Friends,

Here at Zyl Vardos I spend my time designing and building small structures, studios, and modular art structures. These begin as a pencil sketch, then become a model, and finally a fully-developed design containing thousands of rendered parts. This is very difficult work, but I have an immeasurable amount of fun doing it. Indeed, this is what keeps me going at the end of the day.

I founded Zyl Vardos in 2008 after having built a wide variety of structures since 1994. I have been in the building trades for well over 20 years. My workshop is in my hometown of Olympia, WA, USA. From the start, I worked hard to make it a place where creativity and reality become one. Now, it has become a place unlike any other in the world. Here, we can create all the elements of a project: windows, metalwork, doors, cabinetry, and other fittings.

I created the structures you see on this site with the support and encouragement of people like you. And I could never do this difficult work without the amazing carpenters/thinkers that are with me every day. 

If you keep dreaming, I'll keep building. 

Cheers!

Abel Zimmerman Zyl - Founder/Owner/Engineer

Here I am, at my mini-office called the 'Squirrel Hut.' I am likely on the phone with a sheet metal supplier... or maybe I am ordering donuts?
