We are building a creative, utilitarian life inside an old Victorian( built in 1898) in the historical "Ghosttown" district of Oakland, CA.
This blog chronicles our experiences renovating this magnificent antique home and how we learn new ways to build, plant, create and explore our creativity.
We'll share our tips and insights with you on how we rehabilitate, remake and refinish this old house so it will last another 100 years in style.
