Welcome!!  We’re working on this site for the month of July .. you might check back later when it’s a more finished product!  If parts don’t make much sense it’s because we’re choosing images and their order and sizes and writing copy to match .. THANKS for your patience!

In 2005 we began our experiment on Troost Avenue with two empty buildings – one to live in and one to work in. Two years later, we added two demolition lots which would become our garden. Our compound now not only houses us, but also our studios, gallery, workshops, garden, chickens and pets!
