When in doubt ... Dance!

Thanks to all who stopped by our booth at the Home & Garden Show in Columbus this past Feb., 2011. It was great to meet the hundreds of people that we were able to chat with. Frances and I will be continuing to add to this website and offer more and more samples of our artists' work.We're still hunting for that perfect spot to set up shop and, as of today, it's looking like Northern Kentucky is getting the most votes. But even though we'll be located in Kentucky, we'll be available for projects no matter where you are. Theming is something new to most of you but, I want you to know that you don't have to have a roller-coaster in your yard to give us a call. We have had multiple designs in what you may consider a very normal home: Basements converted into wine cellars; the Man Cave that wants to be more unique than the next; that one-of-a-kind kid's room or outdoor retreat. We have twelve (12) studio theme artists on staff to assist you in making your dreams come to life.

The Library Project

As in many small towns, there's a sickness we often call progress. What I'm speaking of is the demolition of old buildings, our link to our past, heritage, and the loss of fine craftsmanship. I've heard every excuse in the book on why it seems necessary to level an old building to put up a parking lot. There are even songs written about it (Paving Paradise, Janis Joplin).
I was asked to create a prototype of a building in Punx'y, PA. that doesn't exist any longer, at 1/10th scale to the original. The only info I had was an old announcement back when the building was new, and a tattered, old photograph of what it looked like.

The project is being sponsored by the Rotary Club of Punxsutawney, PA. (yup ... home of Punxsutawney Phil, the Groundhog). Visionary and Rotary President, Tom Chelgren approached me with the idea. He wanted to create a walk-through exhibit of Punxsutawney, circa 1960. He, along with project chair and mentor George C. (Butch) White, assisted me on the making of this first prototype. The eventual plan is to have a series of buildings, most of which do not exist any longer. The finished row of buildings will line an approach path to their annual Christmas Tree display in the central park. Awesome idea, but I don't think anyone knew the amount of work it was going to take to pull this off (not even me). Take a look at the slide show below and see how it all came together.    -Sr.
