“People should look at a home as a work in progress, a canvas. Through our homes, we show the world what’s important to us.” –Richard Trethewey, This Old House
Here are the basics:
- Two twenty-somethings, Leigh and Paul,
- 1st time home-buyers,
- 1.3 acres of land,
- 1 house built in 1890
- in the Twin Cities metropolitan area,
- in for infinite new experiences, catastrophes and adventures.
This blog serves to document our journey into homeownership and the decision to take on the biggest project of our lives — taking a run-down property and turning it into our own urban hobby farm.
