Our New Year’s Resolutions

For the last day of 2014, the members of Forge Craft decided to share their New Year’s resolutions for 2015.

Scott Ginder: to go to the gym three days a week, and on time

Rommel Sulit: “I’d like to start a gluten-free diet.”

Erica Quinones: to embrace princesses, clean the car more often, and travel more

Carrie Gammell: “I’m going the distance.” *Cake’s ‘Going The Distance’ plays in the background

Jason Kerensky: “I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions.”

Maria Valdes: to stop drinking soda, and play the piano again

Jon Hagar: to stop smoking

Happy New Year’s everyone! See you in 2015!


Happy Birthday, Jon!

Last night, the Forge Craft group eagerly celebrated Jon Hagar’s birthday at Flour & Vine. Happy Birthday, Jon!

Jon's B-Day

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!

As the week of Christmas draws closer, the Forge Craft team would like to thank everyone who passed along their holiday cheer to brighten our office with beautiful cards and treats. Thank you for all your warm wishes!


Forge Craft’s 1st Annual Holiday Party!

Memories were made and fun was had by all during Forge Craft’s first annual Holiday Party this past Saturday. The Forge Craft family convened at La Condesa‘s Flour Room, which was originally used as part of a brewery in the 1860s, to share in an amazing dinner followed by a white elephant “book” exchange. We are so thankful for everyone’s hard work and dedication and look forward to another wonderful year in 2015.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!




Coming Along!


Construction on Peidra Toro is coming along during a rainy morning in December. The scaffolding is shown above and the retaining wall is ready to be poured. We can’t wait to see it come to life in the next couple of months!

On the Boards: Avalon

Forge Craft Architecture + Design is excited to announce its newest residential project – Avalon. The home is currently undergoing its final phases of design and will be breaking ground in early 2015.


Move In Begins for Capital Studios

Move-in begins for Capital Studios this week! Each new resident to Capital Studios will receive a ‘Welcome Home’ basket filled with household essentials. Foundation Communities would like to give a big “THANK YOU” to Central Presbyterian Church of Austin, First Baptist Church of Austin, and University United Methodist Church for their help transporting all 135 baskets – great work everyone!
