Yesterday, on one of the most perfect days of the year, we had the pleasure of attending a reading in the Barn. The “Fearrington Friends of the Arts” group (one of over 100 interest groups for Fearrington residents) hosted Sarah Susanka, author and architect best known for her “Not So Big" message. It was a great turn out of both residents and local community. During her reading, she spoke about designing a house so it is a home, making it a space personal to you and designing it so it...
