Wise men say

Written by: Melanie Circle Brown

Ralph and Holly Augostini know from experience that good things happen to those who wait. Their home was built in the 1950s, around the time Elvis was crooning “…only fools rush in…” Half a century and three owners later, the Augostini kitchen looked exactly as it did when it was built, down to the original cabinets, limited counter space, and paisley curtains.  The frozen-in-time kitchen did not deter the Augostinis from purchasing their home in 1999. Holly says that otherwise the house was perfect for their family of five and she and Ralph knew they would eventually renovate but, “we wanted to live in the house for a while to really know how we wanted to change the kitchen, and then do it right.”
