Couple remade new Laurel townhouse to suit their young family

Billy Carr, the grandson of a Columbia founder, is something of a Howard County pioneer himself. Carr, with his wife, Faryn, and their two young children, were the first to move into townhouses in a new development in Laurel.

While many people buy new houses because they are ready to live in, literally turn the key, move in and live their lives, the Carrs wanted to make their new space their own for their young family, and embarked on a minor renovation and repainting before they even moved in.

Carr’s grandfather was Willard Rouse, who founded the planned community of Columbia 50 years ago with his brother James.

Carr grew up in Columbia and went to graduate school at Hunter College in New York. That’s where he met Faryn, a native of Houston. She was a student at the time at the Laboratory Institute of Merchandising, a fashion college in the city.
