Saltspring Island

The best 2 years of my life

A Pattern Language
Pilot Test

Model #2

We lived outdoors for 2 years on an idyllic site in Vesuvius on Saltspring Island.
3/4 acre on a southwest facing slope.
On a deer path, filled with Arbutus and
Fir trees, Chantrelle and Morelle mushrooms. Garfield built scale model #2.

We bought a concrete block machine. The Ital Mexicana V3. Garfield designed 2 interlocking molds: one corner, one stretcher. It looks like Machu Picchu.
