Renovation and Closing

Renovation Updates

Reno recap! For the last couple of months we have been hard at work in our Back Bay home: replacing the piles in the basement; ripping out floors and ceilings, toilets, and more; replacing the plumbing; re-framing the walls; trying to figure out what all those cables are for; found a skylight, and so much more.
From now on we would love to take you along for the ride. Follow #GI170B (short for our address at 170 Beacon Street) to learn all about our renovation and get behind-the-scenes peaks. We’re excited to share!

The foundation work is almost completed, and many rotten wood pilings have been replaced. Demolition of the rooms upstairs has started.
