What we are doing:

In what spare time we have, we decided to spend it (and our savings) on remodeling our rowhouse in South Philly. When we purchased our casa it was a 3 story, 5 bedroom, 1 bath that hadn't been touched in 50+ years. It's currently a 4 bed, 2 bath construction site with so much more to do it's hard to believe.

We use this blog to mark progress, say hi to friends and family, rant about the process of remodeling, and try to have some fun along the way.

We took down most of the wall between the two 3rd floor bedrooms to open up the space, and also took down some of the larger supports for the plaster ceiling. We are also trying to sell the rug and runner that came with the house, so we had to clean up dirt under the runner on the stairs that was easily 50+ years old. Not a particularly fun job, but it is great to see progress! Bryan is much better at the heavy lifting, and I do better with the photography of the action....

We are so impressed by your enthusiasm and ingenuity! And LOVE the pics! What a great idea so you can see your progress. Having just gone through this last year, we understand your pain! The patio and the DOOR look terrific Bryan! Are you going to keep all hardwood floors? Keep it up! Love, Aunt Marilyn and Uncle Joe
