Your style choices include:

Double-hung. The most common kitchen window is the classic double-hung unit that slides up and down and
provides a minimum of 50 percent ventilation. It's difficult to operate when situated over a counter or sink and is not
a good idea over a cooktop. Double-hung windows are the preferred style for traditional kitchens and may be
required in historic homes.

Rostrata Builders News Roof
This house uses trusses for the roof framing. Trusses are pre-fabricated, triangulated wooden structures used to
support the roof. The alternative is to build up the roof's frame with 2x8s and 2x10s. Trusses are quite common these
days because they have five big advantages from the builder's standpoint:

* Trusses are incredibly strong.
* Because they are built strictly from shorter lengths of 2x4 lumber, they are generally a lot less expensive than the
* You can have just about any shape custom-built, and this allows interesting features like cathedral ceilings at low
* You can span a large distance with a truss and the truss transmits all of the weight to the exterior walls. Therefore,
none of the interior walls are "load-bearing," so they can go anywhere and are easily moved later.
* Trusses go up quickly!

In general, bright and brushed/antiqued brass hardware are considered elegant traditional, nickel-finish steel is
traditional, wrought iron or wood is rustic traditional, and shiny chrome and enameled steel are modern. However,
shape can also affect whether a particular metal "reads" modern or classic. You have more choices than you may

* Parquet is patterned wood flooring made of 5/16-inch-thick geometric shapes puzzled together to create larger
pieces about eight- to twelve inches square. Of course, more pieces mean more opportunities for moisture to seep in
and warp or loosen flooring, but with its multidirectional patterns, parquet is less likely than strip or plank flooring
to draw attention to a floor with irregular dimensions.

Applying Caulk
Caulk is the bead of rubbery stuff between your tub, shower or sink and the wall, or between your toilet's outer rim
and the floor. It creates a seal that protects floors and walls from moisture. It also glues itself in place, which makes
applying it an easy one step process. Over time, caulk can discolor or deteriorate, leaving your home vulnerable to
water damage and mold growth.

Description: Rostrata Builders Company - Rostrata Builders Blog Kitchen Lighting Fixtures The options are practically limitless. Contemporary fixtures in chrome and colored glass are often simple and Space Age inspired, hanging like jewels in the functional space. Traditional fixtures go beyond the ubiquitous stained-glass pendant lamp to include classical sconces, green glass-and-brass banker's lamps, white hobnailed milkglass shades, and more. Rostrata Builders Bio Laminate Kitchen Floors One of the newer synthetic flooring options, laminate flooring looks like wood, stone, or marble because the pattern is actually a photograph of the "real thing." Laminate flooring is made of multiple layers of material including a super-hard plastic top layer over a layer with a photographic imprint of wood or stone. Rough Plumbing Rough plumbing involves installing all of the water lines, sewer lines and bathtubs. Tubs are normally installed early because: * One-piece shower-and-tub units are big and often cannot be maneuvered into place later in the construction cycle. They also frequently "change size" -- that is, the size drawn on the plans and the size delivered often differ significantly. * A full tub is heavy. Therefore, the tub is installed and filled so that the frame can settle quickly. This step prevents cracked walls and tile the first time someone uses the tub.
