Our passion for our hometown shows in everything we do!
The decision to take on the renovation of one of Cotter's historic buildings was a no-brainier for us! We have taken an "eye sore" and turned it into "eye candy"!
"Potter Block" was built in 1921 by Seth James Potter and was first set up as a Saloon & a Salon in the downstairs spaces with living quarters above. The home was given a face lift back in the 1970’s which provided local residents with permanent housing for many years.
After transitioning from the U.S. Army and closing out an incredible 23 year career, Kammi (my wife) and I found our way back home to the community that loved and supported us for so many years. We purchased "Potter Block" and saw the potential that this historic building had and knew that we could help bring new life to the street & our hometown. When we purchased the home, it was in major need of repairs as much of the maintenance had been deferred for many years. Time had taken its toll on "Potter Block", but we had a vision and the passion to make an impact, which has truly been a labor of love!
When we started with "Potter Block" there were two apartments downstairs (each with 2 bedrooms / 1 bath) and two apartments upstairs with one (2 bed / 1 bath) and the other (1 bed / 1 bath). The vision was to make one large apartment (3 bedrooms / 2 baths) upstairs as the primary residence and keep the main concept of two apartments (2 beds / 1 bath) downstairs. Opening the layout upstairs gave Kammi a blank slate to start with and she was able to make the space fit our needs and desires. The plan changed a few times throughout the process, but the main concept stayed the same and what we ended up with is a true work of art! Kammi's gift for design and true eye for beauty, allowed her to create something that is truly one of a kind and a pleasure to call home!
