I’d love to restore an historic home to its former glory, but I’m just not sure I have the time/energy/money/patience to do it. So in the meantime, I’ll live vicariously through An Urban Cottage. The blogger is restoring an 1842 Greek Revival in Cambridge and tracing the previous owners and documenting the frustrating permitting process along the way. If old houses are your things, grab a coffee, your computer and start at the beginning. It’s worth the read. â€” Sarah L.
