My wife Karen and I have 3 three children and 9 grandchildren. We love New England architecture and a good project. Buttonwood is our fourth colonial restoration. Places we like: Paris, New York, Boston, Nantucket and Savannah. Things she likes: the kids, working on the flower beds, reading, knitting, house projects. Things I like: classic european cars, sailing, house projects, the kids and seeing Ms. Karen's happy face. A nice warm fire with good conversation, a little Jim Beam, a glass of Pinot Grigio for the lady. It just does not get any better !
