Tim Seggerman, an architect and builder, found this abandoned Brooklyn home in 1987 when it was put up for auction and ended at a price of $140,000.
It had been left abandoned for 20 years and was in complete shambles. But since he is a carpenter and builder he knew he could fix it.
To buy it he needed to put 10% down ($14,000) which was his entire life savings at the time. Boldly, he went for it anyway. From 1987 until today the house has made quite the comeback thanks to Tim’s ingenuity.
One of the interesting things to learn from Seggerman and his Brooklyn house project is how his home has evolved over the years just as he has. His house is always changing with him according to his needs.
Even though this isn’t a tiny house, I believe you’ll enjoy and learn a lot from this project (and video) below.
