This quarter we are designing a office building, and are required to work with partners. Well I'm a lucky girl, and I am working with my best friend, Ashlee. We heard all the warnings.....
"Don't work with your best friend"
"You won't be friends afterward if you do"
We took these warnings into consideration and formed an agreement, which at times we joke about. We decided that if we got into a disagreement that we would discuss it with each other over a cupcake from the Cupcake Emporium. (sadly no website) However, we have yet to even have to visit the Cupcake Emporium. On some notes, it's kinda sad since I've been wanting one of those tasty treats, but on a brighter note.. I still have my best friend. We work incredible well together, and when we even feel like we are driving each other CRAZY one of us just takes a step back. Needless to say, things are going GREAT.
The company that we chose to bring to Savannah was
Mendocino Winery Partners

"Leave It Better Than You Found It."

One of the benefits to bringing a business from the West Coast to the East Coast is that we get to use an actual building in Savannah.
Our building for this quarter is...
Drum Roll Please..
221 West Broughton Street
This happens to currently be the Urban Outfitter's building. NO, Urban Outfitters isn't moving, we just use a real building to design with. We are working with the historical elements of the building and getting it back up to the building codes of today's times.
(BUILDING CODES = Somewhat of the drawback to Interior Design)
The building needs alot of work done on the 2nd and 3rd Story.
So this is a glimpse at our company!
Things are progressing right along with only 4 weeks to go....
Hope your having a GREAT WEEK!
