Our House

We started Burritos and Bubbly while we were updating and restoring our first home, a 125-year-old registered historic site in the city (Ohio City to be exact), but after five years there we needed a change of pace, a lot less house to take care of, and a home that could truly reflect our current style (without guilt or a historic review board to deal with!). So we moved to the suburbs. In 2015 we bought a 1700-square-foot, split-level home in a small town 20 minutes west of Cleveland, within walking distance of Lake Erie. The new house was built in 1963 and what it lacks in interesting architecture or historic charm, it makes up for in potential. We love that we have a blank slate to turn this house into the perfect home for our modern family!
