Inside a recent restoration

Local design blog This Young House Young House Love takes a peek inside the 2005/2006 renovation at 608 North 24th Street:

When Diana began house hunting a year ago, she knew she wanted a fixer-upper. […] She wanted to put her family’s renovation and restoration skills to the test (her dad is a master woodworker, for instance) to create a fresh, personality-filled home that she could save from demolition in the process (it was already condemned when they snagged it for only 45K). And check out some of the amazing exterior details that they introduced along the way – from a new, stacked balcony and fence (with hand-carved accents courtesy of her father) to the classic trimwork and columns (some of which her pops created by hand to match the existing exterior woodwork).
