Extreme Home Makeover almost finished at 42 Brattle!

Looking good! It has been a busy summer for the remodeling crew at 42 Brattle and we are just about finished. Thank you to the Massachusetts Historical Commission, the Cambridge Historical Commission and all of the CCAE donors for making this “makeover” happen.
