POPSUGAR: What inspired you to turn your home into a space for concerts and events?
Gavin O'Neill: With a 2,000-square-foot space and vaulted ceilings, Jeremy and I quickly realized the potential it had for events. One of our first events was for a friend's birthday party last March. Her favorite band was in town and since we had the space, we decided to let them play a small acoustic set. After the first song, Jeremy and I knew it was something we couldn't live without. By July, we hosted our first Cotton Mill Live concert. There's something special that happens when you create a space that in turn invites creation. We're addicted.
