Kitchen Construction

I have been productive this week and made a spice rack, a bar to go over the kitchen sink, and a papertowel holder. They were kind of spontaneous, inspired after looking at an IKEA catalogue and thinking we could use one of those but why buy when I can build one, out of electrical conduit nonetheless. Some pictures:
the jars are from IKEA, sadly we don't yet have a pottery wheel and kiln...someday

Mother's Day

Happy Mother’s Day!
Laura and I want to express gratitude for all the ever patient, sacrificial, loving mothers out there (especially our two) with a collection of Calvin and Hobbes. Enjoy.

The Airport

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, its been a little busy. I started a project at work that I am really enjoying. We are developing a myriad of options for DFW Airport to renovate their existing terminals in the next five to twenty years. It is mostly concept work which after three years of construction work is a nice change. Another plus is they moved the five of us who are working on it out to an office at the airport which makes for a slightly shorter commute and a less stressful working environment. Oh and the parking garage we park in has a crazy spiral vertical drive (which we have contemplated going down in office chairs…).
