Sarah's Former High School Flame Home

House Call

Name: Sarah
Location: Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts

My home is in the former Jamaica Plain High School on Sumner Hill. The building is surrounded with gorgeous Victorian homes and green space. I purchased my unit with wall to wall carpeting, naked walls, and unbeknownst to me....a leaky outside wall.

After a long haul of repointing the 100 year old bricks, I was finally able to make my home "me"! With a bit of paint, a handful of craigslist finds, and some love....it's finally home. There's nothing like finally having the space to sit your closest friends at one table and eat great food and delicious drinks!'

Thanks, Sarah!
