I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it doesn’t count if it doesn’t get built. Projects that for one reason or another got put in the drawer only to never see the light of day again. I call these “dead projects.”

Finally … the 2012 Life of an Architect Playhouse design for the Dallas CASA Parade of Playhouses is revealed, (might even be the best one yet!)

I wrote a post back on August 02, 2010 that discussed the possibility of designing and building a low cost modern house. This is no small task because modern houses despite their apparent simplicity, are actually demanding and require a skill level of the contractor building such a house to think and plan far in advance of the current status of the work. This type of skill comes at a cost and getting a contractor who simply fits the bill as a low cost provider to build a modern house will yield you a house that is something different all-together.

When these playhouses get built, it’s easy to think of them as things instead of a collection of parts. I think about what materials I want to use while keeping a budget in mind. The materials I select and the design I try and put together is intended to reflect all the actual joints and patterns that the materials will make when they are used in the construction of this particular playhouse.
