Barely-a-House was just the Beginning

I met Peter at Penland School in North Carolina and took this portrait of him in 1983.  While at Penland he lived at “Barely-a-House on Hardly-a-Road”, but while there he did a major transformation on the house.  His backyard in 1983 with sauna, decks, fire-circles, dining tables and the natural world was just the beginning of the vision that he has been working on here at Roaring Beach in Tasmania for the last 2 decades. What a trip to take the same portrait 33 years later on the opposite side of the world. Click on the images to see a large version.
