I like the random teddy bear in that one pic.
These are really great looking! and the price is great! wish they could put that much effort into some of the apartments in OP! (which are way overpriced for what u have to live in)

Nice - love that tile in the entry hall and accenting the fireplaces...

Lake, do you know if they have rented any units?

I feel sorry for the big tree from the front that had to go.

Great story.  I have so much more Springfield exploration to do on future visits.

The two completed units are already leased and occupied.

Those units look amazing.  Really great work.  I'd love to do something like that some day.

Yes and those blue walls have to go to. Other than all the different colors, they renovation was done nicely! I just dont understand the blue. I would die if I moved into an apartment with blue walls. An accent wall here and there would have nice, but all those blue walls have to go. lol

Beautiful job! I like the blue walls, but also mourn the loss of the tree.

Looks great.

Is Florida Lee an American version of the "fleur-de-lis"?
