I had another chat with Ian and Steve at the Home Discovery Show . I followed their chat with Melissa of The Thirties Grind, who coincidentally had a post last week about laneway homes that I left a comment on. The circle of life.
Ian and I talked about the garden plans for the laneway, what the City of Vancouver expects of us, and about the living roof we plan to install.
We are very lucky, when we told our builder, Novell, that we wanted to put in a living roof, they assured us that they are qualified installers of LiveRoof — complete system of plants plus growing medium to give you the roof you want.
It’s truly a garden on your roof, and it’s installed in such a way that it protects your roof from the very harmful rays of the sun, which eventually break down the membrane on regular roofs.
Ian was also kind enough to mention my Celt in a Twist podcast, and the fact that we’ve been nominated for an award on About.com.
Just a friendly reminder that you can vote here for the show every day until March 19 in the About.com Readers’ Choice Awards. And maybe for St. Patrick’s Day, you’ll want to hear the show itself. You can find out more about it at Calcopyrite.com.
