Business Planning, Birdhouses and Active Rain

Real Estate Agent with Compass CA DRE# 01215160

What do bird houses have in common with business planning and Active Rain?

Recently I spent a couple of days away from my office working on my business. I am most efficient with this type of work away from the daily distractions. One of my favorite destinations is heading to West Marin County, holing up in a simple B&B, and getting down to work.

So off I went to the Abalone Inn, a 102-year-old house in Inverness Park, next to the Point Reyes National Seashore. In the garden of the inn, with climbing roses scenting the air with their fragrance and the warm sun shining down, I spied these birdhouses.

I immediately thought of our colleague, Ron Marshall, birdhouse builder extraordinaire. For those of you who don't yet know Ron, I suggest you check out some of his wonderful blog posts and photos of his creative, charming, whimsical, beautiful birdhouses. You'll enjoy his craftsmanship -- and possibly one of his birdhouses will soon grace your own yard!

Lottie those bird houses are very unusual.  They would look great on a porch or deck.

These are very charming, Lottie. Do you think they will consider a lease/option on either of these little homes. I've got a bird family who can't get a loan  until next year. Ha.

Happy Easter, Lottie!

Lottie, glad you could get away, and when you had "birdhouses" in your title, I did think of Ron Marshall.
