FIRST LOVE

This is where my love for homes began

Ever since I was a kid, I had this romantic notion of rebuilding an old house.  There is really not a point in showing these photos.  This is not a showcase of skills or anything like that, only to emphasize my love for homes.

The last photos are from some of the developments I worked on as a project manager in the construction industry.  I worked for CBL, one of the largest retail developers in the country. 

This was the house shortly after I bought it.  It had been in need of a new roof for several decades and had major termite damage.  The bank  and the city wanted it torn down.

I made the built-in cabinets from a hickory tree that had to be cut down in the yard.  I love the smell of hickory but boy is it hard to work with!
