Welcome to Melissa and Matt’s home renovation blog!  We are first-time home buyers who have embarked on a journey of home renovation and repair.  Follow us as we attempt to gut kitchens, change layouts and kill weeds.

Our house is location in the Old Irving neighborhood in Chicago and is a basic frame house built at the turn of the century.  Our goal is to update the systems and look of the house but keep some of the vintage syle which makes Chicago homes so wonderfully unique.  We’ll be posting pictures, advice (what works and probably moreso what doesn’t) and we’ll also keep a list of contractors and other professionals that help us.  Also, we’re doing everything on a tight time line and budget so will be trying to DIY as much as possible!Our House
