Audubon Renters Become Audubon Homeowners

Colin Mullen, a brewer at Barley John’s Brewpub in New Brighton and Laura Fryberger, owner of the local event planning company, Flings Event Design, purchased their Arthur Street bungalow in the Audubon Park neighborhood in May 2008, just a few months before their scheduled wedding in September of 2008.

The couple rented one unit of a duplex on Buchanan Street for 3 years prior to the decision to buy in the neighborhood. Laura loves the feeling of community and connection to the Northeast arts scene. Colin likes the quick and convenient access to downtown, his workplace, and all necessary goods like Eastside Co-op and the Quarry businesses.

Both enjoy supporting local businesses so they enjoy walking to the Johnson Street merchants like Pop! Restaurant, Dabble, Rewind Audubon Coffee, and most recently Crafty Planet.
