Every spring, people in most industrialized nations set their clocks an hour forward in the spring, and an hour back in the fall. Early proponents of daylight savings promoted it as a way to save energy on evening incandescent lighting, but modern research shows no real energy savings accruing from the practice. Many seasonal businesses support daylight savings as a way to allow more lit hours after the workday. But those of us who struggle with time adjustments can fill in the downsides: Missed meetings, disrupted sleep patterns, and record keeping complexities.
Regardless of how one feels about daylight savings ...View Entire Post
Scarlett O’Hara first caught sight of Rhett Butler when descending the grand staircase of Twelve Oaks when Gone With the Wind debuted in 1939.

That’s why we’ve decided to feature some of our gorgeous home plans with staircases that would fit seamlessly into any Hollywood movie. From staircases with hand-crafted Mission-style posts to modern designs with custom stained-glass landings, we’re ...View Entire Post

About 90% of American houses built in the 1950s were ranches, or ramblers as they’re sometimes known. That had dropped to 80% by the 1970s, and for a while it seemed ranch house plans’ popularity was a thing of the past. But today, these expansive single level homes are regaining popularity, for many reasons. The very traits that builders have derided in the past are turning out to be great design assets. For instance, the simplicity of design in ranch style house plans was sometimes thought of as being “too plain,” but this characteristic turns out to provide real ...View Entire Post
