Honeymoon Suite

Got this email from Todd, a new friend of ours from Saranac, NY, who we met this summer and who is staying out at the house the next few days on his honeymoon:
we are safe, sound, comfortable and married at the lost river modern.


will post and update with our progress next few days, with tub and observations.

They brought a Dutchtub with them and they're leaving it til New Years! (As you can see from below, Todd takes his Dutchtub with him when he travels...that's him in the back of the canoe.)

I Recogize Those Cabinets, and Those Floors, and Those Views...

Res4 has managed to get themselves into the paper again. Here's a NYT profile of a prefab they finished in the Bronx on what is basically an urban infill lot - on the water. (Even having grown up and lived in and around NYC, it still surprises me that there are so many working-class neighborhoods with homes on the water.) This house was in design when we first met with Res4, and was a point of reference for a lot of Res4's answers to our questions (timeline, matls, etc.). Fun to see it finished.
