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.

Some might just call it a door....

But I call it VICTORY!

It's Bryan. Today I completed my 2 week project of creating a new gate/door for our back wall. I started it 2 weeks ago by cutting all of the wood to length and creating the frame (I think Christina posted some pictures). Over the past week after work, I've been sealing the pine, and Christina helped me with the last of that on Thursday.

Anyway, today was the day to assemble, and after about 8 hours in the awesome weather (for once) we now have a gate/door for our back yard into the alley.

Take a look at the pictures, and comment back on how "Great" and "Wonderful" the door is, and even maybe "A feat of engineering and carpentry unmatched since the pyramids". I know....it's true.

Now it's time for a beer!
