Guest Bath Rescue
Project of the Month


A leaking shower led to a complete 3rd floor bathroom renovation in a 1906 Montclair home. Custom details give this bath a ton of quirky personality and vintage Craftsman style..
Hybrids
Green Design & Mindful Living
I am thrilled with my new car, a Kia Niro which I found to be the best value hybrid. A full tank drives for 541 miles and I've been averaging between 45 - 50 MPG. My best trip so far was 54.8. Also very comfortable and fun to drive!
Adorable goats + adaptive reuse
Inspiration
Camp North End in Charlotte, NC, a 76-acre historic industrial site once used to produce Model Ts and Army missiles, now serves as a hub for innovation. One small example of out of the box thinking: instead of spraying toxic pesticides, goats were brought in to eat the invasive kudzu. Offerings include Food Truck Fridays, live music, community meeting space, small office space for creative makers, Saturday morning Market and much more. Follow them on Facebook or Instagram and explore their website for some major inspiration of what mindful community planning can achieve. Shout out to Varian Shrum (my niece), Community Manager who has been on the ground from the beginning.
