Reuse, Reclamation & A New Team Member!

Reuse, Reclamation & A New Team Member!

This week, the last remains from the house deconstruction were taken off the land, for reuse and recycling. As the materials from the deconstructed house are reused elsewhere …

… we look at the possibility of using some wood reclaimed from another deconstruction project, in our future construction.

This week we are happy to welcome HA Architecture onto The Cedars team. Jamie Crawley, Director of Architecture with HA Architecture (, will be working with us to help create our vision for The Cedars. Based here in Austin Texas, HA Architecture will be working with our chief architects, The Acre, who are based in New Brunswick, Canada. As Acre move forward from the concept stage of the design for The Cedars, they will transition to HA Architecture, who will then do the construction drawings and coordinate with local engineers and consultants on the ground. We look forward to the beautiful and inspiring creations of this teamwork!

Work in our garden continues this Texan springtime. Adding fresh soil and compost to the garden just got a whole lot easier! (and from Bill's perspective, a whole lot more fun!)

Fresh leaves have emerged from our many live oaks … Our golden ball tree is in bloom … And our peaches are coming along nicely too!


Signing off with a poppy surprise on our land!

Until next week,

Bill & Marilyn.
