Happy Monday! Welcome to our new installment on our blog where you get to really meet our Firm Ground team. In the upcoming weeks you will get a little more in depth view of who we are. Each team member has been asked a series of questions and asked to provide a few photos. First up we have Jeff Schuler, Project Architect and Partner at Firm Ground.
1. What is your favorite thing about your career?
My favorite part is when we get to the end product of design when everyone can finally see what we have been talking about come to life. The most fulfilling part is when we get to the construction portion and we get to see something appear out of nothing and being able to collaborate with contractors to work through challenges to complete the project.
2. What is your proudest accomplishment?
Receiving my architecture license after 5 years of school, 4 years as an intern and seven 4-hour tests. It was the culmination of many years of my life working towards one goal.
3. What did you want to be when you were small?
4. If you could choose to do anything for a day, what would it be?
I love to drive and race cars. If I could do anything it would be driving a Ferrari through the alps with no speed limits.
5. What's the tallest building you've been to the top in?
As every architect finds themselves in their life the tallest building I have been to the top is the Empire State Building
6. Are you a clean or messy person?
I am clean at home and messy at work.
7. What's your favorite family recipe?
The running joke I have with my family is my favorite recipe “wacky cake” which is a chocolate cake without eggs, the more common name as “depression cake” because it was perfected during the great depression when they could not get eggs.
