Found a great website!

Each unique luxury home is distinct not only by it's design, and qualitiy of materials used but also by it's individual nature and it's furnishings. Not only are the interior finishes and furnishings important but the exterior atmosphere should be just as discriminating. I found this exceptional website that offers some of the most distinct, one-of-a-kind, custom stonework for your home and garden. Absolute works of art!

If you are searching for that signature piece for your lawn, outdoor haven or an exceptional statue please check out Earthstone Studio. I am sure that they will be able to assist you with your creative ideas and a few suggestions of their own.

Very Successfull 2007 Parade of Homes

Did you make it out? Better yet, did you make it out alive?

Linville was swarming with people this past weekend! I felt somewhat sorry for the actual residents there. I arrived early both days and you could just see the full-time residents filter out of the neighborhood for the day to avoid the mass of people driving through and the tour buses on route. There was one bus with 43 people that showed up in Linville.

From my perspective it was a huge success! I had many people tour 11229 Conley Cove Court and they were in awe of the incredible craftsmanship, lavish pool and attention to detail that Pinnacle Construction Group is known for. Several had also visited Hasentree and said that it, too, was a zoo!

If you were one of my visitors this past weekend - THANKS for stopping by! It was great seeing you. If you missed it you can always give me a call and I can arrange a private tour of any of the homes that were on Parade.
