House Tour

We purchased our house in the summer of 2016 and have been restoring and improving it since the day we got our hands on the keys. Old homes require a unique kind of patience, tenacity, and strength-of-will and lucky for us (and the house) we’ve got all 3. We are DIYing as much as we can while we fix up this 1929 tudor-ish brick home in Pittsburgh, PA and sharing our progress on this blog as we go.

If you want to what our house looked like when we first saw it, take a tour of the first-floor listing photos and the second-floor listing photos.
