To quiet footsteps from the floor above, consider adding fiberglass batts to the joist spaces. You can add a 3-1/2-in. layer, or better yet, fill the joist spaces with fiberglass. For even more noise reduction, isolate the ceiling drywall from the joists with resilient channels. Screw the channels to the joists, spacing them 12 or 16 in. apart (ask your building inspector what's required). Then screw the drywall to the channels, being careful not to drive screws into the joists. This creates…

Researchers break efficiency record for consumer-friendly solar panels Turning sunlight into power is a surprisingly tricky thing. Experiments in academia have created solar arrays that can capture up to 40-percent of the suns energy and convert it to electricity but consumer cells are notably less efficient. At best silicon-based technology has a theoretical 29-percent efficiency ceiling  meaning any consumer panel in the low 20s is doing pretty well. Still were inching ever closer to the…

Cutting corners — in a good way Disappearing walls are among the special features commonly included in custom homes built by CHPT Construction of San Diego, co-owner Cecilia Zavalla says. This Mediterranean-style house has a family room that connects to the patio via a 15-foot opening that wraps around the corner. The cantilevered ceiling means there's no center post to spoil the view.
