‘Stunning’ earth block technology employed By Paul Weideman This alternative building method seems just too simple. A worker digs soil using a Bobcat loader and dumps it into a trailer-mounted Earth Press machine. Each minute, four or five blocks of compressed earth pop out. A roller conveyer takes them right to the spot where workers are stacking them to build a wall. In June, architect and contractor Ed Boniface, Boniface + Associates, marveled at the process as a ranch house he designed went up near Puerto de Luna, about 15 miles south of Santa Rosa. Neither rebar nor mortar was necessary. “When the earth is compressed with the hydraulic press in the machine, the moisture on the surface facilitates adherance,” he said. “This thing puts out 2,400 blocks in a day. These guys are laying up walls as fast as they can. It’s absolutely stunning. “I was terrified at first at this idea of just stacking stuff up, but I contacted the State Construction Industries Division and the more research I did, the better it all looked.” The walls are now complete and Boniface’s crew is at work on all of the other elements of the 5,300-square-foot ranch house for the clients from Germany. The owner is Michael Behrens, a physicist and businessman who did research and discovered the technology of compressedearth blocks, or CEBs. The company that produces the Earth Press machines is Adobe International Inc., located in Milan, west of Albuquerque. The CEBs are very dense, and heavier than adobe. “People talk about adobe as being very environmentally friendly, green, but you have to get the right mix, mix it up, then there’s the backbreaking labor of setting it in the wooden molds on the ground, then flipping the bricks, then turning them on edge, then you have to pile them on palettes and drive them to the job site. “Also, with adobe you’re limited in how many courses you can do in a day, because the weight can squish out mortar and you need to let it dry.” The Earth Press machine delivers the blocks — each one 8 x 12 x 4 inches — near the wall being built, and you can move the machine to follow the wallmaking process. The exterior walls for the ranch house are 20 inches thick and the interior walls are 12 inches. In the typical CEB building, once the the walls are complete, a steel-reinforced concrete bond beam is poured around the wall tops to add strength and anchor the roof structure. Channels for wiring and plumbing are cut into the walls, then nylon or wire mesh is nailed onto the walls prior to stuccoing outside and plastering inside. Like adobe bricks, compressed-earth blocks provide great thermal mass but little insulation value. “CID requires that we add insulation and we’ll do sprayed-foam insulation on the exterior,” Boniface said. “One thing that makes me sleep better is that when you spray foam, it also helps to tie the wall together, plus it tightens up the house. This will be pretty air-tight.” CEBs offers building-design possibilities similar to what you have working with adobe. And of course both strategies use earth as the raw material. “The head guy in the 20

Architect/contractor Ed Boniface used a Milan, NM-manufactured Earth Press machine to rapidly build the walls of this ranch house near Puerto de Luna

Native American crew for the ranch house project looked around and about 20 feet away from the house site, he said, ‘This dirt will be fine.’ I had this vision that we would have to mix different kinds of earth, but that was it.” Henry Elkins, founder of Adobe International, said his company has worked in Africa and South America, as well as in the United States, and the local dirt has always been adequate. “It requires a good clay content and about 10 percent moisture,” he said. “When the dirt is first dug, a lot of times it’s pretty close to what we need. If it’s a little dry, we’ll sprinkle the dirt with water.” Adobe International was established in 1980. Its resumé includes a sale of 10 Earth Press machines to the government of Panama for affordable housing. People in Zacatecas, Mexico, built 500 homes over four years, using four of the machines. And in Mali, Adobe International machines are being used to build schoolhouses.

Boniface is already planning a second CEB project: a home in Tesuque. If, in the future, he were to decide to be “Mr. CEB” in his work as a contractor, he will have to decide which of the three Earth Press models to purchase. They’re priced between $25,000 and $50,000 — the top-of-the-line machine puts out 10 blocks per minute. Purchasing an Earth Press sounded like a good idea to the new owners of Creek Ranch on the Pecos River. That way, anytime they want to add an outbuilding, they can just get a three-man crew together and fire it up. For Boniface, the best part of the Creek Ranch project came after the walls had all been raised. “The Germans had a richtfest on June 30. In Germany, the entire community shows up when the last beam is in place and they tack an evergreen on top and they have a richtfest with food and drink and the architect is supposed to talk, thanking the owner for providing work for him and all the workers, and thanking the workers for what they have done. “It was so much fun. There were probably 150 people there sharing in this almost religious experience. We’re so used to slamming houses up and moving on, but this was all about family and community.”

SFCC student wins kitchen design award By Paul Weideman

athematics is like spinach. Even if you don’t love it, it’s good for you. Math helped Karen Klavuhn win a $1,300 Honorable Mention award in the 2012 National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) and GE Appliances Charette Competition. Klavuhn participated in the charette at Santa Fe Community College, where she is pursuing an associate degree in interior design, and a kitchen and bath certificate. She learned about this competition from Joanne Burns, her instructor. Burns, who earned her degree in interior design at Michigan State University, teaches beginning and advanced kitchen and bath classes at SFCC. She also takes students

on a field trip to the annual Kitchen and Bath Industry Show, most recently held in Chicago. There they view some 600 vendors of kitchen and bath products and learn about the newest choices in cabinets, countertops, plumbing fixtures, and appliances. “This charette competition simulates the students’ CKD [certified kitchen designer] exams,” Burns said. “The students are given three hours. It’s all hand-drafting. They’re given a choice of two appliance packages, a profile of the client [in this case a married couple with a 14-year-old daughter], and the floor space with windows and doors. They have to design a kitchen that would meet their needs.” More than 390 students from 31 colleges around the U.S. participated in the charette. Klavuhn and two other SFCC

students — Ambree Krueger and Kerry McDonald — were among the 81 finalists, each of whom received a $50 award. Klavuhn was one of five Honorable Mention winners in America. She is attending the community college following a career as a math and science teacher. So how did math help her in the design charette, exactly? “Well, they give you the basic outline of the room and you have to do all the square-foot measurements, then you have to figure out the dimensions and placement of the cabinets and refrigerator and everything else,” she said. Interior design will be a second career. “I’ve always sort of done this on my own, transforming spaces in remodels for myself and for others. It’s time to get paid for it, I guess.”

Kitchens… breaking out of the box! The kitchen, often referred to as the heart of the home, is a place to prepare and cook food and, depending on the size, can be used to entertain guests and to eat. Everyone has his or her own idea of the perfect kitchen. In the kitchen we not only prepare and consume food, we watch television, use computers, spend free time, get creative, and enjoy family and friends. Kitchens have evolved over time and now must accommodate interpreting these new habits. The design response to the individual and changing needs drives the design of the kitchen. In the homes of ancient Greece, this room was a central open-air patio; it was not until around 1800 that the stove, enclosing fire completely, made cooking indoors possible. As technology advances,

so do kitchens’ design and efficiency. The introduction of the kitchen island has lent more flexibility to the positioning of the kitchen cabinets and the kitchen sink, and helped make open-plan kitchens and dining rooms a reality. Walls that once separated the kitchen from the rest of the house are coming down! Open-concept kitchens are bigger than ever. Kitchens are projecting into great rooms where we spend our time. Appliances are smarter and more versatile than ever. Some appliances that I have utilized in my designs lately have been refrigerator and freezer modules from Thermador, refrigeration drawers and microwave drawers that fit under the counter, very convenient! Cabinetry is morphing as well as the

appliances, becoming more aesthetically pleasing than ever before, not to mention the storage and organizational capacity with more emphasis on horizontal space with drawers that glide smoothly open and close softly. It doesn’t end there… new materials for countertops, backsplashes and floors are influencing expressive kitchens. Apparently the consumer of today is breaking out of the box as well, and manufacturers of all things kitchen are working to fill this demand. Just wait to see the White Ice appliances from Whirlpool coming soon… “Always remember: If you’re alone in the kitchen and you drop the lamb, you can always just pick it up. Who’s going to know?” — Julia Child

Go local, not loco When national mortgage companies are placing television ads on every channel and in every timeslot, even during Sponge Bob Squarepants, you can tell that the lending industry is experiencing some tough competition. Most of these companies promise easy, hassle-free transactions that save you money. Sounds great, right? But does it really work that way? From our experience as Realtors, there are some things you need to know about online and out-of-state lenders. Santa Fe is unlike anywhere else and none of us would want it any other way. When choosing a mortgage broker, choose a Local. They are one of us and understand life in the City Different. They can be independent brokers or work for a national bank; just make sure their boots are on the ground here in Santa Fe. The smoothest transactions happen when you can talk to your lender across a desk, not across the continent. As for saving money, we have seen many buyers pay more for closing costs than they would have if they stayed with a local lender. 24

August 2012

What makes our city different? Well for a start, we have million-dollar homes off dirt roads and mobile homes that sell for almost $200,000. You just don’t find that in New Jersey. We have seen out-of-state lenders question appraisals and hold up transactions even on the day of closing. Worse, we had a Nevada lender hold a transaction up for weeks and then bail out because they determined the risk was too high. Things can get tied up with a local lender too, but the real bugaboo is that when things start getting tough, your out-of-state lender can’t be reached on the phone. They don’t return your calls and they just can’t be found. That’s when tempers start to flare and everyone goes crazy. New Mexico is known as a “wet state” and what that means in this: local lenders must table fund. In other words, the money must be at the title company before a closing can occur. But this requirement does not extend to those lenders coming in from out of state. Buyers must sign an affidavit stating that they are closing

without the lender’s funds. So everyone is left wondering when will the money get here? We have witnessed a transaction with a lender out of California. All parties closed as scheduled and the paperwork was faxed to the lender and we waited. And we waited and waited and waited. The transaction took almost two weeks to fund! Since a buyer usually cannot move into the house until it funds, guess who’s putting their belongings in storage and checking into the motel? And what of the seller who has already moved out and is ready to move on? The limbo created by lenders at this time creates hardship, stress, worry, and possible litigation that could all possibly have been avoided if a local lender were on the job. So if you’re working with an out-ofstate lender, it may be time to say “Bueno Bye” and call a broker in town. Local lenders earn our respect because they return their phone calls, they roll up their sleeves in the eleventh hour and most importantly, they are a part of the fabric of our great community. Out-of-state

lenders see you as a number on a file and you can’t just walk over to their office and get some answers. We would rather see our lender at a soccer game than on a television commercial.

A stunner on the Eastside Photographs by Jane Phillips/The New Mexican unless otherwise noted

By Paul Weideman This beautiful house on Santa Fe’s historic Eastside is nestled in a garden glory, the many species of plants nourished by water from the Acequia Madre and from a well on the property. Mature trees offer sanctuaries of shade, and many also provide a bounty of fruit — there are at least four varieties of pear trees as well as apple, plum, quince, and apricot. Architect/builder Kate Chapman bought this lot from Mrs. J.P. Victory in the mid-1920s and built what originally was a one-bedroom house. In 1936 Dr. Victor Berchtold bought the house; when he died in 1997, the current owners bought it from his widow. There were substantial additions in 1950 and 1998, the latter done in consultation with architect David Gibbons and builder Fritz Staver. Today the home is 3,808 square feet with four bedrooms and five bathrooms. The interior of the Spanish-Pueblo Revival home boasts brick and wood floors and hardtroweled plaster walls. The house is heated by an in-floor radiant system; the controls, and the furnace, are in a small basement. The charming living room (which was the bedroom in the original house) has a plankson-vigas ceiling, a classic-design fireplace, and distinctive folding shutters with herringbone-carved panels below and, above, glass-light panels in a variety of shapes. Equipment in the kitchen includes a 6-burner Garland cooktop/oven, and a host of white-painted wood cabinets lends a comfortable feeling of country simplicity. A big island holds double stainless-steel sinks and a wood worktop. One of the many special features in the house at 350 Delgado Street is a little, painted 28

window illuminated by a light within. The painting is attributed to Willard Clark, who was Berchtold’s brother-in-law. The window used to be from the bathroom opening onto a portal that was later enclosed. Another artist’s touch is visible in the master bedroom. There, the kiva fireplace overmantle bears a fresco by Olive Rush. A door leading out to a leafy portal has a singular pointed top — a Kate Chapman trademark — and this one has, in place of a postigo (speakeasy), a cluster of circular cutouts for peeks without/within. In the master bathroom is a splendid, deep bathtub; an alacena (inset wall cupboard) for storage, two basins set in a slab of dark-green marble, and a kiva fireplace. The three other bedrooms are all en suite. “This is very special, with an amazing location and a big lot [almost 0.8 acres],” said Realtor K.C. Martin. “You rarely see a four-bedroom house in this area and the fact that the owners did bathrooms off of every bedroom is wonderful. It’s a real family home.” A large portal is just outside French doors from the kitchen and dining room. Beyond the brick-paved portal is a luxurious lawn area bordered by expertly tended plants. Flagstone walkways here and in the other landscaped areas around the house meander among plantings of Clematis, iris, roses, hollyhocks, purple coneflowers, larkspur, Japanese tree peonies, and chest-high, purple-flowered Nepeta sibirica. There’s also a tomato patch and two work sheds. The Delgado Street property is zoned RC8 (Residential Compound District). Martin, with Sotheby’s International Realty, has it listed for $2,425,000.

Is MoIsture InvadIng Your HoMe? Thinking Like Water

| Ed Crocker

Moisture problems originating below the surface and affecting the base of walls are among the most common problems we encounter in Santa Fe homes. Even in newer homes, waterproofing materials may have been applied incorrectly or missing altogether.

THE WARNING SIGNS

505/982.2448 info@crockerltd.net www.crockerltd.net

n

Damp walls

n

Musty smell

n

Peeling, blistering, or cracking paint or stucco

n

White deposits on surfaces (efflorescence)

n

Crusty, powdery, chipping concrete or masonry

n

Separation of plaster from walls

n

Evidence of wood rot or decay

Call today for a free onsite evaluation.

Adding to the dangers is that as years of dirt and debris gather at wall bases, the grade around buildings gradually changes. Instead of water draining away, buildings are left in a crater, surrounded by a moat. Some of the more popular “high-tech” solutions we have developed for retarding the flow of moisture into wall bases rely upon a variety of synthetic materials known generically as “geo-drains.” When used correctly, these porous fabrics are used to trap water and carry it away. There is no limit to how these materials can be used; it only takes thinking like water to concoct them. For example, in the shallow, tight soils typical of canyon areas around Santa Fe, moisture is retained almost indefinitely, and a system must be designed to carry the water offsite. A 16” deep trench is dug along the base of the wall; geodrain material is laid facing away from the wall, with its edge inserted into a continuously slotted 4” PVC pipe. Trapped water drains into the pipe, which is sloped to drain to daylight or into a deep, gravel-filled drywell. Key to this system is positive site drainage, meaning that the trench is backfilled and compacted with clean, screened earth sloping away from the walls. This is just one example of the many different systems we have designed—each unique to the site’s particular conditions. In each case, common and inexpensive materials were manipulated to accommodate specific problems. n HOME AUGU ST 201 2

SantaFeinBloom

Containing beauty Summer in Santa Fe is a time for indulging the senses. The town is infused in culinary aromatherapy flowing out from area cafes, while traveling musicians master their chords and crowds in the Plaza under starry nights. Stroll downtown and see hanging baskets heavy laden with perfect petunias, window boxes at the Inn of the Governor’s overflowing with sweet alyssum and zinnias — even Paseo de Peralta’s median strips are filled with grasses, penstemons and California poppies. It’s almost sensory overload, but if you’re like actress, gardener and local resident Ali MacGraw, a woman who lives for flowers, this is the time of year to catch gardens at their best. But what if you are a frustrated gardener, the kind who lacks the space, time or proper soil conditions to plant your own flower bed? The view can seem punishing, but, fortunately, there is an option that allows everybody to enjoy a blooming atmosphere despite the size of the space. Container gardens are a great alternative that can actually save you money if you do them right. Downsizing is the

norm today, as is a concern to save water. Container gardens can help and if you chose xeric plants, they can often become self-sufficient. Types of containers run the gamut, from terra cotta and resin to coconut-lined iron baskets and imported porcelain pots. You can really use anything, as long as there is proper drainage and room for the plant to grow. So what types of flowers do you want to see popping up from your pot? While we are well into the summer, it’s certainly not over, with many varieties getting ready to bloom late into the season, some lasting up to that first frost and beyond. Annuals, or flowers that grow for just a season, are a popular choice for high impact and quick growth. Impatiens, petunias, geraniums, lobelia, sweet potato vine and ornamental grasses make beautiful displays, but at the end of the summer, they are gone for good. Perennials (plants lasting more than two years), are the choice if you want them to come back. While the bloom time may be limited, combining different varieties will create a continual growth

experience. Anything from agapanthus to roses and lilies can be planted. The more creative, the better. Living in the high desert, droughtresistant (xeric) plants are an option, and one that is both eco-friendly and seasonally repetitive if chosen and planted correctly. Xeric plants are the number-one choice for those wishing to recreate the landscape. Some gardeners may think they are boring, but MacGraw is not one of them. “There is real beauty in our landscape and I find so many varieties of flowers that stay in that realm as opposed to not,” shares MacGraw. An avid gardener for over 20 years, she and her garden guru, Darlene Deale, have fun coming up with flower combinations to fill her 60-plus Mexican-style pots. While she’s sentimental about some plants she grew up with in New England, MacGraw says authenticity is important. Her favorites include blue flax, Mexican paintbrush, asters, and wild sunflowers. No matter what you fill your containers with, creativity, sustainability and love are

C A R O LE LA N G R A LL

key to having a successful blooming season. As MacGraw says, beauty in containers can be just as lovely as any sprawling garden. Carole has been in the floriculture industry for over 23 years, from wholesale and retail sales to public outreach and events planning. She is a Master Gardener and is an advocate, lecturer and supporter of New Mexico’s sustainable, local flower farms. As the owner of the award-winning “A Garden of Earthly Delights” floral design studio, she has two locations: Santa Fe and Baltimore, MD.

TitleNews

The past can determine your future The past can determine your future Generally, a person thinks of insurance in terms of the payment of future loss due to the occurrence of some future event. For instance, a party obtains automobile insurance in order to pay for future loss occasioned by a future “fender bender” or for the future theft of the car. Title insurance is a unique form of insurance. It provides coverage for future claims or future losses due to title defects which are created by some past event (that is, prior to the acquisition of the property.) Will You Get Clear Title? It is of utmost importance that you receive clear title to the property when you purchase real estate. Title insurance provides you with a twofold protection. How Do You Find Out What Claims Exist? In order to determine the status of title, Southwestern Title conducts a diligent search of the public records for those documents associated with the property. The 48

August 2012

company then examines those recorded documents in order to determine if there are any rights or claims that may have an impact upon the title to the property. These recorded defects, liens and encumbrances are reported to you prior to your purchase of the property. Once reported, these matters can be accepted, resolved or extinguished prior to the closing of the transaction. In addition, you are protected against any loss or damage resulting from recorded defects, liens or encumbrances upon the title that are unreported to you and which are within the scope of coverage of the particular policy issued in the transaction. This is the first benefit you receive from title insurance. What About Undiscovered Claims? The title to the property that you have purchased could be seriously threatened or lost completely by hazards which are considered “hidden risks.” “Hidden Risks” are those matters, rights or claims that

HOME

BLACK CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW

are not shown by the public records and, therefore, are not discoverable by a search and examination of those public records. Matters such as forgery, incompetency or incapacity of the parties, fraudulent impersonation, and unknown errors in the records are examples of “hidden risks” that could provide a basis for a claim after you have purchased the property. In order to protect you against this possibility, Southwestern Title provides insurance coverage for such claims. This is the second benefit you receive from title insurance. How Does a Title Insurance Policy Protect Against All These Claims? If a claim is made against your insured title, the issuing title-insurance company protects you by (1) defending your title, if necessary; and (2) bearing the cost of settling the case, if it proves valid. Only One Premium Unlike other forms of insurance, the original premium is your only cost as long

O TIS PH ILLIPS

as you or your heirs own the property. There are no annual payments to keep your owner’s title insurance policy in force. Otis Phillips is marketing director with Southwestern Title and Escrow. He has been in the title business since 1978 and has served both in the independent title agency, direct office, and underwriter arena in 14 states. otisp@sftitles.com or 505.946.2995.

Investment properties: rebuild net worth The Federal Reserve (the Fed) announced that the median U.S. household lost nearly 39 percent of its wealth from 2007 to 2010. Middle-class families took the biggest hit because much of their net worth is in their homes. The Fed has extended “Operation Twist,” selling $400 billion in short-term Treasuries since September and buying longer-term Treasuries, through December 2012. This additional exchange, using $267 billion in securities, is expected to keep rates down. It’s a great time to consider strategies to rebuild net worth with investment properties. For example, for a $250,000 home loan ($333,333 home purchase with minimum 25 percent down for an investment property), a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage near 4 percent would cost approximately $1,500 a month, including escrows. Where do you find the down payment? Borrowing from equity in your primary residence or securities that you own are options to consider. Studies show more people are renting; therefore, rents are expected to rise and vacancies to fall. Local real-estate experts agree. Candice Jager of Candice & Company asserts, “There appears to be some displacement with past homeowners, but it doesn’t seem to have an effect on the rent they are willing to pay. Consequently, investors are able to take advantage of the lower pricing with ready, willing and able tenants to pay a fair rental market price.” Anna Vanderlaan of Keller Williams comments, “A sound investment should have a return. I am seeing that now, like never before, in single- and multi-family investments. Now is the time to invest in the real-estate market in Santa Fe. Not only are there many properties priced below replacement cost, but I’m seeing good to excellent returns on investment even on single-family homes that are move-in-ready. There are 85 homes actively listed under $200,000, 23 of them below $150,000. Six years ago that didn’t exist. Fixeruppers have become more viable as well. I’ve seen properties where the purchase price plus cost of repair is less than the resale value in the current market. Property prices are low, and money is inexpensive with rates around 4 percent. It’s amazing. Santa Fe is affordable.”

FRANCIS PHILLIPS “Short term rentals did decline somewhat over the last few years but have come back stronger than ever,” said Suzy St. Clair of St. Clair Properties. “With owners opting to rent out their houses rather than sell, rental inventory is growing. More people are opting to rent short-term while making other life choices, resulting in prospective renters for the growing rental inventory.” Melissa Adair of Santa Fe Properties adds, “There are still so many incredible bargains on the market; it makes sense to invest right now. Both long-term and short-term rental markets in Santa Fe are strong and very good local management companies can handle the marketing and day-to-day needs. I am a fan of www.vrbo.com and www.homeaway. com, which are excellent marketing tools for owners who want to manage their vacation rentals.” Currently, approximately two out of three homebuyers will finance with a home loan. In years ahead, home prices are expected to rebound. Today’s buyers will be rewarded with interest savings and increasing property values while their renters pay most, if not all, of the home mortgage. Are you ready to own your property free and clear in 15 or 30 years? Allow your renters to help re-build your net worth.

He has served as director of business development for national mortgage companies. He and his mortgage partners have funded and built three homes for Santa Fe Habitat for Humanity.

Sixteen entries on Parade of Homes By Paul Weideman

I

t’s just about time for that annual opportunity to get inside a few of Santa Fe’s very cool new houses — and several great remodels. Haciendas — A Parade of Homes, sponsored by the Santa Fe Area Home Builders Association, features 16 homes. That’s down from 30 or 40 when the market was really moving a few years ago, but this is still a tantalizing home tour. (Who ever had time to see 35 houses, anyway?) The offerings for 2012 range from a 750-square-foot condo (a $137,000 remodel) in the South Capitol District to new, multi-million-dollar houses. The tour is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, Aug. 1012 and 17-19. A ticket is $15 and one ticket is all you need to visit any of the houses on any of the days. Many of the builders are participating in a special Twilight Tour, which is held from 4 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 16, with free admission. New this year is The Value of Design, sponsored by the Santa Fe chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA). “This will be held at Jay Etkin Gallery, which will also be the tour information center,” said Dalinda Bangert, administrative director of the Santa Fe Area Home Builders Association. “It will be open an hour early, at 10 a.m., if people want to go there for tickets, to see the architecture exhibits, and get a tour map. The Value of Design, created by architect Dan Featheringill, is a gallery display of work by architects and Haciendas builders. It begins with a 6-8 p.m. reception on Thursday, Aug. 9, and will be open on regular tour days from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. A highlight of the AIA event happens on Saturday, Aug. 11, when four Santa Fe architects will give talks: 9 a.m. — “Introduction to Architecturally Enhanced Rain Catchment” by Bob Kreger, of Kreger Design Build; 11 a.m. — “The Interrelationship of Sustainable Construction and Quality Design” by Jon Dick, Archaeo Architects; 1 p.m. — “Roofs and Undersides” by James Horn, Spears Architects; and 3 p.m. — “Spirit of Place: Site-Specific Design Process” by Alexander Dzurec, Autotroph Design. It is hoped that the AIA gallery and talks will be a regular adjunct of the Parade of Homes.

The competition element of Haciendas again promises to award the tour’s best in home craftsmanship, and excellence and innovation in design, kitchens, and outdoor living spaces, as well as today’s allimportant sustainability categories. “I believe they have the same categories as last year: Grand Green, Energy Efficiency, Water Efficiency, Site & Resource Efficiency, and Indoor Air Quality in two different categories for smaller and larger homes,” Bangert elaborated. “The difference for 2012 is they’re having the builders fill out not just the HERS [Home Energy Rating System] figure but also a Home Heating Index number. That evaluates the shell, how well-insulated the structure is, and therefore gives a good idea of what it will cost to heat and cool the building.” Tour maps can be found at the Jay Etkin Gallery, 703 Camino de la Familia, and at Century Bank and Los Alamos National Bank locations, at Dahl Plumbing, and at Builders’ Source. Buy tickets at the Lensic Performing Arts Center box office or during Haciendas at any tour home.

SocialNetworking

Make change your strategy By now most of you are well aware of how social networking is changing how we communicate about everything from what’s new at Indian Market to what’s happening in real estate. Whether entrepreneur or global corporation, you know your customers are using social-media sites, such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+ and Pinterest to find people and businesses they can get to know and perhaps eventually trust. At the same time, smart phones and the internet continue to accelerate how we are connected to each other. Our 21st-century lifestyle is online, interactive and no longer private. Conversations are public and what we do online stays online. For some, this is beyond scary. For others, it is the future now. There is no map. Only your own experience can teach you about social networking. Once phones were ONLY about talking, then they evolved into a way to reach out and touch someone. Today,

smart phones will correct your spelling, answer questions, and truly change your interaction with other humans, machines and your environment. Social networking is feeding into this communication revolution. How can you keep up and not be overwhelmed? It is easier if you make change your strategy and focus on being more creative and authentic, rather than stale and boring. Social networking gives you leverage and a voice. Look in the mirror and update your profile picture (avatar) or logo. Remember social networking is about the “real” you. Next, look at your bio and add some personality. Let people know what you are passionate about doing. Make sure you are following, liking and connecting to your customers! The odds are extremely high they are online searching for you and your business as well as talking about you and your business. Humans love to talk and this social-media revolution is all about talking online. It is important to

monitor your reputation and engage your customers. Your presence on any one of the social-networking sites will allow you to listen to your customers, follow them, and interact with them. Let everyone know you are not a fearful social networker. Make it easy for people to find you and your business. Create a link to your social-network accounts on your web page, put them on your business card, and add then to your email signature. People are online looking for business relationships with real people. Like you, they are using social networking to find someone in an organization or company they can get to know, like and trust. You are not the only newbie. We are more in control of how we use these new tools and mobile apps than we realize. How we use them changes how we communicate, find information and make decisions. Remember to treat people with respect, and pay attention to helping them rather than pitching them. Focus on being hu-

Take care during peak-demand time Summer heat is here and with it our peak water- and energy-usage days. With the high temperatures in July and August, our water use soars and our electricity use shoots up as we use our air conditioning fans. But there are easy ways to cut our peak usage during the summer. Peak usage is what utilities planners must plan for and size supply to. Last year, the City of Santa Fe’s peak water use was 19,000,000 gallons per day. So far this year our peak water use has been 15,809,000 gallons. This is more than twice as much as our normal winter use. More visitors, hotter and longer days, and more outside activities all contribute to this increase. Although it has been predicted that we will have a wetter summer this year, so far we are at only 39 percent of normal precipitation. Hopefully the prediction that we’re leaving La Niña and entering El Niño is correct. Unfortunately it will take more than a significant drenching or two to make up the deficit we’re in.

Overall it’s looking to be another drought year. A recent study found that the United States has not received so little precipitation since the 1930s. New Mexico is dry, and so is the rest of the country. Is this a new normal? Peak usage is especially a problem for us in the Southwest. It is when we push our electrical and water needs to the max, creating an upward spiral of demand because the increased use of one requires increased use of the other. The generation of more electricity requires more water, and when we use more water (for landscaping, for instance), we use more electricity to pump, filter, and deliver water to our homes. Reducing consumption lowers our monthly bills and it reduces the need to build new power plants and/or acquire new, more expensive water rights. Saving energy and water during these periods is easy and cost-effective. Outside water use during the summer is on average about 44 percent of our total water

consumption. Cutting down your outside water usage is as easy as 1-2-3: 1) Water only during the cooler hours (i.e., before 10 a.m. and after 6 p.m.); 2) Avoid planting new plants during the hottest months; and 3) Check your irrigation system for costly leaks. You can also install a rain detector to shut off the irrigation system when it is not required during our monsoon months. Available at local irrigation supply stores, these units cost as little as $30. The City of Santa Fe also offers a rebate on these units. Information is available at irrigation supply stores and at the Water Utilities office on San Mateo Road. Saving energy can also be extremely easy and cost-effective. Incandescent light bulbs are energy-inefficient and also generate lots of heat. Almost all hardware stores carry compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs) and now even some carry LED light bulbs, which use even less electricity and generate a fraction of the heat.

Saving water and saving energy is one good way to save yourself money, help the environment, forego future cost increases, and help your community.

Furniture, more at new consignment shop By Paul Weideman Take a hop over to The Consignment Warehouse and check out the variety. A couple weeks after the business’s first anniversary on June 1, the inventory included a church pew from England, an old safe that was retrofitted with drawers by the importer, African serpentine sculptures and masks and an Ashanti fertility statue, an old rotating office chair, and a lone Art Deco table that Tracie Jansen believed would be gone very soon. “Mid-century modern is hot,” she said. Jansen and her business partner, Curtis Uhlemann, stock a good assortment of dressers, chests, beds, and lamps at The Consignment Warehouse, located behind Home Depot at 2357 Fox Road. Jansen and her husband, Dave, and Uhlemann have ARCOS Dance, a contemporary dance company based in Santa Fe. Uhlemann, a choreographer, is artistic director and Dave and Tracie Jansen are executive director and operations director, respectively. The Jansens are also a home-building team, but that industry has been a bit slow since the 2008 financial crash. “We had the dance company, but we wondered what we would do in the daytime,” she said. And thus the consignment store. They found the 3,500-square-foot building on Fox Road, did a big painting and texturing job, then added some high windows at the back to brighten the space. “Our concept is simple,” Tracie Jansen said. “People consign items with us for three months. After each 30-day period, items are reduced 10 percent for even more affordable shopping. Which also means repurposing furniture and accessories as an eco-friendly trend is warmly embraced everywhere, by locals and visitors alike. “Stephen Etre and Glen Smith of Stephen’s A Consignment Gallery are friends of ours. They said they needed a place to send their overflow and we had plenty of room. They’re very generous. “We are trying to stick with furniture pieces, rather than a lot of small things and knick-knacks. We have higher-end, imported teak pieces and also quite a few rugs — we definitely have the space, so they can be displayed open on the floor.” “Right now we’ve found a lot of people are interested in functional furniture, so sofas, tables and chairs,” Uhlemann added. “And a lot of people are downsizing so 58

August 2012

they’re looking for smaller, nicer pieces. People are moving away and they drop off their furniture. We also get designers, stagers, and movie-production people: the Longmire TV show people have rented and purchased pieces. “Some people will bring in their furniture they can’t look at anymore and consign it, then walk around and buy different things. The recycling element is really cool.” Everything handled by the business is by consignment, a 50-50 split with the owners. There are about 500 consigners, mostly people from Santa Fe but also from Albuquerque, Española, Abiquiu, and Las Vegas. Accurate, reliable recordkeeping is critical in consignment. Jansen and Uhlemann found a good point-of-sale program especially designed for the consignment business, and a device that prints out price tags with bar-codes. “The most important thing about this business is tracking everything,” she said. “We don’t own anything. If someone brings it in and trusts us with their merchandise, we have to track everything.” “And this system we have is very fast,” Uhlemann said. “If someone comes in with a few pieces, we’ll agree on a price and enter it into the system and it will spit tags out right away. If they just take 10 or 15 minutes to look around, we can give them their formal list of items, and we also e-mail that information to them. “We’ve had a really good response. People love the space, they love the warehouse idea, they love the mix that we have, and the prices, and they really like us.” The Consignment Warehouse is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. The phone is 471-6921.

OurwaterQuality

About safety of Buckman water supply “Is our water safe?” is a recurring question. The answer is yes. Treated water from the Buckman Direct Diversion (BDD) off the Rio Grande is EPA-compliant as specified in the Safe Drinking Water Act. This is the set of regulations with which the city must comply. Whether or not one believes the EPA’s criteria to be sufficiently protective of public health is another issue. As recently as late last month, there was a community water forum addressing public concerns about the safety of the water from Buckman wells and the BDD project. The wells are one issue, since they are known to contain naturally occurring arsenic and uranium; but the inference that documented legacy contaminants from Los Alamos National Laboratory occur in treated city water, and presumably exceed levels harmful to our health is, to my knowledge, undocumented. When Buckman well (aquifer) water is blended with water from other sources, the product water falls below the EPA’s

maximum contamination levels (MCLs) for arsenic, uranium and all other regulated contaminants. BDD water (diverted from the Rio Grande under the San JuanChama Project and Rio Grande water rights) passes through multiple stages of treatment. EPA compliance dictates that the water be tested for alpha particles, beta particles and photon activity, combined radium (Ra-226 and Ra-228), and uranium. In a pre-construction evaluation of the effectiveness of the proposed BDD system, Kerry Howe noted that there was a close correlation between high alpha and beta radioactivity and high water turbidity during storm events, and that ceasing diversions during storm events would be a way to reduce the risk of taking in water with potentially high contamination levels. Through its early notification system (ENS) installed for the purpose of automatically shutting down diversion, the BDD control room monitors real-time flow rates through gauges positioned in

Los Alamos Canyon. Both the BDD and the New Mexico Environment Department have monitoring equipment at the diversion site. When the project was shut down for six weeks during the summer of 2011, it was because of ash in the Rio Grande from the Las Conchas fires and not because of data transmitted from the ENS. Howe also noted that radionuclides adsorb (adhere) onto fine sediments and would be removed in the coagulation/ filtration process. On behalf of clients, we have had two BDD samples, collected when the Buckman wells were not contributing, tested by an independent lab and test results indicated that uranium was not detected. Groups concerned about BDD water safety could direct some of their financial resources to have an independent, qualified entity test BDD treated water for anthropogenic (LANL-origin) radionuclides and release the results. The samples should be collected by an NMED-cer-

tified sampler with both city and group representatives present to witness the collection procedure and the execution of the paper trail (chain of custody). Blind, coded samples should be sent to a certified radionuclide testing lab which observes EPA testing protocol and which is not under contract to LANL or the city. S TEP H EN WIMA N

Bringing properly collected, witnessed and independently tested lab results to the table could expedite drawing conclusions from numbers, not inference, and facilitate fact-based and meaningful dialogue.
