Welcome! Adam and I are building this blog to bring you into our world – that which involves the recent purchase and upcoming renovation of our 100+ year old Victorian home in Yonkers, New York.
The fact that we’ve bought the house is significant for a number of reasons:
1) It means Adam and I are moving in together.
2) It means Adam is moving to New York from Providence.
3) It means we’re both moving to Yonkers. Yeah, Yonkers.
Admittedly, we didn’t know too much about Yonkers when we started looking for houses, only that it was close to Riverdale (part of the Bronx, in New York City), which is where I’m living now, and that we’d heard there were still pretty good house deals to be had there. Admittedly, we’ve owned the house for over three weeks, and I’m still not sure who the mayor is.
(The closing date on the house, just to officially get the date in this blog, was November 18.)
We’re deep in interviews and discussions with contractors; more on that, and the house itself, soon.
Yonkers tidbit: they don’t plow the streets as fast (nor, apparently, as well), as NYC. Guess there’s less at stake for their mayor (whomever he is).
