While this is a little off-topic, the creativity and DIY attitude of architect Olle Lundgren is pure Brownstoner goodness. Though we like nothing more than to spend our Saturday’s trolling salvage yards in search of that inexpensive yet perfect find, we are admittedly complete amateurs. Lundgren is a pro. The repurposed ferry boat that he and his wife now live on in San Francisco’s Mission Bay is also a good example of the kind of modern design we tend to like: Old bones with strong, clean modern elements like the glass garage door. And the wooden water tank that Lundgren turned into a pool at his weekend house is pure genius in our opinion. Do others share our enthusiasm?
