Yellow indicates permanent structures in both the new and old spaces. Red diagonals are doorways. Red floor is oak, green floor is porcelain tile. Red lines are windows (see front elevation photos on this photostream).

New doorway at top between the bookshelf and the yellow-colored closet leads to the dining room and to the bath and bedrooms. There is an oak floor under these areas already. The doorway will be a pocket door with full-length glass so that we can keep the dog, smells, and sounds corralled when we need it and yet not isolate the kitchen when door is closed. We will need to reconcile the new floor with the old oak floor here.

Green area is front lobby and includes a long coat closet. Lobby windows are awning style overlooking driveway. Front door has full-length glass with blinds to increase natural light during daytime. In previous photos, many of the walls of this area are painted green as a test of the color. There is a door at top of green area in drawing which was the original front door position in 1951. (We retained a door here when we expanded the house into the former front step area in 1975. We will retain the hollowcore oak door at this postion for dog, smell, and sound control as well as to block view of interior of house from front door when we need to do this.) Beyond this door are the living room, another bedroom, and a deck door that is almost directly in line with this doorway. We will need to reconcile the old oak floor at this position with the new tile floor.

Stairway to basement will have windowless pocket door. Most of the time this doorway will be open to allow dog access to basement walkout, but closed when needed. Steve has redone the entire basement stairway to allow a safe, wide top step threshold before the first descending step and to even out the stair heights. This was a lot of work and it cost us the lower half of the existing coat closet (which is cut off in photo).

Pantry closet was planned to be angled but we decided to square-off the access route; door will be windowless hinged door (I would like louvers but we’ll see.)

Door to garage is a steel firedoor to be painted to match something in the lobby. This door sees a lot of action because Steve works on autos in garage and washes hands in kitchen. The coat closet will have a blaze orange section. The blind cupboard corner of the kitchen abutting this closet will have an access door from inside the coat closet instead of access from the kitchen. This will allow offseason boot storage. Closet door is two sliding doors, not bifolds as shown.

We will commission a custom bookshelf in the area formerly a doorway leading to the bathroom and bedrooms at upper left in photo. A small eating table with a piece of art behind it will lie between refrigerator and bookcase–it will be viewed down the long hall from the garage, so it has to be attractive and inviting. Another piece of art will be mounted on the uninterupted wall of the pantry closet–it will be best seen from the inside of the G. Another piece of art will be positioned to the left of the awning windows in the lobby, which can be seen from stools or after entering from dining room or when removing coat in lobby.

In previous photos, the middle of walls inside of the G-shaped kitchen are painted red as a test. There are upper cupboards on the top and bottom of the G but not on window wall or peninsula. Decor of the room(s) will be eclectic: Spare Scandinavian-style pale cupboards, modern white glass pendant lights, probably "pewter" door hardware, and a minimal backsplash. All countertops will be laminate except two butcherblock 2′ x 2′ sections either side of the range. Art works may include a mix of Audubon birds, a Breckenridge watercolor of a heron rookery, a couple oil landscapes, and national park early photos. Display pieces on the bookshelf will include Old Sheffield Plate silver antiques and Benningtonware teapots. A wooden hayfork may make an appearance somewhere here. Lobby and desk and table chairs may be early 19th century "fancy chairs" or similar items. A repro mahogany utility cupboard will serve in the lobby under the window until we find something more suitable.

As of late May, 2010, we have come to the point where we must make some flooring final decisions. Steve will be reconciling the ceiling first (so the slop does not fall on oak floor) and then will begin laying tile and oak. We must use strong porcelain tile instead of ceramic because of the potential heaving of old fill under the house.

Because of personal preference and energy conservation, we have no recessed lights. The green area and hall toward patio have 3 successive ceiling-hugging lights. There is a matching utilitarian light to be positioned centrally off the pantry closet corner to give general light to the kitchen hall and there are two matching ceiling-hugging fixtures n the center of the G. There will be undercounter lights on t

The patio door

The patio door
The patio door, another unfinished project. It must have been replaced years ago, but then the job was never completed: the insulating foam is still visible and (as you can see) attracting birds, who made this mess. Each time we asked the landlord when the plastering will be done, we got the same answer: "In summer." (This job has not been done in 8 years, so I really wonder which summer he’s waiting for).

It’s hard to believe that this is the same guy who recently sent a letter, complaining about the "walls in your apartment that haven’t been painted" (uhm, yeah, sure…) and "the garden you never cared for" (he probably forgot that the rusty bar clamps and other stuff we found there were his).

Maybe I should send a letter, too: "Don’t worry, I can assure you all these things will be done in summer!" 😀

(Die Terrassentur, ein weiteres unvollendetes Projekt. Sie wurde wohl vor Jahren einmal ausgetauscht, aber auch das wurde nie wirklich fertiggestellt: man sieht immer noch den Dammschaum, der auf Vogel irgendwie anziehend wirkt (siehe Bild) – die haben auch diese Schweinerei hier veranstaltet. Jedesmal, wenn wir den Vermieter danach gefragt haben, wann diese Stelle denn verputzt wird, hie? es: "Im Sommer." (Die Arbeit an der Tur wurde in 8 Jahren nicht gemacht, ich frage mich schon, auf welchen Sommer er denn wartet).

Kaum zu glauben, da? es sich hier um denselben Mann handelt, der uns kurzlich einen Brief geschrieben hat, in dem er sich uber die "erforderlichen Malerarbeiten in der Wohnung, die nie durchgefuhrt wurden" (ja sicher, ich habe es bisher nicht erwahnt, aber ich wohne eigentlich im Rohbau) und die "Pflege des Gartens, der nicht nachgekommen wurde" beschwert hat (vermutlich hat er ganz vergessen, da? die rostigen Schraubzwingen und anderer Schrott, der im Garten so herumlag, eigentlich ihm gehoren).

Vielleicht sollte ich auch einen Brief schreiben: "Keine Sorge, ich kann versichern, da? das alles im Sommer erledigt wird!" 😀

The 2011-2016 World Outlook for Sliding Wood Patio Doors
This econometric study covers the world outlook for sliding wood patio doors across more than 200 countries. For each year reported, estimates are given for the latent demand, or potential industry earnings (P.I.E.), for the country in question (in millions of U.S. dollars), the percent share the country is of the region and of the globe. These comparative benchmarks allow the reader to quickly gauge a country vis-a-vis others. Using econometric models which project fundamental economic dynamics within each country and across countries, latent demand estimates are created. This report does not discuss the specific players in the market serving the latent demand, nor specific details at the product level. The study also does not consider short-term cyclicalities that might affect realized sales. The study, therefore, is strategic in nature, taking an aggregate and long-run view, irrespective of the players or products involved.

This study does not report actual sales data (which are simply unavailable, in a comparable or consistent manner in virtually all of the 230 countries of the world). This study gives, however, my estimates for the worldwide latent demand, or the P.I.E., for sliding wood patio doors. It also shows how the P.I.E. is divided across the world’s regional and national markets. For each country, I also show my estimates of how the P.I.E. grows over time (positive or negative growth). In order to make these estimates, a multi-stage methodology was employed that is often taught in courses on international strategic planning at graduate schools of business.
