From one mansard to another

I just came across a blog about life in an old brick house in St. Louis. Sound familiar? Yeah, it’s not This Hipp Life. It’s what I want This Hipp Life to be someday: detailed, inspirational, and beautiful.

In the meantime, I’m happy with sloppy, amusing, and passably attractive.

Check out third story(ies) if you get a chance. The rehab slide shows are fascinating. These bloggers performed a total gut rehab — way more intense and time-consuming than we Hipps are willing to take on, but amazing to look at anyway. And that third floor kid’s room? I want to have that room, and I am 35.9 years old. Imagine how much fun it must be for a little girl!

So from one mansard to another…thanks for giving This Hipp Life something to aim for.

No, I was not asked or paid to write this post. I just saw the blog, liked it, and thought it was worth sharing. I don’t even know the person (people?) who writes third story(ies) although, based on the age and style of their house, I’m pretty sure they live nearby.
