Nothing would have made me happier than knowing the International Olympic Committee has awarded the 2022 Winter Olympic Games to Beijing at its 128th session in Kuala Lumpur on Friday.

Fourteen years ago Authentic Corey Davis Jersey , I was in Moscow covering the IOC's 112th session where I witnessed Beijing's successful bid for the 2008 Summer Olympic Games. Seven years later, I covered the 2008 Olympic Games as an accredited journalist.

Indeed, Beijing got a facelift, in many aspects Authentic Rashaan Evans Jersey , as the 2008 Games' host. As it becomes the first city ever to host both the Summer and Winter Olympics, I couldn't help wondering what to expect from the Games this time. Here is my wish list:

Permanent blue skies

Efforts to curb pollutions ahead of the 2008 Games dramatically improved the air quality in Beijing, at least for a while. I still remember how clear the sky was during the 2008 Paralympic Games that opened two weeks after the Olympic Games ended. Sadly, pollution continued to haunt Beijing afterwards Authentic Delanie Walker Jersey , to a large extent neutralizing the 2008 efforts.

Once again, expectations are high that staging the Winter Olympic Games will push Beijing to reduce pollution and improve the air quality more effectively.

Such efforts will not only be made in Beijing but in neighboring Hebei province and Tianjin municipality as well, as suggested by a development action plan to integrate the three places. Hopefully, blue skies will become a regular feature even after the Games.

Better transportation

Although Beijing is the host city of the 2022 Winter Games Authentic Marcus Mariota Jersey , Chongli county of Zhangjiakou in Hebei will host some of the snow events. I was there once a couple of years ago for skiing, and I had to spend 10 long hours on a congested winding road in the mountains on my way back because the highway was closed after heavy snow.

The experience stopped me from making another attempt to go skiing in Chongli, which I believe boasted the best facilities for winter sports in North China at that time. It is a pleasure to learn that a high-speed railway linking Beijing and Zhangjiakou is in the works, shortening the travel time from an average 4 hours to 50 minutes.

A boost for winter sports

China has shown its power in the Summer Olympics by topping the gold medal tally in Beijing. It has never dropped out of the top-three list since the Sydney 2000 Games. However Jack Conklin Jersey , its best performance in the Winter Olympics was in the Vancouver 2010 Games where it was placed 7th in the medal standing with five golds.

As the host, China will make an all-out effort to improve its performance in 2022 by securing the best resources, talents and prizes. And it would be interesting to see whether China can break into the top three on the medal tally.

Another spectacular opening ceremony

On Aug, 8 Taywan Taylor Jersey , 2008, film director Zhang Yimou wowed the world with a breathtaking opening ceremony, making it one of the most mesmerizing moments of the 2008 Beijing Games. There is a good reason to expect a similar great show.

If you are a homeowner and you are contemplating a dormer addition or a 1st floor addition or a total home makeover you will definitely need a full set of construction drawing for submittal to your local town building department for approval & a building permit. There are many nuances to developing a set of plans that most homeowners don’t consider but will end up having dramatic consequences going forward through the process. In this post I will highlight some major concerns that could affect overall timing of the process, cost factors and other variables of importance.

The typical path for a homeowner is to have a set of plans developed. The homeowner hires an architect or draftsman and goes back & forth with the architect draftsman to develop a well thought out addition or remodeling plan. This process takes a month or two and all seems right. Once the plans are developed Adoree Jackson Jersey , the homeowner calls up 2-4 contractors to come bid the project. The bids come back and then the fun begins, a lot of the time the project is way over budget and homeowner must make cuts (revisions) to the plans. This is understandable because the architect doesn’t know how to estimate general contracting jobs. The architect diligently redesigns and redraws the plans and then the contractors rebid the job. Of course this takes more time & more cost as the architect doesn’t work for free, right? The plans are rebid by the contractors and the process is now 3-4 months in (or more), the unsuspecting homeowner thinks Harold Landry Jersey , “that was tough but at least we are ready to build”. They select a contractor, the plans are submitted to the building department & the project moves on to the building phase. But what if there is a better, vastly more efficient and less expensive way to get to the building phase?

My experience of nearly 30 years in estimating & pricing plans, like the above mentioned Kevin Byard Jersey , has led to the development of a cost saving, efficient, flexible way for a homeowner to develop a set of plans that they can afford to build. We at True Restorations call this program a “Design Estimate”. In effect, the Design Estimate is a consulting agreement whereas True Restorations is hired to develop a full set of construction drawings simultaneously with an estimate for the same. True Restorations provides intimate construction knowledge Derrick Henry Jersey , real time pricing on construction elements all during the process so that the homeowner can choose items that they can afford to build. For example, maybe the homeowner will substitute a portico above the front door rather than a full front porch in order to keep the budget down to an acceptable level or maybe they will design vaulted ceilings for the master bedroom & bathroom for a 2nd floor addition if they can afford to add that in.
