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?  Probably.
