In my past professional lives, I have been a salesman, an auto mechanic, a draftsman, a security guard, a cartographer of cemeteries, and a Russian, Serbian, and Croatian Linguist whilst in the Army. Now, I have found my calling in life, hence the architectural student status. I am in my 5th and last year of schooling to get my Bachelors of Architecture.

For those that have asked, I am from Tennessee and always will be, regardless of what state I am currently residing, hence the TN in my name.

View of the Chicago River

(viewed 345 times)
Union Station in Chicago is on the banks of the Chicago river, and the
tracks were almost level with the level of the water. This was the view as
we rolled out of the station.

The seventh and last of my source pictures.

This was taken at a local Mississippi Outsider Artist's residence, (named Earl of course) in Bovina, MS.

The construction of his residence / art shop / art studio / juke joint was accomplished by Earl using found, scrap materials. It is truly a work in progress.

The third of my source pictures.

This shows a detail of the structural column that was used to hold up part of the second floor balcony at Earl's place.

As you can see, he uses found materials for the creation of his residence, not all of which can truly be considered structurally sound.
