building it to last

This is an article about designing a kitchen, but the reason I'm blogging it is because of this paragraph: "Durable materials for the long haul -- Some building materials die ugly deaths. Plastic-laminate counters and vinyl floors, for example, don't look better with age. But some materials do, taking on a patina of use that charts the passage of time". This isn't something I'd thought of but of course it is a fundamental principle of what we want for Amherst
