Seeking to architecturally balance the functional, the handsome, the efficient, and the economical is not an easy task; but this was the brief provided for the Warburg house. The question posed by the client was simple: can we provide a simple, contemporary, and energy efficient home for less than $100,000?Save this picture!Recommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornMetallicsStudcoWall Stop Ends – EzyCapFastenersSchöckRainscreen Cladding Facade Fasteners – Isolink®WoodGustafsWood Veneered Wall & Ceiling PanelsOn a wooded Canadian farmstead, the new house replaces a dwelling that was no longer able to fulfill its function due to build quality and the strains of a working farm. The architectural concept was simple: open, flexible, and efficient. Save this picture!As an extrusion of an iconic “house-shaped” form, the new house floats 200mm off of the ground. Positioned along a large clearing to the south of the farmyard, the new house opens itself to the southern sun and completes the enclosure of a small meadow to the east. Save this picture!With an architectural logic of simple elegance, pain-staking efforts were made to preserve the purity of the house’s iconic form. Supported by two steel frames, the simple form creates a singular interior volume. The exterior skin is draped in black corrugated steel sheets long enough to extend the full length of the house. Both the east and west end-walls are punched into the form to create an announcement of entry and provide a small weather break for the entry doors on either side. The opposed entrances offer morning and evening natural light as well as passive cooling in the summer months. Save this picture!The western façade is a more public stage for the activities of a day-to-day farm life offering vantage points to the extent of the farmyard and is accompanied by a century old log cabin, relocated from within the site as exterior storage. To the east a smaller and more intimate deck protrudes into a small meadow, allowing for a quiet retreat from the demands of the farm. An abstracted pattern relating to regional tree growth is applied to the cedar decking, which continues vertically up the end walls, contrasting the dark exterior form. Save this picture!The interior volume is simple and minimally detailed. The space is differentiated by two elements: the structural steel frames, and a birch-clad “object”. The object houses all of the functional elements of the house including the kitchen, mechanical equipment, a full bathroom with laundry, and storage for the private area to the east. Windows and skylights are precisely positioned to take full advantage of the natural light from the southern exposure, and are detailed with extruded wooden frames that accentuate their placement and views. Save this picture!The polished concrete floor contains radiant in-floor heating, while the thick white outer walls are heavily insulated to provide a blanket of protection from the elements. The mechanical system was designed and executed to be of the highest efficiency. This, paired with the higher quality construction processes garnered the house the highest EnerGuide rating possible for a home that is not net-zero. The only way for the home to be more efficient than it is, is to have it generate its own energy. Save this picture!Both as an individual prototype and as an assemblage of systems, the Warburg house sets a precedent for bioi as well as for Canadian architecture by investigating the role a simple architecture can take. Through an exploration of emergent technologies and innovative construction methodologies, a fundamental step towards a more affordable, efficient, and functional system of residential architecture has been realized.Project gallerySee allShow lessmodeLab Approach WorkshopArticlesUniversity at Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences / HOKArticles Share Warburg HouseSave this projectSaveWarburg House ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/236665/warburg-house-bioi Clipboard 2012 “COPY”last_img read more

2020 Farm Income Forecast Looks ‘Average’

first_img SHARE Previous articleApplications Open for Farm Bureau Women’s Communication Boot CampNext articleU.S. Pork Exports Set Record in 2019 NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter U.S. net cash farm income, the total income after expenses, is forecast to decrease $13.1 billion to $109.6 billion in 2020. When adjusted for inflation, the drop is almost 11 percent compared to the previous year.U.S. net farm income is a broader measure of profitability. It incorporates non-cash items like economic depreciation and gross imputed rental income, and it forecast to increase by $1.4 billion to $96.7 billion in 2020. That’s a 1.4 percent jump over 2019.The USDA says if the forecast changes are accurate, net cash farm income in 2020 would be 0.6 percent below the inflation-adjusted average calculated throughout 2000-2018. Net farm income would be 5.4 percent above the average during 2000-2018.The two income measures will diverge this year because of how net sales from inventories are treated. Net cash farm income records the income in the year a sale took place, while net farm income counts it in the year production occurred.For example, high net sales at $14.9 billion from crop inventories forecast in 2019 are expected to boost net cash farm income significantly that year. Very low net sales from inventories ($0.5 billion) in 2020 are expected to contribute to a decrease in net cash farm income between the two years. 2020 Farm Income Forecast Looks ‘Average’ Home Indiana Agriculture News 2020 Farm Income Forecast Looks ‘Average’ By NAFB News Service – Feb 6, 2020 last_img read more

The 109https://www.tcu360.com/author/the-109/ printFort Worth Mayor Betsy Price surprised tourists during Friday’s cattle drive in the historic Fort Worth Stockyards.Price, along with several other Fort Worth Bike Sharing sponsors, rode in front of the herd on Fort Worth Bike Sharing B-Cycles down Exchange Avenue.The event was in honor of an expansion for Fort Worth Bike Sharing, which recently added eight new stations. The new stations add to the already present 35 rental locations.Price said the new bike rack in the stockyards is the first of its kind on the north side of Fort Worth.  She said they chose to add a station to the Fort Worth Stockyards because it is a heavily used tourist area.“Where else except Fort Worth can you ride B-Cycle’s in cowboy boots and have long horn cattle follow you?” Price said.Nick Oliver, communications manager for Fort Worth Bike Sharing, said the nonprofit also celebrated its two year anniversary for operations on April 27. The group has seen over 30,000 riders use the bikes over the last two years.Oliver said most people who attended the event were tourists visiting the stockyards to see the cattle drive.Southlake resident Ryan Gardner said she didn’t realize Price was going to lead the herd.  She said she didn’t know much about Fort Worth Bike Sharing before the event.“I’m inclined to look it up on the Internet and probably learn more about it,” Gardner said.The event also celebrated a $35,000 donation given by Green Mountain Energy Sun Club to power 10 bike-share stations with solar kits.“It fits with our mission, because Fort Worth Bike Sharing is all about the environment,” Tony Napolillo, manager at Green Mountain Energy Sun Club, said.  “They’re trying to green up the people’s community and give people options besides using fossil fuels, and that’s what we do as well.” Linkedin Facebook Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature The 109https://www.tcu360.com/author/the-109/ The 109https://www.tcu360.com/author/the-109/ Linkedin Twitter Grains to grocery: One bread maker brings together farmers and artisans at locally-sourced store Previous articleCity Council approves new baseball academyNext articleWoman attacked at gunpoint on TCU’s campus The 109 RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR TCU athletes are “SPARK-ing” an interest in Fort Worth area students The 109https://www.tcu360.com/author/the-109/ Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturdaylast_img read more

Nationally, according to the study, it costs on average just over $16,000 a year to maintain a home properly. That number gets higher in 19 states and Washington, D.C., though.In particular, it’s most expensive to maintain a home in the Northeast. In New Jersey and Washington, D.C., the average annual maintenance cost is above $18,000. In Connecticut and Maryland, it’s above $17,000, the report stated.The South, in general, is where it costs least to maintain the average home. Annual maintenance in Mississippi was just below $15,000. In West Virginia and Arkansas, annual costs averaged just above the $15,000 mark, the report found.But even so, state averages take into account some large fluctuations at the ZIP code level. Take Illinois, where the state average for annual maintenance costs is about $16,300. But in Kenilworth, about 20 miles north of Chicago, the median cost to buy a home is nearly $1.5 million, and the average annual cost to maintain the median home is $27,661, according to Porch. Meanwhile, Hutsonville, about 200 miles due south of Chicago, on the Indiana border, averaged roughly $12,600 in annual maintenance fees, the report found.In some states, the difference between the most and least expensive properties to maintain (by ZIP code) can be enormous. In Illinois, the above example spells out a 120 percent differential. New York and California are close, with differentials of 117 and 114 percent, respectively.On the other end of the spectrum, Idaho, Rhode Island, Hawaii, and Louisiana had the smallest percentages between cities with the most expensive cost of housing upkeep and the least expensive. The difference from most to least expensive in Louisiana is 42 percent; for the others, it’s 35 to 36 percent.Much of the expenses associated with annual maintenance come from amenities like pools, Porch reported.“If you decide to buy a house with a pool, expect to pay for cleanings roughly every two months,” the report stated. “At an average of $105 per job, that’s no small commitment.”There’s also replacing the pool filter once every couple years, typically at a cost around $1,800 a pop. Add this onto the cost of lawn maintenance and money set aside for renovations or one-off projects like plumbing or roof work, and the dollars add up, the report found.

George Floyd’s brother to David Muir: ‘We’re all standing together’ for justice

first_imgABC NewsBy ENJOLI FRANCIS, ESTHER CASTILLEJO and ERIC NOLL, ABC News(NEW YORK) —  Terrence Floyd, the brother of George Floyd, whose death after being restrained by police officers has sparked protests and calls for justice and an end to racism all over the U.S. and the world, spoke to ABC News anchor David Muir at a Brooklyn, New York memorial, telling him that “we’re all standing together for the cause of justice.”Terrence Floyd addressed thousands of supporters who attended a vigil Thursday in Brooklyn for George Floyd.George, 46, originally from Houston, Texas, died in Minneapolis on Memorial Day after a police officer placed his knee on George’s neck for nearly nine minutes, according to prosecutors.In video taken by a bystander, George could be heard saying, “I can’t breathe,” as Officer Derek Chauvin restrained him. Chauvin is now facing second-degree and third-degree murder and manslaughter charges. Three other officers who were present during the arrest have been charged with second-degree aiding and abetting felony murder and second-degree aiding and abetting manslaughter.All four officers were fired from the force.At the vigil Thursday, held at Brooklyn’s Cadman Plaza Park, Terrence and his family told Muir, the anchor of World News Tonight, that they hope their tragedy marks a turning point in the U.S.Thousands gathered for the vigil — black, white, LatinX and of various backgrounds — to pay their respects to the Floyd family and to demand justice for George.“You know, when I see stuff like this, I cry, because it just shows me… that we’re all one,” supporter Mickia Williams told Muir. “We’re all loved.”On the stage, an emotional Terrence was lifted by a sea of faces in the crowd, many who were holding signs, kneeling and calling out: “George Floyd,” “I can’t breathe” and “Justice now!”“I want to thank God,” he told the crowd. “Because at the end of the day, my brother’s gone, but the Floyd name still lives on.”He told supporters that while he was proud of the protests, he was not proud of the looting and violence that had overshadowed demonstrators’ message.“My brother wasn’t about that,” he said. “The Floyds are a God-fearing family.”“Power to the people. Not just my people. Not just your people. Not just the people they think is important or whatever. I’m talking about power to the people. All of us,” he said to the crowd.As the thousands began to march from Cadman Plaza Park and across the Brooklyn Bridge to Manhattan, Terrence described to Muir that moment speaking in front of the crowd.“I just knew… my brother was proud. … I know the whole Floyd family was proud of that. Because we’re all standing together. … And I just appreciate it. We all appreciate it,” he said. “My brother up there in heaven appreciates it.”He told Muir that hearing the crowd yell out his brother’s name resonated with him for a special reason.“That’s my father’s namesake, so not only do I hear my brother’s name, I hear my father too. You know what I’m saying?” Terrence said.“My father’s gone. My brother is gone. They up there together. So when I heard that name, it just, it made me feel good,” he told Muir.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
