For as long as I can remember, the former Hartloff Law Office was always beautiful but was one of those buildings that never seemed to change. I am not complaining. Some of our best buildings are gorgeous but always remain the same. For example, the White House in Washington D.C. We never turn on the evening news and hear that an architect and designers have been hired to re-vamp the stately old building. We never hear that they are discussing what new colors will be used for the body, trimwork and shutters, do we? No, of course not.
Liz Gould purchased the building a few months ago from the Hartloff Estate and practically immediately went to work making it her very own. New roofing has been done, the front door was taken out and a gorgeous door with a decorative glass center was hung in its place. Last Wednesday, the windows that she had ordered finally made it in. They were promptly inserted. I am ASSUMING that all of the energy has been shifted indoors.
We drove by her new accounting office late enough last night that we were able to see inside. The paint colors that she has chosen are just divine! I know that when everything is finished, we are all going to be very, VERY favorably impressed!
I try to post the buildings' on Main Street and Broadway's updates that provide better curb appeal. These property owners are investing some pretty nickels to achieve these looks and I think they deserve a pat on the back. They make a prettier town for all of us to live in PLUS they invite others to come to Leoti, have a cup of coffee and take a look around our fair town. When we are all working on our own business' and home's curb appeal, we are providing more reasons for people from other areas to want to move to a better life in Leoti.
Leoti has a wonderful health system, a great school connection and is one of the few communities in the nation right now that has an abundance of employment opportunities. Thank you, John and Liz, for doing your part in Leoti! They live in their very own park in far eastern Leoti and have really spruced up their office building on Main Street.
