Nate Berkus began his project on Jerry's house before the December 2004 tsunami that claimed 150,000 lives, including Nate's partner, Fernando Bengoechea.
The project was put on hold due to the tragedy, but was finally finished four months after it began. "What I do is creative. I have to feel like I want to do it. I have to be excited about ideas and things like that and be able to process those," Nate explains. "So I did want to wait until I felt excited about it, and it feels great. It feels great being back doing what I love. It really does. My new normal, but it is part of my old normal. It's just moved forward."
