A home for the holidays

After transforming the exterior of their home from its spooky state, complete with homemade Halloween décor, to its current status as an illuminated Christmas spectacle, Darrell and Ali Barrett are celebrating their 16th year of providing the Wrigley area with holiday cheer. “People come from all over to see what we are up to year after year,” said Darrell. “It is always different and puts a smile on everyone’s face.”
The couple’s decorating is all done by hand with recycled materials. “There are no blow-ups allowed here,” says Darrell. “We use discarded lumber from construction sites, Styrofoam from produce/fish departments at grocery stores, left-over PVC pipe from our landscape jobs, and lumber wrap from the trash bins at home-improvement stores. We make every effort so that our displays show well in the daytime as well as at night with the lights on.”
