My husband, Chris, and our partner, Tom, and I are architects. We've done all the design and actual work of renovating it for the eight years we've owned the building. We like the way things are turning out. It's been slow going but we feel good about the work we accomplished. We particularly like this apartment and hope you do too.
The bluestone, brick pavers and other rocks in the courtyard we found either on the surface or buried below layers of asphalt, gravel and dirt. We felt lucky to have them around with which to pave the courtyard. The tree was a sapling which we transplanted from the other side of the building. For years we've tried identifying what type it is. If you stay here and figure it out, please tell us.
