About

My name is Chris, and I am an obsessive Historic Preservation nerd, Rochester NY fanatic, local history advocate, and architect in training. I have a long time girlfriend (house repair slave), Kit, who is equally nerdy…about other things…and encourages my neurosis. What will follow on these pages is the record of the ongoing adventures of owning and restoring a special little house, that needs a lot of love. I hope it can be a source of inspiration and entertainment to anyone else out there brave enough to be a good steward to an old building.

Here’s to my perfect, and I do mean perfect, little money pit. Cheers!

  1. Chris,

    I am the Stadtmueller’s grand-daughter. We would love to speak with you and wish you the very best with your project. Looking at your pictures so many features of the house appear to be original. The bedroom with the window bench was my Mom’s bedroom growing up. She plans to reach out to you as well. Best Regards, Debi Keck

  2. Hi Chris! My name is Courtney and I work at the Memorial Art Gallery. I posted the picture of curators poking around in the Times Square Building, and saw your comment that you have pictures of the inside of the building? I’m wondering if you’d be willing to share those! We’re trying to find out as much about the mural that was there as we can. Thanks so much!
