Your Own Details
I like the idea of trying to incorporate any kind of detail, large or small, that can make a place your own. This is a custom built home on Martha's Vineyard where the family drew upon memories from past trips to a nearby rental.
A rustic and rugged feel to the back porch with the exposed rafter tails and tree trunk posts.
The family has a love of fishing and that's what caught my attention in the details. The architect designed the rafter tails to depict a fish head. Little details that families can share for generations.
I'm a 3rd generation home builder and remodeler in Birmingham, Michigan. I have a passion for the way things were back when we started Capaldi Building in 1945. Back when homes were literally built from scratch and guys ate homemade sandwiches out of tin lunch pails. The art and craft of building is something that inspires me every day. I hope that this blog inspires more people to take pride in the space they call home.
