Have you ever used products from Evolutia when building your home?
If you haven't used them, I know you've heard about them, no? They sell high end restoration products such as antique beams, reclaimed brick and gorgeous wood flooring. I feel a little ridiculous since I've seen your home and know that you write for a decorating blog which features many wonderful companies.
I have been hired by a small private company that are tearing down historical buildings in Georgia and probably Alabama. Primarily they are cotton mills that are HUGE with plenty of red brick. The heart pine has been sold but I'm not sure about the maple. I have been hired to sell the brick, not all of course,since there is 12 million alone in one building.
All of a sudden I've got a bad case of the nerves and I haven't even started. If only I could stay out of the bathroom this morning, whew.
The man I am dating financed the whole project and asked that they hire me because of my love of historical things, which they did. Did I spell historical right, dear God I am nervous NOW.
I am good at dinner parties and picking out beautiful antiques, and knowing how to dress the part. But selling is a different animal. However, I have a passion for the product I would be selling, a big one.
I am going to call on Evolutia in Homewood as soon as I learn a little more about reclaimed brick.
I asked about this over in This Old House on gardenweb and they put me through the ringer and brought up some valid but discouraging points. Now, I'm thinking they might be right.
I know this is not your expertise but do you have any pointers for me? I think I just need the advice of a fellow Alabamian.
My answer to the people over in This Old House below.
When Quincy Jones asked Steven Spelberg to direct the movie The Color Purple, he said "I know nothing about black people". Quincy Jones quickly answered and said, you knew nothing about Martians either did you?
I'm taking the job, wish me luck.
Another question Allison, do you know of any other companies that I could call on in Alabama?
