Construction Diaries: Sara + Mike – Vol. II

The duo continues the video tour of their 1929 home renovation

First-time homeowners Sara and Mike have big plans for their Tudor in  Bronxville, NY. We asked the couple to share a “selfie” tour of their Sweeten project. To tackle the renovation, the couple posted their project on Sweeten, a free service matching renovators with vetted general contractors, and chose a design-build firm. 

In this set of videos, they take us to the second floor showing us their two bathrooms—a Jack-and-Jill and a master bath. We then get a peek at the in-progress stages of both floors.
