Getting to Buildings

The first project that we are developing here in Starkville is the renovation of this building into a cafe and apartment. This is one block from the main street and we wanted a project that reflected our commitment to urban living and the sustainable potential of living in a small town. In a month we will open Little Building Cafe which will have coffee, muffins,"cat head' biscuits and lunch items all featuring local produce and products. We have designed the building with Solar hot water and have tried to the best of our ability to use local products in the construction of the project. We have used an "within arms length attitude" about how the building gets made-well you have seen the re-worked chairs. I will walk through many of the finishing decisions that effected the graphics package and the furniture program. More tomorrow.....
