A couple of years ago we made a floor for our dining room – from a tree. We also put down a slate floor in the kitchen ourselves. And then we took apart a fire place and hauled bricks down the street to make a patio( we didn’t build the patio ourselves) . I couldn’t explain to anyone why we did it . But I just looked at a Ted Talk by Mike Rowe ( dirty jobs) about work. Meaning labour. And it explains things. There is a certain satisfaction in work. My dad has said this ( and done it ) . My Dh lives it. and I get it.
Watch him. He is entertaining and his conclusion are something my DH and I have been talking about.
