That’s 2 cents less than a week ago and 4 cents less than the highest price so far this year.“Unless pump prices suddenly rise this week, holiday travelers will find gas prices that are slightly below what they paid on Memorial Day 2018,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “While expectations of strong holiday fuel demand can carry the potential for causing higher pump prices, wholesale gasoline prices dropped 5 cents last week. That means gas prices could drift lower as the weekend approaches, but things can change quickly in the fuel market.” National$3.039$3.040$3.044$2.887$1.953$4.11   (7/17/2008) 2.760Wawa1609 S Orange Blossom TrApopka Gas Price Survey MethodologyAAA updates fuel price averages daily at www.GasPrices.AAA.com.

Linear House / Patkau Architects

first_imgLinear House / Patkau ArchitectsSave this projectSaveLinear House / Patkau Architects “COPY” Photographs 2009 Photographs:  James DowText description provided by the architects. Linear House is located on a sixteen acre farm on Salt Spring Island, an island in the Strait of Georgia between Vancouver Island and the mainland of British Columbia, Canada. The property is bisected from east to west by a long row of mature Douglas fir trees. There is a gentle slope falling across the site from south to north. The south half of the site contains an orchard; the north half a hay field. There was an existing cottage on the property which has been sold and relocated to a neighbouring property. The existing barn, garage and studio buildings remain.Save this picture!© James DowRecommended ProductsWindowsFAKRORoof Windows – FPP-V preSelect MAXWindowsLibartVertical Retracting Doors & WindowsWindowspanoramah!®ah!38 – FlexibilityWindowsJansenWindows – Janisol PrimoThe row of Douglas fir trees is unusually situated, bisecting the farm. The trees themselves are textural, old, torn and windswept. They hold your attention and make you realize duration, existence over many years. They have a kind of old heart. The impulse to site the new house along and next to this venerable presence was both intuitive and immediate. Save this picture!© James DowThe new house slips into the narrow space between the line of fir trees to the north and orchard to the south. It extends 276 feet in a straight line along the south side of the fir trees. One side of the house faces the line of fir trees and water view beyond, on the opposite side a continuous covered walkway edges the adjacent fruit orchard. The orchard has been made more regular with additional fruit trees so that the clarity of the juxtaposition between the cultural landscape of fruit trees to the south, and the line of native fir trees to the north of the new house, is reinforced. The full extent of the house is never directly experienced from the exterior. That experience is of a dark stealth-like figure sliding in and out behind the screens of trees on either side. At a parting of the trees on either side the length of the house is subdivided into a principal dwelling and guest quarters by a breezeway. Save this picture!© James DowThe exterior rain screen of the house (walls, soffits, parapets, and ‘fins’) is clad in charcoal-coloured fibre-cement panels which render the house almost invisible when seen against the dark green foliage of the firs. Interiors are described by a luminous inner lining made of translucent acrylic panels. In order to minimize cut panels, these translucent sheets establish the dimensional module for the project. Over forty fixed and operable acrylic skylights bring sunlight into the roof and wall assemblies during the day causing the interior liner to glow softly and irregularly. At night, fluorescent lights mounted within the skylight openings turn the entire interior into a luminous field. Areas within this overall luminous surround are subdivided and defined by the insertion of reinforced concrete fireplace masses and wood cabinet-like service spaces. Large glazed openings extending up to 78 feet and 28 foot cantilevered roof canopies at either end of the house are supported by a pair of 6 foot deep composite wood beams on each long building face. The numerous top hung sliding aluminum glazed door panels are suspended from these beams. Panels are fully retractable so that during the prolonged fair weather of Salt Spring Island the house can be transformed into an open-air pavilion, more shelter than ‘proper’ house.Save this picture!© James DowProject gallerySee allShow lessSANAA Announces Plans for Paris’ La Samaritaine RestorationArticlesEDP Cultural Centre / Amanda Levete ArchitectsArticles Share CopyHouses•Salt Spring Island, Canada Linear House / Patkau Architects Houses Year:  Canadacenter_img Projects Save this picture!© James Dow+ 17 Share ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/140470/linear-house-patkau-architects Clipboard Architects: Patkau Architects Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/140470/linear-house-patkau-architects Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officePatkau ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesSalt Spring IslandCanadaPublished on June 07, 2011Cite: “Linear House / Patkau Architects” 07 Jun 2011.

Zillow profits hit record $52M in Q1

first_img Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Message* Full Name* Housing MarketRich Bartonzillow Email Address* Share via Shortlink Zillow CEO Rich Barton (Getty)High demand for housing and low supply delivered another quarter of record profits for Zillow.The Seattle-based real estate giant notched $52 million in net income during the first quarter, bolstered by a booming U.S. housing market. That compares to a $163.3 million loss during last year’s first quarter, as Zillow invested heavily in its nascent home-buying program, Zillow Offers.During the quarter Zillow generated $1.2 billion in revenue, up 8 percent year-over-year.By and large, the gains were driven by agent advertising. Premier Agent revenue rose 38 percent year-over-year to $334.3 million. Zillow’s internet, media, and technology segment — which includes Premier Agent — generated $144 million in profits during the quarter.ADVERTISEMENTRead moreRich man, poor man: Profile of Rich Barton Zillow buys Showing Time for $500M Zillow’s profits soar Tags During an earnings call Tuesday, CEO Rich Barton said home-price appreciation over the last six months hit “unprecedented” levels not seen in 35 years.“Volumes are up. Home price appreciation is up. Homes are just moving really, really fast,” he said. “All of that put winds in the sails of our Premier Agent business and business overall.”The housing market rebound coincides with the re-acceleration of Zillow Offers.Along with other iBuyers, Zillow suspended iBuying when the pandemic struck. During the quarter, Zillow purchased 1,856 homes and sold 1,965 homes during the quarter. “The Q1 resale velocity, in which 128 percent of beginning inventory was sold during the quarter, was ahead of plan,” Barton wrote in a letter to shareholders.Zillow Offers generated $700.9 million in revenue during the first quarter, down 9 percent. (During the first quarter, the company said it would start making offers based on its Zestimate.) Overall, Zillow’s Homes segment, which also includes title and closing services, lost $58 million.Zillow’s web and mobile traffic hit 221 million average monthly users during the three-month period, up 15 percent. It notched 2.5 billion visits, up 19 percent from a year ago.Although Zillow has the lion’s share of consumer eyeballs in the market, the real estate giant has been recasting itself over the past two years into a one-stop-shop for real estate transactions.It now offers mortgage and title services, in addition to instant homebuying. In February, it paid $500 million to acquire Showing Time, a popular tour scheduling software.Zillow’s mortgage business was another bright spot during the quarter. Mortgage revenue rose 169 percent to $67.9 million.
