A look at the residence for #5-1 because houses are fun and can often be recognized with a regional flair. Pure Seattle, with it's link to Arts and Crafts punctuated with the plate windows found in Seattle architecture but not in, say, Portland or Pasadena. Why? Well, one reason is the view. Puget Sound is incomparably more appealing as a gazing vista from practically every room the house.

The gate is situated within a courtyard, barely visible on the far left of the photo.

howing the upper pickets at 1-1/8" thickness, mortised into the rails toward a result as impenetrable as Alcatraz, which leads us to the question: Why was the three-mile swim from "The Rock" to the shores of San Francisco so improbable--essentially escape proof--when Jack LaLanne did it three times. The first time, in the 1970's when Charles lived just a few blocks away, LaLanne swam the distance handcuffed! Later, towing a row boat. Hard to believe? If you promise to return, you can follow this link and watch the video.

St Charles, Illinois

A normal home, with a normal 3rd-party backyard fence and a side walkway not designed by a team of world class landscape designers. Oh, and the gates, which were wisely chosen by our patrons: a subdued styling with lasting workmanship. All this normalcy of St Charles, Illinois appealing to the normalness of Charles, who was normally raised just a ways downstate.

San Francisco

We include #5-9 because the house is located directly across the street from the old veritable Lincoln Park Golf Course in San Francisco. Once the crown jewel of the City's courses, it long ago fell to a neglected status but for the working class thugs like Charles, drawn for decades to the stunning views of the Pacific, the Bay, and the Golden Gate Bridge on almost every hole.

To this day, Ben prefers hand-planing each of the vertical pickets to a satin-smooth finish.

With the right collection of planes and the knowledge of how to hone them to a perfect edge, the hand-planed approach delivers better results than, say, the drum sander.

You don't get rivulet shavings like this with a dull edge.
