Hi, I am delighted that my brother told me about this site, It may be because he either got annoyed by all my pestering questions or thought I should also hear it from someone else. Either way its way cool. I am currently building a studio for creating art. I want the structure to be livable (its on a lake) so I can spend significant amounts of time there. It is a pay as you go project so it is taking me some time but I like it this way. Teachers are low on the food chain so I make just enough to have cool projects like this (I also make some $ selling art). I don't do much of the work (building)beyond assisting but I plan and orchestrate everything. So it is imperative that I know and understand everything (that can be hard sometimes). What I lack in experience I have in motivation and attitude. Here is a photo of the back (with the deck partially done).
