Atlanta: An Old Library Building Becomes a New Home For Atlanta Couple
From USA Today:
When most folks look at a library, they just see a library. But when Atlanta residents Randy Brazee and Jonathan Huff first saw an old library building for sale, they immediately saw a home.
“The first time I walked into this space, I knew right away,” Brazee recalls with a faraway look in his eyes. “The layout, all the things we could do. When you walk into a house, you know whether it’s your house or not. When I walked in here, I just knew.”
Brazee and Huff are partners in life and in business, running a successful real estate agency. So when the couple started exploring the old Kirkwood Library in east Atlanta, they saw past the commercial aspects of the 1942 building and the 1976 addition added to the back. They ignored the men’s and women’s restrooms, the exit signs, the 12-car parking lot.
