Now, bar stools line one side of a breakfast bar, which also doubles as a food serving area for parties. “It was an inexpensive way to get that coffered ceiling look,” explained Williams.
But now “everyone with ’70s homes have asked me to get rid of them.” To convert the living room into a formal dining room, Williams tore out the timbers and closed up three archways connecting to the entry.
To represent database-table data in Python objects, Django uses an intuitive system: A model class represents a database table, and an instance of that class represents a particular record in the database table.
Windows and doors, however, can begin to show their age in both wear and design after 10 or 20 years.
Since these are main features of any entryway, replacing them will make a vast difference.
“Most 1970s homes have compartmentalized, closed-off rooms,” said Williams, “not the open floor plan people want today.” For the new kitchen, the Ysbrands chose mocha-stained maple cabinets and Cambria countertops.
They replaced the classic ’70s harvest gold appliances with sleek stainless steel. “Especially the pot filler above the stove.” The original sunken living room had dark, rough-hewn timbers across the ceiling, a popular design element in the ’70s.
“The dark, grainy wood on all the cabinets was awful,” Mike said of the dated kitchen.
“And it was really hard to cook and entertain in there.” When the Ysbrands needed room to seat 12 people for dinner, they swapped furniture, hauling the dining table to the large sunken living room and dragging the living room furniture into the dining area — until one night.
These references can then be used in query filters to compare the values of two different fields on the same model instance.
For example, to find a list of all blog entries that have had more comments than pingbacks, we construct an object with a double underscore will introduce any joins needed to access the related object.
Remodeling the split entry area by moving walls or stairs, pouring new footings, extending the roofline and adding square footage is expensive and time consuming.
