Between the two sections of the loft are the closets and the water
. A lot of the things that work well on the boat are being incorporated into the design, too. There will be solar
and possibly wind
generation for the electric
. Instead of an empty, boxy interior
like in a more typical home, I'm building the furniture into the structure, very much like the salon
in a boat.
Your old "rafting buddies" from back in the day would be envious.
You know, when I look back on those days, I realize that I haven't changed much at the core
. Hmmm. Does that mean I've never grown up? I think of it as a good thing.
Tell Andrew I sent you when you start inquiring. He's a great guy. Used to live in Williamsburg (Brooklyn) if that means anything to you. He was there *before* it was trendy.
I'll be sure to let him know.
