Life and Death
It's very hard to know how to proceed with this blog given all that has happened, but I know it's been nearly 8 months since I last entered anything and I have a feeling I'll be better for it. On October 19th 2012, our beautiful son Leroy died at age 7 months. This followed a life where few of the things that I take for granted for myself were available to Leroy and that is a life that's hard to imagine. Throughout his life we dedicated ourselves to Leroy, doing everything we could manage and think of, and then some, to improve his existence. In the end however, even though we found ourselves surrounded by love and support, the road for Leroy had become too hard.This blog is about house building, not our children, but the whole reason we built a house was to have a home and a family. It was designed very specifically for that purpose and it's hard to stay motivated sometimes with that in mind. But we are also dedicated to making a difference to people and to the sustainability of our delicate planet so I'll do my best to bring this blog up to date so that it can resume normal service. Before we get there we need to go back many months and retrospectively visit the subject of a ceiling. That's the subject of my next blog.
