The Braun Residence is moving along and is expected to be complete in a few weeks. We have enjoyed working with the contractor, Durham Potter, for the first time. Cabinets by Xylem are in, and railings by David Wehrenberg are scheduled for installation next week. Finishing touches are all that remain!
This home for two of our office's dearest friends is nearing completion in downtown Raleigh. Working in the Prince Hall Historic District, we have carefully blended old and new on the interior and created a minimally articulated rear addition that complements the rich quality of the existing house. Southeastern Properties has done a wonderful job making the space come alive, and we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of cabinets by dopko cabinetry.

Song of the Month: "Life Crisis" by River Whyless
Our Song of the Month is "Life Crisis" by River Whyless. The song is off their new album, We All the Light. The band blends americana roots, bluegrass undertones, and a typewriter to create their unique sound. Started in Asheville in 2011, the band continues to evolve creatively and culturally. They will be playing in October at Cat's Cradle - go see them!
