DESIGN & BUILD

I have always been passionate about designing and building homes in my community. To design a home calls for a careful combination of a client’s needs, as well as fundamental respect and understanding of the community’s local history and culture. To build a home, as opposed to a house, requires solid expertise, full commitment, and attention to every details.  And building homes is what I do.

谈谈房屋漏水问题

谈谈房屋漏水问题

近日头条之一温哥华的标志性建筑 Vancouver House 哗啦啦地漏水,起因据说是 29 层楼的一个 Gasket Failure,这个 Gasket 就是水管橡皮胶垫,成本最多几块钱,却造成不可估量的损失,还好没坏在 49 楼,否则损失更是几何数量级地增长。有人说买保险的重要性,我不否认,房屋保险像块遮羞布,买后心里踏实些,但花了钱最好别用到,否则以后想高价买人家保险公司还不一定愿意卖给你。防患于未然才是关键,足够了解自己的房产,才能睡得踏实。下面通过我多年(掐指一算吓我一跳,17...

常见建筑风格 (conventional architecture styles)

一直以来想总结一下 House Architecture,作为自己的工作手册之类的,但这个话题不小,而且还蛮深奥,开头容易收尾难。在这里就触及一些常见的Conventional 的风格(关于 Unconventional Style,以后有机会再聊)。 下面总结的 16 类风格 (按字母顺序排列),你会发现在周围的房屋设计中,大都是 2 种或者 2 种以上的风格的结合体,有些很漂亮、舒服,有些就不是很搭(Unelated to the...

浅谈 Residential Landscaping

浅谈 Residential Landscaping

对园艺的认知与喜爱也是随着移民十几年的生活经历而逐渐改变与加深的,记得当年搬入新家的第一件事居然是砍掉后院的一颗的李子树,理由是为了“腾”地方,现在看来是如此的年“少”轻狂啊。当年进入园艺店 GardenWorks,看得是一头雾水,还有不熟悉的英文,不知从何下手。慢慢地,开始喜欢花园,并参与设计与打理。看到很多新建房屋,做完 Fence,铺好草皮,再种一棵树,花园就算完成了,不免单调了些。温哥华市府对 First Shaughnessy 和 RS-5 区的发展申请(非 Outright...
