About Us

Thanks for stopping by!

We bought our 1920's colonial in June 2010.  We fell in love with its charm, high ceilings, and the details: original trim, glass door knobs, wood floors and the stained glass window.

In our neighborhood, each original house was designed by the same architect and has a stained glass window on the stairwell landing.  Each window is unique and the “signature” of the house.  Ours is an abstract bird - and one of our favorite features.

The house has great bones, but it needs a ton of work.  We’re regular people with minimal DIY experience who are just trying to turn our house into a cozy home.  We’re not “show house” people hoping that our kitchen ends up in a magazine.  We’re real people who want a comfortable house that works for the way we live for our family.  Things get messy, it's not perfect, and we consider our home a work in progress. On a tight budget and tight schedules (since we both work full time and have a toddler!), little by little we're tackling projects and making improvements to our little yellow house.  We've come a long way, but we have along way to go.

We hope you'll come back and visit often!
