This is my second project with sonu and was damn good fun. It was a small project involving a complete design of a small room which was to have a bed, a study, a small library and a cupboard. Both me & sonu relished the process of designing for this project, drawing, sketching & getting it done...the basics...nothing big, but the point is, i realised that i hadn't done this kind of designing since a long time...had that particular feeling of personal satisfaction that one gets when you are at your board doing a project that is yours and yours alone, i don't know whether its the same for everyone who passes B.Arch... Besides the design and making of the project, the long travel from Andheri/ Borivali all the way to Wadala and back, fighting with the carpenter and client, late dinners and material exploration was also good fun.
