Earth Day Libation

From Sandy McKellar's excellent Tree Frog News:

PWB has real 'green' beer Prince George Free Press - March 18, 2010Pacific Western Brewing put a new spin on ‘green’ beer on St. Patrick’s Day. Last year the company announced it would plant a tree for every case of its new beer, Cariboo Genuine Draft. On Wednesday, PWB announced that it will plant 50,000 trees in the Cariboo region later this spring as part of the B.C. Forests for Tomorrow initiative. “Those 50,000 trees will cover 40 hectares,” company produce development manager Paul Mulgrew said. “Those trees will consume 6,080 tonnes of carbon (dioxide) this year. That’s the equivalent of taking 1,500 cars off the road.”

Lynden Door in Heart of Doha

Lynden Door has been specified for two large LEED projects in Qatar, through the Qatar Foundation. The first is the Heart of Doha project in Doha where 35 hectares are being targeted for reconstruction. The project comprises 300+ buildings, many seeking LEED certification. This is a 5.5 billion USD$ undertaking.

The second is the Male & Female Student Housing project in Education City, aiming for LEED Platinum (eight buildings).

In both cases, Lynden Door's proprietary GreenDor products are specified for interior wood doors.

We are also currently working on a small project in Doha for Georgetown University and have bid on projects such as the Salalah and Muscat airports in Oman.

Which Craftsman Are YOU?

So you are buying Crossmore doors (from Lynden Door, see below) for your new Craftsman home and you are excited about finding a door that is such an authentic addition to your decor. But, as much as you are confident that your interior doors will be within the aesthetic, you aren't exactly sure which category of Craftsman or Arts & Craft architecture and design your home falls into.

Arts & Crafts and the Revival magazine has a terrific resource for this. See their online article at: This excellent piece has descriptions and photos that will help you nail down your precise architectural heritage.


Then you can decide what color to finish your Crossmore doors or perhaps opt to go with a rift sliced white oak flush veneer door instead, with a dark wipe-coat stain and a matte gloss finish for that patinaed look.

These doors and many other appropriate styles and finishes are available through your Lynden Door representative.
