15th Ave. Merchants Association Street Fest
What did we do for the 2nd Annual 15th Avenue East Merchants Association Street Festival? We set up a living room on the street, of course! Complete with carpet tiles donated by Flor, lounge chairs, and, of course, a big bowl of lego bricks, we offered attendees a comfortable seat to join us and #AskAnArchitect.

Last Sunday the B&V team pulled out all the stops and created a living room parking spot for the 2nd Annual 15th Avenue E Merchants Association Street Festival!
Our "booth," complete with carpet tiles donated by Flor, lounge chairs and the credenza from our conference room, a big bowl of lego bricks, a midcentury-modern lamp on loan from Robert, and a coffee table from Jeff's house, was an inviting and intriguing space offering attendees a comfortable seat to #AskAnArchitect your burning remodeling questions. It was all built on a foundation of OSB to level out the asphalt.
Throughout the afternoon our talented staff fielded questions and solved problems. We also hosted a scavenger hunt, encouraging attendees to visit a dozen or so local businesses in order to fill in the blanks on the clue sheet. Anyone who got all the answers right was entered into a drawing for a Gift Certificate for 8 hours of free architectural services. (Congratulations, Ramona!)
Several bands and individual musicians lent their talents to the festival atmosphere, and the sidewalks were crowded with balloons. It was a pretty successful event that will only get better with time.
