Ty & Rae's St. Augustine Surf Shack

Right around the time that Rachel and I packed up and moved Yield from San Francisco to St. Augustine, Ty Williams was making his way from Los Angeles to build a house in St. Augustine's historic Lincolnville district. Even though Ty and I had some overlapping time at Flagler College, we didn't get to know each other until having a parallel experience of resettling in St. Augustine after years in California.

Ty is an artist and illustrator. Even if you don't recognize Ty's name, chances are you have a mutual friend somewhere in the world, and you've probably seen his collaborations with companies like Patagonia, Kaufmann Mercantile, Public Supply and others. When they're not traveling or taking extended stays back in Maine, Ty and his girlfriend Rae Wilson share the blue bungalow and play host to many guests.
