il vecchio is a restaurant I built and designed in Pacific Grove, California, in 2011. It is over 2,000 square feet and built with ninety-five percent recycled and salvaged materials that I gathered from all across the country. I spent seven months in CA, living there and building seven days a week, using the materials collected from Brooklyn NY, Virginia, Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, and California. This restaurant was essentially the beginning of my blog, career, and love for building furniture.
