santa barbara: Craig Allen: Real Estate Isn’t Cheap… - 05/16/12 07:37 PM
Most real estate “experts” commenting on where the market is currently will state that, due to the significant declines since the peak in 2007 and a number of other factors, home prices are either bottoming or have already bottomed, depending on which local market they are discussing. Unfortunately for them, and for anyone who owns a home, there are powerful reasons why this is not the case.
Real estate pundits point to the recent price declines, improving unemployment, home price affordability statistics, gross-domestic product, growth, stock market performance, low interest rates, improving bank balance sheets and lending activity, improving foreclosure rates … (1 comments)

santa barbara: Craftsman Movement - Architecture in Santa Barbara California - 03/15/11 04:08 PM
Craftsman Architecture byAnthony Grumbine.
Fundamental to the Victorian era of the 1800s was the ability to mass-produce decorative ornaments through the machinery and distribution of the Industrial Revolution. This mass production necessarily resulted in a loss of hand-craftsmanship, however. No longer was the individual artist creating a unique and personalized element. The machine had won the day.
Reacting to this shift in culture, the Arts and Crafts movement formed in England and soon spread to the United States. The Craftsman movement — as it became in the United States — proposed local, natural materials, simplicity of forms, originality and the hand-crafted … (0 comments)
