These are some of my Freelance Projects.  Some I have built; others I just did the design work for.

Manayunk renovation/addition
Permits were approved in June, construction to begin July 2009.
description. Clients were interested in updating their tiny kitchen and gaining necessary storage space, while making it functional and a central connection point  between the outdoors and the rest of the house.  The kitchen is the ‘default’ entrance to the home and as such deserves to be a welcoming environment.  After back and forth discussions with the clients, we have a scheme that enlarges the kitchen and opens it up to the dining room.  We have also decided to enlarge the second floor bedroom and update the backyard with a new fence and multiple seating and storage zones.  I prefer to design ‘on site’, so most of the details (storage & the fence) will be worked out during construction.  Click image to see the drawings.
ext m. cedar, hardi siding, kolbe windows & door
int m. reclaimed timber countertops, custom wood storage

I started volunteering with my friends Chris & Emily Stromberg about 6 months ago.  They have subsequently took me on board as a designer/carpenter at Southern Liberties.  http://www.southernliberties.com/
This particular project is for a 'soon to be' LEED Platinum house in South Philadelphia.
It has been a priceless experience and I can’t wait for the next project!
They have created a comprehensive blog of the entire process.  It is a great reference for architects and those looking to renovate.  Click image to be redirected to the blog.

my first project (and job!) out of school was to design and build a gallery and studio for AxD along with the principal. Ed Barnhart, AIA  http://www.a-x-d.com
It was one of the most rewarding and educational experiences…much better than sitting behind a desk!  Click image to see more views of the project.
awards. AIA Philadelphia Honor Award, AIA Pennsylvania Honor Award
m. douglas fir panel system, exposed brick, cedar, ‘lots’ of reclaimed and existing materials!
