常见建筑风格 (conventional architecture styles)

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(not relate 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经历逐渐加深的,还记得当年搬进新家的第一件事就是砍掉一颗后院的李子树,理由是为了“腾”地方,现在看来是多么无知。当初进入当地园艺店 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,自己参与设计与打理。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,缺少了些生活的气息。温哥华市政府对First Shaughnessy 和RS-5 (非outright申请)...

Average Price, Median Price, MLS® HPI Price Explained

Average Price, Median Price, MLS® HPI Price Explained

在房地产行业经常会遇到不同的价格表述,比如 Mean Average Price(均价),Median Price (中间价)和 HPI Price(基准价),有时让人有些疑惑,我们来逐一解释、比较一下。 (Mean)Average Price 最为直观,是指在一段时间内销售总价再除以销售的数量。而为了得到 Median Price(中间价),需要把在一段时间内的所有相同类型的销售数据从小到大排序,如果销售总数是偶数,Median Price 取相对低的那一半的最高价;如果销售数量是奇数,那么 Median Price...

Farmer House Construction Stymied

Farmer House Construction Stymied

Richmond 市府去年底通过了限制在农庄地上独立屋建造的最大面积为4,300平方尺的法令,我还写过一篇关于Richmond农庄地的博客。 今天在 Vancouver Sun(温哥华太阳报)的一则报道则有些让人大跌眼镜,可见政府急了也跳墙! 这篇报道的标题为“Richmond farmer's home construction stymied by new regulations”, 报导一开始有两个关键词: stymied (被阻挠的)和 rescinded (撤回)a building...

”都挺好“刚刚热播完毕,据说大结局的收视率超过了春晚,不得不说是相当成功的一部剧作。国内外都有不少热评,甚至也引起英文媒体的注意,可见该剧触及到很多深层次的问题。 今日偶在留园网上看到一篇文章 “我们都错怪苏大强了! 三千万中国人都跟他一样” ,尤为感触!很多人打不开该网页,我就在此转载一下吧。 苏大强得的是阿尔茨海默氏病...

Found Myself-A Star Is Born

Found Myself-A Star Is Born

When I first heard this song “Found Myself” by Venice Qin last night, it made me sleepless. The song is now officially live on Spotify and iTunes, and this is such a big deal for her. I was touched in ways I can’t explain easily. Have you ever lost in your life? I...
