Sorry I'm late...

On my way to work. Not sure what time it is. Whenever the sun comes up, I guess. I hear about snow in some parts of the country...Last Sunday, instead of blogging, I went to breakfast with my old friend Chris, his Wife Sylvia, and their son Theo, which may or may not be short for Theodore. Leaving the restaurant, we passed by this little yellow schoolhouse in Albany where I saw an old green planter box, which I happened to build. Prior to this it sat in our backyard for a couple of years.

The beautiful Jen Zahigian.

I met Chris in 1984. I met Theo more recently.

Of course, I couldn't write in my digital journal without mentioning the Airstream. This is the template for the bathroom wall. That's John Curl in the background.

Finally, the drive back to The City at the end of the day.

...and the next day, back at the Airstream.

Apartment Therapy! , & Airstream Open House!

Good news. The loft I designed and built in Oakland is featured on Apartment Therapy (.com).

In response to a couple of the comments about the sheetrock and ceilings, I thought I would post a few pics that show the framing in progress.

This was easily the most complex thing I've ever framed. It's basically a series of arched steel trusses, similar to a bridge, joined by ribs. I wish I had a photo looking straight up from the floor. That was one of the coolest views.

Obviously, my drywaller is pretty talented.


There will be an Official Open House for the AIRSTREAM the weekend of December 12-13th, which will correspond with the Berkeley Open Studios. Conveniently enough, the open studios takes place at the Sawtooth Building in Berkeley, which happens to be the same location as our shop and the Airstream.

By the way, this blogging website has changed the way things are entered and formatted, and I can't get it to display images properly. I'm not much of a computer guy, and unfortunately, I feel like the computer does a good job of making work that would otherwise seem impressive look pretty dumb.
