The Garfield Project

The Garfield Project is our restoration of a Minneapolis bungalow built in 1924. This home has seen a few changes over the years including 3 windows hidden with paneling (probably sometime in the 1960’s). Updates to our restoration progress will be published here or on Instagram Stories.

Demolition (Stage 2)

First, we removed the 1970's paneling. The adhesive made an interesting pattern on the wall.

The 1970’s paneling was removed from the wall separating the dining room from the kitchen. Adhesive from the paneling made an interesting pattern on the wall.

We removed dining wall to kitchen and exposed the brick chimney. The chandelier will be painted and reused.

The Seward Project

The Seward Project is our restoration of a Minneapolis 2-story home built in the 1800’s. This home has over 100 years of stories to tell. For instance, there was no original indoor plumbing in this house! Can you imagine using an outhouse when it was -40°F?
