Ann Arbor's Fairy Doors

S Main St.
Ann Arbor, MI 48103

About Us:

In a transient town such as Ann Arbor, it often seems that the concept of a "local" Ann Arborite is a fairytale. This is a true tale. I was born and raised here. I even met my wife at the University of Michigan. Our fairytale home on the Old West Side came as a wonderful backdrop for a child's story. At over 100 years old, the floors creaked. Actually, the floors tipped. The center rooms of the house changed elevation by about 2 inches for every 4 feet. Though the Historic Commission deemed there to be "no historical significance" to our home, we began repairing, renovating and expanding it.
