It’s not much now, but we finally closed on our new home - The Railing Shop!
We started the RFP process to buy this unique (condemned) commercial building back in June of 2016. We won the RFP in January of 2017. After almost 10 months of hard work, we got the new design approved by the Historic Preservation Council and can begin work on our new home in Historic Dayton’s Bluff (St. Paul). Couldn’t have done it without my beautiful and trusting wife, our parents, our builder Michael Anschel of Otogawa-Anschel Design+Build, city council woman Jane Prince, Carol Carey at Historic Saint Paul, Joe Musolf at St. Paul Planning & Economic Development and our lawyer Rebecca Heltzer at Heltzer Law.

Spending the weekend in the woods. Challenge: shoot a deer before killing my iPhone battery.
Yay for #dogfridays at @spyder_trap
Sure, it says "Kid's Small." But I know what your trying to say: "Adult Large." #ChallengeAccepted #GinjaNinja
