I have probably hit a new low in being pedantic and speaking down to you, but there is no depth to which I will not travel.  Almost all of you if asked what is a door will create the mental image of the entrance door of your home or the door leading to the bedroom or bathroom of your home.  When I Googled this question, I got lots of definitions, but Wikipedia’s caught my eye the most.

Making Your Model Home Memorable


There is no such thing as bad publicity is something that you always hear, but we use the word memorable here as a positive description.  Nobody wants to be the example that their competitor uses to explain what NOT to do.  The idea here is to distinguish your model home from the others that the buying public visit.  We’re talking about WOW! vs. Ye Gads!

Tucson Project Before

Since the beginning of the year, we have been building and arranging for the installation of a wonderful project in Tucson.  The house is in a country club community and was built in the '70's by the first woman architect to graduate from the University of Arizona Architecture School.  The house has good bones but needed a facelift to help the large living room better relate to the wonderful front courtyard.  The attached photo is what it looked like before the demolition began.
