on architecture

this was my first piece of architecture. the front of the house dates from 1831, the porch and upstairs of the back of the house from 1900-ish, and the barn and connecting pieces from 2001. i was terrified to make that addition! i drew the plans and the elevations over and over and over again in petrified, obsessive panic. as it was being built, i spent hours going over every detail with the crew, and then when they were not there, by myself.

though there are things that i would do differently, it was an incredibly good learning experience, and i am proud of it.
