This is our little Victorian. She was built in the 1890's and seems to have survived all of those nasty quakes just fine. When we bought her, it was this yucky brown color. It actually looks nicer in this picture than it did in real life. I thought it resembled diarrhea. My grandmother called it "Ol' two eyes" when I sent her a picture of it. This was likely due to the awful aluminum windows that someone put in in the 60's. To the left of those stairs is a little studio apartment.
We bought the house with the intention of fixing it and flipping it within 2 years. That obviously didn't happen. My best friend in this venture is my little green lantern. I'll tell you more about him tomorrow.
We've been renovating for 5+ years now. We kicked into high gear when I was 7 months pregnant to finish remodeling our 1880's Victorian as quickly as possible. Maybe a little about life, survival, dogs, design, photography, the beach and the madness in between. - Lisa S.
