H y p e r B l u e

My brother, Frank created another fantastic timepiece. Gorgeous in every aspect of its design and functionality. #18 of his collection, it is named "HyperBlue" for it rich, striking color of the meteorite face. He informed me it was just photographed for a watch magazine article that should appear this March in iW (International Watch Magazine - ), a prestigious magazine for the watch enthusiast.

Cannot wait until the article comes out! So awesome! Hopefully, he posts up more pics of this one on his site. To check out more of my brother's work, access his website.

view point

we have this elevation going on throughout parts of our back yard. taking advantage of this little nook and with good views of the city from this vantage point, we decided to pour a stabilizing wall with concrete 'block' steps of varying sizes leading up to this little area. we placed a bench (not of our making) up there so we can sit and watch the sunsets. that bench will ultimately be replaced with a more custom one of our making...

may make some revisions and change the lower steps to be wider, but we like the basic design of it.

southeastern side yard

Our attempt at quick landscaping for our side yard. Various mix of varying height steel boxes/with concrete 'lids' and concrete table top & step stones. Quarter wash was used for the landscape rock. Pleasant area. I think a couple little concrete cylindrical stools would offset it quite nicely...

Quick, easy and way better than just dirt!

taken before the plethora of dog paw marks...  ;-)

modular concrete bench with integrated planter

Bench is created as 3 separate pieces. We are designing more components to be able to add on or change the configuration to have integrated planters, or without planters, make 90° (L) shape benches or just bases so that the user can place the benches in any configuration to suit their needs. Still in the designing stages but the main bench with and without planters is a stable and set design. We likeee!
