If you didn’t catch my big move news, I’ll quickly fill you in. I’m officially moving into my very own place in Astoria… at some point. It didn’t happen in December but It WILL happen this year (keeping my fingers crossed for April)!

The space that I am moving into is a home owned by my family that my grandfather purchased many years ago. It’s a place that’s close to my heart and meaningful to me since it’s the first place my father lived in when he immigrated to the United States from Greece. It’s definitely a special place and area with lots of history and culture that I can’t wait to explore.

There is a ground floor of the home that we have the opportunity to build out into a one bedroom apartment. When this opportunity arose, I saw it as an amazing way to learn the ins and outs of what it takes to essentially “flip” a space from nothing to something great. As the work has started, this has been a much bigger project than I originally anticipated but I’ve been loving every minute of it.

Here are some before shots of what the ground floor looked like when we first started the work. I know what you’re thinking..HOW are we going to turn this into a one bedroom apartment.. well we shall see!

I’ll be documenting the progress and the renovation journey on the blog so be sure to follow along for updates!IMG_5687 IMG_5686 IMG_5014 IMG_5013

  1. How exciting Natasha. I know this project will be a wonderful experience for you. Hopefully I’ll get to see it first hand. You are a very busy young lady. What don’t you do?
