House Tour!

Our home was originally a duplex built in the 1930's. We purchased it almost 5 years ago while I was pregnant with our first daughter Gwen.  We bought it for a pretty low purchase price but it was in need of some serious updates and repairs. We've worked slowly and steadily at making it our own!

Welcome to our Home!
