My first post…

This Old House!

My husband and I fell in love with this 1887 Victorian as soon as we saw it.  Before we could say, “but wait, should we really leave Manhattan?!?” the sale was closed and we were moving.  We love the house, we love the neighborhood, we love having more space than we could have imagined in our NYC-400-sqaure-foot-railroad apartment, and we even (so far) love the commute.  I hope this blog will help keep our friends and family informed of our progress, showcase our hard work and maybe offer some helpful hints along the way.  We’re on a budget and learning as we go, inspired by the DIY-ers who have come before us.  I’m pretty crafty — as in, I’m not afraid of a sewing machine, and my husband Chris is pretty handy — as in, he can fix a washing machine with a zip tie.  We’re five months in with no end in sight, but loving every minute!
