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.

Household Finds

So we are now officially on our contractors schedule for June 8th which leaves us 2 more weeks for little projects and gathering new things for the house. Since we haven't had much true progress, the top picture shows our new china cabinet, which I was not really looking for, but was being sold at a price I couldn't pass up from a dealer willing to deliver! Now we just have to make it through construction without breaking the 3 panes of curved glass......The bottom picture shows another piece that we bought at an architectural salvage store here in Philly and is a brass shower head, which Marco seems to be quite interested in lately. We hope to use this in our new bathroom. We are off this weekend to another architectural salvage place this time in Baltimore. It has 5 warehouses of glorious items (which I am sure Bryan will love as much as I do) we hope to find a claw foot tub, and pedestal sink for the bathroom.
