Tim, Jarod, and their dog Reggie were first-time homebuyers when they began their search for a new place a year and a half ago. Along the way, they came across a renovated unit in a vintage Uptown building that fit the bill and decided to call it home. Although the building had been renovated in the '80s, the unit still needed some updates. And as creative, do it yourself types, Tim and Jarod were prepared to take on the challenge.
