Restoring an 1890’s Victorian, DIY Style

Dirty Gert, as we lovingly called her, was our first house and first major remodeling project. And what a project it was…. we devoted endless weekends and countless late nights for over three years to get her back in fighting shape. We learned a lot, especially when we made mistakes. Worth it? Absolutely. We sold our house a few years ago to move south (out of the Syracuse snow belt) but we keep the site up to motivate others to take on their own DIY adventures.We’ll do it all again someday, but right now we have a toddler keeping us busy.

To help you navigate the madness that is our project list, below is a sampling of the major projects we tackled:
