Infill Houses Lancaster

The Infill houses are designed to exceed the current green building standards by 15% on average.( The 3rd plan is almost 30% above current base codes )

We have achieved these thresholds by taking a wholelistic approach to design. Each element is value engineered to provide the most gain for the least amount of economic impact.

Starting with the basics: We used quality insulation, modern solar reflective glazing, and efficient forced air units. Secondly, we established higher standards for the construction of the homes to provide a long lifespan with minimal maintenance. Third, we had the HVAC system, ducting, and the entire house leak tested to assure compliance with the current stringent energy standards.

The creation of these residences did not stop with the structure. Careful thought was put into site design and water conserving landscape and irrigation. We have proved the effectiveness of the desertscape concept in modern construction.

All of the above design elements are simply contributing factors to a well layed out home with wide appeal to today’s current family structures. 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, efficient kitchens, front porches, and well thought out rear patio’s all lend themselves to a quality of life neccessary in today’s economic conditions. Exterior detailing reflects the historical context of the neighborhood.

The future occupants of these homes will have energy and water costs from 25% to 75% less on average than similar homes in the area, depending on living habits and intensity of use.

Starting within the next month, DSA Scooter accesories will begin distributing the brand new V2i decks from District. Its going to be a major change for the company. Noticibly the largest change in them is going to be the new integrated headsets, which will really raise the bar for them, putting them in ranks with such companies as Phoenix and TSI. Of course both of the decks from Phoenix and TSI are a little heavier and sturdier than the district decks, but on the other hand the district decks are lighter and less expensive if you are on a budget. Other changes include some new color choices including an army green and dark pink. The new decks will also have a little bit different of a headtube style but not by much, as well as a new logo in the form of a clown on the front of the headtube. Some of the deck graphics will be changed up too and from what I see it looks like there may be a few signature decks.

As a scholar, Pierson has maintained a 4.15 GPA and is ranked third in her class. She has been on the Principal’s List and the California Scholastic Federation each semester.

Aimee has earned the Association of Christian Schools International awards for academics and athletics, and their All-American scholar award.

In her spare time, Pierson volunteers at Valley Bible soccer camps, the Desert Christian auction, and at her church. She plans to pursue a degree in Business/Sports Management at one of several schools which have offered her either academic or athletic scholarships.

“As an all-around athlete, scholar and volunteer, Aimee is an inspiration. We need more students like her,” said Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris.

Recipients of the Athlete of the Month are selected based on community involvement, academic and athletic accomplishments.

How to Keep Flowers Fresh – Lancaster/Palmdale

Making flowers last longer.  Begin with fresh flowers.  Remove the leaves and clean the portion of the stem that will be under or near the water in a clean vase.  Clean, clear water @ room temperature is best.  Remember to change the water daily, and when you do, also recut the flower stems.  Give all flowers a fresh cut with a knife or snippers, woody stems can be pounded. Flowers normally only intake water at the bottom of their stems.  This increases water intake.  Flowers like conditions, cool, dark, no breeze, moisture.  Some types of flowers last a day, some last a couple weeks, this is nature, even though man has attempted to jump in and improve it…questions call us @888.948.6006, AV Florist
