Bench made of keys out of the boards
This may not be the most comfortable chair in the world, but you have to admit the concept behind it is pretty cool.
But, taking in consideration the not so bling-y material that it is made of, it could be the best find of your lifetime. All the keys with which we type, like the A, the B and the numbers make this bench. I really don’t know about the level of comfort that it would give you, but all I can say is, it could be a great piece to add lost charm to your house.
The Wolfgang Keyboard Bench comes from designer Nolan Herbut, who’s keyboards experiments also feature a lamp made out of keys. Getting back to our chair, at a first glance I had the feeling that it is some sort of fancy, expensive crystal furniture item, due to the way it sparks in the light. But the fact that is made out of letters, numbers and question marks is even better than that.
The only draw back is the fact that it could get really uncomfortable in a short while. And it is not all that hard to picture how standing on a few keyboards stuck together should feel. However, we think this is a pretty fun item to have around. It could also serve as a typing machine simulator when things get boring around the house.
We have some articles that I would like to recommend to the readers.
Foundation Repair And Maintenance
We have described here the type of foundations, what is a foundation inspection and what should be included in a good foundation inspection checklist. We can discover problems in the foundation to make us ask ourselves if it is safe to live in a house with foundation problems.
To repair a foundation, the service provider requires an underpinning system using piers: push piers vs helical piers where helical piers are preferable for residential real estate objects.
We have water in the crawlspace: I explain what to do when the crawlspace is flooded, if it is normal to have water in the crawlspace after a heavy rain, and the importance to perform a crawlspace waterproofing thereafter, normally by installing a vapor barrier. I describe how to improve the air quality in the crawlspace and to accomplish this, I am reluctant to use lime powder in this article, where I explain the pros and cons, as I would be using lime powder only to avoid the dangers of raw sewage under house.
We discuss the sill plate replacement cost and how to avoid the outdoor sump pump freezing, because it happened to me once.
There are always new methods for repairing foundations. One of them that we investigate here is the Powerbrace foundation repair method.
Animals can be a problem when they live near the foundation: In the following articles we describe how to remove them and how to prevent them from digging and burrowing. The articles are about animals digging holes around the foundation or burrowing below concrete.
In regards to basements, I describe how to solve the hydrostatic pressure in the basement. I provide to you some reasons of why we will need a certified specialist to deal with a risky sewage backup in the basement and how to deal with a basement drain backing up something that is no a DYI project at all.
There are some interesting articles here, in this Framing category. I refer to sistering floor joists, as a methodology to reinforce existing floor joists with some emphasis on sistering 2x6 floor joists or sistering with 2x8 instead, and about the building code for sistering joists.
About water heaters, we have a complete guide about water heater types and I also explain in detail the difference between a mobile home water heater and the standard water heater of a normal house. I also describe in detail how to remove the heating element without an element wrench using just a socket.
After the lifecycle of the water heater is over, I reveal to you different options to proceed with its disposal.
