Taken Back a Bit…

Well, we just made it back, with a bevy of young’uns in tow, from a week away at my second most favorite place under the sun. That place being St. Simons Island along the gorgeous Georgia coast. I love it for its strength in resisting the trap of commercialization. You know, a sell out of any kind has always rubbed me the wrong way.  While we … Read More Taken Back a Bit…

It’s a Radiation Vibe Thing

  Here’s one of my All~Time favorite Homes, in one of my All~Time favorite communities. The beautiful enclave of Brookhaven.

Grand Transformations

I think you will most definitely enjoy this one. It was not only fun to build out, but, it also had an incredible, earth-shattering impact on the character of the Home.

A builder friend of mine, who happened to be very successful at his profession, once told me that in order to succeed in our market, you have to … Read More The Road Less Traveled

Working on a Dream ~ A Small Glimpse Into Heaven

     As I set out on a run the other evening, several thoughts were weighing heavy on my mind.  I began thinking about bills that needed to be dealt with, the economy, financial markets and the direction of this great country, when a stream came through my mind.  I am not saying in the least that this was some sort of vision, it was … Read More Working on a Dream ~ A Small Glimpse Into Heaven

Mini Blog ~ Moments from the Lake ~ Solitude and Serenity

Following up from our most recent family gathering at the lake, here is a glimpse of some of the more subtle retreats that are tucked away around the property and which provide the greatest rejuvenating power of everything there is to enjoy. You see, toward the end of the week, we actually had seventeen people trying to co-exist up there. Fortunately, with the way … Read More Mini Blog ~ Moments from the Lake ~ Solitude and Serenity
