Victorian House Restoration

We bought this Victorian home, circa 1894, to restore it to its original grandeur. We have torn out fake low ceilings to reveal 12 foot ceilings among many other surprises. The home sits in a part of town forgotten by everyone except the down and out. It is our intention to help the neighborhood return to its former glory one house at a time. We have bought 11 houses within three blocks of our house and we are renovating them and renting them to college students and young people one home at a time.

Thank you all for your positive feedback. I think most of the renters do understand and appreciate what a big undertaking we have done. They are really sweet young people and most of them know each other so they love the community feel. Right now we only have 6 of the houses renovated out of the 11 so it is a work in progress.
