Inspired by the craft of building and architecture
Wednesday, July 13, 2011
Here it's all about mass, structure and reinforcement. This really is just crazy. I love the creativity and the fact that they were able to incorporate boulders found on site. The hanging light fixture is interesting too. I like the size and shape and the balance it brings. It's a cool compliment to the boulders in the fireplace wall.
And check this. It's the loft on the back side of the fireplace. A reading nook with a massive chuck of chiseled stone. Cozy up.
I'm a 3rd generation home builder and remodeler in Birmingham, Michigan. I have a passion for the way things were back when we started Capaldi Building in 1945. Back when homes were literally built from scratch and guys ate homemade sandwiches out of tin lunch pails. The art and craft of building is something that inspires me every day. I hope that this blog inspires more people to take pride in the space they call home.
