My Home (s)

Stanley Tudor Revived

After more than a year of hoping, planning, and waiting, we bought a 1937 Tudor revival-style home from a neighbor a block from the house I grew up in.

Here's the before photos, and here's the before video tour. See all posts about the house/progress here.

For more updates you can follow along on Instagram!

525 SF Historic Apartment

While waiting for the Stanley Tudor Revived, we lived in a 1-bedroom apartment in a cute old building. See the tour here!

Stanley 90's Reno

In October 2016 we bought a 90's 2-story home that had been a rental for 10+ years and was damaged and smelly but altogether sound. We immediately began renovations throughout the entire home, including drywall repair, new paint and floors, lighting upgrades, and kitchen and bathroom remodels.With 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, we plan to stay in this home for a long time! See the "before" video tour here, before photos hereweekly reno updates here, and design and projects here.

Update: See the "after" video tour here! See full before/after post here and hear a little about the real estate side and see the before/after LISTING photos here!

Bright & Glam Townhouse

In 2012 we designed and moved into our first home, a new construction 3-story townhouse with 3 beds and 2.5 baths. I did plenty of DIY projects throughout and put so much love into this home! We still own it and it is currently rented. View the tour of that home here.
