We’re at it again. We loved re-making and eventually living in this house. So, after selling it and a quick jaunt to Brooklyn and back, we are excited to get started again.
It’s a good story…
Join us in the journey of our second Philadelphia Row Home renovation at PhillyGarageReno.com – a wider loft-like home that’s basically the width of 2 typical Philly Row Homes with a rich history too.
And if you’re looking for a contractor in the Philly Metro area, check out SJ Design at SJdesignbuild.com. He and his talented team did this house and the new one.

I love the interior railing in this house and have been going crazy looking for the same one for my philly row home. Can you let me know who you used? Thanks
Thanks! We worked with Frank Bendinelli of FWB Welding. Great guy and great work that we were really happy with. http://www.fwbwelding.com (215) 471-5990 Once they installed the metal railing, our contractor installed the wood handrail for the finished look. Good luck!
i’m looking to renovate a row home in Philly and came across your site. i love what you’ve done. you have a beautiful aesthetic sense and an eye for space and detail. do you renovate strictly for your own projects or do you also consult for others? i hope the latter.
Thanks so much for the kind words. We aren’t pros but we are passionate about living in a functional and beautiful home. Good luck with your renovation – it’s a terrific feeling to make a space your own!
Hello! Came across your blog and LOVE everything that you did with your house! My husband and I are thinking about embarking on a South Philly renovation soon- did you like the GC that you worked with? If so, could you post their name/website? It looks like they did pretty awesome work!
Thanks in advance!!
Thanks for your note! We used the same GC for both renovations – so that’s an endorsement! Here’s his site with contact info: SJbuildit.com
Good luck with the renovation!
