George Washington University Thurston Hall Renovation

Posted on

As the largest first-year residence hall at The George Washington University, Thurston Hall is the first impression that many students receive at GW. Its role in providing a high quality living-learning experience is critical to creating a sense of identity and community for GW’s Foggy Bottom campus.

In spring 2019, VMDO’s concept for Thurston Hall’s renovation was selected as the winning design as part of an invited competition. The design carves out a central courtyard that brings the rhythms of the District into the heart of the building. With the intent to draw students out of their rooms and into opportunities to live, learn, and develop as an inclusive community, the building’s design integrates academic and social experiences around a lively central spine with views, clear orientation, and destinations for collaboration.

Interlaced with this sense of community is a connection to the Foggy Bottom campus and DC’s urban context.

Cost to Build a House in the State of Washington with Finished Basement

Posted on

Summary: How much does it cost to build a house in Washington State with a finished basement. The cost per square foot is much less when you include a finished basement.

Note: In order for a basement to be considered habitable space, it must have two (2) means of ingress & egress. This can be accomplished with doors, as in an walkout basement, which requires a sloping lot, or with large windows, or with an emergency basement door.

Rustic meets modern in the Adkins:

The covered porch and shutters give the compact Adkins the look of a traditional farm-style home, but the interior is entirely up to date. Kitchen, dining room and living room flow together, creating a feeling of openness, with nine-foot ceilings adding to the sense of volume.

Washington House / Charleston Studios

Update, 17 April 2018

Currently (at 17 April 2018) the whole block, including the old Scott’s / DJs building and carpark are being turned into apartments, with apparently some shops on the ground floor. Last weekend (14-15 April 2018) someone on the Facebook Lost Newcastle page mentioned that there were some ghost signs on the front of the building, close to Wolfe St. They also added some photos, including an interesting blue one for KODAK. Yesterday (16 April 2018) I went down there and took some photos as well. There are 3 ghost signs — running from east to west — 2 (“LOWE’S”, “SELL IT FOR LESS.”) from the clothes store LOWE’S, and the 3rd (“KODAK SUPPLIES”) from the WASHINGTON SOUL chemist shop. (“Sell It For Less” was Lowe’s slogan.)

21 Top Book Publishing Companies in Washington

book publishing companies in washington

Being a writer is a creative yet exhausting profession.

You have to constantly find new perspectives, fresh ideas and different ways of saying something that in all probability has been said before.

And once you have managed to write something, you need to be prepared to let the world see and criticize it.

Before you send your dream novel, short story or poem out in the universe, you need to find a publisher who can stand with you through this journey of discovering your voice.

The right publisher will shape your book in the correct way so that it manages to reach the audience it is intended to. They will also fight for your book, fight with you if need be and give it a makeover if that’s required.

For writers in Washington State, there are multiple options when it comes to publishers. Small, big, traditional, modern and self are
