We’ve added a photo gallery for Summerville Land and Homes For Sale!
April 5-7 was the annual Summerville Flowertown Festival featuring live music, food, and vendors selling everything from hi-tech pizza ovens for your backyard or kitchen, to crafts and arts. Friday started with inclement weather, but the weekend was perfect.
It was nice to be able to walk around the historic town and play tourist for an afternoon. Summerville is rich in history and features some of the most beautiful homes in the area. Streets like Sumter, Rutherford and West 5th are adorned with some exquisitely preserved homes that rarely come on the market. I recall only seeing 1 “For Sale” sign for the entire walk.
It was also a good opportunity for some contractors to get the word out about their services.
One of the more interesting vendors I came across was Total Refractory Management, a local company providing custom refractory manufacturing and service. According to Wikipedia, “refractory materials must be chemically and physically stable at high temperatures”. That makes sense if a homeowner has a ceramic wood-burning oven in the kitchen that is capable of reaching 1000 degrees F.
While they prefer to work with builders during new homes’ design stage, they can work with existing homeowners to design and install incredible brick wood-burning ovens indoors or out. This option might not be one that your typical home buyer ever thinks of, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it becomes more common in custom homes or in backyard kitchens.
It was a great festival, with lots to do for young and old alike. Can’t wait until next year’s!
