The house, which covers an area of 320 square meters, was built as a single level on a 6-acre estate. This house belongs to a married couple, the wife is an artist It was built right next to the old family home on the same estate, as a frequent hosting space for family members – their children and grandchildren. The couple went as far as planning a well-equipped master bedroom for the grandchildren, so that they would be able to stay over in maximum comfort.
I’ve never seen a pop culture phenomenon end as perfectly as Avengers: Endgame. As a bookend to 11 years of superhero movies, I’m not sure if it could have been done better. For me it brings to mind the final episode of The Wire or Return of the King. There’s just so much emotional payoff I was literally spent after watching it.
When the credits ran I sank back in my chair in complete awe of what I’d just experienced. Hours later, I’m still reeling. Everything works here. The cameos, the humor, the battles, the story. I cannot wait to watch it again.
Best moment: I won’t spoil it here, of course, but the best moment in this film is something I’d been waiting to see since these movies started to connect. It’s such a glorious moment of pure comic book fan bliss. Problem is, there are at least five of these moments in this film, so good luck guessing which it is.
Home inspection training programs vary by state requirements but generally include both educational materials and field training to become a home inspector. They may include residential and commercial real estate inspector training or just residential training.
These programs generally train inspectors on how to generate comprehensive inspection reports, use home inspection software, and properly inspect the systems of a home. Continue reading to learn about what home inspector programs offer and which one is right for you.
material online or in a classroom and some type of field study. They’re designed to train a home inspector on what to look for during an inspection, how to interact with the homeowner, properly write an inspection report, and use home inspection software.
Who Should Attend a Home Inspector Training Program?
A home inspector training program would be beneficial for:
- An aspiring home inspector
- A home inspector who moved states and needs to be certified in their new state
- A home inspector who needs to complete required continuing education hours
- A real estate professional who wants to learn more about the home inspection process
How Long Does It Take to Become a Home Inspector?
The time it takes to become a home inspector usually ranges
Homeowners Adam and Beth, along with their two elementary-school-age sons, were recent transplants from the Bay Area when they bought this 1906-built Craftsman in Minneapolis. It checked all the boxes: historic and charming, yet updated. “We’re not the DIY type who can take on bringing a 100-year-old house up to modern expectations,” says Adam.
While there was no need to renovate, Homeowners Adam and Beth wanted assistance designing thoughtful, functional common rooms that everyone in the family could enjoy. They also needed to fill out their furnishings, which now felt sparse compared to when they lived in an economic California space. “Our home is a blend of 1906 Craftsman architecture and a modern extension. We wanted to integrate the two styles into a cohesive balance,” says Adam. “Yet we didn’t want to get trapped with a period look, either stuck in the past or too much of today’s fashion.”
Engineering design is more than hard skills. This is a demanding field, and success requires a strong balance of technical know-how and interpersonal skills. That’s why today we bring you three soft skills essential to engineering design and how to hone them.
What Are Soft Skills?
Before we take a look at the soft skills essential to engineering design, let’s define soft skills.
Soft skills are interpersonal attributes and behaviors that help build relationships, solve problems, and communicate effectively.
By contrast, hard skills are technical abilities and knowledge that are indispensable to tackle a task. Some examples of hard skills include degrees, computer skills, and design skills.
While hard skills are particularly important in engineering design, success in this field can only be obtained by balancing both types of skills.
3 Soft Skills Essential to Engineering Design
Even the most brilliant hard skills are of little use if a design engineer can’t communicate their findings, or ask for what they need to achieve the results expected of them. Especially when dealing with clients, misunderstandings can occur easily, leading to delays, reworks, and cost overruns. Some steps that design engineers can take to hone their communication skills include:
Focus on active listening
Pay attention to body language
When writing, proofread and reread your messages
Make it a point to ask questions to ensure that you understood what the other person is trying to say
If you are a design engineer or aspire to become one, chances are that you grew up taking machines apart to understand how they work. This is a common manifestation of curiosity, another soft skill essential to succeed in the world of engineering design. While you may be naturally curious about machines and mechanisms, it’s important to broaden the scope of your curiosity. These are some ideas to help you do just that:
Read about a wide variety of topics
Exchange ideas with people from different backgrounds than yours
Leadership skills are essential if you aspire to reach an executive position. A great leader knows how to motivate, guide, and support their team. And while these abilities may appear closer to psychology than to engineering, there are things you can do to improve your leadership skills as a design engineer:
Cultivate critical thinking
Seek advice from other leaders
Take a leadership course

Cover Sheet, Index & Site Plan: The cover sheet features an elevation of the exterior of the house that shows approximately how the home will look when built. The index lists the order of the drawings included, with page numbers for easy reference. The site plan is a scaled footprint of the house to help determine how the home will be placed on the building site.
Wall Sections & Notes: This section shows section cuts of the exterior wall from the roof down through the foundation. These wall sections specify the home’s construction and building materials. They also show the number of stories, type of foundation and the construction of the walls. Roofing materials, insulation, floor framing, wall finishes and elevation heights are all shown and referenced.
Typical Details & Notes: This section addresses all the facets and typical details you will want to include in your home, with the exception of local building code requirements. Architectural and structural elements are detailed, including: window and door components, railings, balusters, wood stairs and headers, interior walls, interior partitions, concrete steps and footings (if applicable).
Foundation layout Plan: This sheet provides a fully dimensioned and noted foundation layout, including references to footings, pads, and support walls. For plans with a basement, additional walls and columns may be shown. Basement plans come with a floor framing layout which may be included in this section or the floor framing section, depending on the plan. *Actual structural information should be obtained by a locally licensed engineer for your specific site location.
Detailed Floor Plan: This section provides detailed floor plan drawings and descriptions of all the elements that will be included on each floor of the home. The home’s exterior footprint, openings and interior rooms are carefully dimensioned. Important features are noted including built-ins, niches and appliances. All doors and windows are identified. Typically this section also includes the square footage information.

Floor Framing Plans: Homes with a basement or crawl space will have a floor framing plan for the first floor. Multi-story homes will have floor framing plans for upper floors as well. The floor framing plans provide structural information such as the joist location, spacing and direction, as well as the floor heights and stair openings.
Roof Layout: The overall layout and necessary details for roof design are provided in this section. If trusses are used, we suggest using a local truss manufacturer to design your roof trusses to comply with your local codes and regulations.
Exterior Elevations: Exterior elevations are drawings that show how the finished home will approximately look. In this section, elevations of the front, rear and left and right sides of the home are shown. Exterior materials, details and heights are noted on these drawings.
Building Section & Details: This section will illustrate the important changes in the floor, ceiling and roof heights or the relationship of different floors to one another. Interior elements of rooms and areas, such as columns, arches, headers and soffits, are also discernible and easier to visualize in a cross section.
Interior Elevations: These interior elevations show the specific details and design of the kitchen, bathrooms, utility rooms, fireplaces, bookcases, built-in units and other special interior features. The interior elevations vary based on the complexity of the home.
Electrical Plan: This section shows an electrical plan that will enhance functionality and highlight the unique architectural features of the home.
I am an adult, so naturally, I at least try to be responsible about money. At the end of each month, I review my recurring expenses, consider cutting back, and then change nothing. But in recent months, in addition to regular payments to Netflix, Hulu, Uber, Amazon, Big Avocado Toast, and my 401(k) (maybe? I think?), I’ve also begun spending a sizable chunk of change on the iPhone interior-decor game Design Home.
For the uninitiated, Design Home lets you design rooms, and then other players (seemingly entirely women, based on their avatars) vote on them, which affects your overall points score as a “designer.” As many have pointed out, it’s like the part of the Sims when you design houses, except the game uses furniture from real designers, and instead of just typing “rosebud” and getting unlimited money you have to pay for the furniture out of your CitiBank savings account labeled “ANNA DO NOT SPEND — FOR EMERGENCIES ONLY.”
I swear, I never thought I would be the kind of person who makes in-game purchases on a home-design app, and I’m still grappling with what that says about me. Since I started playing about a month ago I’d guess that I’ve spent about $50, which – considering the game’s prices — is kind of a remarkable show of restraint. For example: $1.99 of real-life money will get you about $3,000 of in-game cash. While that’s enough for some very basic furniture, a really dope designer sectional can cost as much as $10,000 in Design Home dollars. Do I feel a rush of shame every time I spend $1.99 of my real money so I can purchase a virtual tufted West Elm armoire to “style a modern bedroom for an art director’s penthouse in Portland, Oregon”? Of course I do. But I’m comforted by the fact that I’m not alone.
In summer 2017 the game was already extremely popular, averaging a million daily users, but within the last year it seems to have become a favorite among people I follow elsewhere online. Audrey Gelman, the founder of The Wing, told me that so far, she’s spent $50 on Design Home and is in a group text called “Design Home Homies,” created so she and her friends can send each other their best work. “Kathy Kuo haunts my dreams,” she added, referring to one of the real-life designers who sells a lot of furniture “in game.”
Each design project comes with a charming set-up — for instance “after graduating from college, this marine biologist was thrilled to find a job right here in the area” and she wants you to “design a coastal living room for her charming seaside home.” It also comes with specific stipulations — include “five coastal items,” for example, or “pair a modern Arhaus bed with a black metal desk.” Run low on funds, and you’ll find yourself unable to fulfill the challenge or else committing unforgivable aesthetic crimes, like pairing a red tartan rug with a tie-dye pouf, because that’s all you have in your inventory. End up in this situation and you’ll be met with a lowly 3.5 star rating and your own shame spiral.
I’m not exactly sure what it is about the game that keeps me coming back for more. Maybe it’s those bizarrely evocative little micro-fictions about the rooms that let me, just for a minute, inhabit another life where I can afford nice furniture and/or real-estate. Maybe it’s images of real furniture, which the game conveniently reminds you are actually available for purchase, to have delivered to your real home, which make me feel like I’m actually learning about design and might one day put my newfound love of quilted headboards to use. Mostly, I think it’s fact that the game play is a perfect mix of creativity and strategy, simultaneously meditative and dopamine-fueled. Each room is its own unique puzzle. You get to be creative, but only within constraints (financial, rule-based, and the fact that you can only place a table exactly where the game deems a table is needed).
Here’s a room I made earlier. It’s not perfect, but I needed two orange items and I could only afford one of the cheapest orange couches the game had without ponying up another $1.99 to the Game Gods, and I’d already splurged on a $4.99 top-up to get a Cynthia Rowley floral armchair set for my last room; so it was either use the weird geometric beige rug or spend 3,500 worth of diamonds (yes, there are two currencies, don’t ask) on more appropriate carpeting. You see? Sacrifices.

When it comes to interior design, computers are not just for professional decorators. There are many online tools that can help amateur decorators choose hues, develop interior color schemes and even design entire rooms.
Online tools that help you choose interior colors come from many different sources, but most can be grouped into two categories: color generators and color viewers or visualizer tools. Color generators are most helpful for identifying colors and color palettes, incorporating your inputs and preferences. You can upload a photo, for example, and the tool will scan it and tell you what colors are in it.
Some online color generators let you choose colors from a color wheel. Others allow you to upload a photo or other image to develop your own color schemes. If you are looking for a way to make decorating the perfect room a little easier, try one of these great color generators.

Turning Your Color Scheme Into Reality

Treehouses aren’t just for little kids and family backyards anymore—they’re for actually living in. Two friends in Switzerland decided to finally make this dream a reality, and were able to build an entire treehouse in just a few days with the help of German architecture firm Baumraum.
The treehouse in question was prefabricated in Germany before being sent to the Swiss town of Halden, near Lake Constance, for its new residents. Upon arrival, it was put together in just a few days—and it’s the perfect getaway for nature lovers. The light-filled interior offers views of the surrounding forest, and an outdoor deck makes the perfect perch for hanging outdoors.
On its website, Baumraum states that “several studies with different roof shapes, facade materials and layout variants were developed and evaluated” to create the perfect treehouse for their two clients—ultimately, a sleep black exterior was chosen with a pitched roof for the classic treehouse experience.
(including the built-in furniture) is swathed in oiled oak, giving it a calm and elegant vibe that fits perfectly with a getaway in the trees. The lofted sleeping area sits above the integrated pantry and comes equipped with a skylight, allowing the owners to look up at the starry skies at night.
Arguably the best features of the treehouse, though, are the floor to ceiling windows that look out over an orchard and down to the nearby river—what’s more relaxing than a view over running water?
If you want your very own luxury treehouse for yourself like this one, you’ll have to contact Baumraum—otherwise, you can just continue dreaming!
