Green Building Forum and Year-End Celebration

Nandi and I attended the year-end celebration of Build it Green on December 9th in Berkeley. It is a state-wide organization of environmentally concerned builders and subcontractors and we have found that this group dovetails with our own interest in building “green” cabinetry; that is, cabinetry that is built from sustainably harvested wood and panels, using non-toxic glues and components.

The first part of the program included presentations by leaders in the green building industry. We discovered that while Europe is gearing up to have all building standards in ten years to require “net zero” energy usage, California is following close behind. “Green” building, and by extension, “green” cabinetry is the future of the industry. Good thing Rivendell is on board at the start!

The forum was followed by a celebration with food, wine and live music, including the presenting of awards to builders who have distinguished themselves in green building. We rubbed elbows with builders we enjoy working with, including Bill Jetton of Jetton Construction, who was awarded Green Builder of the Year for residential home, and Seth Melchert of Master Builders, who embodies positive energy and enthusiasm for the year to come. May 2011 by the best year yet for all of us!

  • 路人甲:你都咪話,大陸如果係大城市受過較佳教育果班年青才俊,真係唔大陸 feel,好過香港人多多聲,此為香港人應警醒。卡臣:無錯,係父母一輩教導這意識,但弊就弊在,新一代香港人,就算卅幾歲,都一樣有這類德性,咁就奇怪,即是無改進。我還會談談,香港很多小店舖,為何經營不濟,是大財團壟斷,還是另有原因,是和廣東人的蠢蛋智慧有關。

  • Francesa is a pompous jerk who purports to know everything when it comes to sports. His opinion is always right, so don’t disagree with him! Even when he gets something wrong (as he OFTEN does), he’ll spin his way out of his mistake.

  • “They had told me beforehand that I could expect to see occasional drops in ANT+ data, which was a bug they have planned for an August 16th firmware update (again, months before release).” Why would a drop in ANT data cause incorrect values to be displayed, instead of simply no data?
