I've discovered the benefits of a mid-week forest reprieve. Shade is something of a rarity & valuable commodity in the desert. The forest is only an hour away - how cool is that geographical contrast?! Smelling trees and feeling air below 100 degrees on my skin was uplifting to say the least... and now back to work. #forest #trees #idyllwild #sanbernardinoforest #vacation

Repetition is really working wonders on these #pattern #materials #repetition #plantpots #stripes

Many lessons learned - more tangible than existential. Douglas fir is extraordinarily soft wood - perhaps not the best choice for this application. Oops. Cutting twelve foot lengths of wood straight is bloody challenging. Doing all of them at once and leaving them in the heat is bloody stupid - they will twist and warp like a methed out guy scratching his arms in line at Del Taco. Said warping then presents complications on adhesion. Lastly, today I learned I should have stained and sealed both sides before nailing the damned things up. A big oops but I'll deal with the repercussions later - this has been six weeks of adventures in millwork and I've had enough. FYI this is the future office/computer room in the studio. #homeowner #ownerbuilder #woodpaneling #dougfir #douglasfir #millwork #carpentry #midcenturyarchitecture #interiordesign #yuccavalley #learningfrommistakes

Porch portrait: one day soon I will begin work on the big house. I'm preparing for it by spending time with it. #homeowner #ownerbuilder #architecture #architecturewithoutarchitects #yuccavalley

Working this week has been made possible by two air conditioners and a skill saw // Pulled this one off a neighborhood message board // #highdesert #yuccavalley #joshuatree #hidesert #hidezert #hidez #california #desert #desertart #heatwave #hotasballs #ownerbuilder #handpainted #handlettering #hydesert #sanbernardinocounty #hotterthanhell
