A shelter barely divides home sweet home from the outstanding terrane in Pinohuacho,Villarrica, Chile compliments of the slate patio-style flooring, flowing from the grand window right into the grasses outside. Guests can immerse themselves in the canopy ceiling held by the giant timber columns. Sitting here around the ring of fire our conversations become sincere; stories are told of the inhabitants of the area that fled to higher ground following the activity of the Villarrica volcano. Its smoke exists a shoot located directly above. This element is a bit eery as it serves a subliminal memorial to the steamy remnant in that very spot years prior. Constructed in the most unconventional ways, the structure was built by hand with humble practices to make up for lack of proper tools. For example, the table saw was spun into motion when rigged to a jacked up truck wheel then putting the petal to the metal. It is because of these inside notes that make you realize how special this unique design truly is. This project completed by the tremendous trio of GrupoTalca: Macarena Ávila, Martín del Solar, and Rodrigo Sheward.

Allison

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
