Inspired by the craft of building and architecture

A little bit of everything. Three American classics. The quaint and modest shingle style home, a swimming pool and a travel trailer. All of three of these showcased together may come across basic or boring yet they're very distinct dropped here on this beach site.
A modern vibe on the interior leads to both a traditional and retro spin on the outside. Balance and simplicity throughout displaying some genius creativity. Check the classic Airstream. It's an icon no doubt and here it's purpose is multifunctional serving as the pool house or overflow for visitors. And putting themselves out there a little further with their design they drop an above ground pool on site. A modern twist clad in white Corian.
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.
