Junk Architect ~ My Home Furnishings StoreJune 6th, 2011 in blog, member junk
Back in 1990 I realized my dream, by opening a home store featuring my junk creations and furniture. I found a great location in West Hartford, Connecticut. With basically no money to innvest I took a week off from my day job and started renovating the space. I was working 18-hour days doing demolition, finish construction, fixture building, painting, signage, electrical, lighting and plumbing.
It was one of the craziest, yet one of most enjoyable times of my life. In 1995 my son Dylan was born and it was the same month the lease on the space expired. So with two children it was time to pack it in and be grateful for the amazing experience and all the memories.
I hope you enjoy my little trip back-in-time.
