Builder Confidence Index Static in September

The NAHB index measuring homebuilder confidence in the single-family housing market remained at 58 in September following a one-point downward revision in August.

Nature's Playground: Chimney Rock's Woodland Adventure

In 2003, North Carolina's Chimney Rock State Park commissioned the design and construction of a new educational trail, providing families and student groups with a place to walk and play in the midst of nature while learning about the environment around them.

Building Materials Costs Tick Upward in August

The Producer Price Index for construction materials increased 0.3 percent in August but rose just 1.4 percent year-over-year, remaining relatively stable despite recent dips in some construction segments and growing uncertainty in the larger economy. A 2.7 percent monthly decline in crude energy prices offset increases in softwood lumber and concrete products, and many other categories fluctuated by less than one percent.

Philly's Bus Shelter Green Roof Project

The bus shelter's green roof vegetation of sedums and perennials were pre-grown in lightweight soil. An engineered fabric holds and distributes water; a root barrier protects the roofing from roots. The roof is water-resistant corrugated steel with a rigid mat atop it to help support the rest of the green roof layers. A plastic sheet above the rigid mat holds the majority of rainwater in the soil.
