Re: Open Thread

Anybody know of any good designers for private residences in the New England area? I've found plenty of projects on the Cape, but that's about it.

Reason I'm asking is I'm known to ridicule a lot of house's designs around friends but they always ask if there's a house I don't mind/can't tear apart... A few come to mind, but not from the internet or an architect that I'm aware of....

I'm a fan of Cummings Architects in Ipswich.

https://www.cummingsarchitects.com/

Connor Homes also does some quality pre-fab / panelized stuff.

https://www.connormill-built.com/

But that's only relevant if you're into a very traditional style.

Thanks! I should've mentioned I was looking for traditional styles.

About. Damn. Time.

Massachusetts marijuana stores to open Tuesday

Leicester and Northampton to start. How long before there's a dispensary in Boston?

9 Ways to Take Responsibility for Your Life instead of blaming others.

•Take responsibility for your thoughts, feelings, words and actions. ...
•Stop blaming. ...
•Stop complaining. ...
•Refuse to take anything personal. ...
•Make yourself happy. ...
•Live in the present moment. ...
•Use the power of intention. ...
•Feel calm and confident.

You gotta love how certain bloggers can respond to a thread but then shutdown the thread from others to respond to their opinion. Nice... Archboston has censorship based on only one groups point of view.

Re: Open Thread

Random query.

I have a friend of a fried coming in from Chicago this summer and looking for a one night stay in a hotel but are pretty much priced out of Boston.

They are asking about suburban hotels that still provide easy access to Boston but have lower than in-town rates. I figured this would be easy, but honestly I'm coming up blank. I know some of you guys either travel a lot or are just in the know, so I thought I would throw it out there. I don't have and dates or budget, just cheaper than/with access to Boston. Thanks.

Assuming they are looking for a semi-nice hotel? (otherwise just do an AirBnB in medford/malden or something).

For the former, here's one: the Hotel Indigo right near the Riverside T station:

Re: Open Thread

I think that's the idea. Unfortunately I'm getting the request third hand so it's tough getting more info. Thanks!

If transit-connected is the priority and they don't care about zero-frills, then they can try this one (also on the green line) - at least until it closes to be redeveloped:

I haven't (I live less than three miles away), but have spent many ours at family gatherings in the dining room. The proprietor, who's become something of a family friend, began his career with a pizza shop in Winthrop Center; he purchased and began restoring the restaurant and hotel in the early 80s. It's very old-timey New England resort-ish. Part of me wishes that they reduce the dinner menu and move toward seasonal farm-to-table offerings.
