Its sometimes a strange feeling when you hand over a project to a client – especially one as all-consuming as Monachyle Beag. I never got blasé about it, I never got tired of the views from it and I never got bored of the endless obstacles we had to navigate. However now it is finally drawing to close and the building will start its new life as a place for the owners to enjoy it’s a precious moment for me to pause for breath and look back over the three years from the first moment the client stood on a rock on a mountainside and proclaimed he wanted his new hunting lodge right there. I’ll soon enough be engulfed in another project (i.e tomorrow!) and be solving a whole other set of problems but for now it’s the most rewarding part of this job – to sit back and enjoy what you’ve created for a fleeting moment before the band starts playing again.
