In one of the chil­dren’s bed­rooms, re­claimed wood that Rob­bie tore down board by board from a rel­a­tive’s barn adds a touch of nos­tal­gia. He in­stalled black fab­ric be­hind the plank­ing, hid­ing the dry­wall un­der­neath. Sab­rina found the flag at a road­side sale for $1. “I love that it’s tat­tered,” she says. “Rob­bie served in the Na­tional Guard for 32 years in places like Iraq, Bos­nia and New Or­leans af­ter Hur­ri­cane Ka­t­rina. To me, it sym­bol­izes his war-torn pa­tri­o­tism.”
