Remodeling Our Home

Nana's Thumb Up!

I was ecstatic to find a “home” for The Highlander School! After years of searching for a facility in town Atlanta, specifically in East Atlanta…I stumbled upon “the bright yellow house”.  Built in 1941, the “bright yellow house” had served its community well, operating as a day care center since 1974 under various owners. Needless to say  it needed some love and tender care.

Looking Over Plans

…Looking over the plans

The demolition begins!


 From the beginning, I  knew wanted the school to look and feel like a home away from home. Our plans were to increase the square footage for each child, adding outdoor porches, updating the flooring,electrical,plumbing and heating and cooling systems. Oh and a new roof and a new paint job!



 So I have to confess…I didn’t do much respect to the demolition. A couple of swings with the hammer and I was done!





The Yellow is Gone!  




And the progress continues….
