Our home was built in 1926 by Joe's great-grandfather, William Harmon. Our children are the fourth generation to live in this house and the ninth generation to live in our town, Madison, New Hampshire. When our home was built it was done by hand, with so much love. You can feel it the moment you walk in. No power tools were used to build our home.
We have a historical society on our street. A large part of it is dedicated to the Harmon family (our family). We visited recently so I could show the kids the very tools used to build our home. They are so proud that our home is such a historic landmark in our town and that they are part of history.
Here are some photos of the very tools used to build our house. How amazing to see them and know that they were used as an extension of the love that William Harmon had for his family.
