Welcome to Brick City Love!
We’re a couple of twenty-somethings starting a new chapter in this awesome city called Newark.
We’ve lived in Newark (aka: Brick City) for 3 years and have seen it change so much in that short time. We’re excited to start putting down roots and already made friends in the neighborhood. Which is good because our new home needs a lot of love. Check out these colors!
(this isn’t our stuff, by the way)
Can you say Painting Party?? And that’s just the first floor!
We’ve got some structural issues to deal with; the back soffit is rotted, doors need to be replaced, the front porch drains TOWARD the house (instead of away), and a myriad of smaller projects.
6 (will-never-work) fireplaces!!!
(we found the missing center piece in the backyard still intact!)
Ok; that last one doesn’t quite measure up with the other 4 but at least it’s something.
(+1 more fireplace that’s not-yet-pictured)
Swoon. Oh the potential.
We’re so excited to get started and plan on chronicling the process here, at Brick City Love. We hope you’ll join us!!
