My residential project in Ucluelet is really coming along. Jamie, the builder is going to enter the house for a Georgie award. The relationships you make through your career are really important, since recently I have called on classmates for photography, and trades I have met for other projects.

Here are some pics of the house from my recent trip, and of the flower store in Ucluelet that I designed with the owner.

Road to Kennedy Lake- Canopy of Birch Trees

Breakfast Television emailed me to confirm my segment on their show...I am a bit nervous...not that I don't know enough, or can't present, but that I am vulnerable in a way that I have never been before. Look for me the week of May 5th...coincidentally, my birthday.

My mom is having a dinner party and inviting all of my girlfriends. Should be lotsa fun. Debbie already asked me what colour jello I want later...I know what that means Deb! Another fun Ukee weekend!

The deck guy called when I was gone to start the deck...ironic...since he made a point to call and say it wouldn't be until the after the end of the month. If I did not give trades at my work a schedule of some kind, and keep them posted, they would not work for me, and I would be in I wonder how they can just show up to start work on the deck without any warning. The level of customer service is more than terrible...the fence looks good though...

the new fence and deck

What the fence will look like...the contractor had this picture in his binder, so I know he sees my vision...horizontal rough cedar 1x4 spaced 3/4" appart.

Concept sketch of what my deck will look's only 8' wide, but 35' long! The space as is is now...can't wait to arrange my new deck! I have red and red/white striped outdoor fabric and plan on sewing my own cushions with piping.
