A groom carries his bride across the threshold. An explorer steps from what is known into the unknown, crossing a threshold. A couple jumps the broom when they marry, if they are of a certain heritage. Or they stomp on a glass.When you graduate, you flip your mortar board tassel from one side to the other ti indicate the completion of a journey and the beginning of a new adventure. Much is the same with this home. When the footers were placed and the stem walls were set I marked the threshold. This is embedded in the home’s foundation, its existence known only to my heart and these archives. There are similar memorials layered throughout the construction that I will share along the way s I share how this house was built and how I continue to embellish upon the dream.
