Listening to Debra talk about some of her recent projects, I asked her to do another “Why Design Matters” post. As usual, my comments will be in italics. Here it is:
I’ve done a couple of consultations recently that really made me happy and I’d love to share them with you:
I finished an exterior color consultation last week for a dear friend. She bought her darling little place 16 years ago and she has done a ton of work over the years … but she’s never been happy with the brick.
I mentioned in the last post that, by the time you read it, the SoMoToHo would be on the market. It’s now under contract. Debra and I are so grateful to have had the opportunity to transform this home into something beautiful – like a caterpillar into a butterfly (couldn’t resist the chrysalis reference). And we really appreciate that you joined us in the adventure!
So. As promised, here are some before and after pics. I’m limiting this post to the exterior. In the next post, I’ll move to the interior. It may take a couple of posts to finish with the before and afters.
Many thanks to Trey Freeze for his wonderful camera work.
In the last post, I mentioned that we were going to have some professional pictures taken of the LOAP Alpha. As you know, we typically have Trey Freeze do our professional shots. Trey was too busy (as many truly talented people are) to take the Alpha pics on the schedule that we needed, so we asked Matrix Tours to do the job. And a fine job they did. So here they are – let me know what you think! And, if you’re in the market for a spectacularly renovated 3/2/2 in west Fort Worth for an eminently reasonable price, give us a shout. We’d be tickled for this to be your new home!
That’s it for the LOAP Alpha. Thanks for going through this transition with us. It’s been fun – and gratifying. This home has lots of pleasure to give – it just had to be coaxed out of hiding. Soon, we’ll do another LOAP – since Limitless Opportunities are Always Present!
Next, though, we’ll go back to the SoMoToHo, where things are hap-pen-ing. Hope you’ll come along!
Posts – the structural kind – are ubiquitous. They serve all kinds of purposes – often vertical support or lateral support or both. Or to function as light stands, like the one on a bridge in Amsterdam shown above. (The crown also tells you something about the ownership of the property where it’s located.)
