While the front of the house looks like a complete war zone the back of the house is a different story. The Swedish newspaper Dagens Industri was here to do a story on me and my house.

Swedish photographer Anna Maria Zuellert caught this photo of the backyard….

…which is the opening of the article.

If you happen to read Swedish you can catch some of my life story and long accidental road to the design business here.

Its funny how life takes twist and turns and where it leads you can be many surprising places.

Now while most of the back yard is done (not all of it)  the front of the house is a different story.

This happened in a matter of just a few days- the disappearing garage.

Where the heck did the garage go?

Total mayhem.  It’s looks like a bomb hit the front yard!

DAY  6

Digging 5′ holes for footers. We live in the mountains and on a hill so everything needs extra steel.

Kurt Gibbs the friend/architect I wrangled to help me with this project takes a look at some last minute solutions.  The view everywhere is so amazing, we almost don’t want to have any walls!

This below is the setting of my future office.

This door and deck will be widened so the new office space will have a great view and a big deck.

Things have been on hold for a few days to get an updated structural engineering plan but got started back up today.

Really looking forward to having this magical spot to work!
