The other day Scott Waldie told me he can’t wait to delve into his basement clean-up. I’ve been to his house often and it is always evolving. “My kitchen is now much bigger than when you last visited,” he said. “I took down a wall and took part of another room to make the flow better.” How we live changes as we do.

I find no joy in this endeavor, even though current magazines tell us otherwise.
