Exterior: My wife and I designed and built our house, with the help of some good
friends, starting in 1988. We moved into the partially finished house
the next year, and have been working on finishing and furnishing it since
then. We built the kitchen one year, drawer fronts the next, and drawer
pulls the following year. My wife is a wonderful partner, participating
in every aspect, including hanging all 78 kitchen drawers. Building our
house is one of the highlights of my life.
