thanks for the responses guys. I accepted the residential architecture job and I start tomorrow but I would still love to someday get my hands on fabricating parts for cool installations like the other company builds.
now that I think about it I don't think I'd like to work for a company like that if the principal is not cool. so maybe I'll just collaborate with my friends and do our own side projects similar to the other company's works. I know we are capable of putting together complex builds.
On the brighter side of things. the architect who interview me last Friday and his main worker loves watching top gear UK. hafway through the interview we ended up talking about top gear UK. haha. And I think I'll have fun in there being a big fan of Flight of the Conchords and the architect being from New Zealand.
thanks again everyone! appreciate the feedback.
anyway, here is a sample of what I like building.
