Here We Go!

Family and friends, this blog is for you!

Almost a year and a half has passed since Ben, Chris, and Phil bought an OLD brick house in Old North St. Louis, February 2005. The house was built sometime around 1864 and has only been in the hands of 3 owners prior to us. Since we bought the place, we've been working throughout the house, relaying brick walls and chimneys, rebuilding part of our roof, re-opening doorways that had been closed off, plastering, rehabbing windows, and more. We've made a lot of headway, but we still have a ways to go.

We're aiming to get near some semblance of completion (or at least a stopping point) by October 1, 2006. We've got our work cut out for us! The next four months will be consumed with many long days and late nights of work as we bear full-tilt towards our goal.

Since this project has and will no doubt continue to consume a lot of our free-time, we want to use this blog to share with you our progress and our thoughts. In the next week or so, I'll post some pictures of projects past and where we are at currently. As we progress, we will try to update the site every other week or so to document our progress. We hope you'll come along for the ride!
