Welcome to our new Blog. VBNF Blog is built to bring you the latest information from VBNF as soon as it happens. We decide to do this so you do not need to wait for the issuance of our newsletters.
At the same time, I will talk about different topics that can affect you or your family. We will use the Blog to send you informal information like talking to you in person. This way, we do not have to be bounded by the format we used for the official newsletters.
Of course, we would also welcome your comments and suggestions. We received lots of encouragement from the audience from Facebook, Linked In, Plaxo, Twitter and YouTube when we introduced our new VBNFVideo and VBNFPhoto Sites.
Sometimes we may use articles or videos or photos that may have been published. As such, we like to thank the people who put them up in the public domain so we can use them to share with everyone we know. I believe there are many things going on that not everyone would know so by highlighting some of the stuff we know, we hope that would bring some value to you to enhance your life. After all, we do know much about what is going on in China and other places that may affect our business.
I would like to bring your attention to:
Low Cost Modular Home/building for the future
Modular is a way to build a system. By doing it modularly, we can specialize in the module and do a good job in a smaller scale. This way of work has been used in Building systems including software and hardware. Software means the programming or computer processing for a particular application. Hardware can be anything from housing, buildings, cars, packaging, logistic, transportation, airplanes, ships, machines, etc.
But modular building only just started to get popular. You can see that if you can build all the piece parts in a control environment, you should be able to do things faster with more accuracy. So the waste of material should be minimized especially when you are talking to build houses in the open that is affected by the weather.
Depending on the technology you are using, the material cost may be same but the labour cost should be lesser. If you do use the Murchtech product, then you can save the material cost for a more solid building than from using wood panels.
If we build houses like building cars, you can imagine that how quick you can build the house with standard design in a couple days. Of course, you need to do a good job on the engineering and the design. So the construction guys can just assemble each house in short time.
China just built a 15 storey building in 90 hours. See the video for yourself. It is the same idea with Murchtech.
Ark Hotel in China Construction time lapse building 15 storeys in 6 days
How the Arabs building a modular home in a few days:
While it seems to be quick to build something very fast that meets all safety standards, let’s not forget that this can only be done with precise engineering and craft work at the control environment of the in house factory that is not affected by weather conditions. Precision installation and building methodology are the keys to a successful construction. Of course, there are many ways to build a construction. However, this sets the standard for fast construction and we can build our future homes like assembling furniture we buy from Ikea®.
Mark my word, the world of construction is going to shock the world.

Canadian, Economy, Real Estate
Concern over rising consumer debt levels is prompting Ottawa to make three new changes to Canada’s mortgage rules.
Maximum Mortgage amortization periods have been reduced to 30 years from 35 years.
The maximum amount Canadians can borrow to refinance their mortgages will be lowered to 85 per cent from the current 90 per cent.
The government will withdraw its insurance backing on lines of credit secured on homes, such as home equity lines of credit. These changes are going to mainly affect first time home buyers in the large urban centers like Vancouver, Toronto and Calgary. More….
