The pieces are made of wood, metal gears, old prescription bottles and the odd View-Master—a camera-like toy that displays images through the viewfinder. The house’s wrap-around porch doubles as an outdoor studio. Stacked next to a workbench are drawers filled with nuts and bolts and buckets overflowing with scraps of old wood and miscellaneous junk—an old xylophone, a small television. Behind the work area, a stained glass window hangs from the roof.
