Mural for Street Delivery X by Saddo

I painted this mural in Bucharest, Romania, for the tenth edition of Street Delivery, a street festival trying to raise some awareness towards some of the main problems of the city. This year’s edition’s main focus was global warming and carbon footprint. I was lucky enough to have my project chosen out of the rest of the submissions. The concept is pretty straightforward – the painting of the leaves, flowers and birds, tries to mimic how nature takes a lot of time to grow and develop, and then the red drippy line tries to suggest the quick, destructive effect that sometimes humans have. I wish I would’ve had just a little bit more time to add some more tones and details… [read more here].

Building Stairs Tutorial: Straight Steel Stair Construction Straight Steel Stair Construction

This 70-minute video goes through the steps of constructing straight steel stairs. It’s probably invaluable if you’re training fabricators in your shop to fabricate steel stairs or if you want a review for yourself. Chris Maitner, owner of Christopher Metal Fabricating, Grand Rapids, MI, leads the demonstration as he describes how to fabricate a steel pan stairway with concrete fill for a large commercial project.

The video is broken down into six segments: field measuring, reviewing blueprints, revising blueprints for shop fabrication, tools of the trade, layout and fabrication, and stair assembly. You could literally watch the video in segments and fabricate a steel stair as you go… [read more here].

Setting out and making a simple Stair

What we are going to be talking about here is the actual marking out of the stair strings. The most important thing to do first is to check the actual measurements on site. Make sure that if an error has happened in the building process that you find it and use the correct overall rise. The most common mistake is to measure what you have, floor to floor and forget to add for the floor finishes. That is you have to add to the measured height for say, ceramic tiles that will later be added to the top… [read more here].

Top 10+ Hidden Secret Gardens to Grow Your Curiosity

A couple of years ago, I wrote a post entitled 15 Stunning Urban Gardens that Inspire. Well, now I have another round-up for you, but this time showing some stunning secret gardens from across the globe. Over the past couple of weeks, I have visited 2 massive mansions with even bigger gardens here in England, and both of these had hidden gardens too. So—I felt inspired to write a post showcasing some impressive examples…

Create a Secret Garden

What is a secret garden? It’s a little spot tucked away in the back corner of the yard. It’s a place where you’ll be able to retreat, to sit in the quietude of the summer evenings undisturbed by the hustle and bustle of daily life. You don’t need a lot of room for a secret garden; you can still leave the lawn open and still have flower beds in front of the house. Mostly, you’ll need a place where you can tuck a chair, a few plants, and, if possible, a couple of hedges… [read more here].

Hide and seek: Alan Titchmarsh’s tips on creating a secret garden

Some parts of the garden are for the rest of the world to admire. Others are for you to disappear to when you don’t want to be found. Of course, that’s easy enough to arrange when you have lots of land with space for the kids to run round and a few bijou Hidcote or Sissinghurst-style “garden rooms” for the adults to enjoy. But when your garden is on the small side, you might think it’s a tall order. Well, you’re wrong. The mistake a lot of people make is to surround a small garden with high fences then plonk a lawn in the middle and borders round the edge. Far from making the most of the area, that just makes it look a lot smaller and more boring… [read more here].

Creating a Secret Garden

On a corner lot in the city, with an alley running along the back, it can be quite a challenge to create private outdoor space. Holly Fliniau knows, because that’s exactly the situation she faced when she moved into this Denver home, in 1993. She didn’t really have a plan when she started landscaping the property, but what evolved could be a textbook example of good garden design. She created a series of “rooms” that flow into one another and yet each have a distinct sense of place… [read more here].
