Jay and 3 surfers are on a surf/photo trip on Vancouver Island for a Surfer’s Journal article, traveling in a camper Jay built. Yesterday they visited Godfrey. In this photo (Jay at left), they’re looking into the cabin of Godfrey’s latest sailboat. I’m hoping they get a chance to visit Godfrey’s best friend, master builder and surfer Bruno Atkey.

Both Godfrey and Bruno are featured in our book Builders of the Pacific Coast.

Jay’s San Francisco home is featured in our forthcoming book Small Homes.

Gary and Luann's Treehouse

img_5389Hey Lloyd!

I can’t wait for the new book. I’m ready for another dose of inspiration.

I just finished a treehouse in our backyard. The place in Haleiwa that Tom brought you to. I used as much recycled materials as possible. All siding from Fort Shafter, windows from the 1930’s, sinks, bathroom fixtures, toilet, shower stall is $90 stock tank from Lowe’s. I made the front door from a couple 4×6’s, cabinets are from old Douglas fir siding and an 8×8 I milled. I welded the stairs and made the rail from mahogany flooring.

Later,
–Gary and Luann
