Rerofit for Energy Performance and Design impact

Article Image

At the start of this project, Green Hammer Design Build was brought in simply to repair siding that had failed from moisture issues. The cause was improper flashing, and the shaded site had exacerbated the deterioration of the wet assembly. After discovering the extent of the damage, the homeowners decided the time was right for a deep-energy retrofit. While at it, they wanted to enhance the appearance of the entry. The builder removed the compromised siding and added exterior rigid-foam insulation to the 2×6 walls to beef up their thermal resistance. Special attention was paid to air-sealing, and a rainscreen was added for additional moisture control. Most of the building was re-clad in fiber-cement panels, and the windows were boxed out with sheet metal cut into trim pieces and riveted together. For a layered look on the front facade, the team used recessed rusted-steel panels against brightly colored fiber cement

Luke and Lilla Cassell play with their chickens in the family’s chicken coop. 

“She was raised with her grandmother having chickens in Kemper County,” said Cassell, a doctor at Meridian Oncology Associates. “She had been begging for us to get chickens, so when COVID slowed things down a little bit, I finally agreed.”

“Since I was three, I remember going every morning and letting the chickens out,” Amanda Cassell said. “It was fun – it was such childhood memory for me, so it’s special seeing the kids enjoying it.”

After ordering a plan in April, the family – including Hayden Grace, 8, Luke, 6, and 2-year-old Lilla – went to work assembling the 8-by-26 chicken coop.

Fall home decor trends: Comforting hues, flexible design

In recent years, brown anything in a living space was considered by some arbiters of decor as drab and outdated. But this fall the hue is back in favor, in part because of the unsettled, anxious state of the world.

“Brown traditionally makes people feel comfortable and safe, and those are feelings that many of us are looking to our homes to provide,” says interior designer Dawn Hamilton of Oakland Park, Florida.

It’s just one of the trends in decor this season, when the pandemic has made home an even more essential space for living, working, studying and more. Also on the watch list: flexible rooms, indoor and out.


Hamilton says today’s brown palette is being used in new ways, as a neutral in all kinds of materials, and as an accent color.

“Brown feels very earthy and rich. It’s warm and inviting, and has the same grounding

Boston city councilors mull creating a commission to tackle family homelessness

The panel would work to identify gaps in resources for homeless families, conduct a cost analysis of the problem, and generate a thorough plan that would unite city resources in a coordinated effort that would lead to the end of family homelessness.

At a Monday afternoon council hearing conducted via Zoom, Danielle Ferrier, the CEO of Heading Home, a housing and shelter provider, said that both the city and state lack a strategic and systemic approach to preventing and addressing family homelessness. Services, she said, are hard to access and limited, and there are inconsistent data regarding the problem.

“The goal is for the city and the state and the feds, ideally, for all of those to coordinate,” she said.

Advocates want the commission to report its recommendations to the council within a year, said Christi Staples, a vice president at UnitedWay Massachusetts Bay. Any plan should address structural racism
