The company hand makes amazing ice cream including Black Currant Tea, Lemon with Black Pepper-Marionberry Jam and traditional favorites such as Pistachio. Stop by their store and see the stand for yourself and enjoy a great scoop or two of ice cream. Read more about them on their Facebook page  hereBelow are some photos of their custom stand.

Spaces We Love: Blagden Alley Carriage House Renovation

This month's featured space is from Bennett Frank McCarthy Architect, Inc. The project involved a total renovation of a two story carriage house on Blagden Alley in Washington DC.  Blagden Alley is a quirky network of alleys at the interior of a DC city block not far from the convention center and China Town. The carriage house had previously been used as a wood shop at the ground level with a studio apartment above. Bennett Frank McCarthy Architect, Inc. converted it into a single unit featuring a kitchen / dining area on the first floor and a living / bedroom upstairs. We have featured of few of our favorite photos including some before photos. For more information on this project or Bennett Frank McCarthy Architects, Inc. please contact them on their website here.
