Home safety can, by force of home designing, be integral to home building.
All of the entries hereunder are collected from home safety references here and there throughout this website.
These home safety guidelines are Before The Architect's daily bread of opinion in good home designing well done. It's up to you to discern and decide which of them shall apply to your own work.
Home Design Safety - Air Exhaust. Breathing is essential. Breathing well is a worthy goal.
Home Design Safety - Appliances. Stuff you should know already and about which betcha that nobody reminds you of except this custom home designer.
Home Design Safety - Deck. Seems superficially like such a simple matter, a deck. It's not.
Home Design Safety - Fastening. Selected highpoints.
Home Design Safety - Home Building. In this home designer's opinion, it may be that the only thing worse than a lousy home design is a lousy home building experience. The litany to follow is intended to avoid a lousy home building experience.
Home Design Safety - Home Fire. Life's not about things, it's about people.
Home Design Safety - Home Light. Home light design is integral to home design safety. Herewith, you'll find a detailed cross-reference to home light design to see for yourself its safety implications as you'll read by no others, including several matters individually highlighted.
Home Design Safety - Home Passages. Home passages - really, wall amendments - can make or break home design safety for effects on travel patterns and lines of sight.
Home Design Safety - Home Plumbing. In home design, plumbing can be the last in attendance and the first in annoyance.
Home Design Safety - Home Stairs. Home stairs safety involves, in this custom home designer's opinion, home building and home light.
Home Design Safety - Home Electrical Wiring. Q: What if I don't know furshur whassup with this particular electrical wiring situation? A: Find some who is furshur, furshur.
Home Design Safety - Kitchen Safety. Design mistakes in this space frequently mean compromised safety.
Home Design Safety - Home Sleeping Area. Poorly defined, poorly expressed - brings new meaning to minimum standards - building codes do when it comes to sleeping area design for safety.
Home Fire Safety - Stairs and Home Fire Safety - Elevator. An elevator shaft or hoistway could make a swell chimney and double the peril by bearing what could be the most vulnerable folks in the home. Much codified ado is made of fire-blocking wall and floor structure (and stairway structure to an extent), but not the eminently more airflow-permissive elevator shaft or for that matter the stairwell itself.
