Preservation Research Office, socially about once a year. In 2011 he rode along to narrate the VW van/architecture tour /bar crawl trip we bought at a St. Margaret school auction. I recently saw him at the Way Out club where some SMOS school parents were performing in a rock band. One time he asked me when I would stop writing bad mansard. The answer? Never, or at least not until I have a bad mansard from every state.
I can now say I have Alaska! A lakefront gem on Mirror Lake in Chugiak, Alaska. But seriously, as homeowner Allison points out, if you're living on a beautiful lake who care what the roof looks like. I imagine this lake ices over in the winter and you could ice skate all winter. Sigh. I wish any lake around here would freeze over to ice skate upon.
*I would like to point out that in this picture my wonderful husband is drinking bourbon from a Voltron coffee mug.
