We’re Jordan and Barry, AKA the Brownstone Boys!
We’re designers, DIY-ers, renovators, and restorers. We have a passion for old homes and everything that comes along with them: the details, the quirks, the character, and the especially the parts that need lots of love. We bought our 130 year old Brooklyn brownstone in 2018 and have been restoring it ever since. We started a blog and Instagram account the day we closed and have documented our journey. One of our favorite things about it has been being able to help people who have reached out to us over the years. Now, it has developed into a full-time business for us designing and managing brownstone renovations all over Brooklyn and NYC!Learn More
