Raymond conversion(Raymond, Miss.) Behold the Old Chancery Building that was converted into mixed use. Check out these two apartment/townhomes at one end. One is bare. One is welcoming.

Now if you’re a bonafide recluse and your main goal in life is to restrict the tendency of neighbors and others to knock on your door and visit, then by all means follow the lead of the apartment on the left. We respect the need for privacy, seclusion and isolation.

However, you’re tending toward interacting with the world you live in, being influenced by the beauty that might come your way, and want to put out that vibe, then you want to follow the lead on the right.
