When our residential home project wasn't able to get financing we started looking for solutions to bringing costs down. One of our ideas to get more space was to put up an out building. We looked into prefab units, but found we could build cheaper or equal to everything out there. In particular, we found you can have a custom steel frame (think pole barn) structure manufactured and shipped to us rather inexpensively. The the steel frame gives exceptional strength for wind and roof loads (great for Michigan snow) and provides a surface for mounting both interior and exterior walls. Another bonus is being able to use concrete on a second floor and flattening a roof pitch down to 12 : 1/2.

Some of the features of this plan include:

Guest Bedroom
Full Bathroom
Lofted Office
Spray Foam Insulated
Radiant Heated Floors

The steel frame building comes with all of the window and door holes cut out and goes together like a giant erector set. The frame is then clad in 24-26 gauge corrugated steel sheets. We planned to cover the steel in 4' x 8' sheets of smooth cement board paired with aluminum channel trim. Building costs, including finishing the inside with dray, came in around $80 sq/ft.

Concrete Tower Mandy

Concrete Tower Mandy

Mandy fearlessly scales the landmark tower at Concrete, Washington.

Concrete was the first stop and the first shoot of our 212-mile epic shoot. I had planned for Concrete to be just the "warm up." I was expecting to shoot some restrained, awkward shots -- just some practice to break the ice. I was planning for the photos at Concrete to be stiff and useless.

But Mandy had other plans.

She blew me away, hitting striking, visually dynamic poses over and over. Several times I was just about to ask her to do something for the camera when she did it as a I thought it, before I even got to ask. Amazing.

And then she started climbing up the tower. Wow. I was floored.

We could have just shot at Concrete and then turned around and gone home and I would have been extremely happy with the shoot.

But, as you can see from the shots we later took at the Diablo Lake Overlook, it's a good thing we kept going.

I can not -- freaking -- wait to shoot with Mandy again.
