Hello fellow house lovers. After many years of dedicating my life to real estate, I wanted to take the best of what I have done and turn it into something creative. It runs in the family, with both my sons being born during historic restorations and running the construction job site right up to the delivery of my first!
I began my career as a commercial real estate economist by day and historic house renovator by night. I have been a General Contractor and developer to the amazement of many. Gone on to big deals and bigger projects. But my passion has always been historic homes.
As I walk through an old house my hands instinctively touch the stair railings, listen to my footsteps echo on the hardwood floors and raise my eyes up to the crown molding. After all, it’s the details in houses, just as in life, that are important.
I’ve not only renovated historic houses, but have built new “old” houses in designated historic districts. This means that all designs must be approved by a governing body that will determine how well your plans blend with the architecture of the neighborhood.
Now with decades of experience transforming homes (and plenty of mistakes too!) I’ve come full circle to what I really love: the history inside those homes. After all, it’s the people who make a house’s history special. Their lives, their families and the events of the times past that weave intricate stories over time making the tapestry of life.
I hope you enjoy the articles and find a sense of peace in viewing the pictures. Life is too short to not find moments to gaze at beauty.
Please feel free to ask any questions you might have or just drop me a line to tell me about your adventures in houses!
