The choices you make with your timber framing package choice will significantly impact the look and feel of your home, pavilion, recreation center, storefront, or whatever your project may be.
Feng Shui is an easy target for ridicule, but its principles are universal with good planning and design.
In this video we learn:
1. How to recognize phony design gobbledygook, which can lead you astray from getting a look and feel that delights for decades.
2. How to blend these universal truths regarding aesthetics, energy, harmony, magnetism, etc. with your style preferences.
While there are service charlatans intentionally mixing universal truths with their gobbledygook, I believe most phony design jargon comes from well-intentioned incompetence, as depicted with consultant Bob.
In Bob’s case, he appeared to lack experience and mastery.
A master, however, is not free from mistakes, uttering design gobbledygook or missing the audience.
A master is both humble and aware. A master knows that many bad ideas, themes, and even missed communication are an inherent part of the process and eventually lead to reasonable solutions.
A master uses intuition and brute force- intuition for creativity and applying sound design principles and brute force to doggedly keep proposing ideas until balance is reached.
Masters also can step back and “see the forest.”
They can help with the selection of suitable solutions and options. A master is not afraid of mistakes and serves as an insightful guide. They also know when to stop.
