It’s been exactly 7 months since I left on December 17th 2013 to start the Harmon Estate Project. I am finally back in Seattle!!
First on my to do is pie and coffee. Check! (thanks Katy!)
What a long 7 months – but I’m home with a shop it would take me a life time to build. And boy am I ready to get started! Now comes the other hard part. Finding a new space, while waiting with bated breath for the truck to arrive. I owe a great deal to David & Christian Lindow, Frank, Patty, & Dougle Dorion, Reg Gomez, & Madelyne Salyer for all of their help in the last week – getting my things on the truck – and just being wonderful people (+ dog).
Here you can see a bit of the madness/genius? undertaken in loading the Hauser jig borer.
Reg looks pretty smug and impressed in that picture.
and I have to say this was a pretty welcome sight! but I’ll be even more elated to see the truck arrive in the Emerald City.
and I will certainly miss my correspondence pal Mordechai, who stayed true through the many late nights at my desk, at Château Harmon.
The Harmon Estate has been left in good hands and the remainder of the inventory will soon be up for sale – details of which will posted here in the near future. So stay tuned! Also – if you don’t already know about it, the family is hosting another sale of the antiques, furniture, & rarities collected by the Harmon family over three generations starting this August. Pictures and info coming soon! Click here to see some of the inventory.
And you know, if you’ve never heard of a man named Charles Augustus Sauter, you are missing out. I recommend checking out his patents here & here. As far as I know, NASA has a lot to thank him for and he was Dennis’s best friend.
