Thanks for the email. I can’t wait to hear or see your photo journal from your trip.
Sorry for the crazy spam type letter—I don’t usually forward those things but that one hit a soft spot in me.
We got a remodeling permit and are ready to submit a set of plans for a full restoration of the property.
Do you have time to put a note on Modern Phoenix regarding a request for critiques? Heather is flying in to help brainstorm next week before submitting to the city—end result if I am on the wrong page or missed the target I will not submit.
I did not want to bother you or anyone until I had a full plan to show and compare apples to apples.
I have all of the engineering for the cantilevers, structural, civil, etc. However I need the Beadle knowledge base to look it over and give some input. I wish I had given you more of a heads up but Heather was able to wangle some free time this week. The most important factor needed at this point is the Modern Phoenix Brain Trust for input and comments regarding the plans. If this is at all possible I could do a get together at my house which is at 12th Street and Osborn. Or if anyone comes forward I will make myself available anytime night or day from Monday until Thursday and Friday if necessary (Heather is leaving on Friday.)
I did go to court and we prevailed (it was a bit scary and I was freaked that I might mess up) fortunately the two citations were removed. I think Al Beadle has taken residence in my soul somehow—now I know I am sounding like a nut but it is true—this thing is definitely bigger than life at least in my mind.
I spoke with Jason the artist and he is going to get together with us and let us use his picture in post card size to kind of help get neighborhood good faith. I really do not want to have a war up there and I do believe that in the end everyone will and or should be happy to have probably one of the best examples of a part of our history preserve.
If this request is out of line I understand—just let me know.
Love you and take care.
