A roof’s main function is to protect a house, but homeowners may also consider appearance and design when choosing a covering for their home. One design more commonly seen on barns and storage buildings is the gambrel, or barn, style roof. Gambrel roofs have been used since the 1700s and can be a good option for homeowners looking for extra space.
Small garden hoop houses protect plants from early or late season frosts, allowing you to extend your growing season by several weeks. These arched row covers are typically constructed of PVC piping. The plastic curtains hold in heat and keep frost at bay, although they can cause the interior of the hoop house to overheat on a warm or sunny day. Raising the plastic curtains allows the excess heat to escape and provides needed ventilation. Adding a drop down mechanism allows you to close the hoop house quickly when your garden is threatened by frost.
Many construction methods use standard material sizes and installation methods to create uniform walls, floors and roof pitch dimensions. Studs are dimensional boards specifically intended for use in constructing walls. Unlike other boards, studs are all pre-cut to an exact length to allow the builder to frame walls quickly and efficiently. Not all walls are the same size, however, so studs come in different sizes. The architect who drew the plans and local building codes will make the final determination on stud size for any given house, but you can count on some general guidelines.
Building permits are intended to ensure that all home improvements are performed in a safe manner and that any home modifications fit with zoning regulations. While some elect to make modifications or repairs to the interior of their home without permits, as these repairs will not be visible from the road and not likely noticed by those checking for permit compliance, doing so is often illegal. To ensure that you stay within the letter of the law, educate yourself on when a permit is required and follow those regulations.
A cubby house is a play house for kids. You can build one from scratch or order kits that include all the necessary supplies for you to assemble.

Brick as a primary home building material has a distinctive look that some homeowners find appealing. But the rate of brick home building has been dropping steadily since the 1970s. In 1973, 421,000 new brick houses were built in the United States compared to 113,000 new brick houses in 2010, according to the U.S. Census Bureau website. The many disadvantages of building a house out of brick might be contributing to its dropping popularity.
Pouring the footer is the first step in the construction of a new home, right after the excavation. When the heavy equipment operator digs out the hole for the basement, she will also dig trenches about 1 foot deep and 2 feet wide for the footers. Check with your local building authority because additional regulations might apply in your community. Footers serve as structural bases on which the weight load of your house rests. They offer more support than concrete foundation walls alone can provide. Footing depth for crawl space foundations is determined by the frost line in your community.
Building a home gives you control over all of the design elements, but it also means lots of decisions and potential budget problems before you are able to move into your new home. Building a home with your partner often adds more complications if you have different priorities.

Because it is possible to see through the light shades used to represent the elevation, it is possible to place a large amount of information on a tint map, including location labels. No additional tools or information are required to read a tint map as all that is required to read the map is provided on the map itself.
Those who raise goats love doing so. Bad experiences are likely the result of someone trying to raise goats without the knowledge, experience and equipment they need to be successful. Many goats will leap over -- or squeeze under -- a non-electric fence. For a goat to be fully aware of the price for wandering too close to those charged lines, they have to experience it firsthand. You need to be willing to be cruel to be kind in this matter, as a wandering goat can get eaten by predators or killed by a frustrated neighbor.
Birds sleep in roost boxes in the winter to stay warm, and in nesting boxes in the spring and summer during the breeding season. Unlike nesting boxes, roosting boxes lack ventilation holes and entrances near the top; this is so heat will not escape through the holes. Roost boxes also have perches inside for the birds. Perhaps the easiest and cheapest way to create a roost for birds is to modify an existing birdhouse for the winter.
LEGO is a versatile building system that lets you make just about anything you can imagine, including a taxi for your LEGO city.

The Australians have developed policies and procedures to go with catching wild goats that can be applied in America. The government police of New…
There are few more pleasant sights than that of a garden populated with colorful twittering birds. And there are few better ways to encourage them to frequent your garden than by building a bird shelter. A bird shelter will not only greatly benefit the aesthetics of your garden, but it will also benefit the garden birds that use it. Many of these birds are becoming endangered and, while many people take sightings of them for granted, their numbers are rapidly dwindling. Providing them with shelter and food makes things much easier for these welcome additions to our gardens.
Since ancient times, sand hourglasses have provided a simple way of measuring the passage of time.

Although most hornets and their wasp relatives prefer to build their nests outdoors for easy access to prey, they occasionally build their nests in your home in protected areas such as attics, wall voids or similar areas. If the hornets and wasps are in your home, they pose much more of a stinging risk than those outside of your home. Unlike bees, wasps and hornets can sting repeatedly, although they typically only do so if you are within 30 feet of their nest or you handle them in some way. The decision to kill them should be weighed with factors…
Pine rocklands -- also called rock pinelands, rimrock pines or, in the Bahamas, pineyards -- are some of the most biologically diverse communities in South Florida and the Caribbean. Spatially similar to the extensive pine flatwoods that cover much of the Atlantic-Gulf Coastal Plain in the Southeast, these subtropical woodlands differ in overlying rugged, pockmarked benches of limestone instead of loose sands and clays. Made rare by logging and especially development, pine rocklands are notably protected in Everglades National Park, Big Cypress National Preserve and refuges on the Florida Keys.

Elevation maps, also known as topographic maps, are spatial representations of the Earth's surface. These representations are conventionally displayed with contour lines labelled with changing elevation values. Contour lines represent the relief of a particular area. A steeper surface on the landscape will contain concentrated amounts of contour lines with elevations increasing quickly over short distances. Flatter areas contain fewer contour lines. In addition to terrain data, elevation maps provide a significant amount of information to the user, including knowledge of surrounding terrain, distances to landmarks, waterway and road locations. Learning the basics of reading an elevation map is a…
The female mason bee's entire focus is to seek out an adequate environment so the next generation of mason bees will survive. During the four to six weeks of her life, she visits trees, flowers and vegetables in an area no more than 100 yards from her nest, which she builds in long, narrow holes. She gathers pollen and nectar she needs for her eggs, pollinating the flowers in the process. Mason bee shelters mimic her preferred nest sites, making sure the mason bee spends her time visiting crops in a specific area requiring pollination.
Different types of wasps and hornets build various types of nests. When you find one, "What kind of wasp made that?" may be the first question you ask yourself, and it's one you can answer after a little research and detective work. Trying to find a wasp or hornet that inhabits the nest will yield you quicker identification results, but characteristics of the nest such as size, exposed or unexposed, location and height can help you determine at least which family the wasps or hornets belong to.
Screech owls are a common sight throughout the U.S., southern Canada and Mexico. They are small, nocturnal, woodland dwellers. The owls mate from mid-March to mid-May. The screech owl mates for life and nests in naturally occurring holes in trees. The owls will also utilize old woodpecker and northern flicker nests. The holes will ideally be 7 feet to 20 feet above the ground. Screech owls are protected and may not be kept as pets, but you can help to conserve these owls by providing them with suitable nesting sites.
Crafting hourglasses is a great way to interact with your children at home, and a budget friendly way to help children understand the concept of time. Hourglasses are commonly made to measure minutes and hours. Children will have a great time gathering the items needed for this project, and most children rarely miss a chance to play with sand. The best thing is that you can probably find materials lying around the house that you can use to make an hourglass.
