  1. That’s a great picture. Is that one of a house you worked on? I look forward to this workshop coming up. I’ve got some great ideas for some more.

  2. I’ve been wondering on the these houses looks like you have any pictures or videos posted also here so that we can see how it does looks like? I’m very curios and can wait to see it, it’s like it has very nice features including the exterior and interior like doors, Magnificent Los Angeles windows, bedroom, dining room
