My father-in-law can build a house from scratch -- I cannot. I can code, photograph and grow my own food but anything resembling construction, be it from wood or Legos, pushes me into uncomfortable territory. Possessing the skill to build a house, and one that will remain standing, is just damn impressive to me. I once built a table which didn't stand so well; Chuck and I burned it the following New Year's lacking firewood. I have a rich history of failed woodworking attempts.
