The idea provides a Good project for restless do it yours Elfers who can to wait to get those outdoor chores. The idea is not unique a decorators do it All the time.

Decorators usually make a design on paper gradually transferring the pattern to the floor. It works Well if you Don t become ambitious. One decorator likes a simple big Circle with dots squares and smaller circles within the area. But another decorator likes involved All Over the floor designs that becomes a big project with plumb lines Cord Chalk and so on. Better to keep it simple if one is an Amateur. And the design should be inspired by the place where it will go. Floor painting in t a Job to be stuffed off. Paint experts advise using Good bristle brushes in sizes needed for the Job and they suggest letting one color dry for 24 hours before another is House of the week new second Home with exciting look by Andy Lang Here a a creative and exciting contemporary House designed As a second Home but with All the facilities and space for year round use. An interesting visual result is formed by the exterior features a two White roofs one High one Long and the Wood vertical siding that can be either Cedar or Redwood. Adding to the structural casualness is the spacious deck at the rear and one Side with a Carport at the other Side. The deck partially covered with a Pergola adds an abundance of space for outdoor living and dining. The stairs leading to the second floor is an added feature which with its open risers and open space underneath. Acts As a Large piece of functional sculpture. A bit of drama is introduced by the second floor Balcony which overlooks the dining area and services the three upstairs bedrooms. A rustic two Way Stone fireplace opens to both the living and dining rooms. It is centrally located and quickly visible on entering the House. The Kitchen is especially designed for informal living. On the dining room Side of the Kitchen is an 8-foot-Long House Chimes easy to fix even if you have never made a single repair around the House there s one project you can tackle with Confidence a the a replacement of the outside Pushbutton that sets off the Bell or Chimes on the inside. For one thing its an electrical Job you can handle without turning off the electricity. That a because the Bell and Chimes operate on a Low voltage current supplied either by the regular Power Supply reduced by a transformer or Bat Tieres still in use in Many older houses. The Pushbutton is held in place by two screws. Remove those two screws and you will discover two wires connected to two terminal screws inside the Button cover. That is the two wires should be connected. If one of them in to you have located the trouble already and reconnecting it should solve the problem. If both wires Are properly wound around the two terminal screws place the Blade of your screwdriver across the two screws. If the Bell rings or the Chimes sound you know the wiring and the Power Supply Are Okay and that therefore the troublemaker is the Button equipment. Before deciding to replace the Button do two things. Clean the contacts around the Button with sandpaper or Emery and do the same with the ends of the two wires since either or both May be dirty or corroded. With the wire reconnected push the Button and see what happens. If the a Bell does not ring or the Chimes do not sound Bridge the Gap Between the two terminal screws once again. If it rings then you know for certain that a new Pushbutton is needed. In buying a new Pushbutton take the old one with you. Choose one of the same size or slightly larger. If you get a smaller one it will leave uncovered part of the area where the old one was a and you la have to do a retouching Job to make everything match. If you get one too Large it May not fit the panel to which it is to be attached. But that is something you la have to decide for yourself. There actually might be enough room to buy a much larger and different Type replacement should you so desire. Fortunately when a Bell fails to ring the trouble nearly always is in the Pushbutton which Means a simple repair is possible. Should the Bell or Chimes now work when a screwdriver Blade is placed across the terminal screws As previously explained the fault could be the the Bell itself the Chimes the wiring or the Power Supply. Counter with cabinets Hung from the ceiling. The Al purpose counter can be used As a pass through or for casual dining. On the opposite Kitchen Wall is All the equipment in a convenient arrangement. A sliding Glass door at one end of the Kitchen leads to the dining deck. On the opposite end of the Kitchen is the Entrance from the mud room and laundry. From this room one can enter the bathroom which is conveniently equipped with a Shower stall. The bathroom is also entered from the Entrance foyer.
