We've Moved To A New Decatur Location
We've already shared this with a many of you but thought we'd make the details known here on our blog just in case we've not talked personally about it. If you don't already know, our t eam moved office locations this past week.
As part of a larger commitment, we've set out to reduce our impact on the environment in both our personal and business lives (of course, if you know my wife Jesse you know she's got our personal impact down to a minimum already). So far this year we've taken on recycling at home and the office, car pooling whenever possible, installing CFL light bulbs, upgraded the efficiency of our HVAC systems, installed new windows and insulation in our homes and (as our leases run course) we're trading-up for more fuel efficient cars.
Our focus on more environmentally and economically sustainable ways of living also informs our move from a 2200 square foot office in Oakhurst (Decatur) to a more cozy space just around the corner. Although we love our location in Oakhurst Village and will miss it; we made the decision to choose a space that is more energy efficient and more in line with our square footage needs. Our home for more than 5 years, our Historic Oakhurst Village building was in great need of energy saving updates that simply weren't possible. And it goes without saying we had far more space than our efficient team of four needs.
As long time residents and business owners in Oakhurst and Decatur we didn't want to go too far. As luck would have it, there was a perfect spot available at East Decatur Station right off College Avenue. It's just around the corner from our current office and it's our new home starting this week.
As a result of this small change, our office is using nearly 75% LESS electricity and natural gas to operate our office -- resulting in savings of $578 per month just in energy costs alone. That's a smart move, if you ask me. Please make note of our new office address in East Decatur Station.
Keep an eye out for an invitation to visit a new section of our website where we'll share how you can take small steps toward a huge impact on your energy and money savings. And if that's not enough to keep you interested ... we'll be sharing some pictures of our new office space soon too.
As always, thank you so much for your continued support of our business.
