I developed this site for a friend/relative. I've built it to interface with WP. The portfolio is ran by a custom WP plugin and is manageable through the WP interface along with the static text wich is served up by text files that he can change through the template/file editing page in WordPress. He'll probably start blogging this summer and it will be a matter of just whipping up a stylesheet and adding a link to the menu.
I love how easy it is to make these plug-ins. WP is worth a hefty donation.
