And a Boston renovation to add to the mix

The “after” photo of the much-loved Victorian in the Boston area where I earned my renovation chops

Here’s the lady who taught me that nothing goes exactly as planned with a renovation. This one involved a lot more of my own sweat equity because I bought young and couldn’t afford to have all the work done for me. She was my heart and soul for a long time and she nearly broke me in 2016 when we decided to convert the basement into a condo unit. But (I think) it was all worth it. It was really rewarding to see the transformation of this house over the 22 years when I was one of her custodians.
