Wooden House Lovers! Personal and professional projects have gotten in the way of us keeping you up-to-date with all the latest news in the great borough of Brooklyn. We’re still here, and as in love with wooden houses as ever. Stay tuned, because we’ll still be posting from time to time and will even be squeezing in more walking tours this spring!
Chelcey recently started a job at Landmark West! She’s helping preserve the architectural beauty of the Upper West Side. As for me, I want to share with you all my labor of love —  a new site I created for old house lovers near and far. Head on over to CIRCA and start drooling over all the amazing old (cheap!) houses we could have if we all weren’t so in love with Brooklyn <3
