Exterior info: The trick to installing clapboard siding is to make sure it is aligned evenly and will shed water.If water gets behind the clapboard, rot will run riot through sills and sheathing. Beneath clapboard home siding, a properly applied solid base of plywood sheathing offers a flat surface and helps prevent clapboards from cracking during nailing. For a barrier against air infiltration, today's construction practices often call for a layer of spun olefin house-wrap to be stapled over the sheathing. This way there is no air or moisture passage to worry about.
More Kitchen DIY Remodel Tips for Deerfield Beach Homeowners and Handymen
Almost as important as the work triangle are activity centers in a kitchen. These interrelated work centers should be designed to suit your specific space, wants and needs. At the same time, they should make cooking, serving your family and guests, dining together, cleanup, and other activities easier to accomplish and more enjoyable.
Food preparation center - The food preparation center should be functional for cooking big family dinners and preparing for parties, as well as for providing easy access space for whipping up quick weeknight meals, making snacks, and zapping leftovers. This center is great for storing canned and dry goods, baking dishes, mixing bowls, can openers, storage containers and many other small appliances.
Many cooks agree that time and effort can be minimized by organizing a kitchen in such a way that ingredients, utensils, and cookware needed for favorite and often-preparing dishes are readily accessible in a kitchen. Plan your design so the kitchen accommodates your special culinary talents and interests. Most cooks find it sensible to store some frequently used items, such as paring knives and spices, in more than one location in the kitchen.
When preparing a meal in your newly-remodeled kitchen, you also need easy access to a sink for washing vegetables and filling pots with water. A pot-filler faucet mounted at the cooktop is a great feature to consider if you often find yourself lugging large pots of water from the sink to the cooktop. A secondary sink and its adjoining counter space may be the perfect spot for washing and chopping vegetables.
Subcenters - Many of today's kitchens in Deerfield have subcenters in the food preparation area center, such as:
- The food-storage center. This is most often a pantry or a wall cabinet either in or right next to the food prep center.
- The snack center. This often includes an under-counter mini fridge, a microwave oven, and a kid-friendly snack area; there might also be a second sink.
- The breakfast center. This might be a place near the breakfast dining area of a renovated kitchen where you store quick and easy breakfast foods, bowls and juice glasses for fix-it-yourself morning on the go.
The Kitchen Cleanup Center
The sink, a key feature of the work triangle, also plays a major role in the cleanup center, food preparation center, and the cooking center. Other important features of the cleanup center are the dishwasher, garbage disposer, trash and recycling containers, and adequate, easy-to-reach storage for dish towels, sponges, dishwashing detergent, and other cleaning products.
Dishwashers should be placed next to the sink on whichever side works best for the primary cook. It's also useful to have the trash container close at hand. This kitchen design cuts down on the number of cleanup steps; just take the dishes to the sink, scrape, rinse and load right into the dishwasher. If you entertain frequently in your kitchen, you may find this is a real timesaver. Many homes in Lake Forest offer two dishwashers in their kitchen layout as well.
