Labor of Love - Sammy Makes Six

Labor of Love

Guest post from: Kent Lara

I love this old house but it’s been a labor of love, I tell you what. I think it’s amazing there used to be so much craftsmanship and care that went into building a house but all that character turns into me having to work extra hard to find the right pieces this day and age. I’m getting a lot of joy out of making this place whole again though and I feel good about being able to use my hands to make something tangible. I recently got hughes net at the house and that’s been helpful in looking up period experts an finding extra parts and whatnot. I know it sounds silly but it can take me hours just to find the right glass doorknob and I know it’s going to take me years just to get all these windows replaced the right way. I think it’s going to be a challenge but it’s one I’m totally up for and I know that soon enough I’ll be enjoying my completed dream house!
