“Songbird” Home/Studio

Songbird is the home and studio of me and my family.   Set on eight acres overlooking western Hennepin County near Minneapolis, MN it was conceived and built with five architect/carpenters from IIIAD (a design/build firm in Minneapolis).  This project was started in 2005 (completed in 2015) and includes over 7,000 square feet of living space, 4 bedrooms, 4 1/2 baths, exercise/theater room, 3 porches, photo darkroom, wood/metal shop and multi-level working studio space.  I dedicated myself to the ten-year span to this project as a carpenter and laborer – putting my teaching and professional art practice “on ice.”  Was it worth this sacrifice?  Yes!
