Builder in LEGO: my son
Construction time: 20 minutes
A design has staying power if it can be clearly translated in LEGO©. The question remains: why can’t we apply LEGO methodology to full scale buildings?

Running out of Room
Having trouble finding land for your new home or addition? Well with the world's current growth rate at about 1.3%, representing a doubling time of 54 years. We can expect the population of approximately 6 billion to become 12 billion by 2054…you might just have to look on the moon!
Just consider this –
- Design exercise completed on site
- Master plans and small design projects
- Design food for the masses
- Cash only
What do you all think?
Cardboard, it as ubiquitous as it gets, though this recycle friendly favorite seems to lack no boundaries as witnessed by the folks at Molo design. This Vancouver outfit has cleverly taken the banal day to day product and made it a vibrant household fixture. Fun or furniture, you decide?

The portion of your heating bill that goes right up the chimney from an open damper.
from an open damper from an open damper
We all love a fire in the fireplace especially around the holidays, just remember, once the fire is out, close that damper! Keeping the damper open is like keeping a 48-inch window wide open during the winter; it allows warm air to go right up the chimney.
Fireplace tid bit: The new MA energy code will no longer allow for open fireplaces for just this reason, all new home fire places will have front doors to control heat loss.
