The House of Steam Logo Art By Steve Mannion

Hello All

Well by July 20th 2007 The House of Steam will be One Year Old!!

The archive currently has over 170 entries spread across 400 searchable categories.

In order to celebrate our accomplishment I have assembled a Year One Celebration video.

I would like to thank Sophie for all her help and support with the archive.

I would like to thank all the people I have been in contact with (especially via email) who have contributed photos, stories and most importanty time.

To me The House of Steam is an open ended community driven archive. What it does and where it goes is up to you so keep contributing. It is only a matter of time before The House of Steam becomes an important peice of skate history. It is not if it is when. I recall something sprayed on the outside wall of The Barn after it was all closed up, it said…The Time is Now.

so true.

    June 20th, 2007 at 8:14 am eI still see those guys around. Pep Williams has always been one of my favorite pro skaters since I was a small kid and that was 20 years ago. I am 30 now.
    I ran into him in Hollywood at a party last month. It was really cool meeting him.I was talking about getting a skateboard to start back skating again.Pep said come to my car.This guy gave me his complete skateboard and shirts and stickers for my kids for free.We only talked 5 min and he gave me a complete skateboard.I couldn’t believe it. All he said was “Enjoy” and cruised back into the party like nothing happened.I was speechless. That just made my year.
    I am skating again. Not as good as I use to but I am cruising and carving all over my local skatepark.J ust want to say thanks you so much Pep Williams for bringing skateboarding back to my life. I am forever thankful.

SO this is what Sean wrote on the site and I took it upon myself to test Pep Williams coolness and lordy, lordy…He Is cool as they come.


How’s everything?Checked out your site.Its really cool.Here are a few pics and a small interview. The Pics in black and white are from 89 and Photos were taken by Bagel. Except for the G-turn.That was in 88 taken by Cody Cassiero. Thrasher Cover was May 91 and the Argonaught cover was last year.Its crazy because I can still kill wallrides.Hope all is well bro.Hit me up anytime
