Welcome

After living at 118 Henry Street for 1 year 8 months, I’ve finally decided to keep track of my work on the house.

118 Henry Street is my third house. My first two houses being 1960ish vintage, brick veener, ranch, American “tenements”. Both boxy, middle class homes were the epitome of mass produced, middle class style and function. Not that I liked either of these other houses, they were just “easy”. Easy to find, easy to finance, and easy to forget.

118 Henry Street is a “going home” house for me. Having grown up in a couple dozen “old” houses and never having lived in a brick ranch before buying one, I’m finally comfortable in my house skin after over 25 years of home ownership.
