Re: New house design on a mountain top above the Kelowna airport, B.C

Hi Bill

Please share with all. Yes! Concrete will be poured tomorrow. Hail Mary! Thank your crew for their work and their ability to cope with my thinking. Jeff in particular was responsive and competent and great to work with. Mike is inspired and artistic talent lurks close to the surface. We are not done yet and will involve Mike in thinking about water! We also have another building to consider – the “art studio” Thanks and regards,

Jan and Lidia
