I am in the "no-baseboard" camp. I know someone who had a house built with walls that floated above the floor about an inch. The gap between the drywall and the floor was actually closed out with an aluminum C-channel. The open side of the C faced out to give a recess under the wall. The e...

Torrance

Synthetrix, Can you recall the streets names? I would like to know because I have two kids and I would like to put them in a good school district without having to commute far from Redondo beach where I work. I have been looking in Torrance for over a year. I would rather not settle for a 70's tract...

spinsLPs The laundry must be outside somewhere. The AC was on the ground set againts the wall. The price? Considering the location and the fact that it is probably the last Neutra within reach of most people, it is not bad. But then most people have more than three pieces of furniture. Perfect for U...

I got a chance to walk into the Strathmore unit. The space is small but if you limit your furnishings to the one Edward wormely 60" sofa there, one George Nelson slatted coffee table, one Eames fiberglass rocker and invite no more than four people at a time you wouldn't do too bad. Also it helps to ...

Powdercoating

I have not priced out chairs but I believe it gets cheaper if you do it in batches. It is better to find shop that includes sandblasting. That way there is less chance of contamination from handling. When I did my SteelCase tanker desk I was told that it would not have cost much more if I had includ...

Bertoia al Fresco

Harry Bertoia chairs work well as outdoor furniture. The steel mesh has a transparency to then and cast a nice shadow. They show up on E-bay all the time and are inexpensive when they are sold in groups. My white chairs are rubber coated and my black ones are painted. They have been holding up prett...

Erik House

SDR I did attend the open house a few weeks ago and the seller agent actually allowed me to take photos. None of my pictures looked as good as the ones in the link. The first thing I noticed was new condition of the cabinets and the use of vertical grain douglas fir veneer over plywood. I was told t...

This photo brings back memories. Just like it was when I moved out of PLB in 1993. I was living in one of the 2 bedroom penthouse units of 432 Curson (#50?). The unit was faced southwest towards the large garden with only two other towers at a distance. Beyond I was able to look down Wilshire Blvd. ...
