Some inspiration from the Mid-West

Posted in Uncategorized on June 4, 2011 by michaelfgallagher

I recently visited family in Wisconsin and Minnesota. I’m always looking at architecture, art and nature for inspiration. I found some beautiful historic buildings that I think may influence a current design.

Carter Park Overlook nearing completion

Posted in Uncategorized on June 4, 2011 by michaelfgallagher

Arnie and the crews at Double Diamond are making great progress on his spec home “Carter Park Overlook”. I’ve often noticed that the closer you get to finishing,  the more slowly it seems to go. All those little items add up.

At this time the cabinetry and finish carpentry are well under way. Plumbing, electrical and tile setting are also moving along. The home should be finished and ready for a new owner this summer.

I”d like pay to tribute to a wonderful person, a great architect and an inspiration to me. Donald A Ramberg passed away recently in Carlsbad, California. I worked for Don while I was living out there and we became great friends. I’ll miss him, but what I’ve learned from him will be utilized in my architecture practice and life.
