in-duct air filters, look for the minimum efficiency reporting value (MERV) to tell how efficiently they pull particles from the air. MERV ratings range from 1 to 20; a system rated 7 or higher is about as effective as a HEPA filter. When shopping for a room air purifier, look for a clean air delivery
Energy Star label on any air purifier indicates better energy efficiency but does not necessarily mean it is more effective — so be sure to check the MERV or CADR rating.
Perched on a bluff overlooking Block Island Sound, the property is a flag lot at the edge of a new subdivision, bordered on three sides by water, wetlands, and woods. The client asked us to design a house with a minimal impact on the pristine landscape, maximum exposure to the views and all the amenities of a year round vacation home.

If it works where you live, arrange your furniture next to an open window. The smells that come from just simple fresh air are very calming. If you have a fragrant tree or vegetable garden outside, an open window will allow these scents into your home.

The Birchgrove House project involved alterations and additions to a free-standing 1889, heritage-listed Victorian Regency residence. The design approach was to refurbish and expose the significant features of the original building to then act as a backdrop to a new living pavilion to be located within the rear garden. This new pavilion is also used to capture water for reuse, provide good light and cross ventilation, and to control the western sun. The pavilion is deliberately separated from the existing building...
