A Home for Hosting

Building a house, and a family, one step at a time.

How can you create a home that’s more welcoming, more inviting, and more people will be blessed by entering?

On this site you’ll find how-to’s, stories, a build blog, and product and technique reviews on what we like, what we’d do differently, and what to avoid when building your own home.

BUT, we are already getting some pageviews despite not yet sharing it anywhere, so if you happen to stumble upon this site somehow, please check back later when we’ve got it all prim and proper!)

Front-Back of the house

Here's what we call the back and others call the front. Long deck with a porch swing and octagon, and some Polk Audio speakers pumping the tunage 🙂 On the left you can see a spruce tree. We had a company come and move some
