GARDENING Fall color for Florida t is not something that will bring tourists to the state as it does in New England, but for those who would like some, it is possible to have a little fall color in the Florida landscape. Normally, when focusing on landscapes, it is my purpose to set high expectations with great optimism. However, there are a few caveats when it comes to fall color in a state as far south as Florida, and tempered enthusiasm will probably provide less chance for disappointment. Some years the color will be great; other years it will be almost non-existent. Perhaps the best approach is not to expect too much in the way of color, and to rejoice in those years when everything pans out. After all, there are many reasons to select particular plants, and color is only one reason. One of the first things you will find about color in Florida is that it comes late in the season, sometimes not occurring until early winter. Another factor in Florida is that heavy rain will accelerate leaf drop. Next, not unique to Florida, weather plays a significant part in the extent of coloring one might expect. Finally, fall colors pass quickly, and often only a couple days of showy foliage occur, or some years hardly any at all. If you have plants that give fall color, make it your purpose to observe it and enjoy it while it lasts. The process of coloration in leaves begins in late summer, when, in preparation for growth next spring, the cell walls that connect the leaf to the stem begin to wall off for separation. Leaves respond to day length, and as the days grow shorter, the job of manufacturing food comes to an end.

The Washington Post

ou might expect Josh Baker, founder, co-chairman and owner of BOWA, a custom design/build remodeling firm, to constantly tinker with his own home in Great Falls, Va. But Josh and his wife, Jill, always knew they wanted to stay in their home for their entire lives, so their plan allowed for lifestyle changes right from the beginning. “Our home is typical of what we do for our clients,” Josh Baker says. “We prioritize with them what they want now, but we also strategize with them for their future. We designed this house 17 years ago with a 30-year landscaping plan that we’ve been implementing in phases ever since we moved in.” Both Bakers’ parents still live in the homes where Josh and Jill Baker were raised, so the idea of a “forever” home is ingrained in each of them. “When we designed the home, we wanted to create a good meld of both traditional and contemporary styles,” Jill Baker says. The couple also wanted to design a comfortable family home rather than an opulent showcase. The open floor plan of the Baker home has a contemporary, nontraditional feel, but the use of wood flooring, extensive built-in wood cabinets, a stone fireplace and walls of windows

The Baker kitchen features dozens of maple cabinets with cherry veneer inserts and a center island with space for seating as well as plenty of additional storage space.

framing views of trees, grass and gardens keep the home feeling warm and personal rather than edgy. “We made sure that there are open lines of sight everywhere in the house from the front door through to the back,” Josh Baker says. “The full-length glass front doors let you see right through to the pool.” When the Bakers were designing their home, Josh Baker had been in the home remodeling business for nearly a decade. He says he benefitted from years of meeting with clients and looking at their priorities at different life stages. For

example, the Bakers designed a first floor guest suite with privacy and space for their friends and family to enjoy that also can function as a master suite if they decide they prefer one-level living someday. While Baker has been careful with his own home design, he was adventurous when starting his business with co-founder Lawrence

Weinberg. The business partners spent the summer of 1987 working as laborers on remodeling crews, and then in January 1988, they started BOWA with an investment of $5,000 each. Revenue has grown from $309,732 that first year to nearly $40 million a year. Baker credits the company’s success to its emphasis on customer service. “We take our commitment to finishing every project on time and on budget so

Continued from 4H seriously that we send our customers on a trip if we don’t fulfill our promise,” says Baker. The grounds include a vegetable garden, an infinity pool, lawns, multiple seating areas and a charming trellis wrapped by a wisteria vine. Inside, the open family room, dining room, breakfast area and kitchen all share views of the landscaped grounds. While the floor-to-ceiling windows provide drama for the space, the details of well thought-out spaces are a clue to the fact that this home belongs to a careful craftsman.

couches and chairs are the setting for conversation and quiet reflection. A floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, one of several wood-burning fireplaces in the home, is constructed of local stones that match the exterior stones of the property. The Baker kitchen features dozens of maple cabinets with cherry veneer inserts and a

center island with space for seating as well as plenty of additional storage space. The Bakers recently upgraded their appliances and added a slate backsplash, but their cabinets, granite counters and the kitchen’s design look as if they were built this year rather than 17 years ago. The first floor also includes a

powder room, the guest suite and a home office, one of Josh Baker’s favorite spaces. “I always wanted to have a place to work at home with a wood-burning fireplace so I could work on a snowy day,” he says. The office has a central desk for Baker and a custom-designed built-in cherry desk that his daughters used for homework. Custom-designed built-in cherry cabinets and shelves surround the room, which has a cathedral ceiling and a wall of windows with a window seat that offers a morning view of the sunrise and the two dozen or so deer that frequently visit the Baker home. Upstairs, each of the Baker daughters has a nicely propor-

tioned room with windows on two sides. In the master suite, the Bakers have a wood-burning fireplace with a raised hearth, his-andhers walk-in closets and a spacious bath with a whirlpool tub and a glass-enclosed shower. “We paid attention to details everywhere in this house with things like solid wood doors and great hardware because we’re always replacing those when we remodel homes,” says Baker. While the landscaped grounds, quality materials and thoughtful design of this home provide a lovely setting for entertaining, it’s easy to see that the Bakers are just as happy to be settled in front of the fireplace with their dog and their daughters for quiet conversations.

Fire up your backyard with these pit options for fall color, then

fire pit is quite doable for anyone with a backyard who wants to create a relaxing evening outdoor amenity. Fire extends your outdoor living season well beyond the summer months by warming outdoor spaces. Even if you’re on a budget, this can be an affordable weekend project that warms your nights with friends and family. Consider these options to find the perfect one for you: ■ $ Free salvage fire pit. Repurpose a 50-gallon steel drum by sawing it in half for the most affordable fire pit. Another popular option is a salvaged metal washingmachine drum with tiny holes that allow light to shine through the sides, too. Spray the drum black with heat-resistant stove paint for an instant upgrade. IMPORTANT TIP: Lay a piece of stiff ¼-inch mesh hardware cloth over an

visual appeal. $$$ Prefab fire pit. These free-standing units are designed to allow a propane tank to be hidden inside. That’s a real problem-solver where fire is outlawed due to wildfire-hazard or air-pollution concerns. This option features an attractive boxlike or round unit in a wide range of materials and colors. These units also function like furnishings by bringing the fire up to table level for greater visibility. ■ $$$$ Pricey built-in fire pit. This traditional fire pit in the landscape can cost a pretty penny. Designed with materials that tie into architecture, these are often fitted with clean natural gas or propane so you need not have firewood or ash removal to enjoy the heat. Such improvements can cost thousands of dollars, but they make it easy to enjoy an impromptu evening outdoors. No matter what kind of pit you choose, position it in your yard or landscape so it’s a safe distance from the house and separated from outdoor living areas, particularly if you’re burning firewood. Beware of prevailing breezes so the smoke is blown away from the faces of guests — and neighbors. ■

enjoy it while it lasts Continued from 4H Xanthophylls (yellow pigments), carotenoids (orange pigments) and anthocyanins (purple and red pigments), are normally masked in the leaf by chlorophyll — green pigments that capture light energy. As the leaf stem is walled away from moving sugars into the root system, the chlorophyll fades in sunlight, much like construction paper fades over time in light, eventually revealing the yellows, oranges, purples and reds we enjoy as fall color. No doubt trees offer the greatest opportunity for fall color impact, and those in the maple family have a sound record of delivering fall color. Red maples perform well in Florida and tolerate a variety of soil conditions including wet soils. They become a large tree potentially growing to 80 feet high and 35 feet wide, so space for growth is an important consideration. Expect reds and oranges for fall color. Another consideration in the maple family is the Florida maple, a tree slightly smaller than the red maple, growing to 60 feet high and 25 feet wide. These have colors more in the yellow color scheme. A few of the oaks offer colorful displays in certain years, and chief among these is the Shumard oak, another tree that needs room, potentially reaching 80 feet tall and 50 feet wide. These tend to be red during early winter. Another oak consideration

is the Nuttall oak, a tree we have trialed at the Marion County Extension office with good results. This tree becomes large in similar proportions to the Shumard, and offers fall colors in the yellow spectrum. There are a few mediumsized trees/shrubs that offer potential for fall color, including some of the crape myrtle varieties. I have seen the Natchez cultivar exhibit brilliant red colors during some years, depending on weather conditions. Japanese barberry is another shrub that grows as high as 10 feet. It shows colors in shades of red during the fall. Over the past few summers, UF/IFAS Extension in Marion County has experimented with a dwarf variety of Nandina. The common varieties, nandina domestica, are considered invasive, so aren’t recommended. But these dwarf varieties do not have the spreading nature of the larger cultivar. Blush pink nandina is light green during the summer growing season, but its leaves turn pink to red during late fall. Flirt has more of a maroon color as fall progresses. Fall color can be had in Florida landscapes. One simply needs to plan plantings accordingly, keep an eye out for the short window offered, then enjoy it while it lasts.

Console sinks combine design with storage Rhode Island First, let’s discuss the three basic bathroom sink styles. Scripps Howard News Service Usually you’ll find a While looking for a sink top vanity-style sink, my with a full vanity base, a wife and I came across a pedestal-type sink or a fixture called a console table and would like more wall-hung sink.

are more of a design statement. However, they do offer limited storage space. A console sink is a cross between a pedestal and a vanity-type fixture. The base on a console-table sink can look like a table base (hence the name), with four legs under each corner of the sink top. This universal design allows for a shelf across the bottom of the frame for storing towels or supplies. Basically, it’s an open vanity that can be made from a variety of materials for plenty of design choices. Bottom

Actress Drew Barrymore sells Montecito estate Los Angeles Times

ctress Drew Barrymore and her husband, art consultant William Kopelman, have sold the Montecito, Calif., estate where they were wed for $6.35 million. The 1937 traditional-style house sits on more than two acres with mature trees, an expansive lawn and a cupola-topped guesthouse. A gravel motor court leads to the brick entry terrace of the 6,258-square-foot house. Features include a woodfloored foyer, a paneled living room, a librarystudy, six bedrooms and 7½ bathrooms. Barrymore, 38, gained recognition for her role as Gertie in “E.T. the ExtraTerrestrial” in 1982. She’ll star next year in “The Familymoon” with Adam Sandler.

A

Among her credits are “Big Miracle” (2012), “He’s Just Not That Into You” Barrymore (2009) and the “Charlie’s Angels” films (2000 and 2003). The actress bought the property in 2010 for $5.705 million. She is expecting her second child. ■■■

Gerard Way, lead singer-songwriter for My Chemical Romance, and his wife, Lyn-Z, bass player for Mindless Self Indulgence, put their Tarzana, Calif., home on the market at $1.899 million and in less than two weeks they were in escrow. The Tudor-style home, built in 1980, features leaded glass windows, vaulted beamed ceilings

and half-timbered exteriors. The 4,803 square feet of interior space includes a formal entry, an office, five bedrooms and six bathrooms. The lot, which stretches more than half an acre, has a swimming pool with a spa and an outdoor barbecue area. Way, 36, co-founded My Chemical Romance in 2001. The alt-rock band disbanded this year. His brother, Mike Way, bassist for My Chemical Romance, also listed his Tarzana home for sale at $1.489 million. The 3,915-square-foot house, built in 1956, features high ceilings, a wet bar, four bedrooms and four bathrooms. It too has a swimming pool and barbecue area, as well as an orchard and a fire pit.

Arrows on floor joists show direction of bowed wood Scripps Howard News Service

I took your advice and inspected my crawl space. The crawl space is dry, but I noticed almost all the floor joists had arrows drawn on the side with the arrow pointing to the rooms above. Why are the boards marked? None of the wood I found at the lumberyard was marked like this. A carpenter marks the arrows on the floor joists before placing each floor joist inside the foundation. The process is called crowning; the carpenter holds the joist vertically and looks down the length of the board to

Q:

A:

see if it is bowed (crowned) or if it is somewhat straight. If the board is crowned, he will mark the board with an arrow showing which way the board is crowned. He then lays the board flat on the beams for the workers to install. They will install all the joists with the crown pointed up so that there are no dips in the finished floor. The same process is performed for the wall

DWIGHT BARNETT

The process is called crowning; the carpenter holds the joist vertically and looks down the length of the board to see if it is bowed (crowned) or if it is somewhat straight. If the board is crowned, he will mark the board with an arrow showing which way the board is crowned. studs for the kitchen and bathroom walls where cabinets are installed, but the crowning is done by the carpenter as each stud is installed. There are no marks on the wall studs, and the studs that have a significant crown or bow are rejected or culled out for other uses. To speed up the framing process and to

save on labor costs, builders of homes often times use finger-jointed wall studs, which are small pieces of 2-by-4s about 4 to 6 inches long that are glued together to form a straight wall stud. Culling the wall studs is no longer necessary when using finger-jointed lumber.

I’m glad to hear you inspected the crawl space of your home. Most homeowners will spend time and resources to maintain the areas of the home they can see including a wet basement, but a wet crawl space that is out of sight and out of mind can cause all kinds of problems with decay, mold, rusting ductwork, infestation damage, nesting for pests and so on. If a homeowner is unable or unwilling to inspect the crawl space, I would strongly recommend he or she hire a certified home inspector to check the

crawl space at least once a year. At the same time the home inspector also can inspect the attic area for potential problems such as roof leaks, inadequate insulation and wiring problems. You can find a certified home inspector at www.ashi.org. Dwight Barnett is a certified master inspector with the American Society of Home Inspectors. Write to him with home improvement questions at C. Dwight Barnett, Evansville Courier & Press, P.O. Box 286, Evansville, IN 47702, or email him at d.Barnett@insightbb.com.
