A little over a month ago I won a competition to build a storybook house at the Dallas Arboretum. I have been busy refining my design and trying to get it to a place in which it can be built. I am almost there. I met with a contractor who is going to help me build it this last Thursday, and the meeting ended up being was a huge encouragement and help. The head contractor was very excited to get to help out with the project and I received a lot of good feedback.
I have also had some friends express interest in helping me build it. I will need the most help on Saturday Jan 31st and Saturday Feb 7th. We will be putting it together out at the Arboretum on those weekeends. If you can't make it don't worry too much; it will be up at the Arboretum from mid March untill Dec. And if you can't wait that long to see it, here are some of the latest renderings from my sketchup model:
It will be located right smack in the middle of a large bamboo grove.
