Sustainable Building Materials

Sustainable Building Materials

Sustainable Building Materials – Research suggests that one of the biggest causes of carbon emissions into the environment is the home. Through the use of non-environmentally friendly building materials in the construction of central heating and electrical systems, most homes contribute in a small way to the problem of carbon emissions, which with the total number of homes across the world equates to one big problem. This is why the ‘go green’ movement is catching on with regard to our homes. What this actually means is that sustainable building materials are becoming a popular choice in which to build the homes and ‘green’ energy such as solar or wind power are being used more often.

Using sustainable or green building materials is the major way in which our homes can be made more efficient and with lower emissions.

Novelty Clocks

Novelty Clocks

Novelty Clocks – The earliest surviving working novelty clocks were German automata made in Augsburg in the 1650s involving mechanical figures, either of human or animal form, which performed as the hour struck. They include dogs, and, most extraordinarily for the early date, cockerels which flapped their wings and opened and closed their mouth, often making a crowing sound. The earliest novelty clock in history is the celebrated crowing cock of the Strasbourg Cathedral clock, made in 1354 and now preserved in the Strasbourg Museum.

These astonishing pieces continued to be made until the 18th century, when they fell out of favor, but the novelty clock enjoyed a revival in the Black Forest area of Germany in the 19th century and included the pie-eating man who lifts a fork to his mouth on the hour.

Designing A Breakfast Nook

Designing A Breakfast Nook

Designing A Breakfast Nook – How to design a nice and functional breakfast nook? Does it have to be a certain size? Does it have to have windows? Do you have to eat breakfast there? The truth is that there are no hard and fast rules, but there are certain attributes that most breakfast nook areas have. For example, typically a nook will have some kind of seating area where the family members gather for informal meals. The table does not have to meet any specifications, but if there is no eating table then most people are not going to call the area a breakfast nook. They might call it a seating area or a sunroom.

The furniture that you use in the eat in kitchen is called a breakfast nook set. This furniture set typically consists of a table and some combination of chairs and benches.
