Sacked by the "downturn", an unemployed architect touring the country in a bus...



I used to live in New York City. I designed homes for the tycoons of Wall Street; Park Avenue, Scarsdale, Greenwich. It was great fun. And, after years of saving up for a down payment, I was just about to buy my own little place in Fleetwood, half an hour north of the city, when the economy fell apart. Architects are like canaries in a coal mine when the economy slows, and true to form, there were massive layoffs in firms all over the country. Devastation of the profession. So, I decided to try to find something else to do for a while. I bought a 23' school bus and I'm on the road to see if I can figure out what that might be.

The Last Pieces!

I finished fabricating the last pieces today..  Wooohooo!


Click here for a Flickr show of the last couple of days, and today's grand finale: the arm and back rests.


All that's left now is final sanding, pre-finishing, glue-up, final finishing, and the metal tie rods between the legs.


Then, I turn to sales, while I get CNC fabrication going.
