The architects used white brick for the exterior of the house, as well as elements of the interior, including the fireplace . Natural materials such as cedar timber and hardwood dominate the verandah and extend into the interior. This combination reflects the varied mix of industrial and residential buildings, garages and outbuildings in the neighborhood. Related: Renovated Victorian House in Toronto combines the best of rural and urban living A simple white palette dominates the interior and is set off with elements in grey concrete, colored timber and grey tint mirrors. The front of the house was upgraded, while the rear features a new L-shaped open-plan kitchen, living and dining area with large glass doors that open onto the rear verandah. + ITN Architects Via Archdaily Photos by Patrick Rodriguez

HOW TO: Grow your own mushrooms from recycled cardboard and coffee grounds

Comments Off on HOW TO: Grow your own mushrooms from recycled cardboard and coffee grounds

Book lovers and coffee drinkers no doubt have an excess of cardboard and coffee grounds on their hands. But before you chuck them in the recycling bin, why not consider reusing those materials to grow mushrooms? It may sound strange at first, but nutrient-rich coffee grounds and corrugated cardboard are a match made in mushroom heaven. All you’ll need is a plastic container cleaned with rubbing alcohol and perforated with four to six quarter-inch holes; corrugated cardboard that’s been soaked in water for at least one to two days; quality mushroom spawn that can be found online; and spent coffee grounds, ideally from the day-of. Starting with the cardboard, layer the materials in the container like you would lasagna and cover each sprinkle of spawn with coffee grounds. Then, watch the magic happen! + A Piece of Rainbow The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader. Want to see your story on Inhabitat ? Send us a tip by following this link .

In other words, if we all want to continue drinking water and using it for our everyday needs, it is time to get serious about conserving water!
