We bought a 1921 rowhouse on a lovely one-block street in Petworth in October of 2010. These are the photos from the process of remodeling and repairs over the ensuing weeks, months and years. We've hired pros a few times for some things — gutting and remodeling the kitchen, hiring subs to finish the basement. But outside of that, we've been on our own to make this house what we want it to be.

I'm decently handy, I've got some tools, some books to guide me and the miracle of the internet — how did anyone learn before the internet? — but the question remains:

Will we find our inner Bob Vila and make this old house our new house?
