Our Big Home Renovation

I’ve been going on and on about how busy Laura and I have been over the past two months renovating our new home – a 1,300 square foot loft in the Rossmor building in downtown Saint Paul. Many of you have asked to see photos of the project, so I thought this would be a good opportunity to try an alternate format for a blog post.  Here’s a gallery of photos documenting the transformation of our place from “before” to “after.”  Enjoy!
