Springtime in the 'Ville

Written by RJ Thieneman inter, Remington Colbert

Spring time in Louisville is beautiful. The dogwoods and redbuds are in bloom, the springtime bulbs are showing of their vibrant colors, and the parks start buzzing with touches of new life. This city breathes a new breath when we have a nice warm spring day. And then it all starts, the activites, the events, the festivities. 

St. Patrick's Day is a stable for Louisville. If you are into the bar scenne, St. Matthews, Bardstown Rd/Baxter Ave, and Fourth Street are insanity all day. Drinks are cheap and it is a fun time to spend with friends. If you have litllte ones, the St. Patrick's Day parade wanders its way through the Highlands and can create a fun family event!

Waterfront Wednesdays start in April and go throughout the summer. With live music out side using th e river as the backdrop, this free event is great for any music lover or to spend with freinds or family. 

Many spring time markets pop up throughout the city. Fresh farmer's markets, flea markets, and neighborhood sales happen every Saturday in various place. Sometimes are pretty days you can be able to find live music.

Downtown Living

Written by RJT intern Remington Colbert

Urban centers are growing and Louisville is no exception. People are moving into the area causing neighborhoods that weren't residential areas slowly turn into mix use areas. In Louisville, downtown and Nulu are perfect examples. The convenience of living above a workplace, neighborhood market, or staple shops and restaurants have become an appealing aspect of individuals moving into urban centers. In old cities, many old buildings are revitalized and turned into truely unique opportunities for all kinds of use. We have a listing at 415 E Market St. Close to shops, restaurants, the best entertainment venues in the city, and many public events throughout the year, this loft is perfect for the true urbanite. 

The building was renovated in 2013, making the units inside new, with a harmonious blend of the building's historic roots.

 In time, it will be more and more common for people to be moving back into the city from the suburbs. With that happening, properties like this one will emerge, and a ton of new construction building up. Skylines of cities will constantly be adapting and changing. Less commute times, easier access to amenities, shopping, and entertainment will make individuals more condensed. Urban planners, developers, designers, builders, and government officials are going to have to tackle the issues associated with increased urban living, however the benefits long term will out weight the short term costs and inconviences. If you're interested in moving downtown, or want to start doing some property research, contact us for more information! And check out...

Easy Pool Upgrades

Written by RJT intern Remington Colbert

Pools are  a luxury feature found fairly commonly in areas that get warm during the summer. Having a pool can be a mixed emotion. On one hand it is fun and relaxing; it makes it wase to entertain. However, anyone with a pool knows it is a lot of maintenance and can be very expensive. Personally, the benefits of having a pool outweight the irritations in my opinion. If you are lucky (or cursed) enough to have a pool, here are some neat ideas to add before the summer season gets here. 

Slide

Pools are a fun way to to waste a summer afternoon. The excitement of having your own mini waterpark at home will make all the neighborhood kids jealous. Pools can be expensive, however temporary ones can work just as well if there is a hose spouting water.

It's a Dog House!

Written by RJT intern Remington Colbert,

Everyone loves their pets and want them around 24/7, however all the things that come along with a pet can get in the way. Cages, toys, food bowls, harnesses, beds, etc. The list goes on and on. However besides storage solutions many new home builders and remolders are creating designs to blend pet's needs with great design. Whether you're remodeling, building, or just like looking a pictures of cute animals, hopefully these ideas can help in your home planning process! MoneyWatch CBS had some great ideas back in 2014, and these ideas can be implemented in your home! 

Custom Staircases

Just like people, animals get old over time and have dificulty on stairs. Small pets have a disadvantage with stairs from the start. Creative stair solutions like these create a unique look, easy movement for the pets, and makes for an interesting conversation starter! 

Doors with windows

Bring the outdoors in, our keep the pets active with the outside world! Windows not only provide for additional light, they create a high end look and keep the pets less isolated. 

Pet Doors

Builders are getting away from the pet doors built into the main exterior door. Now it is common to find additional doors placed to the side. It's quite similar to the Alice in Wonderland doors that are tiny! For a clean look order a custom that is identical to the main door!

With spring fast approaching, everyone is itching to get outside and feel the warm days. However, when living in urban areas it can be a challenge to have peace and serenity when their are neighbors everywhere around. Some people like lots of land with no one around, yet many others like having the convience of the city, a small lot, or the comradery of neighbors. One thing everyone wants is a sense of privacy. Well if your don't have the luxury of large tracts of land, these ideas may help bring in some privacy. 

Privacy Screen

Simple, Inexpensive, and sleak. This is a great last minute fix for entertaining or a new look in your design.

Garden Gates

These are great off the side of the garage to hide your backyard from the front of the house. Garden Gates give a luxurious look that does not take up much space.
