Here is the kitchen counter, but it is not just a kitchen counter. Look at the pink granite, Bonnie commands, tapping it with perfectly painted fingernails. It came from a bathroom at the old Methodist Hospital. “Isn't that neat?” she says. “Save something old from Omaha and make it new!” Here is the enclosed deck, Bonnie says as she sashays to the front of a friend's condo for sale. But it is not just any ordinary deck. No way.

At the end of a hard day you can sit on this deck, pour yourself a glass of pinot and peer down from your second-floor perch at 11th and Howard Streets.
