The theme of our home tour this year is handcrafted. What does handcrafted mean? We hear it all the time with the popularity of such things as handcrafted beers. A handicraft is defined as any kind of craft that can be made using one's hands or simple tools. At a time when the economy might not be doing well, you will find resurgence in things that are homemade; people want to get back to simpler things, while remembering what is important to us. But what does it mean to us here in a historical neighborhood?
This year we are focusing on houses built in the 1920's, a time in construction when brick and plaster were used instead of siding and drywall. A time when it was a craft or an art to construct a true home. A time when built-in elements were a part of the plans and not an afterthought. We believe when combined with the inspiring and creative artists in our neighborhood we start to see what we mean by handcrafted.
Check out last year's tour so you can see why we are so excited for our 26th Annual Home Tour.
