Depending on your requirements and your budget, either choice will be a solid exterior siding decision. Here are some considerations for fiber cement vs. engineered wood.

Fiber cement siding which is created from a wood pulp and Portland cement combination is known for its resistance to rot, pest damage from termites and woodpeckers,and fire plus its longevity.

Responsive Design Mode – Firefox Developer Tools

Chastity Fabry

Responsive design is the practice of designing a website so it looks and works properly on a range of different devices — particularly mobile phones and tablets as well as desktops and laptops.

The most obvious factor here is screen size, but there are other factors as well, including the pixel density of the display and whether it supports touch. Responsive Design Mode gives you a simple way to simulate these factors, to test how your website will look and behave on different devices.

Toggling Responsive Design Mode

There are three ways to toggle Responsive Design Mode:

  • From the Firefox menu: Select “Responsive Design Mode” from the Web Developer submenu in the Firefox Menu (or Tools menu if you display the menu bar or are on macOS).
  • From the Developer Tools toolbox: Press the “Responsive Design Mode” button in the Toolbox’s toolbar:
  • From the keyboard: Press Ctrl + Shift +

Design Inspiration for Autumn

New Kitchen Sink — More Functionality

I’ve finally managed to find my perfect kitchen sink. It took some time as I had to define all the functions I needed to demand from this hugely important work center. Because of the limited space, the sink needed to do everything from washing dishes to washing the dog. I also repot plants and wash hand laundry in the kitchen. I don’t like splashing so it needed to be deep and I needed a pull out faucet to rinse the corgi, who is not a happy camper if I fail in my duty to remove all shampoo residue. I’ll add the before and after pics as soon as the sink is finished. In the meantime I’ve posted pages on

Sorry, Jimmy Kimmel! HGTV Designer Critiques Late-Night Hosts’ Decor

Chastity Fabry

The stay-at-home orders enacted across the U.S. in recent weeks to slow the spread of the coronavirus have taken away Americans’ abilities to do many things. But one new pastime they’ve given us is analyzing the home decor of late-night hosts now broadcasting their shows from their respective houses.

TheWrap had HGTV “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” designer Breegan Jane critique the broadcasted homes of Stephen Colbert, James Corden, Trevor Noah, Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers, Jimmy Kimmel and Conan O’Brien. She was impressed by a few — and not so much by others. Jane preferred the spaces that have clearly been “dressed” for TV.

“It’s OK to set the stage a little bit,” she said. “I like the ‘A’ for effort.”
