Ha ~ This one totally cracked me up. You know how in my last post, I talked about the elusive masterpieces tucked away on gracious Atlantan Lots. Architectural gems that are hidden all around town. Beautifully sculpted dream homes with magnificent detailing designed by abundantly talented artisans. Well, I’ve been intrigued with this one from the road for some time now. You’d think that … Read More What a Trip
Welcome to Grand Ol’ Atlanta. There’s no other place like it. 75 to 100 years ago, the outlining boundary of the city was acre after acre of rolling country side. Gentleman farms for the families of the business tycoons who pioneered this burgeoning new town. It was not uncommon at all for a family to build their estate on a 60+ acre piece while … Read More Home ~ Forever and a Day
The other day I wrote a post about an amazing home that we had a chance to explore and about the conversations that subsequently developed surrounding the “Character” of the home.

Let me start out these postings with one of my favorite groups: The Insitute of Classical Architecture and Art. The other week, we had a guest lecture and … Read More Here’s A Twofer
Yep, that’s me. I’d be the idiot that you would usually find hanging off the back of a jet ski with a camera in my hand. In fact, if anyone could draw a caricature of that (Ahem … Kane Hawkins, who happens to be the best illustrator I’ve ever met) I’d love to have one as my new profile pic. Anyway, here’s a little randomness from the Lake. Building ~ Who doesn’t get excited … Read More Random Shots ~ New Life / Quintessentials / Treasures / Ruckus
I Love to find patterns. Patterns in the marketplace. Patterns in emerging developments. Patterns in people’s behaviors. The crazy thing is though, so often I fail to see any of the patterns in my own life. While driving from one project to another last week, I began to connect a few of the dots. You see, I’ve never considered myself to be defined by one single architectural style. In … Read More Which one would you pick?
