20 Years In Inman Park


Shannon and I moved into our home on Ashland Avenue on December 5, 1998!  Huge thanks to Betsy Butler for closing the deal and the amazing community that has seen us through two renovations, two kids, and lots of adventure in between.

Inman Park Festival April 28-30

Inman Park Festival


The weather looks great for this weekend's Inman Park Festival!  Come in Friday afternoon for easy access to the Tour of Homes.  Atlanta's #1 parade will start rolling Saturday at 2 p.m.

MARTA to Inman Park station is always your best option for visiting the neighborhood for festival. As of this afternoon, Beltline construction has Austin Avenue closed in both directions in front of Krog Street Market.  If you can't take the train, please Uber in to the edge of the neighborhood.

Our whole crew is in the parade this year, so we are forgoing our usual open house.  Please drop a text if you you are coming in the 'hood anytime this weekend. We look forward to seeing you.
