I really can’t believe the amount of help we’ve already had since we bought the one in Woodbridge. A dozen friends have already shown up on short notice (and on Superbowl weekend no less) to help us clear out the house. Several more have given ridiculous amounts of money to help buy materials. Thank you so much.
We’ve set up goals to sponsor each room in the house if you wanted to help out and weren’t sure how. We want to make sure everyone who gives like that is recognized. We set a goal of $10,000 total for all the rooms combined. We basically made that number up and are painfully aware that it may be crazy talk.
Our long-term goal is to restore the house to its former grandeur: restored sash-weight windows, original oak doors and trim, the whole nine yards. That’s going to take a lot of time, and a helluva lot more money than we have yet. It’ll be a labor of love to restore a truly historic property. Right now, we just need to get the house habitable again and by our estimates this is about a third of what that’ll take. We have six months left until we have to move in, ready or not.
Not everyone is going to be able or want to contribute, we know this. We’re going to love having everyone over when this is done all the same. This is for those of you who share the Icrontic HQ dream with us, consequences be damned.
The last five years have been a helluva party. The best events and the best times with the best people. But, man, the next five years? They’ll make the first five feel like a practice round. We hope you’ll join us either way.
