When «That House Downtown» came on the market as a short sale, Ryan and Erin jumped at the chance to purchase the home, despite its dilapidated state. The couple knew the neighborhood well, and though the listing ad described the house as «needs a lot of TLC,» Erin and Ryan saw the property’s potential. The process of converting a run-down, five-unit apartment building to its original glory is a labor of love that Erin has documented on her Instagram account Vine and Vintage.
