Yes … we can!

WThings are moving along fast on my new addition in Cashiers, North Carolina. The framers, electricians, roofers and painters are working hard so that we can move in soon. The new garage is waiting for doors and the new entry garden with the stone wall is waiting for gravel and soil. I have beautiful conical boxwood ready to install any day now, as well.

Building in the mountains is usually a long-drawn-out affair, but thanks to my skilled architect, Keven Hawkins, we’re moving along quickly. Have a look at the progress we’ve made—and we only started in mid April!

Yes … we can—just two months and we’ve come so far. Go team!
