    Default A Brick 1840s ‘Eyesore’ Brought Back to Life

    This 1840s brick house bought and renovated by Lee Caswell and Blaise Gaetz mixes new and old throughout. The brick portion of the building is original, while the extension, covered by cedar shingles, was rebuilt.

    Well it's still and eyesore in the inside.

    I love the space and the outside, but the decor is fairly terrible.

    i thought the shot of the outside was BEFORE they fixed it.

    Too much going on, too much stupid shit inside, burn it, start over.

    I'd definitely do the bathroom over - it looks like the washroom of an tenement house.

    Is that a Canadian tradition thingy to have moose antlers over the dining table? Cause I have having trouble seeing Grimm actually sit there.

    I'd have to burn everything inside it and the bathroom would need to be redone as the tiles reminds me of a 1970's public toilet. I can almost smell the stale piss when I look at it.

    I hate the antlers and the rest is way too dark but I do like the red stained glass detail in the kitchen door.

    i love the antlers but i think they would look better in a more modern setting.
    as for the house, i'm not impressed. i hate the outside of the extension - those shingles are fug.
    and the inside is a mess, too much going on and i really hate the stupid urn in the bathroom and the kitchen lamps are hideous too.
