The layers were revealed to me with pride: the wainscoting, chair-rail, the new counter tops and even a miniature door for the tooth-fairy to visit. The best part, other than the aesthetic beauty? With each layer came a story from a moment in time for the home owner. We were told about the day when that new layer appeared and why. Seriously, like the rings of a tree, this home was a chronological landmark for the growth of a family. So yea, listing your home is a big BIG deal to me.
