I am interrested in attending one of the upcoming projects that you are going to do. I would be coming from the West, from Idaho. Can someone give me some tips on where I would want to stay? Keep in mind that I would want a hotel that is easily accessible to the worksite, easily accessible to anything else that would be beneficial to my Verticle Carving learning, good rates (to help keep the cost reasonable for the trip), scheduling of the jobs (when are they scheduled to begin and complete), etc. Any info you can give me would be helpful and appreciated!
Thank you, Dion

Whaddya say we coordinate and share a room and rental car to additionally keep costs down? (maybe super8 has a two room special?)

Ok Guys,
I have a project coming up in Naperville IL. It is a wine room bar area inside of a business. These guys want to feature my work because they have a lot of clients that remodel their homes. The target market for these cellars is between 25,000 and 125,000 USD so we have a really good range. The builder I work with has already created a new company called GenuWINE Grottos and he wants to build all over the Chicago land area. He builds 2 - 8 million dollar homes currently and has told me that each of him homes he wants a 100k wine room.
That means good times for us. So this first project may be a public one, but its a good one.
I hope that we can start in 3 - 4 weeks I will keep you posted. I have to finish up a Fire Place first in a northern community so I'm looking at around the end of April.

So is anyone interested. We can begin to plan the event.

By the way, this will probably take a couple of weeks so I may structure it for all the action to take place in a certain time frame or a series of time frames..
