Before the kids head back to school, we encourage you to make the most of these last few weeks of summer. Here are 4 family friendly North Fulton County summer activities to take advantage of before the start of school.

The Roswell Fire Museum is open every day from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. The museum houses several historical artifacts that help tell the history of the Roswell Volunteer Fire Department. One of the artifacts you will see at the museum is a 1947 Ford American LaFrance Pumper. The museum also has a firetruck that you can explore during your visit.

Located in Roswell, Old Mill Park is the perfect place to spend a fun-filled day outdoors. Here you can walk the trails to the waterfall created from the damming of Vickery Creek. Similarly, you can walk across the covered bridge and view the ruins of the only mill building to survive the Civil War. There are also several spots along the trails ideal for taking a break and enjoying a picnic.

Shop Local at These Fulton County Farmers Markets


One of the best places to find fresh herbs, meats, and produce is right in your own backyard. With the arrival of April, we also welcome back local farmers markets. There are several products available for you to purchase at your local farmers market. These include fresh meat and produce, as well as herbs and flowers.  Here are a couple farmers markets in Fulton County to check out this spring.

Why Buy Local?

From purchasing produce during its peak season to meeting the people growing the food, there are several reasons to buy local. Buying locally grown and raised food benefits both you and the farmers. You benefit because you get fresh herbs, meats, and produce from people in your community. For instance, produce is typically fresher at a farmers market because it is picked closer to the day of the market. For the farmers, selling locally can also yield higher return because they don’t have to ship the food hundreds of miles away.

2018 Home Design Trends

2018 Home Design Trends


Your homes aesthetic is so much more than the decor you choose to adorn your walls or the furniture that fills each room. The architectural and structural components of your home lay the foundation, and in 2018 these elements are also making a statement. Read on and look out for these trends in our Sharp Residential communities across North Atlanta.

Ample Cabinetry

2018 Home Design Trend Heavy Cabinetry

If you spend a lot of time in your kitchen, you know the never-ending struggle of not having enough storage space. Luckily, having ample kitchen cabinetry is an emerging trend that we anticipate will stick around for many years to come. Along with having more cabinetry in the kitchen, you can also expect to see more people featuring gray, cream, and wood grain cabinetry as opposed to the traditional white. With a variety of styles and finishes available, you’re sure to find the perfect selection for your new home.

Intricate Ceilings

2018 Home Design Trend Intricate Ceilings

Move aside flat ceilings, and make way for exposed beams, decorative tray ceilings, and beautiful coffered ceilings. From the living room to the dining room, and the study to the bedroom, we are seeing more intricate ceilings being used throughout the home. This beautiful wooden tray ceiling at one of our homes in Northpoint Forest is the perfect example of how a unique twist can change the appeal of the entire room.

Large Tile

2018 Home Design Trend Large Tile

As seen in this gorgeous master bathroom in one of our homes at Blue Valley, large tile is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after features for bathrooms. Not only is the larger tile aesthetically pleasing, it is also more functional. With less grout, it is easier to install and maintain.

Natural Elements

From exposed brick to stone, concrete, and granite, natural materials have made their way into home interior design, and we don’t expect them to leave anytime soon!
