my son's room

Here is my son's room, all grown up, graduated from college
and home~ a wonderful son. Yes, we are Celtics fans.
You never know where you are going to find barn doors
as I just had these made for his closet doors.

I designed these months ago and they were recently installed.
New wood~old hinges.

Guess I have had barns on my mind for a while!

please enjoy- love you Doyle.

Federal Style

My home
The Brayton Homestead
is dressed for Independence day in
the Federal period Style (circa 1796)
The Homestead's grounds actually saw battle
along the Taunton River here in Massachusetts, New England.
In the truest spirit of Red White and Blue, I wish you the happiest of holiday weekends.
Happy Fourth Of July!
