Movers are coming on Friday and since we will be switching internet providers it may be a while before I am able to log back in (kids are at school and Joe and I aren't exactly tech savvy), so I want to clarify a point that is prominent in the news: Trolls and misinformation have been around since t...

Capitalism without regulation isn't much better than piracy. When some are consumed by power, greed and profit, do you really think they will look out for what is best for society or simply focus on enriching themselves at the expense of everyone else? The mainstream media attempted to demonize demo...

Our last table was a solid piece in oak that we designed several inches thick that took 8 guys to move in without the legs. We had to leave it when we moved because it weighed too much assembled: https://www.flickr.com/photos/125471081@N02/16363528926/in/album-72157648103895493/ I want a table that ...

SDR, I'll make the suggestion to Joe. We liked how the table at Kentucky Knob could be taken apart. We have 8 Eames chairs, but seriously how often do you need a table that seats 8? I see that room along with the kitchen (work space) as being the most lived in.

We have a temp gate and will...

We finally received occupancy and stay during weekends since the kids' room are set up. Joe is finishing up detail projects but after nearly 3 years we were anxious to get in. Cabinet doors are not finished as well as restoring original tables/cabinetry in the living room (originally the dormitory)....

What was being done with regulations will only get worse under the Trump administration:

I love the latched door as well, as well as the entire house! I understand that many might not like all the choices we made but we inherited a ruin that had been abandoned for almost a decade in which many of the original parts had been either stolen or destroyed over time. This is our permanent hom...
