Dreams of a Brownstone

Posted on

Most people dream of white picket fenced in house to raise there family in.  I grew up dreaming of a Brownstone or Row House to live in.  After getting married I realized it’s not practical or realistic for the type of people that Steve and I are.  Mostly because we are suburban people instead of city dwellers.  I grew up in Massachusetts in a historic 19th century  home and ever since I have loved great high ceilings and detailed moldings.   Recently I got to live through a blogger’s Brownstone renovation in Brooklyn.  Enjoy her transformation and follow her blog A Brooklyn Limestone in progress.

  1. Pris, I tell Ben all the time that all I want is to live in a brownstone! He’s not as much into it as I am, but I love cities so maybe I can convince him.
