I have this memory that I love of my grandfather sitting in a white plastic chair in the midst of the construction at what will become his new home, observing the structures as they form around him. He is considering all the time, perfecting the small luxuries that will make up his everyday in the life that he dreams will be his there.
Now Matt and I are embarking on our 2nd home remodel together and this one isn’t meant to be temporary. I’m going to have to get myself one of those white plastic chairs, you’d know the one if you saw it. Building a home is such a joy to me, as it is to my Gramps. I love considering all of the options and challenges and finding solutions that will be not only an end to a means, but also daily pleasures… window placed to guide the breeze and the exact measurements in the master vanity so our giant mirror can always be there to remind of days when we needed any help we could get in enlarging the living room of our first 1,000 square foot home.
