the house on roses road

How do you tell the story of a house? I’m familiar with telling the story of a couple, their wedding day, of people. But, a house? It has no feelings. It’s brick and mortar. What story can an inanimate structure tell?

That was my challenge when asked to produce a piece for a family who was going to say goodbye to the home in which they’d spent the last 25+ years of their lives. I thought back to the home I grew up in and it dawned on me, it wasn’t about the building as much as it was about the people and what happened within its walls.

Here’s the story of the house on Roses Road.

Thank you familia Mansfield for allowing me into your home.
