So Eloquently Stated

If you haven’t seen it yet, please check out this really exceptional post by Limestone and Boxwoods.  In it, James has done a phenomenal job in illustrating how impactful a design detail like fluting can be when crafting a genuinely magnificent Home.  I am truly appreciative to not only the viewpoint; but also, the level of observation.  Yet, even as good as this piece is,  … Read More So Eloquently Stated

  Can anyone tell me who designed / built this one?  It has always been a Gem on the Burton shoreline.  We would pass it on our way to Anchorage Marina and I would sit back and relish in its splendor.  The way it sits out on the point in the noblest of fashion.  With an air of stateliness, elegance and just plain striking beauty.      And then the … Read More While We’re Talkin About the Lake

Undoubtedly “Siting” a house on a piece of property can be one of the most exciting segments of the whole building process. I would even venture to say that this is the draw that pulls so many guys into the construction profession.  This is play at the highest level ~  orchestrsting heavy equipment, managing excavating activities, executing surveying details, laying out the foundations,  Then there’s setting form boards, foundation wall panels, calling … Read More Random Snippets 1 ~ The Art of Siting

Working on a Dream ~ A Small Glimpse Into Heaven

     As I set out on a run the other evening, several thoughts were weighing heavy on my mind.  I began thinking about bills that needed to be dealt with, the economy, financial markets and the direction of this great country, when a stream came through my mind.  I am not saying in the least that this was some sort of vision, it was … Read More Working on a Dream ~ A Small Glimpse Into Heaven
