This is the first post of our new house blog. We have just closed on our new house today. I'll have more pictures after we get into the house tomorrow, but for now, here's a shot of the outside.

We're having difficultly deciding on exactly the style of the house. We know it was built around 1915. It's mostly brick as you can see, but has some Tudor style wood and render in various places on the exterior.

We were drawn to the house by the (never-painted) trim-work on the inside, the size of the house, and the challenge of restoring and updating an old home such as this. I'll post pictures shortly of some of the historical elements.

There is lots to do, and some things to undo. The house has an interesting history which we'll post more of soon as well. We hope you will join us in following our journey as we renovate our new home.


  1. Lovely house - it's nice to see another brick Tudor out there. I look forward to seeing more.

  2. Looks like a great house. Wonderful fireplaces, trimwork and even some origonal light fixtures.
