When I was twenty-six my parents bought a Victorian fixer-upper on Cape Cod. My life and my sisters life had spun out of control. We converged around this house as we began to ask why. All of us dug deep as all the major systems in the house were replaced, the house lifted, and a new foundation poured.
At the time I don’t think any of us realized all the internal work we were doing was mirrored in this huge renovation project. All of our lives changed profoundly as the house was slowly transformed into a bed and breakfast.
