February 2012 Yard of the Month

The home of Mike and Tammy Amyx at 1234 Chippewa is recognized as the February 2012 Yard of the Month.

The Amyxs provided the following: “We moved into our house in 1999. We wanted our son to stay in RISD, and, although he graduated from J.J. Pearce in 2008, we can’t imagine leaving the Reservation and our home. It has been a labor of love, where every room has had some aspect of remodeling inside and outside. Our latest venture was to remove the brick off the front of our home and install rock; and, as we all know, one project tends to lead to another, so we then decided to change our pillars to a wood rustic look and add a metal roof. We have decided to make the changes to our current home instead of going somewhere and buying another home because we love the neighborhood feel of the Reservation. We love that our neighbors watch out for each other and that, when you take your dogs for a walk, you are always greeted by a neighbor with a smile or wave.”
