The bathroom is one of the only rooms in the house that is used by every family member multiple times a day. Whether nature calls, whether they are brushing their teeth in the morning and the night, or whether they are beautifying themselves ready for the day ahead, the bathroom could well be called the hub of the home. Many bathrooms are considered cold and clinical, but the trend for cosy and creative bathrooms is now flying full steam ahead, with warm colours and homely vibes turning the bathroom into the epitome of household friendliness. Experts Bellabathrooms.co.uk explain how you can transform your plain old bathroom into a welcoming family hub.
Dealing with routine roofing repairs should be planned on by homeowners annually. However, certain regions of the country are prone to more serious roofing catastrophes than other areas. What should you do if you live in an extreme cold climate where snow and ice can cause a roof to cave in? How can you protect your roof during a hurricane and other serious windstorms? Here are some measures you can take to help ensure your roof is safe during a catastrophe.
Change Roofing Materials
If you live in an area with high winds, use concrete tiles as roofing materials. Concrete roofing materials are strong and can withstand wind, ice, fire, and other conditions. If you plan on using concrete tiles, you’ll need additional support within the attic for the extra weight. Another roofing option to consider is metal roofing. Metal does a great job protecting against snow and ice, as it simply slides right off. This makes it easier to protect your home from damage as the weight of the ice and snow will not stay on the roof for long, preventing cave-ins from occurring.

Description of SheOak :
Aptly named the “beach shack”, this black box sits within the Casuarina estate on a beach-front lot. The brief was to develop a house that was informal, casual, comfortable and welcoming and most importantly to have a space for the clients quiver of long boards. Surrounded by an eclectic array of houses it became apparent early in the design stage the importance of the surrounds, the environment and the conditions that the house would be subjected to such as wind, salt and sun. The use of galvanised steel and stained ecoply promotes a rawness to the skin that will age gracefully rather than deteriorate like most paint type finishes. Whilst on the inside the material palette is refined yet hard wearing in the form of polished concrete. More detail,,
