Orcas Island………

In 2008 the wife and I stayed on Orcas Island in the San Juan archipelago off the coast of washington st. It was gorgeous and laid back and while we were there we visited the Orcas Island Pottery shop and it was awesome.

Check out below  the classic Northwest native carving of a whale on the side of the building. The connection between the carvings and mythology are really inspiring.

Check out this treehouse on the same property.

    Tohner, you have been putting out so much good stuff lately I haven’t had time to craft a worthy comment, although I may do some retro-jacking this weekend. Developments at work have me putting together not one but two small crews for the 2014 building season. Not what I had in mind for the year but it fits with my plans to buy a couple rural acres here on the Florida East Coast and now for some reason I am thinking about some kind of boondocks retreat in the hills above Monterey.

    Meanwhile, I have taken the liberty of posting a link to my own tree house story. I hope you don’t mind…

      Looking forward to a blog- jacking. I remember that tree house post it’s a really good one. It’s a strange feeling re visiting places you built in another life especially when it involves taking it down. Sometimes I think people forget how much emotion goes into building things by those that build it.
      Keep truckin-
      Until we blog again- tohner

On my way to work this morning the road had a bit of water/river covering it.

Yea that's right I'm fixing a tiara with a tiny pink glue gun filled with a silvery sparkly glue stick. You wanna fight about it. #dadlife#thuglife#saturdaymorning The bluebonnets are pretty iconic in this part of Texas they often cover entire pastures in a blanket of blue hues. Combined with the Indian paintbrushes (red) it can be quite the site. We take them for granted and sometimes even curse them for the crowds of tourist it brings. I'm trying to do better about that (the cursing)and I'm starting with enjoying this bluebonnet that has sprouted extra early in my backyard due to all the warm weather we have been having. #tx#bluebonnets #texas#appreciatewhatyouhave Trimming is in the air today......#artisanbuilders#customhomes#homebuilder#trimcarpentry The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.
