budding architect


I don't want to blow your mind this morning, but do yourself a favor and check out this quick video of Stella (taken when she was less than three years old) reviewing a set of my architectural drawings and breaking them down. She's talking about "waterproofing" and "caseage" (her word), and all sorts of other stuff she heard me talking about while designing this project. It's pretty awesome.


If you need even more awesomeness, and need to get schooled in other architectural things like "the window you peek out and the deck you don't fall down", then check out the extended version below.



So bittersweet, watching these. They are so amazing, but what's more amazing is wondering where that little girl went. Once they cross the threshold into four years old and above, this version remains just a faint memory. Bittersweet.

    1. Crazy what she absorbed from all of that. I didn't have client meetings at home, was I really talking about waterproofing out loud that often? I know one thing for sure...she's going to be a future receptionist for THIS architect! :)

      Thanks for pinning the delphiniums!

    1. Thanks, LT. I know, but we didn't take nearly as much video when she was younger than we should've. :(

    1. Thanks, Jody! It's an honor to have you comment here! Love Coffee with an Architect!

      No way, though, she's working for me as soon as she can take a message fast enough. :)

    1. They are actually twins, separated at birth by the time-space continuum. You didn't know?

  5. That's gorgeous and heartwarming. It's amazing what she absorbed. I better start watching my language!

    1. Eff ya, you'd better watch that mouth!

      Actually, don't worry about it. My husband swears like ten sailors and Stella has never uttered a bad word. Until recently when we gave her some six-year-old privileges: to get whatever she wants out of the refrigerator when she's hungry and to say whatever bad word she wants to, as long as it's at home with us. She's partial to "damn". :)
