PostHeaderIcon My house improvement design

In the early 90’s when I was still an on-the-job trainee in my engineering course, I was tasked to install veener wood sheets in one of the construction sites. As much as I tried to install it perfectly the paper back wood veneers often have bubbles or crack . The result is undesirable.

Now I realized it was not my fault, it was how the veneer was made. The paper back interacted with the glue or adhesive made the bubbles. Thanks to modern technology, new flexible sheet veneers, with wood-on-wood back, and the unique “bubble-free” back came onto the market. While most flexible wood veneers at that time had been less than 10 millimetres in thickness, the new sheet veneers were as thick as 22 mil.

Why I am blogging you about this wood sheets ? It’s because, I am on the process of looking for veneer wood sheets for a house improvement design I am making right now.

PostHeaderIcon Architectural Finishes that are Eco-friendly

Finally the construction of our church mezzanine is finally completed. This was a rush project which was approved by the board to be completed before our church anniversary. We saw the need to construct a balcony which will occupy 50-80 seats as we observed that there are more and more people coming to church already. Thank God we were able to complete the project in three weeks , just in time with our church 26th Anniversary Celebration last Sept. 30,2012.

Now, we are planning to finish the architectural designs such as moldings , final painting coats and railings. As the supervising engineer, I am recommending some finishes like glass blocks and composite railings. Glass blocks will not only beautify the area but also help with the illumination. The composite railing will give a Corinthian touch too which will blend with the existing structures and furniture of the sanctuary.

For our building improvement in other churches, we would be glad if they will include some   Accent Building Products  like the skylight sun panels for portion in the roof , the acrylic block windows and Vinyl columns that never needs painting, are load-bearing and are easy to install. This kind of structure are not only modern but adopt eco-friendly living.
