3 reasons hard wood flooring

When it comes to home or office remodeling, many are aware that it can be bother an exciting and daunting experience requiring a multitude of decision. Some decisions are as simple as choosing an easily replaceable paint color, but once entering the realm of more permanent areas like flooring choices, options need to be weighed carefully.

A Room With A View – How Does Yours Compare

Homes With Amazing Views

Where would we be without windows? Without a view for a start and this made me wonder about the homes across the world that have amazing views.

I decided to put together a collection of amazing homes with views to die for. All of these views would be totally lost and unseen without the simple glass window.

Glass portals are designed to give us light, a view and can be a spectacle in their own right. Using different shapes, colours and materials they create drama and personality into a room. The most impressive windows are best enjoyed without blinds, shutters or curtains allowing you to appreciate the whole window and of course the view.

The first thing I do when I go on holiday is head straight to the balcony/window to check out the view, let’s be honest no one wants to look out and see a brick wall!

Enjoying the view from a hotel or building doesn’t require staying in the pent house or being on the top floor, but it does require a window!

The Amazing Double Glazed Glass Snowboard

Glass is one of the most notoriously fragile materials and you wouldn’t use it for certain applications. So the idea of having a glass snowboard commissioned may sound like a crazy idea, but these guys did just that.

Dave Lee founder of Signal Snow Boards travels to Breshia Italy home to some of the best glass makers in the world to create the first handmade glass snow board.

The process took 5 days and here’s what happened…..

Using a single square piece of glass they cut it into the same shape and size as their “Park Series” snow board.

Glass technician Andrea explains that by using water in the cutting process the water keeps the glass cool so it doesn’t shatter, two glass snowboards were cut and then they were baked in an oven for 24 hours.

The oven temperature was 580 degrees celsius which heated the flat pieces of glass and melted them over the snowboard template which had been specially made for this challenge; this gave the board a tip and tail just like a real snow board.Next came a very tricky part, adding the inserts for the binding mounting. The
