Architecture apprentice for life.
Retired from rat race.
I was raised in Georgetown; university in Lubbock; lived in Houston (where I worked while finding answers to humanity's shortcomings).
I am young, enthusiastic, and flowing with creativity. I am proud through selflessness.
I seek bonds with similar people.
My parents still watch TV, and my friends have molded their lives to urban-materialisms.
Thank (GOD) for those who've kept their sanity.

I was all ready to build one to dry mesquite beans when I remembered how fond pack rats are of mesquite beans.



Sandwich and/or pin bug screen and/or wire metal mesh at air intake and exit points.
Door can be weather stripped and latched.
The environment inside is not a desirable living environment (during the day).

My last visit to Wheaton Labs was for the ATC of 2017.
While there, I documented the solar dehydrator that Tim Barker and Rob Griffin built during the ATC of 2016.
I have found the time to bring that forward. :)
