Focusing on the rebuilding of our home and our lives post fire.

Inspiration picture for the little hall way off the garage. Love the slate floor and the cubbies which include hooks for coats, drawers and shelving. I like the light colors which lead to an open feel.
We are rebuilding our house after losing it in a massive fire on November 17, 2007. It's been a difficult ordeal-- losing so much, being displaced and then dealing with the major nightmare of our insurance company... but this blog is an effort to focus on the future and the path we're taking to get there. It's an effort to focus on the positive-- that we are rebuilding, rebuilding a house that we never otherwise could have found-- a house according to our tastes exactly. I've vowed not to bring up insurance or banking headaches or even the multitude of heartaches of the past year plus, but instead to focus solely on the exciting (and sometimes frivolous) adventures in building a house. More importantly, having lost so much of our 'history'in the fire.... this is the beginning of a new story, the story of our new HOME....
