Our first choice of contractor was a bit too expensive for our budget so we decided to bid out the job.
We are happy to say that with the help from our amazing architect we have gotten approval on the project to start swinging hammers!
So our challenge in adding a guest bathroom is to make something that will be brand new fit with the house and our style.
We plan on building a deck on the parlor level and the mudroom below it has been causing us a few problems.
We need to build a wall to separate our apartment from the rental unit and we're trying to figure out where.
We knew coming into this project that the house itself would present problems of its own, but expected that dealing with the DOB would be one of the more frustrating parts of the process.
We’re leaning toward the larger kitchen and sacrificing the powder room to the renovation gods.
We want to reproduce some high-end designs we’ve stalked, using less-expensive and discounted materials.
Our initial plan was to tear down a wall and create the type of open, airy space we saw in renovated buildings.
With the closing behind us and our dream of owning a Brooklyn brownstone a reality, we’re ready to transform it into our home.
