MODERN MINIMALISM

IN WEST UNIVERSITY

It’s rare to find a standout in a luxury neighborhood. This minimalist, contemporary home built to custom-level specifications is just that. From the flawless lines of the stucco, glass and cumaru wood on the exterior to the carefully crafted details of the lighting, cabinetry, and tile work inside, this home will impress the most discerning eye. Even the home site is a special lot positioned at the end of the curving street and framed by timeless live oak trees and astonishing exterior doors that we got from https://www.bordnerinstall.com/kansas-city/exterior-doors/. Walk up to the house on asymmetrically poured concrete steps highlighted with inset LEDs. Enter through an over-sized glass pivot door and walk into the entryway where cumaru extends all the way from the opposite side of the home. A wall of sliding glass doors invites your eyes to the backyard only if they can leave the walnut-wrapped drop-ceiling. The entire first floor is poured saw-cut concrete. This all before you see the custom teak wood shower pan and built-ins upstairs.

WHY DO WE OBSERVE DAYLIGHT SAVING?

Daylight Saving Time was first established in the US in 1918 to conserve energy and extend the workday during World War I. This was only supposed to be temporary but the change has lasted over 100 years.Despite the common spelling of DLS having an ‘s’ at the end, the event is correctly spelled Daylight Saving. Although we might think of changing our clocks as a county wide event, not all states observe daylight saving. Hawaii, most of Arizona, and a handful of U.S. territories have chosen to forgo Daylight Saving and their clocks remain the same year-round. We were also not the first country to adopt the practice. Germany began Daylight Saving two whole years before the US. This year we will move our clocks forward on March 10th and move them back on November 3rd.
