Dolwyn & Patagonia

A video about the links between Marc Evans’ beautiful 2010 movie ‘Patagonia’ and The Last Days of Dolwyn (1949, Emlyn Williams)

Both films reference the flooding of Welsh-speaking villages to provide water for English cities. In the case of the ‘Dolwyn’, life imitated art 16 years later when the village of Capel Celyn was drowned to provide water for Liverpool City Council – an event which serves as the backdrop to ‘Patagonia’.

Backyard Chickens – Is it Really Worth it?

In this video I discuss some of the benefits of having backyard chickens. About six months ago we decided that we were ready to buy some chickens and dive into animal husbandry in our backyard. While my wife and I had discussed this idea in the past we had always dismissed it since we live in a small suburban community. Although we are not in a big city and we do have enough room it just didn’t seem like something that would fit with our lifestyle or living environment. After all, what would the neighbors say? Don’t chickens smell? How much time would be invested in cleaning and feeding the chickens? How much does it cost to feed them, heat the coop, and provide overall care? These were many of the questions that my wife and I had that made us reluctant to get into owning chickens.
After having these chickens for about six months now my views and opinions have changed quite a bit. In this video I share some of my opinions about how the chickens have become a perfect fit into our family. If you have been thinking about getting into owning chickens I hope you find this encouraging!

Vacation home on historic farm property north of Chicago – traditional design with a modern twist

The barn-like structure of this family vacation home echoes the design of surrounding farm buildings.

There are two sides to every story – as seen in
this vacation home on an historic farm property.

Trends editorial director Paul Taylor looks at
architect John Vinci’s design of the house.

This substantial home on a historic farm property north of Chicago is full of contradictions and surprises.

Architect John Vinci had already completed several projects on the farm –including a barn, museum and bridge – when the owners asked him to design a vacation home on site too.

This new structure needed to comfortably accommodate all their adult children and their families at any give time.

The site overlooked fields and waterways, which suggested a glass walled building to make the most of the views. But a modernist design would have been at odds with the rustic farm buildings on the other side of the site.

Vinci’s solution was a dual approach to the building.

His steep hip roofs and white stucco siding echo the look of classic farm buildings in the area.

On the facades facing century-old dairy buildings on the property, Vinci retained a conservative look with windows and doors in proportion with those existing barns.

But it’s a different story on the opposite façade. Here Vinci has essentially created a modern glass façade to overlook the rural views. And the pitch of the roof is broken by living spaces extending out.

The four-story observation tower is another structure reminiscent of similar, older versions on two nearby barns. However, the new tower is also given a twist – with the wraparound windows breaking away from the traditional form.

Entry to the house takes you directly into the double-height, central living room. This has a dramatically high ceiling that follows the steep pitch of the roof and is supported by exposed, painted steel beams.

Dormer and clerestory windows flood light into the space, while the steel staircase leads to one of two master suites that also overlook the rural views.
