In 2005, after considering several old commercial buildings around town, Todd Keebler purchased this garage on the Southside, with plans to build up and convert it into a modern living space. He paid $60,000 for the property.
He also considered these two buildings and came very close to buying the Turner Detective Agency! (on Doughboy Square in Lawrenceville, for $24,000). The building on the left was an old VFW hall in Polish Hill.
Two years later, after zoning hearing entanglements and protests from nervous neighbors,
Todd and his Mom Alina, had designed the house and completed the renovation. Side note: Todd has a particularly awesome Mom who does great home renovation work herself. Hopefully we’ll be sharing her adventures on the site soon.

Todd admired this sofa from Perlora, but wasn’t excited with the price tag. He ended up combing craigslist for a few months and found the sofa, gently used for 30% of the original price. Awesome.
Ryah & Todd with Construction Junction find as a backdrop. These were red and scuffed when purchased. Todd filled them in, sanded, primed and painted. Their origin is unknown. My best guess was giant apostrophes – ??
