Inspired by the craft of building and architecture

A true stone fireplace. A classic. A timeless design element that doesn't overpower the room. Best displayed when it's just left alone to age. Another gem here in this place are the floors. Original, raw pine in random widths. Once again proud to show their age.
A quick shot of the exterior showing the craftsmanship of the stone work that was carried inside for the fireplace facing.
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.
