Greenwood Heights, Brooklyn, NY Renovation


This was an extensive renovation of a 2-family townhouse in South Brooklyn. We kept a lot of the details in this townhouse but moved the rooms around quite a bit. The columns that were in a rear 'library' space were kept in the current kitchen. Two bathrooms were added on the top floor as well as a small home office. A deck, plantings and a fence with embedded lights and cubbies were added to the backyard.

    I grew up in Sunset Park, Bklyn in a very similar rundown townhouse in the 50-60s.Nice to see what it could have been. Hard work does pay off.
