A Rental Renovation – and newest team members!

It was October 2016 when I drove up a long driveway that was shadowed by beautiful oak trees.  I had a feeling things were fixing to get real interesting. And they did! As I parked my car, I couldn't help but notice the quiet. The beauty of the surroundings was simple and natural, and as [...]
