The house is located on the banks of the Hudson River, which is handy for canoing and so on. This picture is taken from the back porch which overlooks the backyard and the river. When not working (see above) or playing with the cats, I am frequently involved in projects around the house. One recent project was to convert a single pipe steam system to a forced hot water radiant heating system. I also dabble in woodworking. One of my recent projects is a buffet that I built for my mother.
