Artist and craftsman Shannon O'Hare leads a community of steampunk artists who have brought their outsized projects - and dreams of rejuvenation - to the abandoned buildings of beleaguered Vallejo. Behind O'Hare at his Vallejo studio, Obtainium Works, is the Neverwas Haul, a Jules Verne-inspired, collapsible, self-propelled three-story Victorian house on wheels.
