The Workshop of Model Maker Adam Savage @ WSJ.com…

Last June,Adam Savage and his wife, Julia Ward, fell in love with a four-bedroom, Edwardian house on a quiet street in the eclectic Mission district. But before he could close on it, Mr. Savage had to build it.

Build a model, that is. Borrowing blueprints from their real-estate agent, he constructed a replica out of white foam-core in half dollhouse scale, even making little models of himself and Ms. Ward from cut-outs of photographs and mounted like game pieces. “I built it so we could obsess over it,” Mr. Savage said on a recent Saturday, wearing orange-and red-striped socks that played off his signature red hair.
