A few months ago I posted sketches for the new studio I am building next to my house. Today the work began. After a light snow the great whiteness was removed to expose the ground of winter.
Earth is dug out, boulders as big as a car hood are discovered. All earth is set to one side, while the snow pile is set to the other.
The process is all part of a larger practice. Practice of architecture, and imagining the future. A practice in faith that imbedding this idea for living with the land is a sound decision in this particular place.
Let the adventure begin !
