Idea House Exterior Photos

Southern Living has posted a video sneak peek of the 2012 Idea House in Senoia, Georgia. Click the image above to go to Southern Living’s website and watch the video.


It took nearly a year for Southern Living magazine and the Idea House Team to transform a tired 1830s farmhouse into Southern Living’s 2012 Idea House, but the entire process was captured on video.  This 30 second spot shows makes it look easy:

FOUR Days Until the Grand Opening!

The 2012 Southern Living Idea House is dressed and waiting for her date (with you, the visitors!).  In the meantime, her proud “parents” have sent a photo and video crew to get some pictures while she’s all gussied up.

Everyone loves a good before and after, so without further ado:

She’ll be ready to receive you on SATURDAY, June 2nd.  Don’t keep her waiting!

Information and Tickets

Marvin Windows & Doors,  a sponsor of the 2012 Southern Living Idea House, is capturing the restoration of the 19th-century farmhouse on video.   Here’s the first episode in the series, which follows the Idea House architects, builder and interior designers  as they transform the old structure into a 21st century showhouse.

16 Days Until the Grand Opening

For the first time in the history of the Southern Living Idea House program, the magazine is featuring an attached, townhouse-style residence.  The Senoia Idea House, dubbed Abercorn Place,  is the end unit of a row of brownstones.   While construction continues INSIDE the other units, the construction crews are scrambling to have the exteriors complete for the Grand Opening  so that visitors can experience a taste of what The Gin Property will become.  It’s amazing to see the how the recently-installed iron work, cast “stone” steps and street trees frame the brick sidewalk.  Can’t wait to take a stroll when the street’s complete!

25 Days Until the Grand Opening

Here in Georgia, we enjoy outdoor living.  While the Senoia Idea House has virtually no “yard”, it is certainly not lacking when it comes to al fresco living spaces.  Here are two of them:
