Virtual Shotgun House Tour: Explore the home of Ryan Bordenave
Click here to register for this Zoom webinar.
Explore the beautifully restored, circa-1912 home of Ryan Bordenave, who bought the Mid-City house in 2005 and renovated it, doing much of the work himself and with the help of his brother-in-law and his father. The house had been owned by a woman who lived there for nearly 60 years, passing away in her 90s. The property was badly in need of work when Bordenave, just 27 years old at the time, got it. “There was no running water when I bought the house, and the electrical system needed a complete modernization. It was still running on fuses and knob-and-tube. All of the walls were cracked, and the leaking tub created a hole in some of the floorboards. It was pretty rough,” he said. Today, the home has been completely updated and is a sophisticated yet cozy retreat filled with artwork and music that Bordenave loves.
This event is free to attend. Suggested donation of $25.
