Specializing in the luxury style embodied by Hampton's residences, Barsalin Building & Design streamlines home makeovers by integrating practical construction techniques and interior-design ideas. Upscale living quarters gain a fashionable foundation with meticulous preconstruction planning, and existing habitats benefit from renovations including care for crumbling brick walls or weeping Abe Lincoln busts. The interior-design team tackles both exterior and interior spaces, populating barren abodes with complementary colors, feng shui–minded furniture, and other alluring accents.
The Priceless Parrot Preserve sounds like a jungle. The calls and conversations of more than 100 birds from 29 species form a symphony that strengthens social bonds. Well-behaved members of the flock greet visitors and play with toys hanging from the ceiling, whereas animals with behavioral issues—often the products of abuse or neglect—hang back, working with volunteers and founders Gene and Marietta Avery to grow and recover. As a licensed wildlife rehabilitator, Gene provides medical care to the often malnourished birds and ensures that they receive a rich diet of nuts and fruit.
Gene and Marietta Avery founded The Priceless Parrot Preserve to care for neglected and abandoned exotic birds. Their goal is twofold: to educate the public about the birds both as pets and wild creatures, and to give a permanent home to mistreated and unwanted birds. The couple originally adopted the birds out of their own pockets, but formed their own preserve when confronted with the sheer number of birds in need. Today, they specialize in taking in larger birds such as macaws and cockatoos that demand more attention and other birds that might be considered unadoptable.
