#God’s Hardware Store

Inspired By… SunRay Kelley from Shwood Eyewear on Vimeo.

I found this guy today, and I am fascinated. His buildings all look like Hobbit homes, very whimsical and organic. As a construction guy, I have all these questions about stability and weatherproofing and maintenance, but as a designer, I’m taken by the creativity.

In the video, he talks about how a lot of what he does are ways of building that have been around for hundreds of years. To move forward, he says, you have to look back. Nothing we’re doing has not been done before, and usually the way it was done before was more elegant and durable.

I imagine I’ll be posting more about this guy in the future; I just found his facebook page, and that might keep me occupied for a while.
