This project involved an extensive remodel and transformation of an existing 1974 cast-concrete and brick house for two into a house for a family. Known unaffectionately in the neighborhood as ‘the bunker’ when the new owners bought the house in 2001, the original house turned its back to the street, and from external appearances was extremely private. Within, the open plan supported a fluid arrangement of program which resulted in no dedicated private space. Save this picture!Recommended ProductsDoorsC.R. LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemDoorsdormakabaEntrance Doors – Revolving Door 4000 SeriesWindowsAir-LuxSliding Window – CurvedWoodSculptformTimber Click-on BattensThe original 7,000 square foot house was built by and for a concrete magnate whose company supplied the concrete for nearby Highway 13. As such, the workmanship of the existing cast-in-place concrete barrel vaults was exquisite – an obvious testament to the original client and architect’s love of Kahn’s Kimbell museum. However, because the house was built as an enfilade arrangement of rooms organized around a central courtyard, privacy was at a premium, the sole sources of light coming from the interior and rear courtyards. The challenge of the project was helping the new owners to understand how the house could be made livable for a family without sacrificing the positive qualities suggested by the original architecture. Save this picture!The intent of the remodel was to make the house practical for a family and to upgrade the finishes and feel of the house while remaining true to its original spirit of large expanses of exposed materials and visual openness. The primary living spaces, kitchen, and baths were all reconfigured to maximize the flexibility of the space – enhancing the spatial continuity and openess of the existing house while creating possibilities for private enclosures. All work was coded by material to highlight the difference between the orignal concrete, brick, and travertine shell and the new space-making interventions. Save this picture!Modifications to the shell are wenge, travertine, blued hot-rolled steel, or bronze anodized aluminum, while new interventions are white oak, etched glass, white marble, white plaster, or white painted sheetrock. In the living room, a glass enclosure houses a fireplace on axis with the pool beyond. Fully operable sliding glass doors open to perceptually extend the interior space into the courtyard. The new kitchen can be opened to engage fully in the life of the house or can be closed off for formal occasions through the device of oversized folding doors. Three new bedrooms – developed as elaborate pieces of casework that are ‘inserted’ into the existing masonry shell – were also added to the house, each requiring windows in the originally solid exterior walls.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessTree-ness House / Akihisa HirataArticlesA Doll’s House for Clementine / TDO ArchitectureArticles Share CopyAbout this officeOgrydziak Prillinger ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasHousesPiedmont3D ModelingUnited StatesPublished on October 25, 2010Cite: “Concrete House / Ogrydziak Prillinger Architects” 25 Oct 2010.

On an island of 5 by 100 meters in the Dutch lake area ‘Loosdrechtse Plas’ 2by4-architects designed a unique recreational house. The house is a subtle frame that captures the view from the inside out and outside in. Completely anticipating on the client’s needs 2by4 has designed the house in such a way that it can customize the interaction with the surrounding nature. One of the glass facades can be completely opened so that the wooden outdoor terrace becomes part of the interior. To even more lift the inside-outside barrier the dark wooden facade can be folded open, creating a panoramic view to nature. The folded facade becomes an abstract perpendicular element that floats above the water. By opening this part of the facade the wooden floor of the living area is now directly connected to the water enabling the inhabitants to access the lake from the living room. Save this picture!Courtesy of 2by4-architectsAlthough the size of the house is limited it still contains all the functions that are needed for comfort. Shower, toilet, kitchen, closets, storage and other functions are all integrated into a double wall. According to the need of a specific function the wall can be modified so that the spatial configuration changes, resulting into different atmospheres. The fire place, that hangs from the ceiling, also contributes to the changing of atmospheres because it can be rotated towards the outdoor terrace for those cozy summer evenings.Save this picture!Courtesy of 2by4-architectsThe orientation of the house is based on sunrise and sunset. In the morning cold light shines on the east facade, illuminating the white interior. In the evening the warm light flows into the west facade,  announcing the end of the day.Save this picture!Courtesy of 2by4-architectsSave this picture!Courtesy of 2by4-architectsVisitors that arrive at the house enter it in a series of sequences. Seen from the main land the house floats above the island. Arriving on the island itself the visitors are guided towards an elevated jetty that brings them to the terrace on the other side. The terrace continues towards the inside of the house where it stops halfway. Here the floor changes material and becomes a raised platform from where the visitors can look back at the nature they just came from. Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessFilms & Architecture: “The Fifth Element”ArticlesPratt Explores the Importance of Cold War Era Pre-Fabricated Building SystemsEvent Share “COPY” Island House / 2by4-architectsSave this projectSaveIsland House / 2by4-architectsSave this picture!Courtesy of 2by4-architectsHouses•The Hague, The Netherlands Island House / 2by4-architects Area:  32 m² Area:  32 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this office2by4-architectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesThe HagueHousesThe NetherlandsPublished on March 01, 2013Cite: “Island House / 2by4-architects” 01 Mar 2013.

Harvest Forecast says Plenty of Field Time Ahead

first_img Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Oct 6, 2017 SHARE Another-dry-stretch-comingThe HAT weekly harvest weather forecast update comes on the heels of some rainy conditions for parts of Indiana and accompanying delays in harvest activity. Hoosier Ag Today chief meteorologist Ryan Martin says it does look like the coming week will bring another lengthy run of dry weather. But the dry stretch isn’t here yet.“Heavy rains from Friday may leak over into Saturday in parts of the Hoosier state,” he said. “I don’t think coverage is going to be that spectacular, but I will not waive the all clear flag on rain in Indiana until sometime Saturday midday to late afternoon. Even then it comes with a bit of a caveat as we see Hurricane Nate come up. The remains of Nate will then try to sweep across the far eastern Corn Belt. I think it impacts Ohio greatly, but we might see a little bit of moisture in far southeastern parts of Indiana next Monday and into Tuesday. So, keep an eye on that. The rest of the state dries down.”Martin says after the hurricane remains pass, strong high pressure will be the rule over much of Indiana.Ryan Martin“I think we see dry weather Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, basically right on through the 15th into the 16th of October. That means we should be able to get back to harvest as there were some areas that didn’t get nearly as much rain over the past few days. those areas will dry down the quickest. We’ll see nice breezy conditions this week coming up which will also aid in dry down, so yes we’ve had a slowdown in harvest activity, but it does not last long term.”The harvest weather forecast is sponsored by Seed Consultants and Kokomo Grain, and if you would like it emailed to you, sign up at www.hoosieragtoday.com.

CFPB Issues CARES Act Forbearance Guidance

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago  Print This Post Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and the Conference State Bank Supervisors issued joint guidance to mortgage servicers clarifying the forbearance provision of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act.Section 4022 of the CARES Act permits a borrower with a federally backed mortgage loan who is experiencing a financial hardship due to COVID–19 to request forbearance from his or her lender. Upon receiving the borrower’s attestation regarding his or her financial hardship, lenders and servicers are required to grant forbearance for up to 180 days regardless of delinquency status. The joint guidance seeks to clarify observed or anticipated actions by mortgage servicers concerning this provision.The statutory language allows for a forbearance period of “up to” 180 days. Servicers can grant forbearance for less than 180 days at a borrower’s request or with a borrower’s consent. If a borrower and servicer cannot agree on an appropriate forbearance term or servicer cannot reach the borrower due to the circumstances, servicers must default to the term requested by the borrower or 180 days.Borrowers do not need to prove financial hardship to qualify for forbearance. The exclusive requirement for forbearance under the CARES Act is the borrower’s attestation of hardship. Accordingly, servicers may not require information supporting the need for forbearance, but they may work with borrowers to better understand their financial situation as long as borrowers are not misled or dissuaded from seeking forbearance and any information obtained does not affect the servicer’s forbearance.Additionally, servicers and originators cannot refuse to provide forbearance if requested in accordance with the CARES Act Examiners will evaluate communications between borrowers and their servicers or originators to see if servicers attempted to steer borrowers away from requesting CARES Act forbearance.Examiners will review mandatory closing attestation to see if originators are requiring statements from borrowers designed to dissuade them from later requesting CARES Act forbearance.

OL’ TIME RELIGION: Troy Nutrition Center choir keeps tradition

first_imgLatest Stories “Not everybody sings in the choir, but just about everybody sings along when the choir sings those two songs,” said Shelia Deveridge, Center director. “You can look around and they’ll be playing dominoes or shuffling cards and singing along. When our choir sings, everybody sings.”Betty Sanders and Ronnie Atwell are not members of the choir, but they have a deep appreciation for the music they grew up in with in church.Sanders is a member of the Church of Christ and Atwell is Baptist so their backgrounds in church music is different, yet the same.“In the Church of Christ, we don’t play instruments,” Sanders said. “We believe the music should come from your heart. The harmonizing of voices is a beautiful. But we sing many of the same hymns and they all have the sound of the poor folks that sang them so long ago. It’s a different sound from what we here in some churches today and to me it’s beautiful.”Atwell said she grew up with the “old songs” and that’s the music she still enjoys.“I like the old-time singing and the old-time preaching where God gives the preachers the words to say and they don’t have to read it off a piece of paper.”Deveridge said the old-time church music has a special place in the hearts of many people, especially senior adults.“This is the music they grew up with and they are often overcome with joy and sentimental emotions when they hear it sung. ‘Amazing Grace’ is one song they all love. That’s always the last song the choir sings. They get in a circle and join hands to sing to the Lord and it’s like they are back in church those many years ago.”Deveridge said there are just some things that are too precious to let go.“You can’t throw the old stuff away,” she said. “The things that brought you over will keep you in the tomorrows.” You Might Like THE CLAY BUDDIES: Potters mine their own clay for ceramics The Pottersville Potters, better known as the clay buddies, mine clay for their pottery from embankments along dirt roads all… read more Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Md: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch) Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

Girl sneaks $350 toy order on Amazon, mom has her donate items to children’s hospital

first_imgCourtesy Catherine Lunt(SALT LAKE CITY) — This 6-year-old girl has put our shopping game to shame.Katelyn Lunt, a first-grader from Utah, recently ordered $350 worth of Barbies and a toy pony from her mother’s Amazon account and now her mom is using it as a teachable moment.“Our family came home and the truck pulls up and all of these boxes are being pulled out of the truck,” mom Catherine Lunt told “Good Morning America.”She had no idea about her daughter’s online splurge.Lunt said that Katelyn was told she could order one Barbie as a prize for doing extra chores. Turns out, Katelyn had bought much more than that.While checking on another order, Lunt saw a few items had been ordered that she didn’t recognize and was able to cancel them. Two pages of items however, had already shipped.The family decided that they should donate the toys to kids at Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah.Amazon did not immediately respond to ABC’s request for comment on the Lunts’ story.But Katelyn is not the first child to spend lavlishly on the service.Last year, 6-year-old Brooke Neitzel of Dallas, Texas, used her parents’ Echo to buy a $160 dollhouse and four pounds of cookies.“I just asked her if she could order a dollhouse and some cookies,” Brooke told “GMA” at the time. “She said, ‘Do you want this?’ and I said yes.”Brooke’s parents also turned the incident into a learning experience by donating the dollhouse to a local children’s hospital.In regards to Brooke’s story, Amazon told ABC News in a statement in 2017, “You must ask Alexa to order a product and then confirm the purchase with a ‘yes’ response to purchase via voice. If you asked Alexa to order something on accident, simply say ‘no’ when asked to confirm. You can also manage your shopping settings in the Alexa app, such as turning off voice purchasing or requiring a confirmation code before every order.”The company did not indicate whether it is taking steps to make it harder for children to access the Echo without an adult’s permission.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

BYU rallies to beat Tennessee 29-26 in OT

first_img Associated Press September 7, 2019 /Sports News – Local BYU rallies to beat Tennessee 29-26 in OT Written by Tags: BYU Cougars Football FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailKNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Ty’Son Williams scored a 5-yard touchdown run in the second overtime after BYU made a stunning drive for a game-tying field goal in the closing seconds of regulation as the Cougars edged Tennessee 29-26 on Saturday.BYU (1-1) rallied from a 13-3 halftime deficit and forced overtime when Zach Wilson’s 64-yard completion to Micah Simon set up Jake Oldroyd’s third field goal of the night — a 33-yarder with one second left.The Cougars got the ball first in overtime and scored on Zach Wilson’s 14-yard touchdown pass to Talon Shumway. Tennessee tied it when Jarrett Guarantano found Jauan Jennings across the middle for a 13-yard completion.Tennessee opened the second overtime session by settling for Brent Cimaglia’s fourth field goal of the night, a 40-yarder that gave the Vols a 26-23 lead.BYU then sealed the win on Williams’ bruising touchdown run. The South Carolina graduate transfer appeared to be stopped just a few yards short of the end zone, but he kept running and finally got across the goal line with some help from his linemen.Williams ended the night with 92 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 17 carries. Wilson was 19 of 29 for 232 yards.Tennessee’s Ty Chandler rushed for 154 yards on 26 carries, while Jauan Jennings had four catches for 88 yards and two touchdowns. That still wasn’t enough for the Volunteers, who fell to 0-2 for the first time since dropping their first six games in 1988.For most of the night, it appeared Tennessee would win in regulation.BYU was facing third-and-6 from its own 20 with less than 20 seconds left when Wilson threw deep to Simon, who caught the pass just beyond midfield and raced into the red zone before Alontae Taylor finally brought him down.After Wilson spiked the ball with five seconds left, Oldroyd kicked a 33-yard field goal that barely slipped inside the right upright.Tennessee had taken the early lead by capitalizing on a fourth-down gamble, enabling the Vols to score a touchdown on their opening drive for the first time in Jeremy Pruitt’s 14-game coaching tenure.The Vols faced fourth-and-3 from the BYU 5-yard line when Pruitt passed up a chip-shot field goal. Jarrett Guarantano threw a pass into traffic that was deflected by BYU linebacker Kavika Fonua and landed in the arms of Jennings.Tennessee stayed ahead and controlled both sides of the line of scrimmage for most of the night, though missed opportunities enabled BYU to hang around.THE TAKEAWAYBYU: Wilson showed late in regulation what he’s capable of doing when he has time to throw, but the offensive line must do a better job of protecting him. Wilson was sacked four times and was pressured all night. BYU’s inability to give Wilson time to throw was particularly concerning because Tennessee’s defensive line struggled last week and had no returning starters. … The Cougars must play the first half of next week’s game against Southern California without defensive lineman Devin Kaufusi, who was ejected for targeting in the fourth quarter.Tennessee: A young team showed it still must learn how to win as it somehow failed to close out a game it had controlled for most of the night. Tennessee also needs better production from Guarantano, whose interception early in the second half set up a BYU touchdown that helped the Cougars get back into the game.UP NEXTBYU hosts Southern California on Saturday.Tennessee hosts Football Championship Subdivision program Chattanooga on Saturday.last_img read more
