In the grey DC winter, we're especially grateful for our light-filled corner office (with the most wonderful coffee from our friends across the street at Pleasant Pops). We bought the building in 2011, and promptly became our own worst client: high maintenance, no time, no budget, no patience. It was worth the hassle & hustle, though . . . and now it's about time for office-improvement-round-two.
Our building used to be a Corner Market. Neighborhood lore is that the "market" was a front for something else because of the oddball hours and inventory (think bleach & a blueberry muffin) . . .
