We Created Victorian Splendor from a Wrecked, Former Frat House


In 2000, we bought “as is” a 4500 square-foot, Baltimore Victorian brownstone that had been wrecked by a fraternity. Jill and I had been dating for only six months. We knew nothing about fixing old houses. It was a recipe for disaster. This website tells the story of our efforts to make our love work as we made our old house whole again.

In 2003, we got married in the house. In 2008, THIS OLD HOUSEmagazine did a feature about us. You’ll find lots of before and after photos below.

Our old house adventure continues now as Jill and I have moved to an historic farm, north of Baltimore. The farm house hadn’t been touched since 1959 and so we are now in the process of restoring it to its original Victorian splendor: check it out here. And sign up for our news and updates.

Yours warmly–with much house love:
Ron and Jill
