About Us

filthHey there! Thanks for stopping by.  We are restoring a brownstone in Brooklyn (on a budget), so this may take a while… While we’re pretty handy and are doing most of the work ourselves, we know there are some projects that are beyond our pay grade (hello plumbing!)  With some careful planning, we should be finished in 30 years or so. Our progress (or lack thereof) is documented here.

Got a question? Drop us a line at pinkbrownstone(AT)gmail(DOT)com

  1. Hi, I have an old set of pocket doors, they were in an attic from a house built in 1859, in southern New Jersey! If you are are interested or know someone that are looking for a set please let me know! I can send pics if interested! Thanks

  2. Hi, Thanks for sharing your project. My partner and I are also restoring a place in Brooklyn on a budget. What a long road! We have reached the facade and are having so many discussions. What are you doing with your facade?

    • Hello! We stripped the paint, repointed the stone with a lime based mortar and that’s about it. The stone was still in good condition so we didn’t need any additional repairs. We also patched some holes in the tin cornice and painted it.
