“I ordered a ramp with a side of house.”-Ooti Billeaud
It took Ooti Billeaud five years to complete his BMX dream home in the the Bywater historic district of New Orleans but his now lives out his childhood dream daily. Initially Ooti wanted to build the ramp before beginning construction on the home but the city told him if he did they would confiscate his land so he built a small house and a big ole ramp. Awesome to see a dude incorporate his lifestyle into architecture and pull off something that he’s been dreaming about for 22 years. Cheers buddy!
“It’s surreal to accomplish a goal you’ve been directly working your ass off towards for 5 1/2 years and wanting for 22 years. I have this bad habit of grossly underestimating the amount of time, energy, and money it takes to do things in general. It’s almost like I get so psyched on whatever crazy ass idea that pops into my head that my subconscious keeps me from truly considering what’s involved.”
