The alignment of corners when renovating a room is of great importance. Curved joints will not allow you to evenly glue the wallpaper, lay tiles, put furniture, and they just spoil the overall appearance of the room. One of the common ways to solve this problem is to plaster the corners.
Before plastering the corners of the walls, the masters recommend that beginners in this business carefully study all the features of the process. Violation of the work technology will lead to cracks in the inner corners and chips and shedding of material on the outer ones.
Plastering is a rather laborious process and is only suitable for substrates with minor defects. However, this type of work will allow you to save the useful area of the apartment and not very expensive in terms of materials. To eliminate differences up to 5 cm, you can use a plaster putty. It is durable, dries quickly, and is easy to use.
Pay attention! Plastering with plaster is suitable for corners on brick, concrete, plaster surfaces. The mortar will not adhere well to wooden joints.
Adjacent sides must be prepared before plastering uneven corners:
Before leveling the corner of the wall with plaster, it is recommended to pick up working tools and building materials. Different alignment methods may require:
There is an opinion that theatrical life is in full swing only in the largest cities of Russia: in Moscow and St. Petersburg. Of course, the traditions of classical ballet are primarily preserved on the two main stages of the country; it is in these cities that outstanding choreographers of all times have worked and are still working. But this impression instantly dissipates when you find yourself within the walls of the Yekaterinburg Opera and Ballet Theater, which is now called simply: Ural Opera Ballet. The cultural life there is very active, it is enough to recall the bright premieres of the ballets Paquita and The King's Order, first presented in February by Naples and The Vision of the Rose, and right now work is in full swing on the new play The Little Humpbacked Horse. whose fate is in the hands of the audience.
The ballet troupe has been headed by Vyacheslav Samodurov since 2011, and, as you can see, the choreographer has breathed new life into the repertoire with innovative ideas. The theater was founded in 1912, great choreographers came here to work, but did not stay for long. But the constant presence of the artistic director and full involvement in the life of the troupe are extremely important, this is the secret of development. Today it is about finding a compromise between preserving tradition and innovation, which is what the artistic director and artists are doing now.
How does the dialogue with the modern public begin? From new faces and names, and first of all from the "name" of the theater, which was changed not so long ago. Today, in the media space, the Yekaterinburg Theater is called briefly - Ural Opera Ballet. Thus, the location of the theater and academicism were immediately identified, which, perhaps, left the name, but did not leave the stage. Classical productions still live on the stage of the theater, but at the same time, there is an ongoing work on new ballets that help establish a dialogue with the 21st century audience through formats. Which ones?
Now the theater is working on a new ballet "The Little Humpbacked Horse" based on the fairy tale of the same name by Pyotr Ershov. The outstanding choreographers of our time Vyacheslav Samodurov and Anton Pimonov are working on the choreography for the new ballet. The premiere was supposed to take place at the end of last season, but due to the pandemic, the work on the play stopped, and is now slowly resuming. This will not be an ordinary production, as rappers Naum Blik and Alexander T-Bass from the EK-Playaz group will take part in it. Such a combination has never been seen on the ballet stage, and it should show the viewer that the theater can not only preserve traditions, but also discover new facets of art. The restored classical choreography from the old version of the ballet will alternate with the modern one, and this will be a conversation in a language understandable to today's audience.
-The idea of the performance was born a long time ago - in 2018, when we were preparing the ballet "The King's Order". This was the first big project in which we did everything from scratch: we ordered the music to Anatoly Aleksandrovich Korolev, came up with a script after reading many other old scripts, and the result was a modern fantasy production. The repertoire is always planned two or three seasons ahead, and we thought about the next big ballet we can include in the repertoire. If there are two premieres planned, we have to think about keeping the whole troupe busy, so that it is attractive to the audience, but not too hackneyed. We needed exclusive products, where classical dance would be combined with new design, with new music. And The Little Humpbacked Horse was a happy decision in this sense.
- We began to think about the name: it is traditional, the old ballet with this name is almost 160 years old. There is a famous score by Rodion Shchedrin, but a ballet has already been staged to this music in Ufa, at the Mariinsky Theater. We immediately realized that we wanted to do something unique. There was a lot of work with the archives, we studied the old script of the "Humpbacked Horse", which had been modified over the course of a century, and everything was very curious, why we took it as a basis.
Based on the old script, in which there were different dances, including the Ural people, we decided that we would do a play about the Ural people - about all of us, because a variety of peoples live on this territory, who once came from all over the country to build this city. Having preserved the outline of the pre-revolutionary performance, we left three restored paintings to the music of Puni and Asafiev, and for the rest we decided to make a new choreography, for which new music was needed, we ordered it to Anatoly Korolev. For old scenes, Anatoly Aleksandrovich makes a new orchestration in order to stylistically bring everything to a common denominator.
- In the old "Little Humpbacked Horse", as in all old ballets, a lot was based on pantomime. But this art has left the world, it has been lost, and no one in the auditorium will understand this today. Even if we refer to some old performance and an old name, we have to imagine how it might look today, because reconstruction in a ballet theater is impossible: different bodies of artists, different covering of the stage, different lighting. And the most important thing is a different spectator experience: people 100 years ago did not know the Internet, air transport. People did not know anything that we know today. If we even try to get closer to how it was 100 years ago, it is unlikely that anyone will amaze, and the theater should remain a living history.

Heat block is a modern multilayer material for load-bearing structures of walls, combining the advantages of concrete and effective insulation foam. The inner bearing layer of concrete with a density of up to 1200 (kg / m3) allows the installation of monolithic and prefabricated reinforced concrete floors, building buildings up to three floors high.
Polyfoam is excellent as a heater, a layer of foam of 15 cm allows you to meet the harsh requirements of Siberia for enclosing wall structures in terms of resistance to heat transfer.
The outer decorative layer under a stone or other, as agreed with the customer, is also made of high-strength concrete, which is the key to a long service life. The entire structure of the heat block is firmly and reliably connected to each other with the help of fiberglass reinforcement, which eliminates the corrosion of the bonds and the destruction of the block.
A house built from a heating block has the so-called "thermos effect", which allows to significantly, 2-3 times, reduce the owner's costs for heating and air conditioning. Ventilation of the room is carried out by installing valves (type "KIV"), or by ventilation.
Supply and exhaust ventilation of the premises is welcomed, as in any modern house, as one of the components of comfort. We often hear that the house must "breathe". A house "breathing" through the walls is a continuous, uncontrolled heat exchange with the environment, which, given the rising cost of energy resources, is a waste.
When laying walls from a heating block on glue (there are adhesives that allow laying down to -15 0 C), we exclude the "cold bridge" typical for masonry with the use of cement mortar. Having folded the walls, it remains for us to process the external seams with grout or sealant, to give the walls an aesthetic appearance, prime and paint the surface of the walls with paint for outdoor use, in any color, at the request of the customer.
Thus, in one operation we have ready-made facades, in contrast to the use of traditional materials that require several operations (laying walls made of bricks, cinder blocks, steam-hydro-insulation, wall insulation, facade decoration with siding or other facade material). At the same time, a wall with a thickness of "cinder block", 40 cm, is only a supporting structure for installing insulation and a facade, at very significant costs for masonry.
The use of a heating block allows the developer to significantly save money not only on the amount of materials used and their delivery to the construction site using heavy equipment, but also on the types and cost of work performed by the contractor.

So, you, like me, decided to start a bullet journal. And besides the fact that it must be useful, it must also be beautiful. In the video I create the first page of the month, and yes for the first time in my life. In general, this is an experiment.
Why did I decide to keep a bullet journal?
First, to record all your thoughts. And it doesn't matter whether they are good or not. The task is to unload the brain :)
Second, to write new ideas. Similar to point 1, but still a little different.
Next, be sure to mark in the calendar all the holidays of the month and major events. Create a place to mark the watched video (your opinion about it), read books, "wishes" (by the way, it is appropriate to paste them in with pictures), I might be interested in keeping track of food, but this is not accurate;)
We take a notepad and various pieces of paper, I didn’t even regret a page of the book I read (believe me, it’s like that :), tracing paper. I used hole punches, decorative tape that does not stick itself :) I created a mini-calendar on a piece of paper, etc.
Did the Zoomers invent the diary? ))))
I finally managed to do at least something by March 8, just for fun ????????
It turned out to be a real bunch ???? The color transition on the petals was made by hand only from clay, no paints)
There are many ways to emphasize the landscape features of your suburban area, you can use garden figures, buildings stylized as wells, gazebos, decorative fences and flower beds. As practice shows, the greatest impression on guests and friends from the entire list is made by a properly planned and assembled decorative mill for the garden with their own hands. It is not difficult to make it, there will always be materials for construction. There is only one condition - it is necessary to make a decorative mill in a summer cottage so that the building looks like a fully functional product, with its own style and all the attributes.
A simple windmill can bring to life the boring landscape of the autumn garden
Oddly enough, the installation of a winged vehicle on the site is not the most difficult task. Anyone who has seen a real windmill at least once, no matter whether live or in a photo, can always build its decorative version. Nothing complicated, sketch out a sketch, figure out the work in stages and make a decorative mill for the garden with your own hands. It is much more difficult to find the right design or even style for her. Without proper decoration, a decorative mill will look like a huge birdhouse, nothing more.
What style can you suggest for building a structure. It all depends on the design of the landscape in the garden and the expected effect from the installation of the mill:
There are many author's projects that use modern schemes of wind turbines with round multi-blade wind wheels. They are usually made of metal and bear little resemblance to those pretty mill buildings that were widely used in the last century. As a decorative element in the garden, they are not so much use, such windmills are more like auxiliary equipment for a summer cottage.
A small metal windmill catches the wind in the garden very well, and if you slightly retrofit the structure, it can be used as an energy source for LED flashlights or even as a drive for irrigating a flower bed.
Well, for those who care about appearance and design, you can advise yourself to make drawings of a decorative windmill in the garden, a photo, and build a windmill from wood.
Models stylized as fabulous buildings
The most popular are mills built in the style of attributes of fairy-tale characters. Most often, the body of a decorative building is made in the form of an imitation of a log house, while the shape and dimensions can be deliberately made with distortion, more squat, as if embedded in the ground.
