Our hydronic system runs with glycol (in PEX tubes) and as such never connects with any of the new water lines (copper). Did the old "gravity heat systems" use water? Glenbrow, built in 1940 was older than your home, but when we removed the concrete floor, we discovered deterioration in our water an...

Roderick, Please just answer one question of mine: How can you, a lover of organic architecture, not be totally appalled at Trump's assault on the environment? Obstructionism under President Obama was far worse and I would think seeing members of your own party in opposition to Trump's agenda, might...

I really hate auto correct sometimes. I knew it was Kentuck, just didn't edit my post :oops: I'm always changing Glenbrow from their corrected Glen Brow.

Sorry about that...corrected.

Kentuck Knob Dining Room Table

Part of Mr Wright's genius was in the functionality of space. I absolutely love how the Kentucky Knob dining room table can be broken into smaller functioning pieces: http://old.post-gazette.com/images2/20010623smWright5.jpg My daughter is a third year architecture student and her final project for ...

Having just purchased a lot of wood, we learned something from the deliverymen that we never knew, and I thought I'd share. In purchasing plywood for the entire house, we wanted wood from a single source and top grade (don't like knotty plywood). Previously I mentioned we were unable to acquire Doug...

Are #13 and #20 in conflict or am I not understanding them (most likely the case)? Extending the floor out through the walls to make the terrace part of the room and elevating the terrace slightly? Wouldn't that lead to draining toward the inside of the house?

DRN, Im sorry to read this and hope there is a way to determine where exactly the leak occurred and correct only that small section. Regarding copper pipes, we elected to use copper pipes for all drinking water after reading studies of leaching from PEX and used PEX only for the hydronic system. How...

That "gangly old man" as you so rudely refer to one of the most honest, compassionate and well respected leaders we have, seems to understand the issues that face this country better than others! I know exactly what I want and it was this speech from 2002 that convinced me as to who was a true leade...

Roderick, I hardly call my sources purveyors of conspiracy theory. Can you get more establishment than Bob Woodward, not only a noted writer, investigative journalist but naval intelligence? Not to mention that the NYT and Wa Po, papers that helped to sell the public the Iraq War, and also attempted...

Peter is correct, the two have nothing in common, but Trump had the street smarts to understand the importance of the populist positions during the campaign enough to ride the outsider label into the White House. He had no intention in delivering, although he may produce a few dead end coal jobs, bu...

Yes, Peter I believe it is justified, BUT I ALSO BELIEVE THERE NEEDS TO BE A FULL INVESTIGATION INTO THE PRIMARY! There was a coordinated effort to target young voters with registration changes disallowing them to participate in the primary. When they were allowed to vote, there was directives order...
