This month one of the most famous churches in the world received a building permit a mere 137 years after construction began. Even though it is still under construction, La Sagrada Familia, designed by Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí has been dropping jaws for a century. Dubbed as one of the greatest modernist architectural feats this Roman Catholic basilica now has a permit….to be built!
The first time I visited the Hamptons it was cold, super windy and completely covered in snow. It was miserable to be honest. There were not many businesses open and it just seemed so desolate. All these big beautiful homes, completely empty.
A few years ago I was lucky enough to invite myself to visit with friends who were at the time living in Switzerland. I was ecstatic! I spent a full week walking around with my mouth and eyes wide open. While I could literally spend hours talking about the history, the architecture, cobblestones, and the ALPS! I won’t. Today I want to share some of the spaces I didn’t even get to go into!
We love a good renovation! There is something about taking down walls, reconfiguring an area for better function and then seeing it finished out that makes our job so worthwhile. But sometimes even the simplest of renovations are even more rewarding! We recently had a sweet couple move to the area and reach out for help on their kitchen that wasn’t functioning properly for a young growing family.
If you have ever followed Rick and I around on social media you will not be surprised to hear that Asheville, North Carolina is one of our favorite spots.
