Birth, nuclear, or chosen family, empty nesters, multi-generational, newlyweds, or on your own, home can become a haven for love, warmth, stability, inspiration, and deep connection. And it’s complicated. Home means something different to everyone.

Mark Twain writes about his home, Hartford Mansion:

“To us, our house was not un-sentient matter – it had a heart, and a soul, and eyes to see us with; and approvals and solicitudes and deep sympathies; it was of us, and we were in its confidence, and lived in its grace and in the peace of its benediction.”

Habitat for Humanity homeowners describe what home represents:

“Home means a future. Once we had a stable home, we could think beyond where we were going to live from week to week, and we could begin to look ahead to where we wanted to go. Home is the base where everything begins.”

— Kelly

“I think that home is simply wherever you’re surrounded by people who love you.”

— Mary Kate

“Home means a new chapter in my family’s lives, a fresh new start, safety, security, unity.”

— Betty

Poet John Howard Payne’s “Home, Sweet Home”:

“Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam,
Be it ever so humble there’s no place like home!
A charm from the skies seems to hallow us there,
Which, seek through the world, is ne’er met with elsewhere: Home!”

Simon and Garfunkel’s lyrics for “Homeward Bound”:

“…Homeward boundI wish I wasHomeward boundHome where my thought’s escapin’Home where my music’s playin’Home where my love lies waitin’Silently for me…”

A place and a feeling, what does “home” mean for you?

Has its purpose changed? We love helping people who want their lifestyle, personality, and desires woven into their remodel. But also want drawers that glide, beautiful finishes, the best fridge, and fresh paint!
