Classic chic

Nicola and Nick Pain were not thinking about moving until they first spotted the Victorian manor that would become their home. ‘We weren’t looking for a new house, but as soon as we saw this place, we just had to have it,’ says Nicola.

The property, which is one half of the building, had an outdated kitchen, unsuitable layout and a makeshift lean-to, but Nicola only saw the beautifully proportioned rooms and large sash windows. Fortunately her husband Nick was just as keen and, employed in the building trade, he wasn’t fazed by the work needed to turn the house

Building mindfully

An architect and documentary producer teamed up to create an industrial off-the-grid pad that’s perfectly in tune with its country setting in the eastern Free State.

Wessel van Huyssteen wanted a fuss-free, no maintenance, contemporary, green, low-cost weekend retreat in Rosendal in the eastern Free State, where he could think and create to his heart’s content.

This site has high visibility with no nearby buildings, as it’s situated on the outskirts of the town,’ explains architect Daniel van der Merwe. ‘It’s positioned high up on a hill with sweeping views of the surrounding landscape and dam.’ Daniel was tasked with

Building a car with Your child

Winning a first-place trophy with a car that speeds down the track, leaving other racers in the dust, is the dream of many Pinewood Derby participants. No matter how many modifications you make or speed tips you employ, it’s difficult to know how your car will perform until it makes that first run down the racetrack.

When my son and I made our first car together, we weren’t very confident in our ability to produce a fast car, so we felt the car needed to feature a cool design. Whether or not it was fast, we knew we’d have a

BRUTAL NEW CENTURY

CHAIR OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY SOCIETY

ESTABLISHED TO SAFEGUARD THE HERITAGE OF BRITISH ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN SINCE 1914, ARGUES THA MUCH MODERNIST ARCHITECTURE IN ENGLAND SHOULD BE LISTED, TO PROTECT BOTH THE BUILDINGS’ PRACTICAL AND SYMBOLIC WORTH

It is now 24 years since buildings in England started after 1939 have been eligible for listing. Listing matters because it is both symbolic and practical in its effects — symbolic because official sanction is not given without a struggle and then becomes a catalyst for further engagement, and practical because without listing, most buildings are at risk, if not from demolition then

A Benefit of Building

One of the real advantages of building your own airplane is the opportunity to customize. Amateur builders often have a choice between several engines and propellers, a rainbow of paint schemes, and a variety of options when it comes to avionics. Typically the Glasair Sportsman is a glass-paneled airplane with panels manufactured by Oregon-based Advanced Flight Systems.

The company makes three high-resolution LCD screens ranging from 8.4 inches (diagonally) to 6.5 inches, all of which can be configured to operate as an EFIS or an engine monitor or both at the same time.

Advanced Flight Systems uses an uncertified version
