Quotes from Erin and Ben Napier

"We grew up outside covered in mosquito bites, climbing magnolia trees, digging in the dirt and that's what I want for them." - Erin Napier

Right, that's the thing is we can call a house our forever home, but it's only forever for us. It's not forever for the house. -Erin Napier

"They did such a good job of honoring that craftsmanship and continuing the story of that house and that we wanted to then do the same thing, you know, live in it and love it as well as those two families." - Ben Napier
