What I Love About My House

Posted on August 22nd, 2020

New additions! In anticipation of our first-ever Virtual House and Garden Tour, we are collecting mini cell phone videos (< 2 min) of neighbors talking about some feature of their home that they think would be of particular interest or that they’re particularly fond of. 

Get in on the fun by making one yourself!  There’s no fixed format except for the limit on length – so you can do it however you like. Check out the examples below.  If you’re stumped on the technology aspects – or are struggling to decide what to film – send a note to Don’t be shy; we’d love to see what makes you happy!
