Web and Carol Gridley were neighbors of ours on T.I. Park.  Along with their children growing and marrying, there came a wish to make the cottage more comfortable — to open the living space, improve the kitchen and sleeping areas and to restore the exterior of the cottage to a lost charm.  Old photos were indistinct and of little help, so we had the opportunity – and the responsibility - to reimagine it.  We did so with joy and with excitement as it gave us a chance to play with Gothic forms and Victorian details.  Mary Ellen Hagen was an enthusiastic partner in this effort regarding detailing and especially color schemes.
