Slow but sure in San Francisco…

Sarah - December 12, 2007

We’re officially in the design phase of our project and realizing it’s much more difficult than expected (more on that soon), so we apologize for the lack of posts. Congrats to Kersten & Tai and Chris for making so much headway. We’re also trying to keep warm in our temporary living space, which is without heat and will remain that way for some time. Don’t feel too bad for us though because it is San Francisco, and personally I don’t think it gets that cold here. Nonetheless, I wanted to share a before and after photo of our temporary living space. As mentioned before we’re living in about 150 square feet of our house, while the rest has been completely gutted. I will share more photos of our temporary living space later this week.
It might not look like much compared to all of the excellent renovations featured on RenovationVoyeur but it was actually about a months worth of work; removing a horrific drop ceiling and wood paneling, adding insulation in a few key places, installing a temporary plywood floor, sealing windows, installing electrical outlets, and painting about 10 coats of white paint to help make the space livable.

Stay tuned later this week for more images of our living space, as well as some updates to come on the design phase of our project. You can see more photos from our project here.

A few photos before the demo

Sarah - November 21, 2007

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Since we do not have a kitchen of any sort (still washing dishes in the bathroom), we’re heading to southern California and letting someone else do the cooking. We’re obviously not lifting a hammer this week so I thought I’d share a few photos of the house before we demoed the interior walls. It was a real mess. Enjoy!

Greetings from San Francisco!

Sarah - November 17, 2007

In August of 2007 my husband Joe and I purchased a very old, very dirty house in the Potrero Hill neighborhood of San Francisco. Our plan is to renovate the entire house in stages and mostly on our own. Renovation voyeur, was nice enough to include us in the ongoing renovation section of this site.

Our house was built in the 1920’s and is a very simple structure. It was listed as a three bedroom, one bath house with a big, overgrown yard. Since we bought the house in August we demoed nearly all of the interior walls. It was an extremely dirty job due to the old lath and plaster. We also modified about 150 square feet of living space so we could inhabit the house. We officially moved in a few weeks ago and we are slowly adjusting to the tiny space and lack of heat, which is not unlike camping.

In addition to the ongoing updates we’ll add to this site, we also have a house renovation blog called, House&Fig. There you can read about all kinds of things such as resources for building materials, green-methods, how-to videos, and general home design.

We hope you enjoy reading about our project and welcome your feedback and suggestions.

Sarah & Joe
