I often get asked why I do so much work to a house I will eventually sell – a home I live in for a while instead of a forever home. Why take the time to do projects that will never provide a return of investment? I never had a good answer until I spent a day wandering around a strangers house, seeing their objects for sale.
I work on my home because I love. I love my family and want them to live in a nice home. I can’t afford to hire someone to create home I have in my head, so I have to do it myself. There’s accomplishment and problem solving and meeting a challenge and all of that crap, but at the bottom of that is love. And that love is the color of wood.
Beyond love is the knowledge that I can turn this
That I can climb the stairs a thousand times
That I can hammer in a hundred brad nails old school
That I can make the space we (my family & I ) live in a place we want to come home to.
In other words, I do it because I want to.
Because I have to.
Because I can.
And you can too.Why do you work on your home?
