I am sure many other folks have thought about this when they got their house. I am a truck driver and I am limited mostly on time. but i am for the first time in my life venturing out to do something that i have wanted to do for many years.

This past Sunday, 12/11/16 I met with my parents about a house that i have loved since I was 10 years old. As a kid we moved in next door to this old man that would quickly become one of my closest childhood friends. The man that showed me how wonderful and amazing it could be to create something from a small piece of wood. He is probably also the reason i have such a facination with small boxes and other odd containers. That is what he loved to create himself and was always showing me new things ideas and little techniques.

A gentleman bought the house after he passed away, and then several years ago my parents bought it from him when he married and wanted to move. When my parents have decided to move closer to my sister. I began to think maybe it was time that I took the house and created the home of my dreams for myself. I have been adrift since my second divorce and at the thought of this house being mine I decided it was time for me to Be More.

As it is I would like to share my Journey creating my home as I knock down tear out rebuild and in some areas build from the ground up. I hope that my journey will transform and inspire someone else to do what they have been dreaming about and have not done yet.

My blog postings will be about once a month when i am home and i will discuss what I did to the house each time i am home. I plan on attaching photos, if not here then they will be in projects.

To all my fellow wood lovers out there, remember to always Follow your heart when you are creating.
