Think you'd have the stamina at age 92 to paint a trompe l'oeil pattern on your patio? How about the confidence to build your dream kitchen...over an indoor swimming pool? Well, TOH readers Alan Schackner and David McKenney certainly did! And for that, they, along with five other extraordinary homeowners, take top prizes in this, our second annual Moxie Awards. Their steely nerves and unflagging perseverance left us awestruck—and, more important, earned them a place here so that you, too, can be inspired by their stories.
