Settlement Road Property
A Rezoning Application has been filed with Cobb County by John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods, Inc. (“JWHN”). The application is seeking to rezone approximately 24 acres of the Settlement Road Property from R30 to R20 OSC (Open Space Community). While the current zoning would permit approximately 30 single-family homes, the requested zoning would permit approximately 45 single-family homes in return for more open space.
*A copy of the application can be found on the Vinings Homeowners Association website
Special Evaluation Task Force
The Board of Trustees of the Vinings Village Homeowners Association has established a Settlement Road Committee of homeowners from Areas V, VI VII and VIII to evaluate the situation and make a recommendation to the Board. Jim Polk has agreed to Chair the Committee as Representative of Area VII.
In order to assist the committee, the VVHA is requesting that Vinings Village homeowners provide their opinions, ideas and recommendations to their Area Representatives regarding this important Zoning. The VVHA welcomes any and all correspondence, and appreciates your efforts in responding to this important matter. The VVHA will keep the Community apprised as the Committee’s work progresses.
Please respond to Contact@viningshoa.org or directly to your area Representative.
Maybe you’ve watched the television show Flipping Out on Bravo, maybe not. I get a kick out of it because sometimes when I’m dealing with (or a client is dealing with) builders and designers we probably feel how the star, Jeff Lewis, often feels in this program.
I have a real life Vinings/Buckhead answer to the remodeling/building nightmares: Cottage Industry Construction, owned by husband/wife team Lauren and Greg DeLoach. They have been friends and clients of mine for years.
Greg is a builder with a building degree from Georgia Tech and Lauren is a designer with a degree in Interior Design from the University of Georgia. Lauren regularly works with Greg’s clients drawing plans, space planning and making selections. Greg is amazing at keeping the project on time and on budget.
Everyone will have to sell their house someday and I often get calls when people are remodeling or building wondering what a prospective buyer’s preference would be, or asking me how important something is.
Greg and Lauren have a sense of what needs to be done at what price point with houses. She can select lighting fixtures for a $300,000 house or a $3M house and make them both look timeless and current.
On the TV program, Jeff Lewis does both design and building as well and he has a staff that he’s constantly firing or having issues with because it really is a tough job to marry the two.
Trying to keep on schedule (and on budget) is always a challenge and by working with a couple that is literally married I think the builder gets the answers he needs a lot quicker from the designer!
Greg, Lauren and I had a standing joke that I could sell all of their houses in “1″ day. I think it took 3 days one time. Anyway, their talents of building, design and experience are worthy of making note. I want the DeLoach’s to start their own TV program, and of course I want to be the agent to sell all of their gorgeous houses!
Cottage Industry Construction has two projects going on in Buckhead currently, joining with great names in architecture locally. I’m sure you’ll be seeing a lot more of them in the future.
I’m including some pictures and their contact information if you know of someone interested.
So stay tuned!
