A Very Special House Guest

Architect Rocio Romero relaxes in the vintage Eames 670 Lounge Chair
Last Saturday The Minnie House was host to the LV Home's architect and inspiration, Rocio Romero, and her latest Open House tour. Around 100 LV Home enthusiasts visited the sparkling modernist gem that I am so happy to call home, and although I can't speak for the visitors, the tour was certainly enjoyable for me as I'm always delighted to show people around and answer questions about the house and the construction process. I met a succession of lovely people and will happily host another tour for Rocio in the New Year.

'Pacifica: A New Home for Modern Architecture'

By the dawn's early light...
A couple of days ago I was interviewed here at The Minnie House by Gabriela Segovia-McGahan and Dustin McGahan from the PacificaPatch web news site, and the result was this lovely piece about me, the house, and my mum. They may even write a little more after they join the Open House tour this Saturday.

My new succulent garden is shaping up nicely

I just made this brand new HD video of the interior of the house, with musical accompaniment composed and played quite beautifully by my girlfriend Hye Won. Enjoy!

Picture This

Street Life

On another glorious, hot and sunny day, under a clear blue sky, the guys from Bragato Paving brought The Minnie House one big step closer to receiving the coveted certificate of completion from the building inspector.

A couple of weeks ago Inspector Chai outlined nine conditions that still need to be met, and so far we've taken care of four of them, with a further three in process. We'll get there in the end...
