Well, some of my collegues here on the blog have given a little more freindly intro to who they are. So I guess I'll do the same. I'm Jake England. I've been married for about 7 yrs. I started dating my wife about 11 or twelve years ago, still love her like nothin' else. We have three cute little girls. Yes three. Its quite a handful, and my home is overwhelmingly feminine at times. Can't wait until they are teenagers. I'm so glad to be their dad though, we sure have a lot of fun. My family and I enjoy the outdoors a lot, and my little girls love to ride in Daddy's '79 Landcruiser. I have to admit, I may have had some influence on Jake Smith's addiction to the classic car he mentioned in his intro. I have sentimental ties to mine. I had a '76 landcruiser when I met my wife we did a lot of off roading and hiking while dating. It just always brings back memories.

I fell into home design while pursuing a career in architectural illustration. Art is another hobby, my wife is also very good [better] at it and has recently started selling modern paintings here and there. Architecture is something I have always enjoyed, and will probably always be involved in. I have remodeled with my wife an old victorian home built in 1907, then we built a cape code style home, and more recently a craftsman style home which we love. Recently though, we purchased a new building lot around the corner which will have less traffic, more space and more privacy. Soooo, looks like I'll be starting over. At least I get to try another one of my designs. Its always nice to see a design built and know how it turns out. Well, enough for now... if you've read this far. I hope you're entertained. More on home design to come.
