Dad at 144 Mount Vernon Ave
Jodi and I used to live in an old Victorian home in historic Port Norfolk, Va, which we renovated to a large degree. We loved it! Soon after we moved in, my parents moved into a house down the street. (Unfortunately Google's data for each of those is a few houses off, but you get the idea.)

Well, Dad's never been able to leave well enough alone (for which I love him dearly) and – being an architect with a penchant for history – he went and started himself a home show to help others learn how to restore and renovate homes in several of Portsmouth's historic neighborhoods, including Port Norfolk. There's even an article that appeared on the front page of the local newspaper. (PDF version with picture)

Go Dad!!
