When my husband and I purchased our house in 2006, we were looking for a small, urban home in need of some serious TLC. After a house-hunting experience worthy of its own reality TV show, we finally found an 800 SF, 1910 fixer-upper that hadn’t seen a real upgrade in forty years! Since then, we’ve spent the last five years reinventing our home with thoughtful decisions and creative strategies that make the most of a small space and modest budget. Ultimately, our Slow Home goals are to create a home that is comfortable, efficient and will be around for the next 100 years.
