How to Home by Aaron Massey - 6d ago

This week Aaron and Tracy chat with Patrick Cain of Patrick Cain Designs about his interesting path to becoming a furniture designer, and the business side of being a maker.

 

LET’S CHAT!

You can always call and leave your questions and comments on our voicemail!

978-709-1040

 

NOTABLE MOMENTS :

  • Patrick attributes his success to having a curiosity and learning.
  • He started mid-century modern and moved into minimalist design.
  • He’s currently working on a brutalist vibe with a little touch of Memphis. 
  • Patrick’s company employs people from every continent. 
  • The shop’s process is super collaborative. Patrick has everyone in the shop give input. 
  • In addition to his main site, Patrick sells his second hand concrete pieces on Etsy, and also at the Rose Bowl Flea Market. 
  • “Do what you like, save what you love as a hobby”. 
  • Patrick looks at selling at the flea market as free A/B testing. He can tell if he’s doing the right thing by who approaches him to hear more.
  • “I believe in open cabinetry because you can’t hide things!”
  • The dogs in Patrick’s photos are from Angel City Pitbulls.
  • If you’re thinking of starting a business, focus on a product that’s safe and then expand.

 

THINGS TO LOOK FOR WHEN BUYING FURNITURE:

  • If it’s MDF or particle board it’s not going to hold up.
  • The heavier the better.
  • Look for furniture that is environmentally friendly. Things that are made from new materials are better if they’re going to last 10 years.

 

ENVIRONMENTAL FOCUS:

  • Patrick uses recycled styrofoam in his concrete pieces.
  • Their team looks for fallen trees and materials that can be reclaimed. 

 

SOME CHALLENGES OF RUNNING A BUSINESS/MOST REWARDING:

  • One of the biggest challenges is, Los Angeles doesn’t make it easy to run a business.
  • Being able to pay yourself is tough- it goes to employees and getting reinvested.
  • Having steady work.
  • Finding employees! Finding reliable people is so difficult.
  • Having a happy customer is really rewarding.

How to Home by Aaron Massey - 1w ago

This week Aaron and Tracy chat with Philip Shen about tips for creating a great sleep environment in your home.

 

LET’S CHAT!

You can always call and leave your questions and comments on our voicemail!

978-709-1040

 

WHY SLEEP IS IMPORTANT:

  • We spend ⅓ of our lives sleeping, so it’s critical for health.
  • The body restores and repairs itself during sleep.
  • Good sleep also supports your memory.

 

HOW TO CREATE A BETTER ENVIRONMENT:

  • Make sure your room is cool and quiet.
  • Get the proper mattress for your alignment.
  • Block out noise and light.
  • No tv or electronics in the bedroom.
  • The bedroom should be for sleep.
  • Comfortable and soothing colors.
  • Hot showers, massage and warm beverages/hot water (non-caffeinated) are great before bed.
  • Tracy suggested blue light cancelling glasses. 

 

WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A MATTRESS/PILLOW:

  • For youngsters, the mattress requirements aren’t as important- but it’s important they’re cool.
  • Philip recommends mattress protectors for health.
  • 80 percent of the sleeping population are side sleepers, and side sleeping creates the most pressure points. It’s important for side sleepers to get the correct firmness.
  • Philip recommends mattresses with zoning technology.
  • Mattresses should last 8 years.
  • If you have broad shoulders you need a bigger pillow.
  • Body pillows are great for support. 
  • Philip likes the Snuz mattress, specifically the hybrid bed.

 

SOCIAL QUESTIONS:

Q: If you have a cooling mattress and put a mattress protector over it, are you negating the benefits?

 

A: Yes, but they make cooling mattress protectors as well. Also, with the zipper top mattress protector that’s available, you can actually unzip and clean without buying a mattress protector.

This week Aaron and Tracy chat with artist Peter Staley about blending creativity and construction.

 

LET’S CHAT!

You can always call and leave your questions and comments on our voicemail!

978-709-1040

 

QUICK FACTS ABOUT PETER’S WORK:

- Peter refers to his structures as shrines to nature.

- His first woodworking was building stretchers for paintings and then he moved on to set design.

- Once he built his own store (his wife’s kids shop), a lot of people had him start building their stores. He likes to bring nature inside.

- Recently he’s been building a lot of cabins, which was a natural progression after building a work cabin for his wife’s second store. His latest cabin is a liveable space, 200 sq ft with a sleeping loft and outdoor shower.

- His nature inspiration stems from his time in the Adirondacks as a child. https://visitadirondacks.com

- Peter can look at a space and visualize what he wants to do with it.

- Peter sees his builds as art and it’s a very spiritual process.

- His favorite materials are: cedar and shou sugi ban.

- He loves buying from Angel City Lumber- https://www.angelcitylumber.com

- Peter feels this medium is the one that connects with people the most, whereas his art doesn’t necessarily connect with everyone.

- Peter’s tip for creating a more functional small space is: laying stuff out with blue tape and seeing how it would feel to move around in the space.

- “I would like someone to enter a space I made and have a spiritual experience.”

- Peter’s suggestion for the beginner: “Get some tools and start playing around. Make a box!”

- Peter believes everything needs to go as green as possible. He’d like to see a return to natural and comfortable materials.

 

SOCIAL QUESTIONS:

Q: Do you feel you have a signature style?

A: Not on purpose, but yes. Peter doesn’t try to make things in his style, it’s just his natural progression.

 

Q:  How long is the planning process?

A: A couple of weeks.

 

Q: Where does your inspiration come from with your art?

A: It just comes to Peter and he needs to get it out.

 

Q: Is it hard to see a structure decorated in a way that doesn’t fit your intention for the space?

A: At first it is, but then you get used to it.

This week Aaron and Tracy chat with Kumiko Love about tips for jump starting your family budget and how to stick with it.

 

LET’S CHAT!

You can always call and leave your questions and comments on our voicemail!

978-709-1040

 

KUMIKO’S METHOD:

- Kumiko does the budget by paycheck method, and also implements a calendar.

- She doesn’t use a predetermined dollar amount or percentage.

 

JUMP START YOUR BUDGET:

- Learn the emotions and triggers behind your spending.

- When you’re a freelancer, knowing everything about your past spending is important.

- Meal plan! Food is a budget killer.

- Track your spending and figure out where your money is being sucked.

- Call the companies behind your monthly bills and see if you can get your costs down.

- Create an allowance for spontaneous purchases.

- Homeowners should have an emergency fund and a maintenance fund.

- Find a financial adviser you can trust, if you don’t feel comfortable making the decisions on your own.

- Kumiko thinks you’re more motivated to save if you have savings accounts labeled as your specific goal.

- “If I spend the money right now, what am I giving up in the future?”

- For student loans- sit down and figure out exactly what you have.

- There are financial counselors out there for free! Check out non-profit organizations and banks.

 

TOP 5 TIPS:

- Discover your why. Why do you want to start budgeting?

- Track your spending. It’s the number one action step.

- Look at your recurring bills and try to get them down.

- Sit down and look at your debt. Write it all out.

- Figure out what kind of learner you are? That’s how you have to organize your finances to stay motivated.

 

COMMON PITFALLS:

- They can’t change their mindset surrounding what they have/need.

- They feel stuck.

- Food! They need to meal plan.

- Not knowing where to start with debt.

How to Home by Aaron Massey - 1M ago

This week Aaron and Tracy chat with Neat Method, Santa Barbara owner, Kat Petty about sustainable solutions and hacks for creating an organized home.

 

LET’S CHAT!

You can always call and leave your questions and comments on our voicemail!

978-709-1040

 

KAT’S TIPS:

- Take everything out of your space, categorize it and then find homes for it.

- There are great containers at every price point.

- Group things in like categories. Have some very specific categories, but also some more broad ones.

- When things are labeled people are more inclined to put things where they belong.

- People often pre-shop for product, but Kat recommends taking everything out first and grabbing what you need next.

- Have donate bins in your home that you take out regularly.

- If you haven’t worn something in a year (and it’s not for a special occasion) let it go!

- Keep like seasonal items together in grabbable bins.

- Go room by room (no more than 3 spaces at a time).

- Clear drawer organizers are great for the bathroom.

- Get rid of old makeup and products you no longer use.

- To make a deep shelf efficient try not to stack things behind others. Use containers that serve as drawers. Kat recommends the deep Linus bin. Linked below.

 

TIPS FOR KIDS TOYS:

- Kat loves the shoebox bins because they’re clear and kids can see what’s in them. They’re also stackable.

- Label everything, but not crazy specific. (For example: “Friends” could be stuffed animals and figurines.)

- Have extra labels on hand.

- Small pieces and art supplies can be maintained in clear plastic bins as well.

- File folders/holder for coloring books (genius!!!).

 

TIPS FOR THE CAR:

- Keep a basket or tote with handles in the car, fill it up and then bring it in every day/set it back by the door.

- Have a bin that’s only car toys.

 

TIPS FOR THE CAR:

- Clear everything out, let go of things, map out the system and put everything back in.

- Get things off the ground. You can hang everything: strollers, bikes etc.

KAT MENTIONED:

 

 

SOCIAL QUESTIONS:

Q: Any tips on space saving organization for communal living?

A: A furniture piece that has little cubbies/bins. Kat likes this one- https://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/S29278262/

 

Q: How do I avoid my kitchen table becoming my family command center?

A: Have a drop zone close to the front door. Mail system that says: To Do, File & Outgoing will help. Create homes for everything to go to.

 

Q: What can I do TODAY to start?

A: Put a date on your calendar. Start with the purging process. Look for expired stuff in pantry.
