Tim Sullivan's House
see photos below

Tim Sullivan's homestead is on 4 acres, 20 minutes from San Miguel de Allende, Tim is my neighbor. Present major constructions include: (1) the main house (70 sq. M), detached composting toilet, service room, carport, and shop (37 sq. M) (2) the large shop + studio apartment (90 sq. M), (3) privacy walls. Much of the job is complete. Both Tim and I are interested in stretching the possibilities of concrete. He liked my roundie-curvie house and concrete doors and decided to go for it at his own site. It has been an evolutionary, spontaneous, design-as-you-go type project. We do work from modeling clay, models but often make them in the morning for work to be done in the afternoon.

I've been responsible for the basic forms, working from Tim's "footprints". He has been doing the colors and a lot of the finish work. We have worked together on most all designs. All roofs have been built with lightweight aggregate and walls are either lightweight concrete or local rock. Thin shell form work is faster and easier when I use these stucco tools.

The locals call the project "Timolandia". It has been a lot of fun as well as an incredible opportunity to experiment with forms and engineering.
