Cotton Exchange and Sweet Olive get a facelift!

August 29, 2009 by Teresa Jacobson

Well, let’s be specific and say, “Two of Azalea Inn and Gardens’ favorite rooms just got a chin lift.”
The decks were torn down and completely rebuilt to accommodate the tree that grows right outside the Cotton Exchange and up past Live Oak Canopy. The tree had the deck going all katiwhumpus and the nails holding all together were groaning to be released from the pain.
My brother Sean arrived on Saturday afternoon, and by Sunday afternoon, must have been bored silly and offered to fix the decks.  Now Sean is a perfectionist when it comes to carpentry, so it would be no other way than tearing it down and rebuilding it, using all the same materials just re-purposed with the addition of composite decking boards which NEVER need painting!
