We always enjoy the peeks into New Yorkers' home that The New York Times provides — the Habitats column of the Real Estate is a weekly dose of a REAL home. This week, illustrator Robbin Gourley and Jeffrey Stern share their renovated 19th-century brownstone in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. A massive DIY project that the couple slowly worked on for years...

This is a DIY labor of love. Lots of sample sale finds and secondhand scores furnish the space — including a Viking stove the couple bought from a neighbor who never cooked.
