Open House on Second Street

Architecture in Use

Mary and I recently attended an open house at our Second Street project. The owners have been moved in for several months now, so they have had time to turn the house into their home. In celebration, they hosted the event.

It was a fine time. The home worked very well for a large gathering. The size of the spaces was just right, and the quiet nooks and away room allowed more intimate conversations. Tours flowed easily around the home while other guests enjoyed appetizers and beverages. I like the photo above, because it shows how work and visiting are accomodated together.

I had less luck with other photos because of the amount of light coming into the space from the windows, which fooled my camera but not my eyes.

In the end, the owners are very pleased with their house and home and the process we walked together to get there.
