Starting this quarter of Graphic Communication Methods class we are having lots of fun creating perspective hand rendering drawings. These drawings can also be effective presentation tools, allowing designers and their clients to take a glimpse at the conceptual space.

Built-ins are a great way to add character appeal, function, and storage to a room. The custom nature of built ins makes the possibilities endless and the arrangements more flexible for your particular space.
ADVANTAGES OF BUILT-INS:
- Built-ins blend in to your interior instead of standing out from it. Free-standing pieces of furniture can sometimes project out into the room as much as 24″ and tend to appear much “bulkier” than built-in cabinetry that is fitted to (or into) the wall.
- Built-ins can provide large quantities of storage because they can use an entire wall without overwhelming the look of the room.
- The trim in your house can be coordinated with the built-ins for a nice, cohesive look throughout.
- Built-ins can provide more efficient storage because they can be tailored to fit specific needs.
- Lighting can easily be integrated into your built-in cabinetry which will add ambience to the room it’s in. Double bonus!

As Canadians, we’ve seen a lot of ramshackle barns in our lifetime. Although we’d love to see them all restored, we know that’s not realistic and we’re pleased that when they do get demolished, some people are making good use of the remains.
You can use recycled or reclaimed barn boards to decorate a wide range of spaces in your home. You can use barn boards in a decorative fashion for almost any project where a normal board is used, including shelves, craft projects and other decorative pieces.
Whether you’re going green or you just like the rustic look, scroll down to see some inspiration of great barn board uses:
Add a touch of warmth to your floors by installing old barn boards on the space instead of old-fashioned hardwood. Rough barn boards offer a weathered quality for a rustic look
If you love your floors just the way they are, use your barn wood to cover the walls. You can use barn board the same way you do plank panelling or wainscoting to cover a wall.
