Don’t miss this New York Times article about a teenager’s determination to find a way to build his family’s custom residence in Princeton, New Jersey. It’s an interesting story.

He suggested that his family commission an architect to build the house of their dreams. His parents, though skeptical, told him they would look into it if he set up the meetings.
