Here’s a little house tour of our first house, an1800’s rowhouse in the city that proved to be a challenging and very rewarding never-ending project. I’ve also included a list of sources at the bottom of the page. So, take a peak at what was goin’ down in our 1st house and see how many tweaks & changes you can find from picture to picture.

Spoiler Alert: there’s a lot!
