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 Tall and the Short of it.

 Here are a few pics of the finished tall chair, and some pics of the third and possibly final in the series, another low chair, nearly complete.

More on the Tall Chair

 Almost done!  I like this one better.  I plan to build one more, normal chair height, with simpler detailing, and hopefully a viable production product.

I am job hunting now, too.  Going to Lexington, MA for New Year's.

Remember when I used to write a lot?

Busy....
