On Friday, good friends of mine closed on an amazing old house in this classic neighbourhood in Halifax called the Hydrostones. The houses are cinder block row houses that have been around for close to 100 years. Oodles of charm and character. We toured through their new abode on Friday night and I was practically salivating at all of the potential. I'm SO excited to see how their house transforms.

The house also has a loft area, where they exposed part of this wall:
And revealed this:
