The one in Woodbridge

  • Woodbridge pub is like foodie heaven. I love that place. I hope this works out, this house has amazing potential and I can't wait to be able to ride my bike to come see you guys.
  • Looks like an awesome place to fix up!
  • Holy crap. I bet this house even has a drawing room! Or was it an antechamber? I wasted a lot of time trying to figure out what fancy mansion room came up on twitter months ago and came up empty-handed.
  • wow. It's beautiful! I'm not handy at all, but I'll try to help out if I can. Congratulations guys!
  • Can only imagine the history of your future home. I have friends that live around the corner of Woodbridge Pub. Glad that you folks are going to be in the neighborhood. Looking forward to a future visit. Congrats.
  • Gorgeous! Love that attic. Look forward to seeing this house grow over the years. No doubt you will have little time to be bored! :)

    so... guess I need to bring tools again... to do some electric... and fix stuff... again. AWESOME!!! :D
  • Careful that you're not biting off more than you can chew. My girlfriend was looking at this with me, she mentioned that her parents did this exact thing at one point. They bought a house that was less run-down than this one is with the intention of fixing it up. From my understanding, even after over a decade of work, they still didn't have it in what they considered to be decent condition and they sunk a very significant amount of money into the house (even though they did most of the work themselves) which they did not recover. They vowed never to do that again as it is simply too costly if you don't have a lot of disposable income.

    That said, it definitely has potential to be a beautiful house... if you are able to sink a lot of time and money into it. I'll be rooting for you if you do end up buying it.
  • I'm slowly discovering it's less run down than it appears.

    Q, I suspect the entire house needs to be rewired :-/ Might be more than you want to get yourself into but I'd welcome you to take a look.
  • Assuming everything goes as planned for me attending EPIC, I'll bring my tools and, like the good old days, I'll be more than happy to put some elbow grease into ICHQv2!
  • That house is so gorgeous it's insane. I've dreamt of a house like that for years and years! The porch and the turret room, the giant attic, all the wood detail. Sigh. Beautiful.

    Ditto. I hope to have a house with the unique details and rich history such as this one when I'm ready to own a home. Very, very proud of these guys more than jealous, though. ;)
  • I just started reading your blog. It's a cold day in Appleton WI, nice to read about your adventures. When I was a young high schooler, we lived out in Utica - early 1970's. We would still go into Detroit for shopping at Hudsons. Still had so much charm to the city. I've watched from afar, all these years, to the demise, death of Detroit. I have my fingers crossed that the City is still alive and breathing. Time will tell.
