Stage:    Completion    |    Week 60

Story: Yesterday we threw a party for all of the hard-working, dedicated people that built our home. So many people came and filled the house with joy and pride. Today our home is complete.

The party was an expression of our gratitude for the effort and care that so many people gave. To honor them all, we put together a short video of the images we made during construction. After a few hours of celebration, everyone crowded into our living room, a speech was made and the video played.

As the music chimed on and the pictures dissolved one in to another, smiles and laughter subsided and the room became silent. Fifty people softened to their own quiet thoughts about what we have all accomplished together. A lady I hardly know stood next to me and slowly wiped tears from her eyes. I cried too.

So for those of you not able to be there, we want you to know that you were missed and we thank you too. Please, watch the video and enjoy...

We hope that this will always remind us of what a privilege it was to have Graham and his dedicated trades build our home. When we started all of this, we had no idea how lucky we were to have chosen Graham. Thank you Graham...for being a friend.


Due to popular request, here is a picture of our home taken under the stars the night before the party.
