In the fall of 2013, a single-story Craftsman was remodeled into a cafe and bookstore combo with a local, sustainable design that fosters community and commerce.

Craftsman Home Exterior With Front Yard Rock Bed, Concrete Walkway and Green Siding
Chocolate brown trim frames the green siding of this craftsman home creating a woodsy color scheme. A concrete walkway travels through the front yard to steps leading to the covered front porch and entryway. A rock bed running parallel to the walkway gives the front yard an intriguing element and adds rough texture to the natural calm of the space.
