In case you didn't know, we bought a building back in July.
Even though it looks like two separate buildings, it's actually just one.  We live on the 2nd and 3rd floor and rent out the bottom.
It was built sometime in the 1930's and has had several layers of renovation over the years.  The previous owners made some awesome changes to the second floor and even put in the kitchen (which is easily one of my favorite spots in the house.)
After a few months of living here, we've discussed several things that we'd like to do to make it even better.  After months of talking and planning, we actually started the renovating process last week.  We're taking it one project at a time starting with a brand new laundry room/closet/storage area.  Since this is a loft, there are no closets in sight which makes storing unsightly things a bit tricky.
So far, we've knocked out some walls and taken up the floor where we had a pretty insane termite issue.  All I can say is Orkin comes highly recommended from us!  
We had a small half bath that we never used, so that will become part of the new laundry area as well.  
Now that we're in the midst of this, I'm having a bit of a hard time with all of the dust and misplaced things.  BUT, I have to keep reminding myself that it's all going to be worth it in the end!

  1. You should do a home tour! You know.. Once it's back together! I'm already in love with it from just peeks and that it's a building downtown. :)
