A little about us:
We love the character and quality of these historic homes and have fallen in love with several homes in Laramie.  Being an artist and designer, René has done much of the work. Follow this link to see other vintage properties we have restored in Laramie. René also designed and built property in Austin Texas. Our current project is located at S 4th Street and it has a vintage greenhouse (original Laramie Floral) and an art studio for René’s home base. 4th Street Studios Rene Williams Art and Science Loves Art

The neighborhood is amazing with long timers and interesting folks with stories about the hood mixed in with young families and people like us that wouldn’t live anywhere else.  It is nice to see the kids playing in the streets and riding their bikes all summer.  Everyone around here is a dog walker and as we sit on the porch everyday it is great to see everyone.

We look forward to finding the perfect new owner for this property.


René and David Williams
