Duplex Built 1907
Daniel Coleman
Remodeling an old house while living in it can become overwhelming. Recently the grand old duplex at 35th & Cedar—just a stone’s throw from Matt’s Bar, Blackbird Music, and Brothers Electric—transferred ownership. Reclaiming vintage charm can be a challenge. I touched up beautiful old woodwork, upgraded the kitchens and bathrooms and brought the front entry from ‘rental-rehab’ back to a more original state. I reanimated the rehab, but the previous owner brought in years of love as reflected in a poem he shared with me… “May this house shelter your life….Blessed by peace the world cannot give....Where the possibilities that sleep in the clay of your soul can emerge....” excerpts from "...For A New Home" by John O’Donohue
