Queen Street

Throw-back Thursday to an entry I wrote two years ago and never posted! cheers to Jessie and Matt, who have since taken on an addition to their house and a family addition.

A while ago, I acted as preservation consultant on a lovely little two bedroom house over in Cleveland-Holloway.  I’ve long admired Jessie and Matt for their deliberate and thoughtful contributions to the neighborhood, and they got this place when it was boarded, vacant, a sometimes-home to squatters, and seriously depressing.  Now, with a bright coat of paint, it’s an absolutely charming rental house, just up the block from them.  (It doesn’t hurt that Jessie is a photographer, and many thanks for use of her stellar photos.)


One in-process photo just so you can appreciate all they went through. I remember being desperately hot this day, and trying to not melt.







Can you tell which one has been redone?
