Kate McFadden

Kate McFadden, a web professional “in transition,” got her first writing assignments “years ago” from the county weekly Powhatan Today — as hyperlocal as you get in central Virginia. After discovering the absence of a community blog on Capitol Hill, Kate decided it was time to turn her love of the ‘hood into a resume-enhancing and community-building activity, and TheHillisHome.com was born. As much time as Kate spends in the paint store at Frager’s, and at Port City Java, you’d think she was drawing a hyperlocal salary. You can contact Kate at kate.mcfadden[at]thehillishome.com.

They seem to multiply overnight, oft inspiring just a little bit of house envy for those of us desperate for more closet space, functional layouts and a workable kitchen. Here’s where the Capitol Hill Cluster School’s Renovators […]
