Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. There’s no doubt that housebuilders such as Taylor Wimpey (LSE: TW) were boosted by December’s election result. Over the last three months, shares in this FTSE 100 firm have risen by about 28%.A profitable year for shareholdersShareholders who’ve held the stock over the last year will have seen a much bigger gain.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Since 21 January 2019, the Taylor Wimpey share price has risen from 156p to a last-seen level of 212p. That gives us a gain of 36%.In addition to this, the company has paid out total dividends of 18.3p per share during the period. That’s equivalent to an 11.8% return on last year’s share price.In total, I estimate that Taylor Wimpey shareholders have enjoyed a total return of almost 48% over the last year. Pretty impressive.Should you keep buying?But I think there are lots of reasons to be cautious about housebuilding stocks at the moment.House prices are high and in many cases are only made affordable by ultra-cheap mortgages and Help to Buy loans. Yet the Help to Buy scheme is due to end — or at least change — over the next few years.And although they pay huge dividends, housebuilding shares are not necessarily that cheap. Taylor Wimpey shares trade currently trade at 2.3 times their book value. That represents the net value of the firm’s land and inventory, less any financial obligations.In my view, that’s a fairly steep valuation. What it tells me is that profit margins on new homes are very high at the moment. If the housing market weakens, then this could change and the shares could fall.But demand is strong!The problem is that demand for new housing still seems to be very strong.I think we can assume that the Conservative government will be supportive of private housebuilders and will not want to crash the housing market.I also think it’s fair to assume that interest rates will remain low for the foreseeable future. I expect mortgages to remain cheap, given the high level of competition for new customers.Taylor Wimpey’s own trading certainly seems strong. The company reported a record order book of £2,176m at the end of 2019. That represents 9,725 homes, or roughly 7.5 months’ sales.The top of the market?So far, there’s no sign that demand for housing is slowing.Despite this, rising costs could put further pressure on profit margins. According to management, Taylor Wimpey’s operating profit margin is expected to have fallen from 21.6% to 19.6% in 2019.Although that’s still very high, it’s a substantial drop in one year. My colleague Graham Chester thinks it could be a sign that we’ve seen the top of the market.It’s also worth noting that City analysts have become more cautious about the outlook over the last 12 months. Their forecasts for 2020 show profits staying flat this year and suggest very little dividend growth.My decisionI’m not buying Taylor Wimpey or any other housebuilder at the moment. I just don’t believe they’re really cheap enough for me to build a long-term holding.However, there’s no doubt that the profits and cash being generated by this firm are impressive. This stock offers a forecast dividend yield of 8.7% for 2020. Right now, I can’t see any reason why this won’t be delivered.I’ve made my choice. But I could be wrong — over to you.

The Norra Tornen project started with two inherited building envelopes, the remains of a cancelled project initiated by the former city architect Aleksander Wolodarski. Each a kind of ‘crescendo’ composition of different heights – neither slab nor tower – prohibit the unfolding of an uncompromised typology. Conversely, the opted program, apartments with an emphasis on large outdoor spaces, prevented too literal a translation of the envelopes into architectural form.

Its initial vertical segmentation was complemented by a second, horizontal segmentation that gives the buildings’ exterior a single, homogeneous treatment: a rough skin, formed through an alternating pattern of withdrawn outdoor spaces and protruding living rooms. The chosen material, ribbed colored concrete brushed with exposed multi-colored aggregate pebbles, echoes brutalist architecture and that is not by chance. According to architecture critic Reyner Banham, the term brutalist architecture was invented by Hans Asplund, the son of Gunnar Asplund, when referring to a design of his studio colleagues in a letter to his British architect friends.Save this picture!© Laurian GhinitoiuSave this picture!Program © OMASave this picture!© Laurian GhinitoiuConcrete at Norra Tornen comes in the form of prefabricated panels – a construction technique that allows work on the building site to continue even below the five-degree Celsius limit which prohibits in situ concrete pouring. Prefabrication also significantly reduced construction costs. This way a design with a wall-to-floor ratio close to 1 – most developers would be discouraged by a 0.5 ratio – was suddenly not an unthinkable proposition. The investment could be channeled in creating apartments with unique layouts, multiple orientations and extra square meters of windows – a precious asset in a country with scarce daylight for half of the year. In a city center with a housing stock largely built before the Second World War, Norra Tornen introduces a new way of living which brings together density with the possibility to enjoy outdoor space (Stockholm ranks fourth among the cities with the highest air quality in the European Union).Save this picture!© Laurian GhinitoiuSave this picture!Apartments Diagrams © OMASave this picture!© Ossip van DuivenbodeSave this picture!Floor Plan © OMASave this picture!© Laurian GhinitoiuThe Innovationen Tower comprises 182 units ranging from 44 sqm one-bedroom apartments to a 271 sqm penthouse on the top floor, with the majority consisting of two- or three-bedroom apartments of 80 to 120 sqm. The residential units are complemented by a cinema room, a dinner room for parties and celebrations, a guest apartment, a gym with a sauna and a relaxation area, and retail space at the ground floor. The Helix Tower includes 138 units, plus amenities.Save this picture!© Laurian GhinitoiuAt a height of 125 meters, and 110 meters, respectively, the two towers are the highest residential buildings in Stockholm’s city center. Located in Hagastaden, a new district in the north of Stockholm developed around the Karolisnka Institute (which awards the Nobel Prize in Medicine), they stand as a gate to the city. However, the manipulation of the initial building envelopes radically transforms their initial implied architecture of monumentality. It gives way to an articulation of domesticity. A once formalist structure comes to house apartments that are surprisingly informal…one could even say humanist.Save this picture!© Ossip van DuivenbodeProject gallerySee allShow lessCall for Entries: Qianhai International Financial Exchange CenterBuilt Projects & MasterplansPhilip Johnson: A Complicated, Reprehensible HistoryArticlesProject locationAddress:Torsplan 8, 113 64 Stockholm, SwedenLocation to be used only as a reference.

Previous articlePrevented free passage of patrol carNext articleLocal Government set to purchase opera site admin Linkedin Print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Email “Huge over-reliance on the frozen food cabinet.”CALLS have been made by the Limerick branch of the St Vincent de Paul Society to put cookery classes back on the menu for schoolchildren.A recent report on food choices and income levels showed that low-income households are resorting to cheap fast food and that 15 per cent of the population is suffering from food poverty.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The Limerick branch of the St Vincent de Paul charity has seen firsthand the link in the city between poverty and dietary deficiency.“There’s a huge over-reliance on the frozen food cabinet,” said Michael Murphy, regional president of the Society.“What the volunteers are hearing from people they visit, is that they are price driven and nutrition is not a consideration. Instant meals are a priority and nutritional value is way down the list of priorities,” he told the Limerick Post.“People are trying to feed a family and they are buying cheap, white sliced bread rather than nutritious wholegrain. Also people are not in a position to take advantage of economies of scale and buy bulk.“Who buys a 10kg bag of spuds anymore? Because the real problem is that while our parents’ generation had the skills to turn cheap ingredients into nourishing meals, people just don’t have those basic cooking skills anymore”.Mr Murphy is calling on the Department of Education to ensure that all schools offer basic home economics classes.Schools can choose which subjects they want to offer and many do not offer home economics. It’s also feared that with the reform of the Junior Cert announced last week and students being limited to eight subjects, cooking may fall to more academic subjects.“Home economics is not taught in all schools any more. It needs to be taught to boys and girls if there is to be a change and we are to get people, particularly people on a limited income, away from fast food and back to cooking,” he said.The North/South body Safefood found that people living on or below the poverty line are not sufficiently engaged by the current general focus on healthy eating to move to better food habits.“For the most, the priority was to put food on the table and the nutritional content of the food did not come into question,” the report states.
