Economic Growth and Construction Update

According to a recently published economic report from Freddie Mac, the market for new homes is set to continue its steady, albeit modest, positive growth.
This forecast follows on the heels of the news that housing starts for the second quarter of 2014 reached 980,000 new units being constructed. This new value presents an increase of over 67% from the gloom levels of mid-recession 2009.

So the housing market is certainly improving. Further good news is that Freddie Mac's Chief Economist Frank Nothaft believes the increase in new homes being built will be responsible for "accelerating the improvement in labor markets and fuel even more household formations and more housing demand". The increase in new homes being built will likely generate the jobs and the income necessary to fuel the construction of even more new homes. The outcome of this forecast effect is seen through the prediction that 1.3 million new homes will be built in 2015. 
Fingers crossed!

Lowe's to Pay Record $500K Penalty Over Subs' Lead-Paint Rule Violations

EPA cites job practice and recordkeeping infractions by contractors that Lowe's uses

Lowe's Home Centers will pay a record $500,000 civil penalty to settle allegations that contractors it hired for home projects violated the federal Lead Renovation, Repair, and Painting ( RRP) rule, the Justice Department and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced today.
The penalty--by far the largest ever imposed for an RRP violation--stems from investigations at 13 of Lowe's 1,700 stories nationwide in which EPA reviewed records from projects performed by companies working under contract to Lowe's. ( See details.)
"The government complaint alleged that Lowe’s failed to provide documentation showing that specific contractors had been certified by EPA, had been properly trained, had used lead-safe work practices, or had correctly used EPA-approved lead test kits at renovation sites," EPA said in a news release. "Additionally, EPA’s investigation found that Lowe’s had also failed to ensure that work areas had been properly contained and cleaned during renovations at three homes."   (see article for more)

EPA is cracking down on RRP violators

EPA Settles with, Fines 4 N.E. Firms for Lead-Paint Rule Violations

Fines ranged from $2,200 to $30,000

Four New England firms will pay penalties ranging from $2,200 to $30,000 to settle allegations they violated Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rules for doing renovations that could disturb lead paint, the agency said in a news release April 15.
The news follows another recent settlement in which two firms paid fines totaling $14,455 to settle allegations involving a project in Maine, as well as EPA's announcement that it was sending letters to 200 home renovation and painting contractors in Connecticut about a planned "compliance assistance and enforcement initiative."
All these developments involving the EPA's four-year-old Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) rule, in which penalties of up $37,500 per day can be imposed on contractors who fail to take required measures designed to limit the disturbance and dissemination of lead paint. Such paint, which hasn't been allowed for home use since 1978, has been found to cause severe health hazards, particularly to infants, small children, and the elderly.

This Tree-Inspired Skyscraper Sits On Top Of Streets And Sucks Up Pollution

When the L.A. freeway system was built in the 1940s and 1950s, the city saw the massive new roads as a magical solution for bad traffic. That clearly didn’t end up being the case, and the freeways also had the unintended consequences of splitting up neighborhoods and creating more poverty. In some other cities, aging freeways are being torn up and turned into surface streets or even parks. But what happens when a place like L.A. isn’t quite ready to give up existing infrastructure?
One somewhat improbable idea: Build another layer of the city over the roads, reconnecting neighborhoods by making it easier to walk. The Skyvillage design concept, proposed by a student at USC School of Architecture, is a skyscraper that would bridge over the 101-110 interchange near downtown L.A.
“It’s a really common problem for freeways to segregate communities instead of bringing people together,” says Ziwei Song, who developed the design as part of a studio class and recently won an honorable mention in the 2014 eVolo Skyscraper Competition. “Around the interchange, we found that there are four distinct cultures. If the freeway wasn’t there, it would be more united. That’s why we wanted to build something that could bring people from one side to the other.”
As the freeways stack up at the interchange, they also create a lot of wasted space--about 27 acres of land that can’t easily be used. This skyscraper, inspired by the shape of trees, would build on that space with several towers connected by branching floors. People could enter at the base of one tower, go upstairs, and cross to another neighborhood--from downtown to Chinatown, for example, or Echo Park to Temple Beaudry.
It’s not intended only to act as a bridge; the building itself is designed as a walkable neighborhood, so people living inside or nearby wouldn’t have to get in a car for everyday errands. Along with housing, offices, and a school, Song envisions restaurants, gyms, music clubs, shopping, and a park inside the skyscraper. “It’s a place for people from different social groups to interact,” she says.
The vertical towers supporting the building would be filled with air-filtering plants that are intended--at least in theory--to absorb some of the pollution from the nearby freeways.

"Walkability" Increasingly Important to New Home Buyers

According to a new article published in Builder Magazine, "walkability" is becoming more and more of an important factor for first-time home buyers.  "Walkability" refers to a home's proximity to grocery stores, schools, restaurants, shops, etc.  Millennials are a major driving force behind the new push for walkable neighborhoods both urban and suburban.  City planner Jeff Speck says in his latest book, Walkable City, "The biggest population bubble in the last fifty years want to live in places with excitement and buzz. ..if we're talking about new communities, the only answer is mixed-use and walkability."

Its not just millennials who appreciate walkable communities, however.  Their parents, the Baby Boomers, are also more interested in the concept.  As baby boomers get older, many are opting to live in places where they don't have to drive as much and can age in place.  For more information, check out the following article: Why Smart Builders Care About Walkability

Great Customer Testimonial for Builders Site Protection's fantastic T-X268 UV Threshold Tape!

The T-X268 Threshold Tape has always been one of Builders Site Protection's best-selling products.  Now a new customer testimonial explains why!  Teri Coulson of The Window Gal, LLC recently used T-X268 for a project that required protection for sliding door thresholds.  Although she was convinced the sliding door would not be able  to go over the threshold tape, she was soon proved otherwise!

"This Window Gal is one happy camper.  We went to the jobsite and placed the UV tape on the swinging door threshold.  [The homeowner] asked if we had anything for the pocketing multislide or the regular sliding door.  I told them I didn't think the doors would be able to slide over the tape. 

Guess What. I was WRONG!  We put the tape down over the tracks and then sliced it so that it we could fold it down into the channels, and then we placed another piece down in the channel itself.  The door still SLIDES!  The tape is slick enough that the rollers still roll, and the channel in the panel itself glides right past and over the tape.  It's great!  We also put one on the regular sliding door with a standard sliding doors sill, and even IT still slides.  It's a little harder to slide it, but the tradeoff in what the finished door sill will look like 6 to 8 months from now is well worth it."

Teri included the following photos which illustrate just how amazing the T-X268 Threshold Tape really is when it comes to protecting sliders.
