Calacatta Gold Subway Tile and Marble Mosaics

It is believed that Calacatta Gold marble mosaics tiles polished and honed have always been the choice of kings in the ancient world for it strength and beauty. However the cost of this product and limited availability has put it out of reach and budget for most homeowners until now.

The Builder Depot has launched a new collection of Calacatta Gold marble subway tiles, floor tiles, mosaics and trims for 2011 creating affordability and availability for homeowners, contractors and developers of a much sought after Calacatta gold product.

In the same tradition of all Builder Depot collections the pricing is very aggressive. “This particular product and European quarry has been monopolized by a few distributors” comments a Builder Depot spokesperson “This has allowed the pricing of the product to be inflated, we are going to sell the same quality for 75% less than the competitors”

The main products on the Calacatta Gold collection are:

•Calacatta Gold 3×6” Subway Tile Honed
•Calacatta Gold 2” Hexagon Tile Honed
•Calacatta Gold Herringbone Tile Honed

IADDIC Shelters Help Solve Global Housing Crises

IADDIC produces the first rigid, permanent shelters for mass distribution to help with disaster relief and humanitarian social housing

You are weather-beaten, tired and frayed. Due to situations beyond your control you have lost everything. Maybe there was a fire, flood, hurricane, or you simply lost your job. The roof and walls of your home have now been replaced by either a shredded tarp, the boards of a shack, a tent ripped apart by the wind, or maybe you have no protection at all. In any case, there is no relief from the noise and clutter of the streets – no protection from the elements or from the people who call themselves your neighbors. Having a protective shelter is a basic human need denied to 1 out of 5 people in the global population. 1.8 billion people in the world do not have adequate, livable shelters – 500 million of those are homeless. Even in America, the richest nation in the world, there are 670,000 people homeless on any given night.

“Every place on earth has a housing problem from Haiti, Mexico, Ecuador, Pakistan, India, and Africa to America where you see homeless veterans in Ohio,” says Richard Grabowski, CEO of IADDIC Shelters. “There are billions of people around the world living in abject poverty. We as a society, as a global community, have yet to find the way to adequately shelter this overwhelming volume.”

Grabowski and his company IADDIC Shelters have discovered the “need to shelter” and have dedicated themselves to producing an innovative solution to this global housing crisis. IADDIC has spent the last 5 years perfecting the first rigid, permanent shelters for mass production. With the final model completed and the resources developed for mass circulation, these shelters are ready to start rebuilding permanent communities that will revitalize areas devastated by disasters and poverty.

“There are two specific needs filled by IADDIC Shelters that did not previously exist in the marketplace: shelters for disaster relief and humanitarian social housing,” says Grabowski, “There was a need to shelter that was not being met and I think we now bring to the table a long-lasting affordable shelter that can be built in overwhelming numbers in a couple of hours.”

Increasing Numbers of Home Improvement Projects Ignoring Trees

Today’s homeowners want their homes to be functional and attractive with pristine curb appeal, but it takes careful planning to decide on a home improvement project.

Sometimes a room addition is needed. Sometimes it’s landscaping. The homeowner might want to add a play area or a basketball court to the back yard for the kids. In all these projects it’s important to not overlook trees.

Trees can present problems for the home improvement weekend warrior that many planners fail to consider in improvement projects affecting the outside of the home.

Play areas and room additions may require the removal and relocation of trees, but if the tree is providing a valuable benefit, like shade, some homeowners don’t want to lose them.

“You don’t have to, “ said John Howard of Premiere Tree Services of Orlando. “It’s sometimes more reasonable to relocate trees than to buy new ones.”

Premiere Tree Services of Orlando offers a full range of tree services, including planting, tree removal, stump grinding and tree shaping.
