Villa Maria, somewhere in Sweden [Note: See first comment] Not too long ago, I ran across a quirky little blog called Below the Clouds (written in Swedish), and recently up popped this lovely project which I’m drooling over. I’m mad for wood houses, especially Scandinavian wood houses…. Hit their site to blow up the photos, [...]

I guess you can’t have it all. Monday started off great as the masons began framing the first floor walls which brought life back into the project. A few hours later, our Monday jubilation climaxed as Beanie Wells broke out the longest TD run in BCS Championship history against the “fast” SEC champions (soon [...]

As we have remodeled our kitchen I have had to do quite a bit of rearranging electrical. Since we moved everything to the opposite walls there are spots were we had power, that we no longer need it. For example we had a fan above our stove, and a light above our sink. [...]

Worked to finish in the dark last night, so had to wait until this morning to take pics. Still need to tension the cables and cut off the excess, but I'm checking it off my [...]

Found this article in the New York Times today on an upcoming MOMA show of pre-fabricated houses. Technically, I think ours is a kit rather than a full pre-fab; but the idea is [...]

This inspirational project was completed by architect Edward M Baum and developer Diane Cheatham in Dallas in 2004. As I review the Dwell article detailing the project I am reminded at the similarities to our current project. The project was a prototype for building modern and affordable homes on Dallas’s standard building [...]

This is the story of my long relationship with a book case. Kind of like those stories (urban legends?) when a guy buys a relatively nondescript painting in a garage sale for 5 bucks and it turns out to be a long-lost Picasso or something. Except that my version doesn't involve a garage sale (I got it for free!) nor does it involve anything as potentially precious as a long-lost Picasso... So,

Casa Cachagua, Cachagua, Chile. Built: 2006-2007. This house just knocks my socks off… Black-stained pine on a stone foundation, and extra care was taken to build around the trees, rather than cutting them down. Always a good thing. See some more lovely photos and drawings at Plataforma Arquitectura. Another project the firm did that I’m [...]

between drawing, design and the take your pants off kind of living you do day to day. Where do we put our clothing? Where do we put the vacuum? How about books? Where should the bar of soap sleep it off? Why does the beautiful rainshower head function [...]
