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

Here's a photo I found of a dark brick color door with ORB hardware. I think it works. we have time to decide on the color of the front door. M is leaning towards a red, so I'm trying to find photos.... I'm actually leaning towards white-- same as the house-- for a really clean/simple look that'll make the hardware pop. but this red i could clearly live with.
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....
