Right design can create a dream kitchen A good work triangle is imperative Anita Murray Postmedia News It’s the heart of the home, where everyone gathers and everything happens, yet all too often our kitchens don’t work the way they should. So what do we do wrong and how can we get the most out of them? Jim Deslaurier is co-owner of Deslaurier Custom Cabinets in Ottawa. He has seen a lot of mistakes in his 30-plus years in the business and says much of it starts with design. “I’ve walked into brand-new kitchens and gone, ‘Oh my God, why did they put the stove over there?’ ” “The most important thing you can do for a kitchen ... is the design,” adds Friedemann Weinhardt, owner of Ottawa’s Design First Interiors. There are basic guide-

Interior details are important in helping to make your kitchen sing. Think pullout pantries, recycling centres and spice organizers, among others.

This eye-catching kitchen minimizes the use of upper cabinets and utilizes lower drawers. lines we need to follow in the design of a kitchen and ignoring them will create problems, he says. “The work triangle is still really, really important and always will be because that’s the flow of work when you’re in the kitchen.” (The work triangle is the area from the sink to the stove to the fridge and back to the sink and

forms the starting point of any design.) “If you don’t get the fridge and the stove and the dishwasher and the sink and everything in the right spot, it’s not going to work very well,” Deslaurier says. And there is a right spot. According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association, you need a minimum

Sandi Ramsdell

of four feet between points in the triangle and a maximum of nine. Any more than that and you’ll have “a lot of wasted steps,” says interior designer Sandra Gibbons. But just as you don’t want your appliances too far apart, they shouldn’t be too close together either. Anything that impedes the flow in the kitchen cuts down on its ef-

ficiency, like appliance doors that block off the space when they’re open, she says. And squeezing everything together, as is often done when the kitchen space is small, can mean not enough counter space. “That doesn’t mean that you need miles of counter space,” Weinhardt says. “What that means is you need

the counter space in the right place.” It’s important, for instance, to have counter space on either side of the sink to ensure there’s an easy work flow for the two main functions at a sink — washing dishes and preparing food. All of them stress the importance of work flow and function in the kitchen. “The functionality is where you really have to get it straight,” adds Giuseppe Castrucci, vice-president at Ottawa’s Laurysen Kitchens. But before it even comes to the design of the kitchen, there are things to consider, like what Castrucci refers to as the hate list and the wish list — because it’s important to know what you don’t like about your current kitchen as well as what you’d like to have in a new one. “Sometimes a hate list is more important than the wish list,” he says with a grin. The lists create a process of elimination that usually helps you figure out what will work for your new design, adds Deslaurier designer Pam Vanderbraak.

How government erodes housing affordability Stu Niebergall It is an interesting dichotomy. On the one hand, municipalities, provincial governments and the feds like to tinker with housing policy to demonstrate to citizens that they are addressing housing affordability in our communities. At the very same time, these same governments use new housing as a way to download their larger financial challenges onto new home buyers. Sometimes I have to wonder if they simply see new housing as an ATM machine. This is why we calculate that government imposed costs by municipalities, provincial governments, the federal governments and the Crowns account for

over 20 per cent of the cost of new homes in Canada. To illustrate how this often works, let me share the latest decision by Canada Post to charge a $200 per house levy to provide service to new homes that receive their mail through “superboxes” (CMPS). Many years ago every home in Canada received door-to-door mail service. Canada Post then could not afford to maintain that service to new communities, so they reduced services to save costs and created “superboxes.” Anyone who lives in a home built since the ’80s is familiar with walking to a central group of mailboxes to get their mail. In my home, this is how we get our mail. Personally, I don’t mind it at all. However I do recognize that I receive a lower level of service than people who live in older neighbourhoods. Now Canada Posts is asking new homeowners to pay extra for a lower level of service.

Kitchens Harmony

We should not be surprised to hear that Canada Post continues to see mail volumes decline, which makes containing losses increasingly more difficult for them. According to Canada Post spokesperson Jon Hamilton, Canada Post is facing over $300 million in losses while households are receiving 20 per cent less mail than they did even five years ago. So they are going to raise between $25 million and $35 million a year by transferring some of their inefficiencies onto new homeowners. When governments download costs onto new homeowners they tend to create spin on the item like Canada Post has done in their statement, “We’re not in the development business; we’re simply in the mail-delivery business.” Who ever said they were in the development business and yes we know you are in the mail delivery business. Part of Canada Post’s role is

As well, you need to know what you want in the way of appliances — a kitchen can’t be designed without them. “It causes a lot of wasted time when your appliances are not totally picked,” Des­laurier says. Gibbons agrees, saying there are no standard sizes for appliances anymore. And Castrucci adds that often people don’t have a good sense of space. “They really want those big huge appliances and it doesn’t fit the kitchen footprint.” Along with that, you need to know what you want your appliances to do and how they work. Deslaurier knows this from experience, having brought home an oven that he got a great deal on but his wife hated because it wasn’t wide enough to fit her big turkey. “She suffered for 10 years with the wrong oven,” he says with a laugh. When it does come to the design of the kitchen, there are more things to keep in mind. It’s important to know, for instance, just how the kitchen will be used. “How many people are going to actually work in the kitchen? How often do you and your husband cook at the same time? That affects how we should start trying to set that up,” Deslaurier says. Castrucci adds: “Each individual person works differently in their kitchen. They have certain things they want at their fingertips because they know what kind of food they cook every day.” Knowing that makes it easier to design the kitchen to fit your lifestyle. Will the style of the kitchen you want — assuming you know what that is — fit the house? “It’s got to be what you like, but it’s also got to tie into the other rooms in the house,” Deslaurier says.

Clean lines, enhanced with the use of zebrawood, creates balance and an absence of clutter in this award-winning kitchen by Ottawa’s Roca Homes. Castrucci says: “You’re obviously not going to put an ultra-modern kitchen in a traditional home. It won’t blend, there’s no harmony there.” Lighting is often an an area that’s overlooked. “People don’t really consider lighting enough,” Castrucci says, “but it’s really, really important. It makes or breaks (a room) sometimes.” Just as he believes a kitchen designer should be the one to design your kitchen, he recommends clients take their designs to a lighting store and have them determine your lighting needs. The bottom line is make sure you’re prepared when you go to talk to a kitchen designer. “Do your research — it’s a big investment,” Vanderbraak says, with Deslaurier adding, “It’s something that’s going to be a part of the house for a long time.” Out-of-town Classified Advertisers call toll-free 1-800-667-9999

and/or become more innovative in managing their costs, it is far easier to raise $25 to $35 million dollars on the backs of new homeowners. The problem is not just that Canada Post has created this fee, which is a relatively small portion when you consider all the costs that go into a house. The problem is that this is not an isolated occurrence. Every level of government has taken this approach with an ever-expanding list of levies and fees that are often in the hundreds of dollars and thousands of dollars per home and sometimes tens of thousands of dollars per home. Then governments scratch their heads and wonder why we have a housing affordability problem and why household debt related to housing is so high.

to figure out how to deliver mail in some fashion to citizens who move into new neighbourhoods. This is how government sneaks additional costs into housing. They make it sound like those affected don’t have to pay and someone else who is perceived to have a greater ability to pay can be forced to. This is illustrated in Canada Post’s press release when they state, “charged not to homeowners or home builders, but to developers.” Trust me when I say this, new levies and fees by any level of government, ultimately never fall onto developers and is always a cost that is passed on to new home buyers. This is without exception and Canada Post knows that. Now $200 may not seem like a lot on a new house, but that is not the point. My point is instead of Canada Post dealing with systemic issues of how to create a better value proposition for their customers

Closed-cell spray foam tops home insulation options

MIKE HOLMES Make it Right

Everyone’s always asking me what’s the best insulation? Batt? Loose fill? Rigid? Different insulation will work best for different jobs. But there’s one product that has proven itself consistently on every job I’ve used it: Closed-cell spray foam. For me there’s nothing better. It does what good insulation is supposed to do. When we talk about spray foam there’s open cell and closed cell. Open cell means the tiny foam cells aren’t completely closed — you can crush open-cell spray foam in your hands. But with the closed variety the tiny foam cells are closed and tightly packed together. This makes the spray foam denser — it’s rock solid — and increases its R-value (resistance to heat loss). This also makes closedcell spray foam more expensive than open cell; but the former ends up paying for itself so it’s worth the investment. Still the choice is ultimately up to the homeowner. Closed-cell spray foam gives you energy savings by protecting your home against heat loss — that’s huge. It creates a complete thermal break in the building envelope. So if your basement is normally cool in the summer it won’t be if it has spray foam, which stops heat loss even when it’s hot outside. It doesn’t let heat come in or out, and

it helps keep your entire home cool with minimal air conditioning. What makes spray foam so ef fective? It controls moisture — that’s the big one. Forty per cent of heat loss is due to air movement, but the other 60 per cent is related to moisture. Heat moves with moisture. The warmer the air, the more moisture it can hold. Cold air means less moisture, which is why your hands and lips get dry in the winter when you go outside. But spray foam creates a barrier to stop moisture movement, which helps stop heat loss. Spray foam is also inorganic which prevents mould growth. It doesn’t absorb moisture so it won’t compress and lose its Rvalue. You don’t have to worry about it sagging in your walls and leaving open spaces like batt insulation can. It has its own vapour barrier, and it isn’t harmful to your indoor air quality once it is cured. Even the best systems will not work if they aren’t installed properly. Spray foam is no exception. It needs to be applied by a specialized installer. Cutting corners leads to major risks. Trust only the pros. Who’s a pro? A foam master. These are professionals who are certified and approved spray foam installers. When you hire a foam master you know that the job will be done right the first time. Spray foam is an expensive product so you don’t want to pay for a bad job. Let me give a scenario. I was working on a house that had been retrofitted with spray foam. That means spray foam installers came

to the house years after it was constructed to install spray foam. So instead of having open walls to install the spray foam in, everything had been drywalled over. The original spray foam company that came in to quote the job — who also happened to be the pros I use — recommended to take the plaster down, re-stud the walls and then install the spray foam. T h e h o m e ow n e r s d e cided that option was too expensive. They went with a retrofit where holes were drilled along their walls — in random places — and then filled with open-cell spray foam. When a home is retrofitted with spray foam this way all you can do is hope that the cavities get filled. Usually this never works. In fact, it rarely works. Yes, it was only a fraction of the original quote, but it was a total waste of money. The damage done to their home left them no choice but to call me. And the worst part was that the foam they used contained urea formaldehyde, which was banned in 1980 because it releases formaldehyde gas into the air over time as it cures. Energy costs are increasing every single day. If you want your home to be energy efficient, proper insulation installed the right way is the way to go. It pays for itself. Not many things in the home do. Catch Mike Holmes in his new series, Holmes Makes It Right, Tuesdays on HGTV. For more information, visit hgtv.ca.

Postmedia News

The cozy living room of Jean and Dan McCloskey’s condo is a blend of elegant neutrals, accented by dramatic works of art. Jean designed most of the condo’s decor herself.

A bite of the Big Apple Scott McKeen Postmedia News Jean and Dan McCloskey’s one-bedroom Edmonton condo is not large, by any means. It’s about 800 square feet. Jean calls it rightsized. The couple lived for 25 years in a larger place in the same building. But then they considered a second home in Victoria, where they might escape Edmonton’s winter for a few months. In the end, two rightsized places — one in Edmonton, one in Victoria — trumped a single large condo for the retired couple. But it’s not like the McCloskeys just divided up the furniture and moved it into their new spaces. There was plenty of creativity that came into the picture, as Jean transformed the Edmonton condo into a stylish abode much like something you would see in New York. Jean studied design for a time at the University of

A glass pedestal is home to this polar bear sculpture in the condo’s front hallway. Alberta while Dan was still working. Dan retired in 1986. Jean is executive director of the couple’s condo building. The entryway is astonishing. The initial view is of a naturally lit, angled hall. The left-hand wall is gallery-like, in its display of a series of paintings. The right wall angles in and out, creating small spaces for Jean to play with. At first, there’s a slipper chair

and small writing desk. Then a leather corner seat, fitting snugly into the next alcove. A couple steps down and across the hall is an art deco chest below a pewter deer head. Across and down from it is a large mirrored pedestal for a polar-bear sculpture. On the walls are numerous paintings by Jean’s sister, Marilyn Dyer. All around are sculptures, vases or decorative furnishings acquired over the years on Dan and Jean’s travels. The hallway opens up bit by bit until ... ta-da, the condo proper, with its exposed kitchen and living room. The white walls a r e a c c e n t e d b y d a rk wo o d s i n t h e k i t c h e n . The upper cabinets feature artisan-glass inserts, lit from inside. The place is tastefully ador ned with sculpture, painting and blown glass. “People do say this looks like something from New York. I just think of it as home.”

Home sits in middle of road Didi Tang THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BEIJING — In the middle of an eastern Chinese city’s new main road, rising incongruously from a huge circle in the freshly laid pavement, is a five-storey row house with ragged edges. This is the home of the duck farmer who said “no.” Luo Baogen and his wife are the lone holdouts from a neighbourhood that was demolished to make way for the main thoroughfare heading to a newly built railway station on the outskirts of the city of Wenling in Zhejiang province. Dramatic images of Luo’s home have circulated widely online in China this week,

neighbourhoods for major redevelopment projects. City planners decided that Luo’s village had to be moved for a new business district anchored by the train station.

border fence

Ceasefire strained as Palestinian shot dead Robert Tait the Daily Telegraph JERUSALEM — Hamas accused Israel of violating the shaky two-day-old ceasefire in Gaza Friday after an Israeli soldier shot dead a Palestinian man close to the security fence that encloses the territory. Anwar Qdeih, 23, was said by a relative to have been shot in the head as he tried to place a Hamas flag on the fence near the town of Khan Younis, in southern Gaza. The relative said an Israeli soldier had fired in the air three times before firing the fatal shot. At least 19 other Palestinians were wounded in the incident. The Israeli military, which regards the zone close to the fence as a no-go area, said it was investigating. A spokesman for the Israel Defense Forces said soldiers had opened fire after large numbers of Palestinians attempted to breach the fence. “About 300 Palestinians tried to get close to the security fence. They engaged in violent activity and damaged the fence,” she said. The episode illustrated vividly the fragility of Wednesday’s truce that ended eight days of clashes in which 166 Palestinians and

Palestinians walk on a destroyed bridge in central Gaza City on Friday. A Palestinian man was shot dead by Israeli security forces Friday as he approached the border fence enclosing the territory. six Israelis died. Hours before the shooting, Israeli forces arrested 28 Palestinians, including five MPs affiliated to Hamas, in the West Bank. Hamas, the Islamist group

that runs Gaza, reacted to the shooting with relative restraint, accusing Israel of breaking the ceasefire terms but saying it would raise the matter only with Egypt.

“This is the first Israeli violation of the truce,” a Hamas spokesman, Sami Abu Zuhri, said. “(Hamas) will raise this violation with Egyptian mediators to make sure that it does not

happen again.” Ismail Haniya, Gaza’s de facto prime minister, has depicted the truce as a major triumph for Hamas and urged militant factions to observe it. The cessation of

hostilities that lifted the immediate threat of an Israeli land invasion prompted wild street celebrations inside Gaza on Wednesday night. The ceasefire has been greeted less enthusiastically inside Israel, where many view it as giving respite to militant groups that will sooner or later resume rocket attacks on Israeli towns and cities. An opinion poll Friday suggested that nearly half of all Israelis supported a continuation of military action and pointed to a decline in support for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud Party ahead of a general election scheduled for Jan. 22. Although Likud and its ally Israel Beiteinu are still on course to emerge as the largest bloc, Netanyahu has been criticized for bowing to international criticism by ending the Gaza campaign too early.

Morsi’s power play prompts fiery clashes across Egypt Aya Batrawy and Maggie Michael THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CAIRO, Egypt — Thousands of opponents of Egypt’s Islamist president clashed with his supporters in cities across the country Friday, burning several offices of the Muslim Brotherhood, in the most violent and widespread protests since Mohammed Morsi came to power, sparked by his move to grant himself sweeping powers. The violence, which left 100 people injured, reflected the increasingly dangerous polarization in Egypt over what course it will take nearly two years after the fall of autocrat Hosni Mubarak. Critics of Morsi accused him of seizing dictatorial powers with his decrees a day earlier that make him immune to judicial oversight and give him authority to take any steps against “threats to the revolution.” On Friday, the president spoke before a crowd of his supporters massed in front of his palace and said his edicts were necessary to stop a “minority” that was trying to block the goals of the revolution. “There are weevils eating away at the nation of Egypt,” he said, pointing to old regime loyalists he

In the Mediterranean city of Alexandria, anti-Morsi crowds attacked Brotherhood backers coming out of a mosque, raining stones and firecrackers on them. The Brothers held up prayer rugs to protect themselves and the two sides pelted each other with stones and chunks of marble, leaving at least 15 injured. The protesters then stormed a nearby Brotherhood office. State TV reported that

protesters burned offices of the Brotherhood’s political arm in the Suez Canal cities of Suez, Ismailia and Port Said, east of Cairo. In the capital Cairo, secu-

Egypt’s President Mohammed Morsi speaks to supporters in front of the presidential palace in Cairo on Friday as violence swept across the nation. Tahrir Square and in front of the nearby parliament building. Tens of thousands of activists massed in Tahrir itself, denouncing Morsi and chanting “Leave, leave” and “Morsi is Mubarak ... Revolution everywhere.” Many of them represented Egypt’s upper-class, liberal elite, which have largely stayed out of protests in past months but were prominent in the streets during the anti-Mubarak uprising that began Jan. 25, 2011. “We are in a state of revolution. He is crazy if he thinks he can go back to oneman rule,” one protester, Sara Khalili, said of Morsi. “If the Brotherhood’s slogan is ‘Islam is the solution’ ours is ‘submission is not

the solution,’ ” said Khalili, a mass communications professor at the American University in Cairo. “God does not call for submission to another man’s will.” Frustration had been growing for months with Morsi, Egypt’s first freely elected president, who came to office in June. Critics say the Muslim Brotherhood, from which he hails, has been moving to monopolize power and that he has done little to tackle mounting economic problems and continuing insecurity, much less carry out deeper reforms. Morsi’s supporters, in turn, say he has faced constant push-back from Mubarak loyalists and from the courts, where loyalists have a strong presence. The

courts have been considering a string of lawsuits demanding the dissolution of the Islamist-dominated assembly writing the next constitution. The courts already dissolved a previous version of the assembly and the Brotherhood-led lower house of parliament. Morsi made his move Thursday, at a time when he was bolstered by U.S. and international praise over his mediating of a ceasefire ending a week of battles between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. Only a day earlier, Morsi had met with U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton just before the truce was announced. Mustafa Kamel el-Sayyed, a Cairo University political science professor, said Morsi may be confident that the U.S. won’t pressure him on his domestic moves. “The U.S. administration is happy to work with an Islamist government (that acts) in accordance with U.S. interests in the region, one of which is definitely the maintaining of the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel” and protecting Israel’s security. U.S. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Friday that Morsi’s declarations “raise concern for many Egyptians and for the international community.”
