Sometimes people ask if I have a day job. The answer is, “not really, but sometimes I renovate houses.”

My wife, Tracy, and I have done major remodeling work in Conifer, CO, and Roxbury, MA, and now we’ve taken on the challenge of an 1890s Victorian in Medford, MA. Over the past three years, we’ve added a new master suite, gutted and remodeled another bathroom, re-sided and repainted the entire exterior, and undertaken many other projects. (Sometimes, I think this house is more popular on Facebook than I am.) This project gives me an excuse to collect power tools.
