a very new thing in Canada - i think i would wait awhile before investing in one. there are lots of advancements to be made, but in general a great idea.
if you want to talk sustainable buildings shoot me a PM or fb me!
you wouldn't cut the boards down to size (apart from threshold/perimeter cuts). unlike hardwood they would all have to be one size with proper tounge and groove to fit the pattern. but like hardwood once you have squared off your starting row it's just a matter of banging it out, apart from the aforementioned cuts.but getting all the pieces cut to size will definitely cost more money.
i'm also pretty sure they would have to be cut on site to account for any adjustments. trust, it's not as simple as laying regular hardwood, which i would attempt myself, but i wouldnt dare try a herringbone.
Wow, glad I didn't wait to book my appointment even though I'm not moving in until May.Noticed this today:
ecoENERGY Retrofit – Homes Grants
March 31, 2010
Effective today, the ecoENERGY Retrofit – Homes program is no longer accepting bookings for pre-retrofit evaluations. The program will continue to be administered until March 31, 2011. If you have already booked an appointment for a pre-retrofit evaluation, have completed an evaluation or applied for re-entry to the program, you remain eligible to apply for a grant.
Does this mean that the energy audit program is done and that you won't get any credits back for doing the work that is recommended?
the kitchen is small, but yes, you are only seeing the one wall, the cabinets are pre-fab, order from a company in Montreal....and thanks.Is it me or does that kitchen seem tiny? or are we just seeing one wall of cabinetry? (great work by the way - are those cabinets custom or pre-fab?)
where you at?Sod delivery in GTA. Any recommendations. I need a bunch of 9' rolls and if I can avoid getting my car dirty would be most excellent.
