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

They put some beautiful molding around our garage door today, installed the weatherstripping and a keypad. It finishes it off so nicely.
... and here's our deck in progress.
What's so amazing about this product is these little caps that go over the nail heads so they all but disappear.
Tomorrow Greg is coming to regrade our property, deliver a bunch of topsoil and build in the drainage. He'll wait to seed and hay until the soil warms a bit more, but we may start seeing some basic landscaping on Saturday. Meanwhile.. I've got my own gardening plan in the works.
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....
