This week is going to be crazy. Plain and simple.
We we are doing the day gig through Wednesday and then off to a board meeting for the alma mater in, of all places, North Dakota. In addition to the bread and butter, and circle of life (traveling from NC back to long severed roots in ND) gigs, we are in the throes of moving our patriarch to a different and better facility a little closer to our day gig.
Additionally, we are still mucking around with the idea of building our own home. A new and hopefully more effective and efficient home. Not that our current home is inefficient or lacks efficacy. It doesn't. But we would like a little bit more of a yard, less fru-fru Deep South accoutrements, and almost a minimalist approach to materials due to the highly-destructive capabilities of small children. Finally, one of us wants a sun room with screen porch, and another wants motorcycles in the house -albeit relegated to a studio. Ah, pipe dreams... That may come true. It is fun to imagine these things. But, coming out of architecture, it is sometimes something completely different to live with them.
Hazel continues to move along in perfect synchronicity with the glaciers of Alaska. We are waiting for Main to be boarded up (three weeks now) for insurance reasons. We plan to start on Main when it makes sense for us to do so. We also think that we may start on Hazel lot two before too long. Albeit a smaller house, we like the less-guess nature of new builds.
As as if this was not enough, we are still ankle deep in making a decision or three about a new business. The trick is operations and finding the right people. Which we may already have on hand in the form of some friends of friends that may be looking for work in the fields that we are debating. The other trick, mentioned a few hundred times, is to create a business and not a job. The time-for-money ride is one we already know way too well.
Stay tuned... April 17th or thereabouts, should see some cool little ego stuff popping up on the national radar... even though it will be in the most subtle way possible. Also, wish us good fortune please: three days of work, two flights to ND, and an older man in a wheelchair... It's almost Christmas-like -in an asylum.
