Celo Cabin

This 1500 square foot cabin I designed with Samsel Architects features several green building features including an energy efficient envelope, high efficiency equipment, certified cedar shingles, a rain water collection cistern and dual flush toilets.

The house is located on an organic farm and sited along a wooded edge of a pasture. Care was taken to limit the visual impact the house had on the surrounding neighbors.

Concrete counter tops were made with recycled content and pebbles reclaimed from the dredging of a local river.

A cypress ceiling and maple cabinets, trim and floors lend warmth to the interior.

River stones from the site were used for the stone walls.

Graffiti Artist

Audacious, controversial, and secretive. British graffiti artist Banksy has created some of the most striking commentary on politics and society through his use of stencils.

Recent works include artwork in New Orleans after Katrina

Winter Formal '08

Thanks to everyone for coming out to our 2nd annual Winter Formal party. The crowns were passed on to King Lauren and Queen Michelle. Hugh Hefner and Rudolph would be proud.

Chuck and Aimee looked fly

Glamorous Marc and Stacy

Ahhhh, Eeeee, Ooooo?

The Brezny effect: upping the formal ante

Keith and Beth would have won best couple - however, such an award did not exist.

Special thanks to the 2007 Queen Sumaya and King Aaron for fulfilling their righteous duty of passing on the crowns to our 2008 winners.
