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.

For the last 18 months or so I have been working on a project in Reading PA that is a new Pediatrics Unit for the hospital. I started this project with early client meetings and followed it through to the end with construction administration, so this is my first true project of my own. There was a party at the hospital to open the unit on Wednesday, and the unit officially opens to patients on Friday. These aren't the super fancy professional photos, but I will post those eventually, these do give a sense to the space. So far it has been well received by the staff, and the one child to visit for our photo shoot really enjoyed the playroom and seemed to think the red crush acrylic had goldfish in it! The top picture is the nurses station with the playroom in the back, and the lower photo shows one of 2 color schemes for the foot wall of the room and the white piece on the wall holds the 32" plasma TV that is connected to the playstation 3 with Blue Ray in each room. Quite nice amenities for sure.....
