Teaching Old Houses New Tricks

Renovations & Real Estate

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve already met Bonnie. She’s an adorable 1940 brick cottage with a sassy little roof swoop over an arched front porch entry. We closed on her on January 8th, and are SO excited to get started renovating and bringing her back to life. I believe that every house has a sort of soul, and if you can get to know a house, it’ll tell you what it wants to be and look like. Maybe this is why I love old homes–they have stories to tell. And just like people, the more time you take to get to know their stories, the better you’ll know them and what they want to be. Bonnie is no exception.
