In February of 2016, my wife (eight months pregnant with our first) and I moved into our dream home. Mind you, some dreams require considerable effort to fully comprehend. This dream sat waiting 8 vacant years for us. That Fall we invited family, friends and neighbors over before we began the mile long list of projects.

As each of the nearly 300 curious people walked through our front door and comfortably found a space to converse, we slowly began to understand the full scope of our rather sizable undertaking.
